From Patrick STRANGE 10 May 2002 - Subject: Aldermaston STRANGE's
Here are some details on the children born to William Jefferys STRANGE
and Sophia Draper, married at Theale 14 Oct 1840
Arthur STRANGE married Elizabeth Mary Annie Duckett 3rd Dec 1879
John Thomas STRANGE married Margaret Alice LEAK, 1880
** William Draper STRANGE married Matilda Shackell, ???
Alice STRANGE married Sir Harry Dutton Colt, ???
Ann  STRANGE married Daniel May, ???
Sophia STRANGE married William Keep, ???
I assume that all of the above were born at Aldermaston
** John Thomas STRANGE married Margaret Alice LEAK in 1880 and had the following children
Arthur Percival STRANGE, Francis Gerald STRANGE, Margaret Rose STRANGE*, John STRANGE,
Olivia Mary STRANGE, Alice Beatrice, STRANGE Elizabeth and Violet STRANGE
Margaret Rose married Alick Stoke of Baughurst in 1909. Her gravestone, is recorded by
Helen STRANGE in Aldermaston Churchyard
 
Under "Marriage Licence Bonds transcribed by the Wiltshire Family History Society"
21 May 1763 Henry STRANGE = Elizabeth Lovegrove. This I am sure is the Henry who is
William Jefferys STRANGE's grandfather, Elizabeth Lovegrove was his first wife and
they produced William and Sophia (later Draper). Henry's second marriage to Ann Gibson
resulted in Thomas (1780), William Jefferys father.

Liz Beard said in May 2005
My Gr Gr Grandmother was Cecily Owen Strange, her mother, being Kate Bartholomew. Information handed down through the family says Kate was actually Caroline (known as Kate) and she married William Bartholomew who was MFH (master of foxhounds) at Chieveley Manor, Berkshire and her parents were William & Mary Owen (who's pictures we have) but I have found nothing to correspond with this, Kate's father in IGI is Joseph Bartholomew but this being the case where does the name Owen come from; except her sisters married 'Owens'?

Marg Keable replied, you are related to a number of us on the list  including me. Cicely Owen Strange was the daughter of Francis Strange.  William of Abingdon and his brother, James and sister Frances were living in Abingdon.  William had the 3 children. Francis married Kate Bartholomew (Francis was the son of William of Abingdon and brother to William Alder Strange.)  Francis Strange came from Finsbury, he was a wealthy cooper.  He was the son of Francis Strange of Southwold and prior to that South Elmham in Suffolk.  From there, the Strange family go back to the 1600s.  William of Abingdon had 2 previous wives; the first was Christian Tomkins.  Their only surviving child was William Alder Strange. He married for a second time to Ann Waite and their only surviving child was a Francis who took over Dad's wine business.  His third wife produced a son,Francis, who also married a Bartholomew.  There are two Francis Strange's at Abingdon and both were wine merchants but they were uncle and nephew.

is 2nd cousin to my late father, Frederick Charles STRANGE. The family originated in Aston Tirrold,
erkshire.

My interests are in the Aston Tirrold area of Berkshire In the 1871 census Anne Jones is stated as being the widow of Bernard STRANGE. She has a son named Frederick. In 1881 Frederick is living with Joseph Jones and has a wife named Mary and a son named Frederick ( no mention of Anne, so presumably she died). In Nov 1880 Frederick STRANGE, son of Barny (sic) married Jane Barr, could Barny be Bernard, Anne's first husband? Any help you can give would be much appreciated. Betty Judge replied: You were querying Bernard STRANGE and his wife Ann, this is what I have found: Bernard is an ancestor of my husband, and I have checked all Church records etc. Bernard STRANGE ( also known as Barney) b 1827 Aston Tirrold, died 1863 Aston Tirrold, married Ann North daughter of James North (Gamekeeper) at St Michael's Church Aston Tirrold, witnesses Joseph STRANGE & Alice Jarvis children: James b 1852 AT, Louisa b 1854 AT, Emma b 1857 AT, died 1857 AT, Frederick b 1858 AT, married Mary Barr 1880**, Mary b 1863 AT, m Albert Webb.   Ann STRANGE widow married Joseph Jones (a neighbour) of Aston Tirrold 1868 witnesses Noah Ebsworth and Marie Jones.   1871 Census Aston Tirrold Berks living Lower End of Aston Tirrold village.

