I'm interested in the history of your Bill family back to 1660. Our oral history states that someone in the family had documented the family back to the 12th century, coming from Denmark. A John Bill of Much Wenlock, Shropshire, said that was the ancestral home of the Bill family. Ours were in WAR, but we've been trying to make a connection to those in neighboring counties. We trace back to mid 1700s for sure, some possibilities prior to that.
