The name will be Winingham or Willingham or a variant.
Like Winingame ; Wingame, Wininham; willieham; Winenham.
Even Whittingham.
First name john, edward, Thomas; William; or Elizabeth, and Amey.

Some of those old records are in secretary alphabet. And those old W's may be transcribed as D's; so would you ck for Dillingham.
Since the county clerk back then may have been a german, you might ck for a Viningham Villingham, or Vittingham.

appreciate it and I have some genealogy reference books in my machine and would be glad to ck for something for you.

Phillip Barr
New Mexico
