red mail Hawkins family. Cropredy Oxfordshire
I am looking for a Martha Hawkins, born abt. 1666 in Oxfordshire. She married a John Hawkins and they produced 12 children in Cropredy Oxfordshire. one of them was Henry, my 5x great grandad born 1705 in Cropredy. I need to know Martha's maiden name and whether her husband was related in any way to The Hawkins family at Great Milton Oxfordshire, in particular to Sir John Hawkins, born 1643, son of John Sidney Hawkins, born1605. I would dearly love to know Martha's maiden name as I am totally stuck without it and also anything about John, Martha's husbands, father and where he lived or was born which would be a great help to me. If anyone can help I would be most grateful many thanks Carol

red mail Checkley/Elkington - Cropredy
John Checkley married Elizabeth Elkington in 1731 (at Banbury St Mary). John Jr was from Wardington (son of John + Dorothy Checkley, born 1707) and Elizabeth from Cropredy (daughter of Thomas + Elizabeth Elkington, born 1705), family start in Wardington with three children Elizabeth, John and Sarah, then apparently disappear, seems odd as they both part of major families in the area. Interested in confirming later lives and death dates. A Thomas Checkley married an Elizabeth Elkington (daughter of Edward + Ann Elkington, niece of the above mentioned Thomas + Elizabeth Checkley) on Sep 3rd 1766 in Cropredy. A very clear family is thereafter traceable in parish + census records. Assuming correct data there is a Monumental Inscription for Thomas dying Age 72 in 1808 and his wife in 1812 in Cropredy. Mystery is if this Age is correct then he would be born 1736, no logical christening found and given the Checkley family was large in the Mollington/Cropredy/Wardington/Great Bourton area would like to locate this (and his parents!)

red mail CROPREDY
Seeking information about James BERRY (b1818), parents from Appletree, a basket maker, who subsequently moved to Coventry, before returning again to Cropredy (d1856).
red mail SUMNER
I am searching for information on John and Mary (Turner) Sumner. They were married in Cropredy and had their children christened in Cropredy, but they were not born there and I have no clue as to where they were born and resided prior to coming to Cropredy. John & Mary's single daughter Ann is my husband's direct line, his GGG Grandmother along with son George, whose father is said to be GeorgeTims/Turner. I am also looking for any information on David & Thirza (Trafford)Sumner and son George E., born May 4, 1878. George E. came to the US at about the age of 8, presumably with his parents considering his tender age. I have been unable to find anything on their departure from the UK or their arrival in the US. George and his wife Maud are listed in Michigan's 1910 census, along with their children, nothing prior to 1910. George E. is my late husband's grandfather. My husband died this past 12/26/03 and I have decided to continue my research for the Sumner side of the family. Many Thanks, Betty
