Thank you so much Margaret

Yes,it is the trees on Ancestry that are causing the confusion !!

Boaz had a brother John who married 3 times having several children by these 2 wives, his third marriage was to Jane Clack nee Jakeman(his brother's widow) in 1857 at St Michaels Oxford and after 1861 the children are all lumped together in the census' causing the confusion !

Very many thanks again

Boaz Clack married in Chesterton Jane Jakeman 2/4/1839
he a full age bachelor farmer of Aston in the Parish of Bampton
she a full age spinster daughter of a farmer, he John. they married by License witnesses Isaac Jakeman, Caroline Jakeman
Boaz and Jane baptised in Islip
John on 8/3/1845 son of Boaz and Jane he a butcher.
and baptised in Ardley
Eliza Jane 4/4/1840 he a farmer of Ardley
Boaz 29/5/1841 ditto
Louisa Sophia 1/1/1843

as you know Boaz was baptised in Bampton 13/8/1817 son of Samuel and Sophia he a tradesman

In Chesterton
25/1/1845 Boaz was buried aged 3 yrs 8 months and had been brought from Islip
24/2/1852 Boaz was buried aed 34 yrs of Chesterton.

On an Ancestry tree there are other children they being
John 1845, Elizabeth 1847 Emma 1848, Eleanor Faulkoner Clack 1850
born respectively, Islip, Weald which is in Bampton parish, Filkins, and Weald again/.
None of these children show up in these parishes.
Perhaps Jane Jakeman married again after the early death of Boaz, and the children were baptised in her next parish.

if you go to the Oxfordshire Family History Society web page, (google) you will be able to see which parishes have been transcribed, and for how far back. Also there are wills google Oxfordshire Wills... some go back ages and ages, look for your names of interest. they are there in modern language as well in the original.

Hello Margaret

I hope things have settled down since your recent problems ?

Am wondering if you can assist with another CLACK queery.

Boaz Clack born 1817 Bampton married a Jane ?
(not on Free BMD)

The first child I can find (Boaz) was baptised at Ardley in 1841,they then baptised at least one child at Islip before returning to Aston Bampton

(I have the Bampton and Aston Bampton transcriptions)

If possible I would like to know
Any marriage details
If the children survived

Thank you (in hope !!)

Hello Margaret

You were kind enough to look up some records for me re the Oxfordshire Whettons which was a tremendous help. This is just a general query - how many of the Parish Records etc. have been transcribed, is there still a long way to go? How do I find out more re my Lower Heyford ancestors, are there records available in the area that go further back or are complete? I am wondering if a visit there might be useful at some point, as it is quite a long way for me to come.

Hope you don't mind me asking

Kind regards

Thank you Margaret

William was born 1789 at Finstock (bpt Charlbury) and John born 1813 was the first child of William & Mary but the Mary buried 1815 could well be relevant


Margaret Report 27 Jun 2011 08:30

sorry I cannot find a marriage between William Hathaway or similar to a Mary
there is a baptism in Charlbury of
John Hathaway son of William and Mary of Finstock 29/8/1813

there is a burial of
Mary Hathaway aged 23 yrs wife of William of Finstock 26/11/1815

if your Hathaways came from Charlton on Otmoor there are marriages of
William Hathaway 5/2/1764 to Mary Dutton
William Hathaway 8/5/1782 to Ann Morris

regarding the Ann Morris marriage, if you think she is the mother of your William married to Mary unknown
Ann Hathaway widow buried Charlbury 9/4/1828 aged 70 yrs.
sorry not to find marriage as request.

Hope you are still around Margaret-seems a long time since you were last on !!

I am looking for a marriage-early 1800s-between a William HATHAWAY (born 1789 Charlbury) and a Mary ?

Can you help ?

Due to bereavement I shall be slow answering queries, but shall get back to them as soon as possible. Margaret.

Hi Margaret

Yes I think you did a search for Gilbert Larner, thank you- sorry I forgot!

Could you have a little look for the others please? :-)

Thank you



sailorbaz Report 20 May 2011 04:47

Sorry Margaret,
I've just realised my original post didn't have my Mum's name.
She was Florence Beatrice Brookes born 4.01.1915 in the Banbury workhouse. She died on 24.12.2010 in Chester.


sailorbaz Report 19 May 2011 13:15

Hi Margaret,
I don't know if you've seen a thread I posted some time ago
I wondered if you might have any ideas
One suggestion was if my Mum was christened, the vicar might have noted the father's name. Do you have access to Banbury baptisms - could have been C of E or Methodist.
I would be most grateful for any help.


Margaret Report 18 May 2011 16:11

I think that I have already looked for Gilbert George Larner for you in St Ebbes and could not find him, and also for Mary Ellen Larner. Perhaps you could look through my messages to you for the results. You contacted me through the email system. Kindest regards Margaret East
