I have your gr-grandfather and gr-grandmother in my files already, and I'd love to bring your line up-to-date in my records, all the way down to the present generation.

I can also give you a lot more information, both about how your line connects to Matt Quintal, and also a great deal about 4 generations of Matt Quintal's ancestry and cousins in England. He was not of Spanish descent, to my knowledge, but a good, solid Cornishman from Padstow, Cornwall. It is interesting that you mention this, though, because there are English, Portuguese, and French QUINTAL families, and who is to say how they are related. Actually, the Cornish family generally spells the name QUINTRELL, and much is also known about Matt's mother's family, the LEVERTON family.
