If you go on Family search.org. and put in Wills and Coffinswell, you get loads of them. Zacharias |
/Zachariah, born 1714 died in November 1716, then another baby born in what is now 1717, (old calendar in operation in those days), and named Zachariah.
If you scroll down until you get an entry with a camera next to it, then you can click on that to access the bishops transcripts, and go back in time from thre. Not all on the i.g.i. I went to page 22 I think and played around from there.
alse Wills will be a girl, (Alice), father Robert.
1603, also an Ann 1613 father William.
It is best to go back from what you know on the census, rather than try and come forward, as Zachariah/s had more that one son, so you could come forward on completely the wrong line.
