Over all my years of researching the name of JAMES FENTON WILLS has cropped up a few times and because he was from London I payed little attention regards his connections as mine are mostly in Devon.
JAMES FENTON WILLS was one of 8 children to George Wills and his wife Catherine Stone.
A case of double bigamy made news headlines in both England and Australia in 1857. James Fenton Wills had a brother named John Blair Wills who had not long been married when he ( James Fenton Wills ) married her also.
The article can be read on the following webpage.
I hope that I haven't ruffled too many feathers of anyone that descends down from him but at the same time there may be several people unaware of what took place.
I am just doing my job as a researcher.
Regards from Ian Wills - Melbourne.
