I too am a Radford.  Would you share your research with me as well?  I am in the US.

Hello There,

I have Radfords in amongst a maternal line of my ancestors on my father's side:
The furthest I have managed to get back to (at the moment anyway), is one of my 9x great granddad's William Radford.
He married Grace Saunder/ Saunders, at a place called Farway in Devon, on the 29th of April 1678.

I discovered a POSSIBLE lineage for the above William. But cannot be certain of it however:

This William was POSSIBLY baptised in Farway in 1666, the son of an Edward Radford.
As you may see, this would mean my William was only 12 years old at the time of marriage. But that is the only baptism I can find. There are others, but none seem to be anywhere near the area of Farway.
William's possible father, Edward Radford, married Grace Cox in Farway in 1655:

Edward was possibly baptised in 1624, in Sidbury. It is only a short distance of 4 miles from Farway, in Devon:

William's father Edward was buried in 1668 in Farway, and there is a reference here for his will:

Thank you.  :) ;)
