Was Samuel Wesley really the father of William Thomas Wesley?

0 votes
Below is the WikiTree family tree for William Thomas Wesley, but I think this might be misleading or false. Samuel and Suzanne Wesley had many children, but none of them that lived were named William Thomas. This is well recorded in history. Is there a concrete researched reason as to why William Thomas Wesley would be the son of Samuel Wesley, thus a brother or at least half brother of John and Charles Wesley, founders of the Methodist church? This is very important for me to find out so I know where my roots run, either through Samuel Wesley, or another (like William Westley and Martha Westley whom I found record of on ancestry.com) Thanks - Ivan

Did you ever find any more information on this. I just started building my family tree and ran into this same situation with william thomas wesley. Any update would be appreciated!?

Doesn't look like it. Somerset birthplace is a bit fishy. I've marked it unsourced which might garner some attention.
