I read about a possible connection in H.M. Kingery's account of the Shields Family. The Shields were, in part, descended from the Aldens of the Mayflower. One of them, Mary Byram married Silas Ayres. In his work, he says the following: "The ancestry of Silas Ayres too is interesting. It has been traced definetely to Englishman Thomas Eyre, abt 1550, and less certainly to William the Conquereor". I have been to the site u mentioned, but the only possible link to him is if the Lesley Theory is correct. If u are interested in my research, Please contact me at Thanks. JASON PETER HERBERT
