WHITE dna 1680-1850 Aston Rowant, Chalgrove, Wheatfield, Towersey

DNA Linking dna I have my autosomal DNA on ancestry, FTDNA and Gedmatch. I have not really explored linking this to others. According to ancestry, I have DNA matches with people with common ancestors through my White line in Oxfordshire as far back as 1770s, through Eden White b1777 Sydenham (29 centimorgans), and also through his wife back to Richard Croxford, b1708 Aston Rowant (7 centimorgans). I have no idea how reliable these numbers are but the paper genealogy is good. I have also done a test with livingDNA, autosomal, Y and mtDNA, but the results are not yet downloadable. 22% of my DNA is shown as coming from the southern central region of the UK that includes Oxfordshire. I would be very interested to compare autosomal data with other people that have ancestors from the Aston Rowant area of Oxfordshire or who have White, Rixon, Filbee, Croxford, Wall, Cooper in their trees.
