Willingale Family Tree

This is a one name study of the Willingale family name.

The tree contains Willingales, their spouses and descendants only, with one notable exception, the inclusion of a few additional Higgins. The Higgins family were involved, along with the Willingales, in the saving of Epping Forest, and the inclusion of a few extra Higgins allows us to show the relationship between the 4 individuals most involved in the saga; Thomas Willingale, Samuel Willingale, Alfred Willingale and William Higgins.

All places are listed with their current spelling and counties, for example, East Ham used to be in Essex but is now part of London. Therefore East Ham is listed as being in London for all entries in the family tree. We avoid using archaic places name where a more modern one is in every day usage, for example we have records listing events in Somersetshire, however in the family tree these are just listed as Somerset. However, Middlesex is still used in the place names database.
