Beth, I don't have an answer but if you find one, I'd be very interested. It has always bothered me that I had William listed as the son of Samuel Bugg and Deborah Sherwood and his birthdate was 23 years after the birthdate for Samuel Bugg (his brother) who married Sarah Bacon.

It doesn't seem plausible, since his mother (Deborah) would have been about 43 at the time and would have died within 3 years of his birth and his father (Samuel) died within 4 years. He would have been a 4 year old orphan if Samuel and Deborah were his parents. I've seen nothing in court records appointing a guardian to look after William.
