Re: Bill family ,Farley hall, Staffordshire

A cousin, Peter Bill, told another cousin that an ancestor had made a family tree dating to 12th century Denmark. His sister had all of that information, and she did not reply to our letters. She has since died, the previous address we had for Peter isn't good, so we have no idea what has happened to that information or to Peter.
In Ledyard Bill's book, he notes that some information re John Bill, who married Anne Mountford, had 2nd wife, Joan, and some info about her. Also that John was born in Much Wenlock. Ledyard reports - "This and other facts were communicated by Mr. John Bill, who resides in the same town as his ancestor and namesake was born... Much Wenlock..."
Another cousin received a letter from John Charles Bill of Much Wenlock about that same time frame ( I shall find it and be more specific later) and he said his father had a Bill family tree going back to about that time - my memory may not be accurate, but I shall check out the details.
Therefore, it seems that if that tree could be located, it would piece together many of the Bill families who can now only go back to early 1700s or 1600s.
