Hello Mary Thank you for your kind offer. I wonder if you could look up any Ming family mambers in Oxon. I know there were some there. Specific names are Michael Ming, Edwin Ming, Emma Ming. They may have been in the Northmoor or Thame area. Maybe the 1851 or 1861? Thanks very much for any clues. The Ming name is not common so a name search will probably not come up with much. All the best Jane

Jane I found this family of Mings on Oxon 1871. Living at 3 Bridge St,St Thomas,Oxford Thomas Ming 61 Groom b Newbridge,Oxon Mary Ming 67 Wife b Abingdon,Berkshire Edwin Ming 36 Son Groom b Kingston,Berkshire As it is such an unusual name could this be your Edwin? Neither 1851 or 61 censuses are indexed and to search Thame,Northmoor and possibly Oxford will take some time,so if you want me to look you will have to bear with me. Regards Mary

Hi, I would love to take you up on your kind offer of a look-up on the '41 census for Oxford. I'm looking for a John Ashfield, born about 1827, so he would be about 14 years old. He was born in Nettlebed, oxon. I'm hoping he'll still be there. I know he moved to Bermondsey, London at some point, but not sure if moved with his parents as a child, or when he got married in 1856. Many thanks Paula


Mary Report 1 Oct 2004 12:48

Hi Paula 1841 Oxon census I only found one Ashfield family in Nettlebed it consisted of John Ashfield age 40 Ag Lab Hannah age 35 Emma age 15 Harriet age 12 George age 8 Anne age 4 Edmund age 1 I found a John Ashfield age 15 age 15 living in the household of Edward Sarney who is described as a Yeoman.John was born in Oxfordshire and is an Ag Lab. All of the Ashfield family are described as born in Oxfordshire. Does not really answer your query,but I am sure you will enjoy sorting it out.Good luck Mary
