    these are the 2 trees that you have matches to? the second one has Lucy Kean that could be Richard Keans niece? daughter of John Kean?

      Yes, that’s right.
      Sorry, I haven’t logged in for a while, PC issues!

      I have DNA matches to the descendants of Lucy Kean, Richard Kean and Patrick Butler and Jane Howard.

        I kind of think that you must be on the right track, and guess you will never prove it, as it won't be 'recorded' anywhere that he morphed into someone else.

          An astonishing number of Chelsea Pensioners changed their names for unknown reasons. It just seems to have been fairly common in Victorian times.

          No need to do anything legal, no deed polls or anything, you just started calling yourself something else...

          It makes it very tricky for descendants to unravel, but I'm sure that they thought that nobody ever would!
