Researching the Bayley Bayly Baily Bailey Family Line (Northeastern Bailey's).

Currently we are twelve (seventh to twelth) cousins participating in the FTDNA Bailey Men's yDNA Project. Haplogroup R1b (R1b1b2a1a1, R1b1b2g1, R1b1c9a (23&me), R1b-U198/S29, R-U198, S29, U198) with SNP U198+, a small subset of the Frisian Haplogroup R-U106. Frisia was Normandy during the medieval times, around the northwest corner of Europe, just south of Denmark, west of Lithuania, north of Spain which included many Celtic Tribes, some of whom were never conquered by the Romans. Today, there is yet a department of Netherlands named Friesland.

Our earliest ancestor is Wm Bayly b. abt 1535, a broadloom weaver; lived in Chittoe, Bishop's Cannings Parish (now Bromham Parish), Wiltshire, England. It is interesting that the broadloom had been invented in Flanders during the late 15th century, and a broadloom weaver had to have been educated in the use and care of the broadloom at the weaver's guilds in Flanders, probably Bruges. Two big men were required to operate the horizontal broadloom, with a number of assistants.

Interesting insight is the match between wool (sheep from Western England) & weaving (skills from Flanders)at this period of history, plus the Reformation beginning in Friesland (Netherlands) with the printing of the Gutenburg Bible in 1455, and the The Hundred Years’ War, which was a series of short conflicts between France and England during the years from 1337 to 1453. It resulted from disputes between the ruling families of the two countries over territories in France and the succession to the French throne. The English repeatedly invaded France and established English rule over various regions. The French eventually expelled the English from nearly all of France, inspired at one point by Joan of Arc, who was executed by the English in 1431.

In the Family Genealogy by Francis Bayley in 1881, The Bailleuls of Flanders and the Bayley's of Willow Hall (Staffordshire), Francis explains how a wealthy sheep owner might transfer his wealth from Flanders to England under the guise of purchasing and/or selling sheep.
