General Notes

  • There may be many William WIldmans in this parish that will confound researchers when trying to assign children. It may not be possible to sort them out.
  • There are two Jacob Wildmans: one is shown marrying Isabella Swainsone in 1589, the other is Jacob of Giggleswick whose wife Agnes died in 1602.
