Although this is tedious work, the oldest records are available for obtaining copies. To refine your search, the categories are to the left of the screen. Do not forget to search through the Chancery Records because that is similar to US civil courts, and you will see all sorts of disputes in there. Don't be cheap when ordering all of the records (copies are inexpensive) which you think might be your people because, in the final analysis, this is going to be the only way to sort things out. It does come together after you become familiar with the people. You can even get copies of the old wills, and I strongly advise you to do so. I acquire those wills with the same surname surround certain dates. This helps to understand who is who and to eliminate certain families. Good hunting!
