believe that some of these people survived and formed alliances with
the Indians as time went by. Groups were found 300 years later
speaking Elizabethan English. Some Welsh speakers were also reported
in various instances. These people bore many of the same or similar
surnames as the members of the Lost Colony.

be a connection. I have a Welsh (possibly mixed with Norman) descent
pre-1170 and I personally don't have any lineage to the lost colony.
However, I recently found my only 12 for 12 Y DNA match (other than my
direct family) in Ysearch. His surname is Turner and he can trace his
paternal lineage back to a Turner in Georgia (b. abt 1789) who fought
in the War of 1812. In passing conversion, he told me he once
received an email that his Y DNA test indicated he descended from the
Roanoke/Croatan tribe. That was the only reason he had his DNA tested
in the first place. A researcher (another Turner (female)) working on
the lost colony asked him to.
I'll contact him on this. Anyway, it does lead some credence that
their were Welsh people in the lost colony.
