Why is it that we have birthdates for Emanuel Wills, but no real effective dates for the children. The dates of FEB 21,1644/45 for Emanuel may not actually be, as Frederick Dorman in his Adventurers of Purse and Person states only that he MIGHT be that one. Emanuel had an elder brother, John, which would indicate that perhaps Emanuel's father was John Wills, brother to the Emanuel Wills, Sr.ABT 1615 LONDON,ENGLAND. I am thinking that Miles Wills and Emanuel Wills. Jr were the younger children in the family, not the eldest; and that John Wills who married Elizabeth Roberts Harwood was the eldest son, as he was involved in York County affairs by the time that any record for children of Emanuel and Elizabeth Cary Wills were given in Warwick County, VA.
Would you like to discuss more about the family?
