Willis of Shalford
« on: Thursday 17 May 18 18:33 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I've hit a brick wall with the following:

Henry and Elizabeth Willis, parents of George Willis, born 1748, Shalford
James Willis and Jane Belcher, parents of John Willis, born 1772, Shalford (married 1770, Shalford)

I'd appreciate any help!

Adam

Ideally, prospective baptisms for the aforementioned people. And one marriage for Henry and Elizabeth Willis.
