Oxfordshire / Re: John TAYLOR's marriage to Hannah possibly FRY before 1717

Very many thanks, I now have all the pieces of my jigsaw. 

Oxfordshire / John TAYLOR's marriage to Hannah possibly FRY before 1717
« on: Saturday 18 November 17 18:40 GMT (UK)  »
Can someone please help? I need the marriage of John Taylor who I believe married Hannah Fry in either Berkshire or Oxfordshire.

John Taylor of Longworth victualler is mentioned in a will of Hannah's step father.[Will 14th December 1717] "I give and bequeath to my Daughter in law Hannah Taylor the wife of John Taylor of Longworth"

John Hinton's wife Anne had a daughter Hannah by her earlier marriage to Richard Fry, so his daughter-in-law. John Hinton was landlord of the Hinds Head inn in Kingston Bagpuize so highly likely that Hannah would marry a victualler.

I cannot prove this relationship until I find their marriage so help would be gratefully appreciated as need to complete a story of this inn.

Hi Grandarog.
After your reply, I have joined the Kent History Forum,which I have found very interesting!
However,still no joy with finding pilots name. Would I be able to contact Neil Barker, if so how?
Many thanks.
Hi Carol, How did you manage to join please?  I tried a couple of times and couldn't answer the question 'what is the admins name'.  No idea came to mind, but could you possibly let me know please?  Thanks,

Emeltom, Thank you for being picky.

When I read what I had written, I realised that somewhere I had made an error. I should have typed in Child born in May 1889. He is now not the baby but his twin sisters were.  I now have him aged 11 in the workhouse in Cowley, Oxford.

Many thanks,

I am researching a family of eight children, youngest born May 1899 his mother dying in April 1899. Their father had died in 1894. I do not know who the father of this child was.

I have discovered what happened to the other children but cannot find a baby in the workhouse in Cowley.  Two of his sisters are there and I can only think that the baby is there. What age did workhouses take orphaned children?  I know that generally they took in foundlings etc. but were they not named on the census?

Hi there Phil,
Good point re register age. Will mention this. Thanks for the Burial Index search, grateful.

Pretty odd isn't it this seemingly lack of burial entry, and although it is not essential it has bugged me, so I *must* find out.

Nice to be in contact Phil, hope all is well with you.


BTW we do have a war grave memorial [ newish ] here Phil.

Many thanks Alan and Carol,
>Are you saying that although she died in Oxfordshire - she was buried in Berkshire?

Yes that's correct. She had moved from her home in Kingston Bagpuize, [then in Berkshire] to live in Standlake [Oxfordshire] ca 1920 where a daughter was living close by. Her body was buried in Kingston to lie next to her grandson who had been killed in WW1 and when her son and daughter in law died [parents of the boy who died in War] they were buried next to her.  Not too sure why her husband Walter was buried in Longworth, but he was probably living in that area of Southmoor where it seemed customary to be buried there.
Thanks for the help, everyone.
