John Tennant born 1796 in Fulwell, Oxon married Ann Smith born 1794 in Long Compton at the church of St Peter & Paul, Long Compton on 12 April 1819. They were my 3 x Great Grandparents.

Their children were all born in Long Compton and are as follows:


Ann Tennant, my 3 x Great Grandmother was sadly murdered in Long Compton on 15 September 1875 by James Haywood (Heywood) who stabbed her to death with a pitchfork. He believed her to be the leader of a pack of 15 witches who lived in Long Compton and he said she had bewitched him all day as he had worked in the fields. She was walking home in the evening from the nearby bakers shop when she met James Haywood who was a neighbour of many years.
