Sarah Keen (bapt 1808) Faringdon (d/o Wm. & Ann) marries James Pusey (wid) 1832 Shipton-u-Wychwood who I think is buried 1855 In Thame. She then married John Belcher in 1857 Longcot.
This then gives a clue as to where Richard pusey came from.


Sarah Puzey says shes a widow in 1851, so James Puzey must have died before then. Can't see him in 1841 and she is workhouse with children. The two oldest Phyllis and Philip have James as father   on the baptisms, Richard has no father recorded, can't find Albert's baptism. But as no mmn is on Richard's and Albert's birth reg, I wonder if James died  in mid 1830's and the younger two were fathered by someone else.
