Thank you :)

That's a lot to digest.

Not sure about John Waddell and William Waddell being brothers - on John's marriage certificate his father is recorded as a weaver, and on William's his father is a farmer. No reason, of course, why it couldn't be the same person but it's not an assumption I would make.

I am interested in all Waddell descendants, if you would be willing to share?

Thanks, Jon_ni, that's great.

Now all I need to do is figure out who all these older William Waddells were ....
