The Caverly Surname Project
Caverly, Caverley, Cavalier, Calverley. North America: Several Caverly Genealogy researchers have discovered five major branches of Caverly family descendents. We have not been able to link these branches together with documentation. This project is to try and determine if these branches are related. 1.) New Hampshire branch - William Caverly 1648-1732, married Mary Guptil.2.) New York branch - Jean Cavalier 1644-1699, married Elinore de La Chaire.3.)

For all of those interested in searching out their Caverly/Caverley/Cavalier roots get involved. Contact the administrator, Paul Caverly, if you have questions.We have also tested my wife's mtDNA under this project to show others the process.
