Thomas Wills b 1742 at Tavistock in Devon England married Ann Terdray b 1741 in Devon. They married on the 23rd June 1760 at Tavistock.
They had a son Richard Wills who was born in 1762 at Tavistock. That was the last of them as far as my researching went as they vanished off the planet. The other day I looked at an index of B.D & Ms of St.Helena Island and BINGO there they were.
It turned out they left England and moved to St.Helena Island in the South Atlantic Ocean where they settled and also where the next two of their generations were born.
Richard Wills married Jane Lloyd on the 28th July 1804 at St.Helena Island. They had a son Thomas Brown Wills who was born in 1807.
In 1809 Richard Wills married a second time. He married Charlotte Burnham.
Richard and Charlotte had two daughters.
They were Ann Caroline Wills b 21st Feb 1809 who married William Pearce in 1826.
The other daughter was Jane Catherine Wills b 23rd Sept 1812. Both of these two girls were born on St.Helena Island.
Today, some of the descendants from this family now live around Toronto and Nova Scotia in Canada and in Boston,Massachusetts U.S.A.
I would very much like to hear from anyone connected to this particular family or if anyone can add to this family line.
Ian Wills ( Melbourne - Australia )
