This 16 Generation Chart includes a potential parallel line of Cottons from Landwade in Suffolk.
The majority of John Cotton genealogies include the two lines shown below based on The English Ancestry of Rev. John Cotton of Boston by Horatio Gates Somerby published in 1868.
However, Rev. John Cotton’s line has only been genealogically proven through his grandfather, George Cotton, and no conclusive genealogical proof linking the two line has been found. Additionally, DNA testing to prove a connection between the two lines is not possible because all males in the Landwade line have died off.
