Tracing "ORCHARD" family in Oxfordshire.
« on: Sunday 01 June 08 21:36 BST (UK) »
I would appreciate any help in tracing the Orchard family.
My Great Grandfather was Thomas Orchard born about 1846 in Dorchester,Oxfordshire.
I think i have found a reference for his baptism dated 29.03.1846 at Dorchester.
His mother was Harriet Orchard and on the baptism ref it describes her as Harriet single woman,gypsy without fixed residence.
I have a copy of Harriet's marriage certificate in 1864 to a Gideon Davis.
Harriet's father was James Orchard,Occupation was basketmaker.
Any information would be very helpful.
Thanks

The info you have there is definitely my Great Grandfather,he eventually lived in Bourton on the Water where my grandfather and his brothers and sisters were born,and also where Thomas died in 1917.
I only have his baptism info,but don't know about his exact birth.
I would like to try and find out more info about his mother Harriet,and his Grandfather James if i can.
I know from census records that Thomas' occupation was Tinker/Brazier and journeyman.
I have the marriage certificate to his first wife Ann Turner who died at the age of 38 in 1888,but i can't find any record of his marriage to my Great Grandmother Maria Agnes Pettifer.
I guess i just want to try and find any other info about him so i can try and get more of an idea what kind of man he was.
Regards
