The first of my ancestors to come to the "New World" was Richard Lane, his wife, Alice (Carter) Lane, and their family to Providence Island in the West Indies. This was around 1635 on the ship "Expectation." From what I have been able to find on my end here, he was born in 1596. Possible father Roger Lane. Possible mother Beatrix (?). It is also a strong possibility that parents were married St Peters Church, Hereford and that Richard and his siblings were baptized there. So, I guess am looking at anything around mid-1500's to mid-1600's.
