Richard Willets 1686 Rowley Regis Staffordshire
« on: Sunday 26 July 20 07:45 BST (UK) »
Baptism records for at least 8 children indicate his wife's name as Ann / Anne.
I am trying to locate the surname of his wife Ann / Anne.
Any information would be appreciated.

Hi garstonite,
The name Nancy was originally a form of Anne or Ann.

Will check it out.

Not sure if that date of 1686 is when you think Richard Willets was married, his date of birth or his date of death.
Have you seen there are  at least a couple of references to a Richard Willetts in Rowley Regis/Staffs on The NAtional Archives CAtalogue around the right dates, which could be him, or at least a member of his family.