From Peter Morgan: Ruth was born in Long Wittenham 1797 - see baptisms there.
The North Moreton census records show Ruth Barr from 1841 onwards. Her age is
slightly indecipherable in '41, but from then on her age consistently pitches
her at a birth of about 1797. Their children were born at North Moreton where
she was buried, the register quotes the date of burial as 7 Feb 1883, aged 86.

My mother's family is descended from Jeremiah STRANGE, born 1820, son of Joseph & Harriot. The information is from Reading Record Office"   Liz also says: James STRANGE & Martha Warwick: married 1788 in Cholsey Thomas STRANGE & Dinah Walsh: married not 1894, but 1804 in Cholsey & Thomas, Richard, William, George & Mary are their children. Dinah d 1826.   The Joseph born 1796 to Joseph STRANGE and Martha Warwick is, I think, my ggggf.   There is mention of a couple, Joseph and Mary, who had Charlotte, b1814 and Francis b 1816 (who m Elizabeth of Pangbourne). I wonder if Joseph whom Harriot possibly previously m Mary, thus Francis could also be stepbrother to my gg gf Jeremiah, but I also have a record of another couple producing children at the same time, Joseph and Ann. This Joseph could have previously m Mary. You, however, have Francis down as son of Harriot, so this adds to the theory that this Joseph previously m Mary.   Charles and Maryann Lovegrove m in Cholsey 14.4.47 Jeremiah and Mary Watkins m in Wootton Bassett Wilts, 30.4.40. They had John b1840, George b1843, Joseph b1845, Harriet b1848, Ellen b1850, Joseph b1853, William b1855, Elizabeth b1858(my g gm) and Emily b1860. Prolific! James & Martha Read m 25.12.50 in Cholsey. James is, I think, Jeremiah's younger brother.
The Ann, daughter of George, baptised 6.6.41 had a mother called Marian.
See London for Cecil 'Richard' STRANGE, in 1891 in Finsbury/Shoreditch, Shortly after Chrissie Cox  said: I have Joseph STRANGE and Harriot who had several children including Edward who married for a
second time to Rachel Challis who was my cousin 3 times removed. Children of Joseph & Harriot: John (1819 - ) Jeremiah (1821 - ) m Mary ?? Robert (1822 - 1822) George (1824 - ) Eleanor (1828 - ) Eliza ( 1828 - ) James ( 1830 - ) m Martha READ 25 Dec 1850 Edward (1831 - 1865) m Eliza BLACKALL then married Rachel Challis (1842 - 1867)   From: Chrissie I have a dilemma. My cousin Rachel Challis married Edward STRANGE in Cholsey 21 May 1864. According to the parish register Edward was born in 1834 making him 30 when he married Rachel, but looking at the births the only Edward I can find around that time is the son of Joseph & Harriot c26 June 1831. Rachel was born in 1842 but at the time of marriage stated that she was 25 (another white lie!). As Edward was a widower is it feasible that they both lied about their ages to make the marriage more acceptable or is there another explanation?   Liz responds: It seems Edward is the son of Joseph & Harriot, and born 1831. His first daughter Kate is later to be found living with Harriot in the census 1871 (see Census attachment ). Edward also lowered his age when he married Eliza Blackall in 1856, said he was 23.  He wasn't the only one to falsify his age. In 1867 when Harriet, daughter of Edward's brother Jeremiah, was married she said she was 21, when she was only 20.    (Ed ... I was able to link cousins Chrissie and Liz Horner together and said it may be useful to look at Wallingford - St. Leonard's for a marriage of  Joseph Strenge of this parish & Harriet Francis of this parish, m by banns, 16 Jan 1816 (witnesses: Martha Strenge, Martha Francis, Matthew Champion))

In 1951 it occupied 5962 acres and had a population of 1385. Cumnor Place has now entirely disappeared; it was the scene of the murder of Amy Robsart in 1560. She was the daughter of Sir John Robsart and wife of Robert Dudley, afterwards Earl of Leicester. At the time of her murder she was here under the charge of Anthony Forster, she met her death either by accident or foul play, by the latter according to common belief. She was discovered dead at the bottom of an old staircase (source Pears Cyclopaedia, 1965-66)

Christenings From the BVRI: [From Margaret:  All those christened in Cumnor are my husband's family. What we don't seem to be able to find is the birth of William (the father), nor his marriage to Sarah. He subsequently married Lydia we believe in either Wootton or Sunningwell but can find no record of that either.]

