Hello Margaret,

If your offer is still open would it be possible for you to look up
a birth for me.

Charles Fellows born Henley On Thames 1780.
St. Marys Parish.

Many thanks.



Margaret Report 8 Feb 2009 17:38


Charles Fellows baptised 16/6/1790 son of Charles and Sarah nee Parnel he was born 18/5/1790 St Mary Henley

Charles Fellows married in Henley Eleanor Buckney 23/7/1816

There is no marriage for Charles's parents on the Oxfordshire marriage disc, and no Parnels marrying at that period.

Hope this was of interest

Is your Caroline c 1815

Sorry no to have better news.


Julia Report 13 Feb 2009 20:10

Hi Margaret
Thanks for trying!!
Yes my Caroline was c1815 the other children were sarah, Matilda William and George 1820
it is from Georeges Marriage cert that I got Williams name.
its strange you cant find them, you have looked previously for George 1820 with no luck either!! in the 1851 census George is a farmer of 500acres, in Kirtlington so they were a fairly prominent family in the area I would have thought??
Oh well, the search continues
Thank you again for looking for me


Chris Report 16 Feb 2009 10:26

Hi Margaret
I wonder if you would be kind enough to look for members of the Griffith and Garrard family for me?
Ellen Alice Griffith born 1877 and her sister Elizabeth Kate Griffith born 1881 (parents were Edward and Emma Eliza Griffith) Elizabeth then married Charles Frederick Garrard in about 1907 they had three children that I know of Ronald Charles 1908, Frederick 1912 and Gerald 1916. Ellen Alice married either Thomas Coombs or John Brown in 1905. All are registered in Headington, Oxford any additional info you could find would be great
Thanks Chris
