hello Len
You should contact the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies
http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/bcc/archives/centre_for_buckinghamshire_studies.page
which is the archive and family history centre at Aylesbury Museum.
I agree with GCB - I think the Little Marlow family are at least fourth cousins, as they originally
came from Princes Risborough rather than Stokenchurch.
It doesn't help that Rogers was a common name in South Bucks
in the 19th century - the commonest in some parishes. The case of the Little Marlow family
in WW1 is particularly sad - they lost four sons in four different battles. It is difficult for us now to
imagine what it must have been like.
I haven' t been to the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies myself, but I've heard that they have a lot of
interesting stuff. I would like to see the school and chapel records for Stokenchurch to spot any ancestors'
activities.
One thing you should check - until 1896, Stokenchurch was officially in Oxfordshire - so make sure that
the records you want to examine really are in Aylesbury rather than Oxford.
Good luck!
Beth

I have just found some hand written papers showing George Biggs of Strokenchurch, Bucks, England was a cousin to Edwin William Cripps.  George was a poet, partly to fill in time as a POW during World War I.  He had a small volume published.  He was a proprietor of a chair making establishment at High Wycombe, the area Windsor and other famed furniture was made.  During WW II the government took it over, and among other things manufactured ski's for the Russians.  George had no sons to carry on the business.
George Biggs was a cousin to my husband's great grandfather Edwin William Cripps who was born April 3, 1867 at Harefield, Middlesex, England.
Any information on how George Biggs and Edwin William Cripps are related would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi
My Great Grandfather was Frederick William Bird HUNT, he was born in Stokenchurch in 1885. I think his mother was called Fanny and it is possible her maiden name was BIRD...

In 1911 he had moved to High Wycombe, and his trade was a Bandswayer.

I believe he had a few siblings and came from a farming family. I wonder if he is related to the Hunt farm in Stonor for instance?
I would love to find any more information on HUNT/BIRD families in Stokenchurch etc and see if I can piece together some more family history.
Many thanks in advance for any help!
