Denchfield family of North Marston Bucks.
Got most of what I want about them, but it's always nice to meet new members.

Hi,

I'm researching the North Marston Denchfields as well and was thrilled the other day to discover many of them wrote wills which are now available online from the Bucks County Council. I've ordered a few, waiting as patiently   :-\ as I can - takes a while over here in USA.  Have you seen them? Just today I came across Gefferie's which is indexed under DeAnchfield so I hadn't noticed it before  :)

Hi Claire,
I'm not surprised that Gefferie had an A in his name, that was how they began. It only seems to become Denchfield after Gefferie, Richarde and the Baptism entry for Matthie, son of Richarde mar 7 1600/01

I haven't any Denchfield wills yet, I've been a bit busy with another branch of the family.

Now I know about it, I think Gefferie's is a must.

All the best

Hi Paula  :)

One nice thing about finding the online wills index for Bucks is that I got the year of the elder John's death which was missing from the torn up North Marston registers. His will went to probate in 1689. This is the John who was born in 1639 and was married to Parnell (possibly nee Ingram). He was an ironmonger. I'll let you know what other interesting tidbits I find when the wills arrive in the mail. :)

Cheers

hi paula,

Also found Matthie's will  :) It was proved in 1661. Going to be three weeks or so before I get it. I do have a question for you though. I've seen in other Denchfield posts that you have Richarde born abt 1570 as Gefferie's son. How do you know that? I have the North Marston transcripts and don't see his baptism, so i'm curious if you've found another source which does link them.

Thanks

I have no proof myself, only trust. I rather suspect that the wills you have coming will be the proof we need.
There was a site by a splendid chap called Mark Warner, which had them all joined. Sadly the site is no longer available.
He it was who joined all the Caponhursts together. I took them on with a question mark beside them because I had not seen proof.
Then a friend managed to get hold of a couple of Caponhurst wills, and we knew where he had got his information.
I rather suspect he had seen the Denchfield wills.
His site was very good, and very reliable. I shall be very surprised if it is wrong.
See you

Sometimes trust is all there is  :)

I'll let you know what I find in the wills.
