Ancestry.com shows that William Tunstall was born in Halifax. He married Sally Britton born in 1766 in Chesterfield. His death was 1835 (in TN). I estimate his birth date was about 1775.

I'm looking for his father Robert Tunstill who came from England and fought in the French and Indian War. Robert's three sons were William, Robert and John Stokes. Most of the Tunstills ended up in Amelia and Lunenburg County.

Does anyone have any evidence for William Tunstall being born in Halifax and more importantly any information about his father Robert who may have married a Stokes perhaps in the 1770's.
