Around 1700, three members of my Berry family (probably brothers) left either England, Scotland or Wales forever. Thomas Berry  (my eka) settled in Westmeath, Ireland and the other two, James and John migrated to America where they have numerous descendants. Family legend maintains that we came originally from Middleton in Wales, but on the basis of Y-DNA testing this seems unlikely. I am therefore looking at other places called Middleton in the UK (and there are lots, including Shropshire)! I would like to hear from anyone who has any knowledge of, or interest in Berry families in Shropshire, particularly existing families with a long history there and any Berrys who have done, or would be interested in doing a Y-DNA test. I have a webpage that provides more details :- https://sites.google.com/site/irishberrygenealogy/before-ireland
