Post subject:  WILLIS surname

Looking to make contact with anyone with the surname WILLIS or related to anyone with that name.

The line I am searching originally came to Fogo from Dorset, England but spread out to various parts of Newfoundland and beyond.

Even if you have not traced your heritage back to Fogo, I might be able to help you there.

Anyone with knowledge of or related to the surname WILLIS id welcome to comment :D

i have Elizabeth Ann Willis 1807-1870 married to John Hopkins, she is my wife's ggggrandmother. We know nothing about her ancestors but some info on her and John's family. They had at least 11 children.
Would love to make contact re Willis family.

Hi there!

I don't have an Elizabeth Ann Willis born even close to 1807. Do you know where she lived? Willis was common to the Fogo area and later is found in Bonavista communities, Humber Region, Exploits area, just to name a few.

I do know there was a British Officer named Willis in the St. John's area way, way back but do not believe he was connected with my family.
