Surname Saturday – Danyell (Danyall)

This week, the surname I am looking at is Danyell.  The only ancestor with this surname is Joana Danyell (or Danyall).

My line is:

1. Lois V. Whimpey

2. Ivon Walter Whimpey (1923-2009)
3. Edith Jean Marr (1922-1990)

4. John Ernest Whimpey (1884-1960)
5. Ivy May Harley (1890-1959)

8. Joseph Whimpey (1848-1919)
9. Sarah Jane Sharp (1853-1906)

16. Joseph Whimpey (1819-1902)
17. Margaret Price (1816-1901)

32. William Whimpey (1789-1870)
33. Elizabeth Clement(s) (1792-1860)

64. Joseph Whimpey (1761-1790)
65. Rebekah Dredge (1760-1844)

128. John Whimpey (1710-1780)
129. Susanna Curtis (1720-1794)

256. Thomas Whimpey (1678-1726)
257. Elizabeth Bigwood (1680-?)

512. Nicholas Whimpey (1650-1721)
513. Ann (surname unknown) (1650-1710)

1024. Thomas Whimpey (1620-1674)
1025. Fortune Draper (1620-?)

2048. Thomas Whimpey (1579-?)
2049. Joan ANTROM

4096. John Whimpey (ca 1540-1588)
4097. Joana Danyell (ca. 1540-?) 

 Since Joana would have been born before parish registers were first kept, I have no information about her birth.  I have also not been able to find a burial entry for her, so at the moment, the only information I have is her marriage to Johes (John) Wimpewe (Wimpey) on 28 August 1566 at St John the Baptist Parish, in Frome, Somerset, England.

* Although the surname Whimpey is spelled in a number of different ways on the parish registers, I have used the spelling Whimpey throughout my database, as this is the spelling used most consistently since the early 1800s by the descendants of John Whimpey (Wimpey) and Susanna Curtis.
