There is not a baptism nor a marriage for Thomas Young in Swalcliffe, which is where people were baptised etc before Sibford was available.
Nor is there a marriage on the marriage disc for Thomas Young to a Sarah up to 1837,the previous one is in the early 1800's Sorry.

Hello Margaret.
Thank you very much for the information.
Did you miss the bap for John Lewendon bc 1816 Whitchurch, you kindly send me a Lewendon marriage that are most likely the parents.
Kind regards Alan.


Margaret Report 14 Dec 2008 19:06

ALAN sorry I do not have Whitchurch, and I can find no record of a parish called Play Hatch
The IGI gives a marriage for John Lewendon 9/1/1836 to Helena Hopkins at St Thomas A Becket Goring, and he is buried 30/6/1850 at St Marys Whitchurch but the IGI gives no place of birth.


Alan Report 16 Dec 2008 17:20

Hello Margaret.
Thank you for your time and help it was much appreciated.
I think anyone born Play Hatch might be recorded at Sonning
Regards Alan.

Hi margaret
Could you please take a look to see if there is a baptism of a JOHN HALL in coombe oxon.
He was born c1791.

Thank you richard.


Margaret Report 29 Dec 2008 12:19

there is a baptism for
John Hall 10/10/1784 Long Coombe son of John and Elizabeth, but the Bishops Transcripts are missing for the years 1793 to 1799 so I cannot look for one in that period.Sorry


Artbeat Report 29 Dec 2008 13:07

Hi margaret
Thank you for checking on JOHN HALL, Unfortunately i don,t think the one you found in 1784 is the john i was looking for.

Thank you Richard.

Nudge in desperation

Hi Margaret Rose

Thanks for your kind offer...

You may not be able to assist here, because I do not know which parish in Oxford this person came from, but he was born c1920. Are there many parishes in Oxford?

His name was Frank Evans and his father's name was also Frank Evans.

If it is not too much of a tall order, I would be pleased to hear from you.

Kindest regards and a very Happy New Year to you.



Margaret Report 30 Dec 2008 14:11

There are far too many parishes in Oxfordshire to search for an individual one in 1920, sorry


Dee Report 30 Dec 2008 14:29

Hi Margaret Rose

Thanks anyway, I understand...

Are there many parishes in the town of Oxford itself, rather than the whole of Oxfordshire?

Kind regards

Margaret Report 30 Dec 2008 17:14

there is a Frank Evans baptised 25/8/1891 Saints Mary and John in Cowley Oxon, son of Francis Elijah and Harriet born 7/8/1891
If you think this is the father of your elusive Frank Evans c 1920 let me know.


Dee Report 31 Dec 2008 17:38

Hi Margaret Rose

Thank you for looking Frank Evans up; unsure if this is the same Frank although obviously possible. As I am starting from Frank Evans c1920, I have nothing else to check with, and this is skipping a generation. I will look up on the Census and see if I can find a match.

Many thanks for your kindness.

Kind regards

Hi Margaret

Just re-reading notes, and Frank Evans jnr was living at 25 Caroline Street, St Clements, Oxford in 1942. Is this any help?

Kindest regards



Beejay Report 1 Jan 2009 12:09

Hi Margaret

This isn't a request for a look up, just one big enormous THANK YOU. You did a successful look up for me last summer which spurred me into investing in my own cd's. I've now found loads more of my family which will probably keep me very busy this year.

Once again thank you and may 2009 bring you all you wish for



Keith Report 2 Jan 2009 13:13

Hi Margaret,Try to trace any information about Hannah Bullock born 1869 in Peppard Oxen,prior to her marrage to Frederick Charles Grover in 1894 in Reading. Any information regarding her parents would very useful. Regards Keith.
