Lookup Aston & Cote oxfordshire William Harris
« on: Thursday 07 April 11 04:39 BST (UK) »
I've hit a wall.

William Harris (born about 1863) in Aston & Cote Oxfordshire.  I can find him I believe in the 1881 Census and Again in 1901 (he's missing from the household in 1891) Married to Mary Ann (sometimes shown as just Ann)

Mary Ann (wife, née HUTTON) b. 1865 Longcot.

The family resided on Back Lane in 1891 and 1901.

I'm looking for the parents of William (there are a lot of Harris's in Aston)

Any help is appreciated!  I'm going to be visiting Aston Oxon at the end of April/start of May and am trying to gather as much info as I can before I go.

This looks like his birth on Familysearch.org.......

William James Harris baptised 23 Oct 1864 at Bampton Aston, Oxfordshire. Parents shown as William Harris and Harriett.

There are 3 villages next to each other, Bampton, Aston and Cote so that certainly looks like him......

Thank you for the looks ups...   I don't think that that is him...   it may be but I've never seen the J or James used at other times when finding him.  Nor is James a name that shows up in the family history later on as a common name.

Are there any other William Harris's from or residing in Aston and Cote in the 1871 census?  I think I found one in the BMD data but there are two possible ones and I would hate to have to order both Certs.

If you go on FreeBMD and search for William Harris births 1861-1864 in Oxfordshire then it comes up with about 40 entries! However Aston Bampton came  under Witney Registration District so that narrows it down to 7 entries.....

William Harris
March 1861
2 for December 1861
March 1863

William George Harris
June 1863

William Arthur Harris
March 1864

William Jame Harris (the one I found on familysearch)
September 1864

I'm guessing that William George Harris  (June 1863) is him as his child I know was named George William.

Can anyone see him (William George Harris) in the 1871 census?  I'm looking for the name of his parents. They should be in Aston & Cote somewhere.

I appreciated all the input and help everyone is providing!  I'm luck to have found this site.

I think that may be them...  I looked up Ducklington on the map and it's just outside of Aston.  Can anyone clue me in on what Claywell is?  When I look that up on google the only thing that comes up is a cottage on Aston Rd just outside of Ducklington.

I think I'll be able to write completed on this one very shortly.  Again.. thanks for all the help... you guys are wonderful.  I'm going to have lots of places to visit on my trip to Oxfordshire.
