Hi Jay,

These Percy's are known as the Kildale Percys, and I can find no further
information them.

While it does not seem to fit in with your Percy information, I wonder if
and how they might be related to your Isabel de Percy d. 1368 (d/o
Henry de Percy K.G., 2nd Lord Percy of Alnwick b. 1299 nd d. 1352) who
married William de Aton? Both Percy families seem to have been in
Yorkshire at around the same time. I am posting this to the Gen-Medieval
list, in hopes that someone can help with corrections.

This information also came from an article in "The Colonial Genealogist",
by Robert Joseph Cuffman, MA, FAS/he, FSO, Associate Editor, entitled "The
Yorkshire Background of the Boyntons of Rowley".
