There are three Ellis progenitures on Prince Edward Island that I can find: My ancestor, Robert, who married Hannah Darby, William Ellis, shipbuilder who married Hannah Tawton, and Robert Ellis who married Ann Yeo Ellis. They are all related. Descendants of two of them (my Robert and William) have already been DNA tested and they match, indicating that they share a common male ancestor. See J2 Group 1 at the Ellis Surname DNA Project (last button at right). Though I have not proven it, I suspect that Robert Ellis (who married Ann Yeo Ellis) is the grandson of William Ellis, the shipbuilder through his son Robert and Elizabeth Brooks.
