Overview
Whereas information on this website is generally arranged geographically by County and then within in each County by type of source document—chancery causes, deeds, wills, etc., sometimes it is helpful to see all the GILLIAM references to particular
given name. Some names are so common, such as John or William, that nearly every county contains several John or William GILLIAMs. But on the other hand, some given names, such as Jeffry or Hinchea, are used specifically by only one line. Between these two extremes are such names as Robert or Peter that are used by a couple of lines. Sometimes listing all the references to a particular given name helps one identify specific individuals. This is what this page will attempt to do.
