My 5th great grandfather was called Nicholas WOOD. I don't know any biographical details about him, but Nicholas has one 'claim to fame'. He was married to Elizabeth TAYLOR.
Yes, fact fans, I have Elizabeth Taylor in my family tree. No, not the actress, but someone far more precious to me. My great great great great great grandmother. I have calculated that she was born in the early 1730s (ish) and was probably married in about 1748.
Both Nicholas and Elizabeth need much more research. Where to look for such early ancestors? All their children were born in Charleton, Devon, so it's a distinct possibility that they were married there - even born there themselves. Don't you just love a challenge? *rubs hands with gleeful anticipation*
