Can anyone help me to the parents of Jephthah Willy, married in 1783 at Kingsbury Episcopi ? All other avenues have been scoured, to no avail !

No there are plenty of willy and variants in somerset - Kingsbury Epsicopi is in SE somerset and Bristol NW somerset - some distance in those days on foot or horse back - although not impossible most unlikely

To: ciderdrinker - have you, or does anyone else, have access to the parish register image showing the baptism of Jepthah Charles Willis at Bristol St. Michael? Is it possible to obtain a copy? Kamante