From Patrick STRANGE:
I am pretty sure that the mother and father, of some of the children, are Thomas and Ann (WELLBELOVE) married at Clewer 10th Oct 1809. They had two other children Thomas (1809) and my gggr and father William Jefferys STRANGE (1811). Thomas was also a farmer and miller, as well as being a brewer, as mentioned in the transcript.

It's interesting as it seems to indicate that they moved from Tilehurst to Sulhamstead between 1811 and 1816. However Ann (WELLBELOVE) was born around 1780, which would probably make her a little elderly for Eliza (1828) and Anna Matilda STRANGE (1836). So it seems possible that these last two girls are the daughters of the son Thomas (1809) and his wife Ann Matilda.

From Meg STRANGE
There is very little information at present from the Sunningwell records. Some of the books have been lost, destroyed or just generally misplaced. Source 5th Ed Oxfordshire Parish Registers and Bishop's Transcripts by Colin Harris, produced by the Oxfordshire Family History Society.   The Berkshire Record Office are supposed to hold PR's C 1543-1972, M 1556-1989, Banns 1755-1815, 1854-1910, B 1545-1958 [gaps C1836-1854, B 1842-1853]; (Inc) M 1837+. As I have found very little at the BRO I must have been looking in the wrong place. Next time we go I will delve further. BT's appear to be held from 1605-1835, with various gaps at the Wiltshire Record Office, so presumably Sunningwell must have been in the Salisbury Diocese.   From Denise Oliver October 2003:

On her marriage certificate, I have Jane STRANGE, father Conartis STRANGE a labourer. Jane was born in 1850 in Wallingford, Berkshire (according to the1881 census).  I am trying to find any other record of "Conartis"   Jane married my great grandfather Frederick KINGSTON in May 1874 at Greenwich Register Office. they lived in Deptford for the remainder of their lives. I would love to find details of Jane's birth/baptism, any siblings she may have had and who her mother was.

Betty Judge says: STRANGE thing is I have a William STRANGE who married an Ann Woodward
( b Oct 1744) on 17 June 1765 at West Hanney Church Berks.
 
From Patrick STRANGE  5 May 2002
I have from Berkshire records, copies of three will's for STRANGEs from East Hanney.
They date from the 1600's and are almost impossible to read;
Thos STRANGE, Yeoman, East Hanney, 1684
Wm STRANGE., sen., husb., East Hanney 1673
Wm STRANGE., yeo, East Hanney 1708
 
Betty Judge says regarding the above wills:
Thomas STRANGE married Margaret Adams in 1617.  Sons & grandson:
THOMAS STRANGE b 1621 died 1684. West Hanney
John STRANGE b 1624 - son WILLIAM b 1670 died 1708 West Hanney
WILLIAM STRANGE b 1625 died 1673.West Hanney.
As you can see all three are closely related, two brothers, Thomas and William, and a 
nephew William. 
 
Betty Judge says:
Subject: William STRANGE, glass-man 
This subject is close to me heart as Francis STRANGE of Lyford is Stan's ancestor. So here
is more info I have collected:
I have on record that a William STRANGE son of Francis and Mary Day STRANGE bap 15 July 1742
West Hanney Berks could have been the apprentice mentioned, He was living at All Hallows in
the City of Oxford when he married Ann Woodward of Long Wittenham Berks, on 27 June 1765 by
licence, at West Hanney Church, witnesses John Woodward and Helena Noyes They had four
children accounted for (but see Ed's comments below which I support MS); all baptised at Long
Wittenham Church. Ann bap 29 Sep 1766; William bap 29 July 1767; Elizabeth bap 14 June 1768;
and Rose bap 3 July 1770.
 
An Ann STRANGE was buried 19 Nov 1770 in Parish of All Saints Oxford. (Could be daughter or
wife.
 
