Location primarily. Those Calverts were from Danby, North Yorkshire, which one Calvert researcher from England, who I was in contact with at one time, thought our Calverts were originally from Yorkshire. I don't know if that was the only basis for his conjecture that both Calvert families could be related.
If you check out an older map of England, it shows the locations from North Yorkshire and Shelton and Thornby in Nottinghamshire down the old north-south route from northern to southern England. His explanation had something to do with agriculture, mining and manufacturing mills and how people moved about in those areas seeking employment opportunities. It would be helpful to know what type of work our Calvert ancestors did. I don't have a clue.
