I am researching my family tree surname WILLIAMS in Oddington. I have traced it back to a wedding between JAMES WILLIAMS and MARY FFREMAN in 1689. There were Williams in the village in 1626, but I cannot link these, can anyone help? Surnames of lady's marrying into the Williams family are:-FFREMAN,SCROGGE,GREEN,WALKER,HUCKIN,ROBERTS,FORSYTH-BROWN. My side of the family moved away to South London during the 1870's. The Williams family trade was that of Carpenters and Timber Merchants.

red mail Davis, Aston
Searching for my father's family. My father, George Henry Davis was born in Surrey 15/11/1889 the son of William Henry Davis and Charlotte Maria Davis (Monger). William Henry's father was believed to be Charles Thomas Davis and his mother (or perhaps, Grandmother) was Hannah Aston. Is anyone researching Davis or Aston families in Lower Oddington or anywhere else in Gloucestershire?
red mail EMES family in Oddington
I'm looking for the family of ELIZA EMES, according to the census records she was b abt 1849 in ODDINGTON Gloucestershire. I would like to know the names of her parents & if she had any siblings. In 1861 I'm pretty sure I found her 'in service' (age 12)with the family of the Stoker & Gatekeeper at the District Warwick Lunatic Asylum. In 1871 census she was in service with the family of a Tea Merchant (name of FERRIER)in St John's district of Croydon. Eliza met & married Henry HEAP in Croydon 1871. Henry was born in Burnley Lancashire & after their first son, William, was born, they moved to Over Darwen, Lancashire, where they remained. Henry was a General Labourer in 1871 & 1881, later became a Postman. They went on to have at least 6 sons. The youngest son, Henry (Harry)Heap married my grandmother's niece, Margaret Haworth in Lancashire in the early 1900s. I wonder if anyone who has access to the 1851 census in the Oddington area, could possibly look for the EMES family OR does anyone know if the Parish records have been made available online ? Thanks Anne
