Yes, I noticed that, I wish I could find them with certainty in 1861/71 if still alive (I think he dies 1877 Thrupp which is just up the road). He is so hard to trace as I wanted to verify his parents but I would be guessing. The Sunningwell and Thatcham John Steptoes turn up elsewhere in 1851. He married in 1819, the 1803 John baptised in Chieveley died and the 1805 one would only be 14 when he married. I am not sure that I will get back further with this one! Thanks for your help :)

A check of FindMyPast confirms that the 1861 Water Eaton, Woodstock Registration area Census records are "missing in their entirety".
A large part of the Woodstock Registration area Census is missing.

Thank you very much, that is good to know as other branches of the family are based there and are untraceable in 1861.
Thank you

That is great thank you very much. I now believe that Mary Steptoe' s Maiden name is gardener and it fits with a Mary Gardener baptised Charlbury 1793.
Thanks again for your help.

To "muddy the waters" even more :)

Baptism
10 Nov 1797-STEPTOE John s Joseph Steptoe shepherd from Chusall (sic) and Mary

? Marriage
20 July 1793 at St Helens Abingdon

No baptism for a Joseph Steptoe and the only Mary Hosler is 1754ish?
