CAKEBREAD I am descended from Robert Cakebread 1776 (Bloxham) and Elizabeth Walker. I have details of numerous Cakebread marriages and burials but few baptisms pre 1800 so what happened in Bloxham? Are the baptism records lacking or did the Cakebreads just opt out ? My ancestors moved to Coventry in 1839 and I have good details of the family "twigs" after that date. I have a web-site which is gradually being extended to try to link various Cakebread families in the Midlands areas plus a connection to many California Cakebreads.

FENIMORE & CROOK Mary CROOK (b 1650) married Richard FENIMORE on 4 December 1672 at the Banbury Monthly Meeting (Quakers). He was from Tingewick, Bucks. Mary was from Addebury. I would like to know anything about her parents, if possible. I have a lot of information on the Fenymore/Fenimores, but not much on the women they married! I am an American living in the UK now, and would love to be able to take my children on a "biological historical" tour of the country. Richard and Mary left England probably in 1677, as all three of their sons are listed as having been born in Tingewick.
Any help would be appreciated.

HOLTOM WALTON Epwell is the location of my WALTON and HOLTOM ancestors.

Joseph WALTON and Elizabeth baptised 11 children there between 1756 and 1778. One of their daughters was Elizabeth junior baptised in 1766. Joseph and his wife were both buried at Epwell, Joseph in 1800 and Elizabeth in 1779.

Joseph HOLTOM married Elizabeth WALTON junior at Epwell in 1787. They baptised 6 children there between 1788 and 1803. One of those children was Thomas baptised in 1791. Joseph HOLTOM died in 1822 and Elizabeth in 1847, aged 80.

Thomas HOLTOM married Hannah BEAL at Alderminster in 1812 and 6 of their 8 children were baptised at Epwell, the other two were baptised at Tysoe. One of those two was Eliza baptised at Tysoe in 1815. Thomas and Hannah HOLTOM were in the Epwell censuses of 1841, 1851 and 1861. Thomas was buried in 1861 just 2 weeks after the census. Hannah lived on till 1870 and died at the age of 79.

Eliza HOLTOM married Richard LAMBERT at Potterspury in 1832. All but one of their 7 children were baptised at Yardley Gobion.

. . . . . and so all my known direct descendants of Banburyshire ancestors had then left the area.

OWEN Joseph OWEN married in Chacombe in Northamptonshire in 1820. One of the witnesses at his marriage was Benjamin OWEN - must have been a relative. At the time he said he was from Buckingham. But in the 1841 census he claimed to have been born in the county of Northamptonshire. He was buried in Chacombe in 1845 aged 54, so that makes his birth around 1791, but he wasn't baptised there. Where did he come from?

SABIN TURPIN Chacombe is the location of my SABIN ancestors.

The earliest are Gabriell SABINE and his wife Margaret who had 8 children between 1589 and 1609, amongst them was Gabriell junior baptised there in 1606. The 1654 will of their son John revealed that their daughter Anne had married an ARIS and their daughter Elizabeth had married a HEFFORD. Banbury Wills & Inventories 1591-1620 includes the 1605/6 will of David MAYOWE of Grimsbury which listed £2 in the hands of Gabriell SABYNE of Chacombe.
After the death of his first wife Hester, Gabriell SABIN junior, a husbandman, married Elizabeth TURPIN at Chacombe in 1640. The will of his brother Richard in 1633 mention their joint ownership of a cow at Williamscot. I have found only one child of Gabriell junior and Elizabeth. (Wardington which includes Willamscot is mentioned in the VCH, Banbury Hundred, page 219 as the home of a "deep-rooted farming family" who can be traced back to a Thomas SABIN of Coton, aged 60 in 1530. - a very interesting statement!!!!!)
That only child was John SABIN, baptised at Chacombe in 1641 and buried at Bradden in 1705. He had married an Anne and all their 8 children were baptised between 1668 and 1685 at Bradden. My SABINs had therefore left Banburyshire.

WELLER William WELLER married twice at St Mary's in Banbury, firstly Elizabeth PAGE in 1790 - the one child from this union, Richard, died unmarried in Banbury Union Workhouse (Neithrop) in 1840, three months after his father's death.
The second marriage to Elizabeth JONES in 1800 produced two children - Mary and Thomas - Mary married John GRIMES but they had no surviving children - my wife is descended from the union of Thomas WELLER & Elizabeth MOBLEY (see MOBLEY above). There are these earlier WELLER marriages in Banbury: Sarah WELLER to Samuel SLATTER in 1779 and Ann WELLER to John SMITH in 1780; otherwise we have found no earlier record for this WELLER family Submitter: Peter Cook
