Drinkwater/Florey marriage -Standlake? Oxon 1846
« on: Sunday 05 January 14 18:35 GMT (UK) »
Dear Chatters,
I am a rootschat virgin, so please be gentle if my etiquette is faulty.
Born a Drinkwater, I have traced my paternal line from Yorkshire to a George D (b 1849) in Standlake Oxon.
From the Floreys of Standlake genealogy document I have the following

45. MARY8 FLOREY (JOSEPH7, RICHARD6, ROBERT5, ROBERT4, THOMAS3, THOMAS2, ROBERT1) was born February 17, 1828 in Standlake. She married JULES DRINKWATER April 11, 1846, son of JOHN DRINKWATER.

Child of MARY FLOREY and JULES DRINKWATER is: George born about 1849 in standlake.

By 1851, the census records a widowed Mary and child as living back with her mother Hannah Florey in Standlake.

Can anyone offer a lead on the origins or fate of Jules DRINKWATER or his father John? I'm guessing they were from Oxfordshire, that the marriage was in Standlake, Witney or nearby, but can find no trace online.
Any help gratefully received before I treck to the Oxford History Centre.
Thanks
Drinks

Could this be the marriage?  Standlake is in Witney registration district.

Jun 1846 5 brides and 5 grooms listed including
James Drinkwater
Mary Flory

Incidentally one of the other brides listed is Amey Flory possibly a sister?

There's a death for a James Drinkwater in Jun 1850 Witney  :)

Hi drinks,

In the Northmoor marriages "Banns" there is this entry;

20-2-1876 George Drinkwater of Standlake & Ann Buckingham.

Unfortunately, the transcripts I have from the Oxfordshire FHS only go unto 1840 for marriages
and I do not have the Standlake registers to check.

Also this baptism;
24-12-1854 Anne Buckingham d/o Benjamin & Sarah, Labr.

Meant to add that Northmoor is a neighbouring parish to Stadnlake.

Hope this helps.

Possible in 1851 Standlake are this family. 

John Drinkwater 64 born Brize Norton Oxfordshire
Ann 67 born Bampton Ox
Isaac 26 born Standlake
David 23 born Standlake

Father and sons farm labourers

1841

John 55
Ann 55
Ann 21
Isaac 15
David 13

No James with them unfortunately but there are Flory family members living close by.

Dear Millie and Ribbo,
Wow -I am astonished and thrilled with the speed and detail of your responses to my enquiry. Rootschat is definitely a motherlode and there are some real nuggets in what you have sent, though it may take some sorting before I find my Jules.

I am fairly convinced  by your information that my Jules was this James marrying Mary Flory in June 1846 ( thanks Millie)  also that James was the 23 yr old Farmer in /Standlake in 1841 as the age fits well with Mary Flory's (thanks again M).   Not sure yet how he links in with other Drinkwaters listed in your various posts. I'll need to work on the dates and ages. James/Jules should be dead by 1851 census -Mary was a widow by then. If he is the son of John and Ann then he must have been working away from home at the time of the 1841 census.

Ribbo, thanks a lot for the extra details on marriage of George D and Ann Buckingham and Anne's parents. More than I had already. George and Ann were the couple that moved to Yorkshire.

Once again, I'm overwhelmed by your responses, and thank you both loads. I thought I had reached a dead end, but now the way ahead is much clearer.
Cheers
Drinks
