I found this message - don't know from where, but it appears relevant to your research and covers sources I have come across with Rev. Flythe. "To Nat Felts 2-10-11 'I saw a copy of The Felts Family in England by Col. Charles Edwards, Jan., 1928. It's on Heritage Quest (Film G5844). I only found 3 pages and could only print the title page and page 1. The title page included the Arms and Crest. The first page started in 1530 in Bedfordshire, England. Felshe, Felase, Felts, Fylls,Feltes, Felas, Felce and Phelps.
Thomas Felce (1513)
William lived in Reach. Children baptized:
Humphrey 24 Feb 1604/5
Thomas 25 June 1607
George 28 Feb 1609
Elizabeth 25 Oct 1612
Mary 19 Feb 1614

Certificate of Land issued to D.A Phelps (Felps) for transporting himself twice and bringing Thos. Humphreys, Eliz Colonies, Tho. Smith, Sen. John Cox, and John Sharp. From Lancaster county Records. Deed Book I, page 139. History of Old Rappahannock County, Virginia. gave me the folling:
George Felt immigrated from Manor of Leighton, Bedfordshire, England.
Since there are no more pages, I have not connected George Felt (1609) with Humphrey Felts (c 1660 - bf20 July 1715). Humphrey's will dated 19 Sept 1713 and proved 20 Jul 1715.
Cavaliers and Pioneers, V.2 1666, Nell Marion Nugent, VA State Library, Richmond, 1977:345-346.
A Thomas Felps arrived in 1690 in Lancaster. He was imported by Christopher Wormly, Esq. Robert Felps was imported 1688 by Mr. William Edwards (page 322).

So, Anita, I wish you had had this before your trip to SLC. I realize it is confusing with these names repeated so often, I take solace that the continued use of these given names confirm that these are my family. All the best, Nat
