all seem to be claiming the same father, or they will be if their fathers are merged.

I suspect none of them are his, and he's in the wrong family anyway, and no Bridget Young married any of them.

Who's got the big loppers today?

Bridget actually married George Wyllys-4, of Connecticut, who seems to have got pushed out of his nest and replaced by a Massachusetts immigrant called George.

take that !!!!

but -  was he English? There is a strong, adventuring sort of streak in the old Anglo/Irish Willis lot who went a'pirating with Francis Drake & Co. There were Willis cousins on both sides of the Irish Sea in the 16th cent. Don't ask me who they were though - haven't got that far yet. One of them built a fort on Tortola in the British Virgins which always makes me smile when I'm enjoying Captain Jack Sparrow and the "Pirates of the Caribbean"
The WikiTree profile has him born in England and his father also born in England.
Just full of wonder that you took the time to enter all those Willis births.
It was just a case of entering your information at familysearch.org . Their results appear at 20 per page. Then, you can copy the page and post it on a word processor. At that point, just cut and past once.

For the next 20 hits go to page 2 and follow the same procedure. It only takes a short time, about a minute or less. Did not look for more on page 3, but 40 is enough for the first go around.
