I am doing some writing on this Wilcockson family.I have a question in numerous family histories public and private William Wilcockson's wife is listed as Birdseye and others have here as Beardsley.When I think it should be Beardslie/Beardsley.These three families all came together the Harvies, Wilcockson, and the Beardsley's on the ship the "Planter" can anyone explain this or is Birdseye a variant also.
Following is from Hottens Ship List.
