I noticed your post about all teh papers you have and about the will countersigned by Thomas son of JohnRaley and wonder if your papers can help me.
I am descended from Thomas and Elizabeth Raley.
These pair were Americans who moved to London in England shortly before 1806. They later settled in Hammersmith then in rural Middlesex a few miles west of London. The family have lived in England then on.
Their (apparently) eldest son, Samuel, was born in hospital in November 1806. At that time they were fresh from America (they did not yet have settlement rights in Britain), Elizabeth was aged 22 and Thomas was a carpenter.
I assume they came from the southern area of the USA because they were baptists - an uncommon denomination here in Britain.
It would be good to find a lead in America to these two.
I assume that this Thomas must be the next generation to the Thomas you quote
