This is brilliant. Thank you so much.

I can even now go and visit the graves as a few years back I moved into a house just three miles from Great and Little Haseley and didn't, at that time, know my father's family came from Oxfordshire.

Again many thanks.

EDIT: I wonder if Weston was Weston Turville. Something to investigate further.

Richard Knott born unknown place married in Waddesdon 21/2/1753,..from Family Search to Martha Roberts
There is a Martha Roberts baptised 14/2/1731 in Thame this is the new style year. previously would have been 14/2/1730
Martha Knott was buried 6/11/1817 aged 86 yrs in Great Haseley.
I cannot find a burial for Richard Knott her husband in Great Hasely nor Thame.
They had baptised in Thame
Emanuel 26/5/1771
Richard 27/4/1755
Ann 1/7/1757
John 22/11/1758
William 2/8/1761
Jane 12/5/1765
Martha 13/11/1763
Mary 14/8/1768
some of these children's baptisms say their father was from Weston, from which I thought it meant South Weston, just outside of Thame, but there are no Knotts nor Notts there.

Richard Knott baptised 27/4/1755 Thame married
8/7/1777 in Thame to Mary Sheeprey born about 1742 buried 29/11/1829 in Great Hasely aged 87 yrs.
Richard baptised 27/4/1755 was buried 22/4/1838 aged 83 yrs in Great Hasely

Emanuel Knott brother of the above Richard 1755
was baptised 26/5/1771 Thame
and married 17/4/1794 in Great Haseley Mary Birdseye witness Thomas Perrman
Mary Birdseye was baptised 8/6/1772 in Great Haseley and buried 16/6/1807 in Great Haseley. no age given.
Emanuel Knott was buried in 1845 of Little Haseley between 15th June and 20th July 1845 not date of burial is given. aged 75 yrs

Emanuel Knott and Mary Birdseye had the following children baptised in Great Haseley
Thomas 16/11/1794
Richard 22/10/1797
William 5/9/1802
Jane 23/10/1803

Hope this was what you needed.


Pam Report 22 Mar 2012 21:29


Please can you see if there are any records for Emmanuel (or Immanuel) Knott born in the Thame/Great Haseley area possibly 1771. I know he married Mary Birdseye in 1794 in Great Haseley (from the Oxfordshire Marriage Transcripts). Would be interested in any children of this couple that you may be able to find.

Thank you.

Thank you again Margaret !


Margaret Report 9 Mar 2012 08:26

The latest Elizabeth Bland is married in Hanborough in 1792 too early for Elizabeth, taking the computer and records with me, so will still be available for lookups but might be a bit slow replying.

Hi Margaret,

Thanks once again for all your help now I have to find the birth of Aubrey son of Henry and Elizabeth, as this one was born 1881, I beleive he was Aubrey Henry Porter as he changed from Henry on his first marriage to Aubrey Henry after it says he was born Soho London there is a record but this says female I got in touch with the church but never got a reply.I will keep looking for that.

Thank you so much again for all your help it is much appreciated.
Kindest regards Costa


Margaret Report 7 Mar 2012 15:16

Sorry No Matthew Bland entries, but more of different christian names if you want them.


ElizabethK Report 7 Mar 2012 09:11

Hello Margaret

Does the Marriage Index have any Matthew BLANDs marrying between about 1820 and 1839 ?

They were travellers so could be anywhere
I do realize they may not have married but give Oxfordshire as their birth place so worth a try :-)

Henry Porter son of Richard and Mary Porter baptised Chipping Norton 12/1/1845 Richard Porter a Publican.

You will find a tree on Ancestry with the above people on it, where Mary wife of Richard Porter married in 1842 Cheltenham she was Mary Ann Hillman.

Mary Ann Porter was buried 18/3/1878 aged 55 yrs in Chipping Norton.

There is a Memorial Inscription which reads

Sacred to the memory of Mary Ann, wife of Richard Porter junior, who died 14/3/1878 aged 53 yrs
Also of Ann wife of Richard Porter who died 9/3/1839 aged 44 yrs

I think this gives you.
Richard Porter and wife Mary Ann Hillman married 1842 Cheltenham

and Richard Porter senior married to an Ann died 9/3/1839 aged 44 yrs the mother of the above Richard Porter junior...

Please write this out, and it will make more sense, I cannot find the marriage in Cheltenham for Richard Porter and Mary Ann Hillman on Latter Day Saints, perhaps you will have more. Luck..... Margaret
