William Willis – View media – Ancestry history of the Willis Family

By following the link given above I have traced ancestors back to the time of the War of the Roses instigated by the Earls of Warwick and Salisbury.  The era of Henry Vi.  Henry VI was born in 1421 and he died in 1471.  My ancestor Thomas Wyllys lived during this time.  Thomas was born in 1457 and died in 1482.  Thomas Wyllys was my 12X Great Grandfather.  How cool is that!
