Research by the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) at Jamestown in Virginia, USA, has identified an inhumation burial which has the potential to be that of Bartholomew Gosnold one of the leaders of the earliest permanent English settlement in the USA. A separate historical study defines the background and identifies the academic and educational benefits of confirming the identity of the burial. An investigation of the likely burial sites of two of Gosnold's female relatives in Shelley and Stowmarket churches has been proposed in order to provide suitable mt DNA links to achieve this objective. This work would be carried out in conjunction with the National Geographic Society (NGS) who intend to film the project.
At Shelly DNA samples were taken from the remains of Elizabeth Tilney nee Gosnold, Bartholomews sister buried in 1646 (S1).