Then a Wm STRANGE of All Saints Oxford b 1749?? Chinaman married Mary Hope, in 1771, as
described and they had 5 children, all died. and were buried at All Saints Oxford (one, a
daughter, Sarah, bap 24 Jan 1776 All Saints Oxford, buried 9 May 1779.  
The All Saints Oxford Register also states a Mr STRANGE was carried to Hanney for burial
10 Oct 1786.  Is this the Older William STRANGE who was the original chinaman.??  Also a
widow STRANGE from Oxford was buried at West Hanney 21 April 1763.  Cannot be his wife, she
has died first.  
 
Berkshire Poll books show 30/31 March and April 1 1768. 
Covers all Hundreds SOG re BK?/P1768 
William STRANGE abode Oxford, freehold East Hanney, land occupied Wm. Herman.  In 1784
William STRANGE ,occupation China and Glassman,Earthenware/glass, was listed in Bailey
British Directory Vol 1 London; Vol 2 Western Directory; Vol 3 Northern Directory; Vol 4
The Eastern Directory.  The probate etc are the same. and letters of Administration granted
to Mary STRANGE widow. Nov 1800.  A Mary STRANGE married by licence Joseph Holland on 1804 
August 1 at All Saints Oxford.  Witnesses Mary Ward and James Lush. from All Saints records.
I have not followed this up, nor have I found the children of his first marriage. 
Still lots to do and lots of queries to sort out:
Who was the first William STRANGE Chinaman?
Who possibly was born at East Hanney?
Would a copy of the will make any sense to the above queries?
 
Ed Hanson adds:
From the Hanney baptisms, it looks like among William STRANGE's six children were William
(1714) and Francis (1716). Francis is probably the father of the William (1742) who was
apprenticed in 1759; note that Francis was called "of Lyford" when his daughter Mary was
baptised in 1744, although not so designated in connection with the other children.
William (1714) was probably the original "chinaman" and also the one who was "Mr STRANGE,
carried to Hanney, bur 10 Oct 1786", according to the All Saints' Oxford registers.
The "widow STRANGE, from Oxford," buried at Hanney, 21 April 1764, might possibly have been
his mother. I think he may have been the William who married at Hanney, "William STRANGE,
All Hallows, City of Oxford & Ann Woodward, m by Lic., 27 June 1765 (witnesses: John
Woodward, Helena Noyes)". She was called the "w Will. STRANGE, All Saint's Oxford," when
buried at Hanney, 19 Nov 1770. I don't think they had any children and don't find any
probate record for him.
William (1742), the second "chinaman", was called a bachelor in his  marriage record 
("William STRANGE, bach of All Saints Oxford, & Mary Hope spinster of this parish, m at
St Cross, Oxford, by Lic., 21 May 1771 [witnesses: Francis Morley, Sarah Young]"). 
They had the five children, who all died young, as noted before. Although I don't find a
death record for the first wife, he probably married secondly at North Hinksey, Oxon. 
("William STRANGE of All Saints, Oxford, & Mary Jessett of this parish, m 10 Nov 1796 
[witnesses: Hester Jessett, Richard Joyce]"). As noted, when he died in 1800, his widow 
"Mary" was granted administration.  
I think that the Long Wittenham reference is misleading and actually belongs to the STRANGE
family which had long been established there.  Long Wittenham registers give "Will STRANGE
& Ann STRANGE, both of this parish, m at Long Wittenham, 27 Sept 1767, license (witnesses:
Tho. Pool, Elizabeth STRANGE)".  I have listings from the registers of only four children:
Elizabeth, bp at Long Wittenham 14 June 1768 (probably died young); Rose, bp at Long
Wittenham 3 June 1770; William, bp Long Wittenham 11 April 1773; and Elizabeth, bp at Long
Wittenham 8 June 1783, who was listed in the 1851 census of Long Wittenham: Elizabeth
STRANGE, unm, 68, b Long Wittenham. I can't find a reference to the Ann, bap 29 Sep 1766 or
the William bp 29 July 1767. 
 
William STRANGE of East Hanney, Berks; children:
I.   Eleanor, bp at Hanney, 7 March 1712/3
ii. William, bp at Hanney, 19 Dec 1714. Perhaps "chinaman" of Oxford who took his nephew William (son of Francis) as apprentice in 1759. iii. Francis, bp at Hanney, 14 Sept 1716 (see below) iv.

