They All Start Here (for now at least!)

I believe this to be the baptism record for my earliest known Savage ancestor, William, born July 19, 1704.  His is the first entry on the page. The record is a bit difficult to read (guess I will cut them some slack - the record is over 300 years old), but it looks like his father was William and his mother was Elizabeth.  I wish the ancestors had been a bit more original with first names....sadly not a "Sunshine" or "Moonbeam" amongst the lot.  I used to think that Savage was uncommon, but they seem to be all over the place!
