William Sutton alias
« on: Thursday 19 November 20 18:26 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

William married Dorothy Orum in Upavon in 1647. The baptism of his daughter Ruth in 1663 says his alias is Gyll, and the burials for him and his wife says Guill and Guyll respectively. This is the first case for me of finding an ancestor with an alias. Iíve read a little but not had much luck finding a connection to the Guyll name, nor a baptism for him at all, or for his wife Dorothy.

Iíd appreciate any help!

There's a useful document here explaining the main reasons for using an alias:

There's a baptism 9 Apr 1620 Netheravon that could be him.  Transcribed as Sullen instead of Sutton.

Father William also.

And a Mary daughter of William baptised 11 Mar 1619.  Also under Sullen.

There is also a burial at Netheravon, Wiltshire, 4 Apr 1630

The first part of the writing has been eaten away - but the rest reads

Guill alias SUTTON - was buried

Thanks for all of that! The taxation lists are certainly very interesting. Pushes a good way further back than Iíve got with parish records.