West Hanney, son of Francis & Elizabeth (Herring) STRANGE married 2nd wife Mary (Martha) Pullen (bap 1812 West Hanney) 23 Feb 1834 at East Hanney Berks, witnesses. Dennis Pullen & Martha STRANGE (sister of groom)   Betty Judge has added: William STRANGE son of Francis & Mary STRANGE baptised May 11 1845 West Hanney Church, In 1861 Census West Hanney he is 16 yr. single Ag Lab working for Wm North of Wallingford, at Newnham Mirren, Wallingford Berks.  He married Mary Jane Carpenter, daughter of John and Mary Ann Carpenter, (lab) (bap 2 April 1848 at West Hanney Church), on November 17 1866 at West Hanney. They have had 9 children: Mary Ann b 1870 West Hanney William b 1870 " (Possibly 1901 Census New Shoreham, Sussex, William STRANGE 31 General Lab. b West Hanney Berks) Sarah b 1873 " Emma b 1875 " Alice b 1876 " Ada b 1880 St Botolph's Sussex Minnie b 1882 " Florence J b 1885 " David b 1887 " In 1871 Census West Hanney Berks. William STRANGE was head of house married Ag Lab West Hanney , with wife and 2 children..

Here is an update from Betty in April 2007:
This is part of the East Hanney Strange family:
Katherine Strange b abt 1660 East Hanney bap 1662  Charney Bassett, dau of Thomas Strange b 1621 Denchworth died 1684 West Hanney and Judith  who died 1667 West Hanney, Married  Richard Stone  (b 1652 North Hinksey, died 1675 age 27.) They had daughter Katherine Stone b 1674 bap 14 Jan 1674 North Hinksey, who married Rev. Bramfield (Bampfylde) Drake b 13 April 1670 Buckland Monchorum Devon, son of  Joseph & Margaret nee Crymes of Buckland Monochorum. on 8 May 1692 at West Hanney Berks. They had  6 children:

My husband's family can be traced back to a burial in Wootton, Boars Hill, Oxford (Old Berkshire, pre 1974) which is a small village about 5 miles from Abingdon, of a William STRANGE (1740-12.11.1793) = Sarah (????.- 9.9.1778) | Thomas STRANGE (c1.12.1776, b23.3.1823 Wootton) = Martha (bur (died?)30.12.1843, Wootton | James STRANGE (c 4.1.1818, b19.6.1896 Wootton) = Rachel Lowe (bur 11.3.1876, Wootton) | 1) Mark STRANGE = Hannah Wake (my husband's direct line) 2) Martha STRANGE (born 1844, Wootton)   I know from experience that Census ages can differ by as much as a couple of years or even more, so its possible that your Martha aged 29 (ie born 1842) could have been a couple of years younger.  Because of the fact that we have been concentrating on the direct line I haven't come across any other information regarding Martha in any of the Parish Registers which we have researched. I have also come to a dead halt about the birth place of William born 1740. Did any of your STRANGES contain a William? We have found a William who married an Ann in one of the local churches, but there is still a generation gap, this William came from Faringdon, so further West still from Suffolk, but that's not to say it might not be another relation!!   Meg's information is available for download in both a document file and a GED file. The document includes the 1841 Census for Wootton and much more!   *****************************************

10. Requests:
From Liz Beard, April 2005:
I have information  regarding one Kate Bartholomew (Strange) which has been handed down from my gr grandmother but I am not sure if she made a mistake.  Kate who married Francis Strange (Wine Merchant in Abingdon) in 1841 (Berkshire info). has a daughter Cecily Owen Strange (my gr gr grandmother) page 29 shows Cecily's marriage to William Jackson.  However, on my family notes father of Kate (or Caroline)  was William Bartholomew (Master of the Fox Hounds) who married Caroline Owen  whose parents were William & Mary Owen.  But on the IGI Kate's parents were Joseph & Mary, ...........Strange being the operative word!  I am trying to discover where the 'Owen' fits in and with the Joseph and Mary it doesn't! and wondered if anyone could throw some light on it.

*****************************************

From Godfrey Bell Sep 2005
Mrs Henrietta Clark (nee Ayers) was aunt to Richard Clark STRANGE b1839 in New Park Street, Devizes according to the Family Bible), and baptized at Streatley, Berks. Henrietta is recorded in the Family Bible as living in Ilsley.  I have found a West and East Ilsley near Streatley in Berks.  However, I cannot find a plain "Ilsley".
