The Descendants of Edward Woodyatt and Mary Hemings

The ancestry of this Edward Woodyatt may possibly be carried back at least 5 more generations to Roger Woodyatt of Avenbury. The major stumbling block to proof is confusion between Edward Woodyatt and Mary Hemings who married 1 Nov 1764 at Avenbury and another Edward Woodyatt and Mary Wood who were married 30 Aug 1760 at Ashperton. These two Edwards are very difficult to tell apart and so until further proof is obtained this line stops here. It is, however, quite distinct and apart from the Richard and Anne Woodyatt of Cradley which goes back to at least 1500 and as yet there is no proven Woodyatt relationship between the two families.
