Thank you for your reply. I'm afraid I may not be of much help. My information comes from the Sons of the revolution records from the Reynolds fanily (maternal side of my family). The Alexander wignall mentioned was "Deputy Sheriiff, 1634". Then there is a gap until 1794. The next Wignall we have information is Charles, born in Birmingham, England 20 Feb. 1794, and died in PhiladephiaPA July 22, 1839. He married Frances Humphreys and had at least one son, James C. Wignall. So, At least there is consistency with the return to England, although I'm not sure we are still looking for the same ancestor. Do you have any early-mid 18th century information? That may help pull it together.
