In late 2005 and early 2006 several people contacted me and all had an ancestor born in Alderney in the Channel Islands whose descendants were at one time living in Roath, Glamorganshire.  It seems too much of a coincidence that they are not related.

Using the web sites FreeBMD and Ancestry.com together with suggestions from those descended from these particular WHEATONs a provisional family tree was compiled.  And then a very kind researcher visited the Devon Record Office and extracted details from some Devon Parish Registers which linked the CHANNEL ISLAND WHEATONS back to the Thomas WHEATON and Jane HAMMETT.  More recently the line has been extended back to about 1572 and details are in the report for Paul WHEATON and Joanne SLEE..  The above link will take you to this family.
