Natalie123, My Family Tree has a branch named
Elliot from my mother's side. They're originally
from the state of Vermont. Do you think there
might be a connection?

Hi Ajax i really don't know, just about all my family is from Newcastle Upon Tyne (at least the one's i know about). My Grandmother's family are originally from Ireland, i found out her maiden name Mcguinness, but my maiden name Elliott end's in 2 T's not one, i don't know if this help's you.
I did try those site's you suggested but most of them are for US and not UK.
Thanks Natalie

Natalie123, just for the record, my " Elliott "
family starts with George Elliott, born in the state
of Vermont,USA. He married Mary Blake, born in the state of Ct.? They had a son named Edwin Cyrus
Elliott in 1845. I have more info from Edwin to the
present, but I don't have information from George
back to Europe. " My Elliott's " have always been
considered as Irish, so we might be cousins from
way back.
