I'm a member of the American branch of Congreve/Congrove family. We used the Congreve surname in 18-19th centuries but now use Congrove surname. But we believe we came here some time before or about 1700. There is a Lt. Congreve that came to America in 1710 from Ireland, I am trying to prove a link to Anbrose Congreve of Mt.Congreve, Waterford Co., Ireland. I'm thinking of setting up a DNA study with attempt to link American branches and UK, Ireland and other Countries the name Congreve occurs. If you want to share information that would be wonderful.
