A query about dates of Ralph Woods died 1753 aged 77 means he was born abt 1676

In 1690 Battle of the Boyne he would only be 14 years old  :-\

The previous link about the museum refers to 2 men named Ralph Woods. It's best to make it clear they are a father and son that you are looking for.

There seems some discrepinsis in the details found .Some say his farther is Robert Wood with no mention or link to the battle of the Boyne. The reference to Thomas (Bishop of Lichfield) are documented.and say his name is Ralph. Seem to be at a stumbling  block

Hi
Would be interesting to compare notes on this as I believe that the Ralph Wood (died 1752 / 53) is my 6 x gt grandfather
