William Briggs, Sr
Birth: Apr. 2, 1645
Thornbury
South Gloucestershire Unitary Authority
Gloucestershire, England
Death: Jan. 3, 1728
Taunton
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA

I'm being picky but William's birth took place when Taunton was part of Plymouth Colony, not Massachusetts. And, there were no counties until 1685.

PLACE: 1685 - Plymouth Colony created its first counties in 1685, and remained an independent Colony until 1692, when it was disbanded. It's territory then became part of Massachusetts Colony.
