Does anyone know of any links between the Oldham family and the Hillier family of Shipton Moyne, Gloucestershire in the late 1600s and 1700s (or any time after that)?

The marriages for Shipton Moyne 1589-1752 are on the family search website. There are three Hillier marriages, and one Ouldham, but no marriages between them in this time
Several Hillier baptisms, plus Ouldham ones (note old spelling) but mothers surnames aren't given of course 1589-1752

There is a private family tree on Ancestry which has Hilliers from the mid 1600's, it would be worth contacting the owner of that tree
