Sadly I haven't got records of your three "Balls" in my Dengie Hundred
database but I have records of James, George, Francis, John and Samuel
Balls who were living at the same time as your Balls in the adjoining town
of Burnham and the nearby villages of St Lawrence and Woodham Walter.
I also have a John Ball at St Lawrence and several more people named Ball
who lived well outside your time frame.
Balls was a common name so they may not be relatives.
If you have any of these names in your tree let me know and I will be able
to give you the background info that puts them in my database.
There are also 20 Bells and 15 Bulls listed in the database in case you
think that the spelling of the family name may have been corrupted in the
OPC for Burnham and the Dengie Villages
