Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential.
Based on your contributions I suggest US Southern Colonies Project which includes All Southern colonies. The leader is Paula J; or England Project leader Susie MacLeod, Gillian Thomas for your Leggotts.
Or use the Pre-1700 Projects list to review other possibilities.

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.
Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.
