Note on Husband: Unknown FEW

It is generally considered that the FEW family originated from Wiltshire, UK, and the father of Jeffery, Thomas, Richard and Eydith Few is likely to be the first in the family since records began. His estimated date of birth is about 1550.

Records show that the 'original' Few's all lived in a group of nearby villages, and currently the connection between William Few 1599 of Market Lavington (who was the start of the American Few ancestry) and the Few's who remained in Wiltshire, is not known. Everything points to William possibly being the son of Jeffery Few c1575, however records show him as being born in the nearby village of Market Lavington and not Bishops Canning where Jeffery was born, but he could have moved - just a few miles away. A second brother, Thomas, married 3 years after William's birth so may not be a contender, and a third brother, Richard, had children born in Bishops Canning either side of William's birth date of 1599, so his family was less likely to have moved to Market Lavington.

For the purposes of creating 'a link' until more information is available, William is shown in this tree as the son of Jeffery c1575.

More research is needed.1
