Kirke, Coxeter and Weald Manor
Hello! my husband's 4 and 5 x great grandfathers lived in Weald Manor, Bampton during the 1700-1800's They were respectively, Robert Kirke born circa 1720 Bristol and William Fetcham Kirke born 1772. Robert's wife was Harriet Coxeter and his mother was Elizabeth Coxeter. I have yet to find any blood relationship between Elizabeth and Harriet, if indeed there was one. Elizabeth was born in Lechlade, year unknown and died circa 1778. Harriet was born circa 1735, place unknown and died circa 1785/6. If anyone has knowledge of any of the above, the information would be most gratefully received and much appreciated. Many thanks. Pam

red mail Hughes family
I am trying to find out if there is a link between the Hughes family in Bampton and that of Edward Hughes and Ann Godwin who were married in Blewbury on 3 March 1768. By 1812,one of their sons,Thomas Hughes, a blacksmith was living in Harwell, 12 of his 13 children were baptised there and he was buried in Harwell in 1844. He was born on 19 July 1787 in Blewbury, one of at least 11 children of Edward Hughes and Ann Godwin baptised there. His father was 76 when he was buried in Blewbury on 19 Nov 1826, giving year of birth C1750. It is possible he was the son of Edward Hughes and Sarah baptised in Bampton, Oxon on 20 April 1750. Can anyone confirm the link between Bampton and Blewbury Hughes families?
