Wood 4: Wood of Copmanthorpe, Wood of Lambley, Wood of Swinsley, Wood of Till, Wood of Woodborough, Wood of York
We are cautious about approximating dates but, given that no dates were given by Foster for any of the early generations of this famiy, it seems sensible to try to identify roughly the period in which the following Ambrose probably lived. He was 9 generations before the John Wood of Copmanthorpe who was reported to have been born in 1586. It is therefore not unlikely that Ambrose was born near the beginning of the 14th century. It is noted that a number of interesting connections are shown between this and other documented families. However, some appear suspicious, not least because the generations appear be shown inconsistently here with what is known of those other families.
