{4} Woodland Lineage


The Woodland lineage traces back from America into the county of Somerset, England. Tracing the Woodland ancestry is enabled by the lawful recording of vital events by the clerks of the Church of England, begun in the time of Henry VIII (1538) by the state. Lack of many details and the movement of people, has meant that the research is slow. The researcher makes certain assumptions to make the research process most efficient. Sometimes the researcher must estimate birth years by the customary and expected demographics of that time and place. One must keep in mind the normal movements of the agricultural working class usually within about a five-mile radius of the nearest market town. The fact that the place of marriage was usually the parish of the bride is also helpful to keep in mind. Naming patterns can also be useful.
