WIRKSWORTH Parish Records 1600-1900
Pedigree of William TAYLOR-1
Attached is a further attempt to pull the Taylor's together. This time
it is The Pedigree of William Taylor and is based on Ince's Pedigree Page 074a.
As you will see, I have looked at the PR's and the Census records to pull this
together. Of course my assumptions may not be accurate, but it could be a
starting point for someone in the future.
I hope it is of some use on your website.
