There are a few trees with same info but they possibly all copied from each other.

Something else for you to check out.

brother John's christening same date.

and mother's named as Elizabeth Haskins.

Name: John Hoult
Birth: 14 Feb 1741 - Cheshire, England
Death: 28 May 1826 - Virginia, USA
Marriage: 1770 - Virginia, USA
Parents: John Hoult, Elizabeth Haskins
Spouse: Elizabeth Shircliffe

Of course it is possible that the first William died [ John's twin ??] and then they named the next child William also

Please check all info from someone else's tree, it's not official
