What sources exist for William Reynolds (m Esther Ruth/Roth) and his parents and children

What records exist to connect William to his parents as well as his marriage and many children?  Most of the children's profiles are unsourced.  William's profile is as well.  I added a link to his profile at FamilySearch along with data on legal records from the FS site, but the records date to 1646 and his profile has him dying in 1625.

He has a dozen children attached to him that all need reviewing.

This site appears to be where the legal records mentioned on FS originated.  It provides no sources for his parents or marriage and only lists seven children.

Thanks for looking, Marion.  Certainly no way to know if either correlates to this William.  Unless someone comes up with something definitive, I propose that we detach him from his current parents with a note in the biography

I found a few other men with the same name born the same year on findmypast. None of them had a father named Christopher.

There were two on Ancestry that said they came from parish records but had no image. They also had no date or location other than England. One had the father spelled Christopher the other Christofer, so they probably did come from a parish record with the spelling Christofer. There is not enough information given though and I could not locate the original registry.

Other than that I found what Marion found.

Thanks, Laura.  I've been looking as well and getting nowhere.  That's why I posted, hoping someone else might already have something in a private file or locate something.  Your efforts are appreciated.
