The Williams surname in the Plymouth area is found more frequently than the the national most commonly used surname in England and Wales i.e Smith. It is usually rather a nightmare sorting out the various Williams families as many Williams migrated to the Plymouth / Devonport area from Cornwall, others arrived from Wales and it was already a commonly used surname in the locality. I wish you good luck.
