You say that this is not the John who married E Wood. Where does this claim come from? Is that John on Wikitree?

I will add a source that contradicts this, though it is not necessarily reliable. This source is a DNA match to me up to John (1607). It doesn't require that my John be the son of William, but that is one possibility.
