The Williams family originate from St Anthony in Meneage,Cornwall,circa 1700's.
They move almost continually to Mawgan in Meneage then Helston, Falmouth.
Worcestershire then Brooklyn,USA.Back to England circa 1881 Colchester Essex.
When a serious earthquake hit the Wivenhoe-Colchester in 1884 the Williams family
move to Newcastle upon Tyne.England.Recent research via Ydna testing has shown
that we have Norse/Viking ancestry.
