About John Wood

The date of birth of John Wood, 1512 to 1562, is based on the date of baptism of his daughter, Elizabeth Wood, baptized: 21 Sept 1577; it was common practice at that time and place to baptize infants.

John Wood is not believed a son of Nicholas Atwood of Sanderstead, Surrey, England. However, he could have been a descendant of an earlier branch of the Wood/Atwood family. More research is needed.

William Mullins probably married firstly Elizabeth Wood, in Stoke, near Guildford, co. Surrey, England sometime prior to December 1598 – possibly in the early 1590s. Elizabeth, daughter of John and Joan (Taylor) Wood, died sometime prior to 1604.[16]

It is believed that William Mullins married 1st Elizabeth Wood, daughter of John Wood and Joan Wood (Taylor). Elizabeth died prior to 1604. William's son William Jr., and daughter Priscilla were children of William Sr's first marriage.
