Hi Celia, I wish I had a definate answer for you.I believe that the William MABLE that married, Susan is the father of my William Mable. I have been trying to make a definate connection for some time.If I remember right, Susan Clavering and William Mable's children's forenames were matched many of my William's children. As you can see from my notes below, this seems like a good possibility.
It would be great if we could find the will for the William Mable who married Susan. Let me know what you think.
