Dear John

I have been reading the correspondence on Rootschat regarding the Fortescue family of Berkshire and that of Baulking in particular with interest. I am at the moment helping a friend with her Fortescue family history which may have links with your family.

The Fortescue family I am researching has been traced to Jane Fortescue who was baptised in Wantage on the 2nd February 1787. Her parents were John Fortescue (bapt 14/1/1758 in Faringdon (although from Little Coxwell)) and Sarah Giles (from Letcombe Regis) who married in Wantage on the 3rd July 1780. Jane's grandparents were James Fortescue and Elizabeth Hazel who married (by licence) on 20th  September 1751 in Uffington. James (according to the Licence Bond) was from Great Coxwell  and his wife was from Fernham. Looking at the Great Coxwell  Parish Register there is a James Fortescue baptised on 15th Agust 1736 which maybe this James. His parents are given as another James and Mary.

Any connections with your reseach.? Buckland, Faringdon, the Coxwells and Uffington are all in (a geographical) line to Wantage so there is most probably a link somewhere.

Kind regards

Trevor
