Another source that might be useful is the Bucks Record Society publications, many of which are available online:

http://www.bucksrecsoc.org.uk/publications.html

For example the Ledger Book of High Wycombe:

http://www.bucksrecsoc.org.uk/BRSpub011.html

There were people named Stevens, including one Joseph Stevens in 1664/5, though this is probably too early to be the same person. (Page 177, item 262)

This Joseph Stevens was a Quaker. Do you know if your Joseph Stevens was Quaker? This might be another line of research.

Hi Vance
I made the mistake of thinking this Joseph was mine and did do quite a bit of research into his family, but it was incorrect. The Quakers are very interesting as I do have others in my tree who are Quakers, I found that really interesting as the surname is the same as my husbands but as yet I haven't found a connection between us even though his and my family are only a bout 10 miles apart.
Really appreciate your help it has helped enormously.
