1821 May 13

Henry STRANGE s of John & Mary, Bricklayer (born 13 Apr1821)
Mona Strange <monastrange@yahoo.co.uk> May 2006
I would love to know more about Henry Strange.  He was supposed to have been an artist and my father, Frederick William Strange, says he remembers seeing a  watercolour by Henry Strange about 1963. I have seen his old house at High House, Dymock, and the new one (for him) at Stanley Cottage.  Above the door he had cleverly intertwined the H and S -  which I think stood equally for Henry Strange and Stanley House. [Why not Henry Strange .. Ed.]
Henry married Elizabeth THURSTON in Dymock, Gloucestershire.in 1848.

1823 Apr 9

George Frederick STRANGE s of John & Mary, Bricklayer (born 12 Mar 1823). The above were born to John STRANGE and his second wife Mary GOODALL.

1823 Apr 20

John STRANGE s of William & Anne, Saddler (born 16 Jun 1819)

1823 Apr 20

Martha Sheppard STRANGE d of William & Anne, Saddler (born 14 Jul 1822). The father William could be son of John STRANGE and Ann (HUSGATE); we believe it was they who had a son of this name baptised on 28 Oct 1791; see above. He is recorded as Saddler of Northfield End, Henley in Pigot's Directory.

1835 Aug 9

Jane Letitia Ann STRANGE d of William & Letitia, Gardener, Henley If this William was the son of John Strange baptised 28 October 1791 it would mean that Letitia was his second wife and that he had changed profession from saddler. Note that a William and Letitia were married in Caversham 23 November 1834. Letitia (the mother) died 1872 and was buried in Henley Holy Trinity 25 Oct.

John STRANGE to Elizabeth WHITE

1754 Sep 19

Ann STRANGE, Henley, spinster o.t.p. (Banns) to Palmer MOORE, Remenham, Berks, bachelor Witnesses: John BARKER & Mary BROOKS.

1803 Nov 19

Martha STRANGE, otp, spinster to George Coleman SHEPHERD, otp, bachelor by licence. Witnesses: John STRANGE jnr, Thomas HICKMAN and Sarah WILLMOTT.  She was most probably baptised 1782 Jul 24

1816 May 11

Peter KNIGHT otp Bachelor to Elizabeth STRANGE otp Spinster, Witnesses: William RANDALL, John STRANGE, J. KNIGHT, Eleanor HOTCHKIN & John STRANGE Junior. Elizabeth was possibly the daughter of John Strange and Ann (nee) Husgate as baptised on 28 May 1780.

1819 Nov 24

William STRANGE X Tunbridge Wells, Kent, bachelor, by license to Sarah WOODLEY X otp, spinster. Witnesses: William WOODLEY X, Sarah MOORE X & Knight WOODLEY (with consent of her father) I noticed, when working with the Civil Registration records that there were a lot of STRANGE's in Tunbridge Wells. Was it coincidence that this William came to Henley where our STRANGE's were or did his family originate from here? Did he and Sarah stay in Henley or return to Tunbridge Wells? I also noted from the 1861 Census that a William WOODLEY, aged 62, and his wife Ann, aged 72, were living in Friday Street, Henley (Schedule No 151); were they related to Sarah I wonder? He is shown as a fisherman of Henley and she as a laundress of Bath.

1821 Mar 11

Samuel STRANGE otp Bachelor to Sarah NEWPORT otp spinster Witnesses: William ....... ? and Ann TURNER X.

1839 Feb 26

John STRANGE otp Widower, by licence to Sarah FLEMMING Hurst in the counties of Wilts & Berks, Widow Witnesses: Robert CULLUM and Ann MULCOCK. This John was thought to have been John Benjamin who was baptized 25 December 1803. In fact the evidence is now strong enough to accept that it was indeed John Benjamin's father's third marriage, after Mary Ann Copeland died; he would have been 61 and she 41 at this time. The marriage also appears with different information in the 1837-1840 Marriage Register which shows John as a farmer (his death certificate records him as Yeoman) his father, John Senior, a builder. A marriage certificate has been obtained, it gives no further useful information even ages are only give as 'Full Age'.

Sarah possibly here in 1881 census in Berkshire:
1487/19 Remenham
Sarah STRANGE wid 65 border annuitant boarding with Eliza Lambourne, b Henley Oxon

1839 Feb 26

John STRANGE, Farmer, otp, Widower (Father: John STRANGE, Builder) to Sarah FLEMING, Hurst, Widow, (Father: Martin MULCOCK, Butcher) (Note this event also appears with some different information in Register 1813-1843) (Also noted this entry is not in the Transcript Index).

1856 Jul 3

1859 Aug 7

Richard STRANGE, X, horse keeper, otp, 32, Bachelor (Father: Frederick STRANGE, Chair Maker) to Sarah HUGHS, X, otp, 34, Widow (Father: William Clements, Labourer) Witnesses: Joseph AYRES and Eliza AYRES. Recorded as part of the Frederick STRANGE family) They are most probably the parents of the four children shown as baptized between 1860 and 1867. We have not found a link with either Richard or Frederick. Note my father thought there was a Frederick in the family, so far we have only identified George Frederick born 12 March 1823; too young to be William Copeland's son indeed he is his eldest brother.

1872 May 4

1858 Mar 20 

Sarah Strange 60 (born c1798) Probably fourth wife of John (Jnr 2), married in 1839. Earlier suppositions were that she married the Samuel in 1821 or John's son John Benjamin in 1839. This is a summary of her Will from the Probate Office, we now have a full copy, "Effects Under 200 - 22 April 1858 (corrected from 23 April in Index). The Will of Sarah Strange late of Henley-on-Thames in the County of Oxford Widow deceased who died 15 March 1858 at Henley-on-Thames aforesaid was proved at the Principal Registry by the oath of George Frederick Strange of Henley-on-Thames aforesaid carrier of one of the Executors."

MISCELLANEOUS

From: Heather Olsen
1822 Jan 7 HILLIER Ann x o.t.p. Spin Christian HUTTON married SALTER, Thomas, Widower, License, of Hungerford, Berks.  Witness: Jno Henry COOPER, Mary STRANGE, Jno STRANGE, Anna Maria STRANGE. My Charles Strange married Susanna Compton in 1831. Susanna was born in Henley, and her parents were William Compton and Elizabeth (Hillier).  It may be a total coincidence that the Strange and Hillier names turn up together here, but who knows.

Les Curwood has supplied two excellent files of information related to John STRANGE & Ann HUSGATE and their descendants.  John was grandfather to my William Coplin (Copeland) STRANGE bap s of John & Mary COPLIN (COPELAND) (born 4 Dec 1805, died 1875 Oct 8) - . 3rd GGF to web site owner, Mike STRANGE.

From (p-et-j[at]ntlworld[dot]com) in November 2006
I wonder whether anyone has links with Mary STRANGE (c 1795) who married one Robert ABBOTT (cutler) from Henley
[Ed: There is a Robert ABBOTT son William and Mary,
1814 Jul 3 Robert ABBOTT s of William & Mary (nee STRANGE), Cutler (born 18 May 1814)
I  am 3rd great-grand nephew to Mary Anne STRANGE who married William ABBOTT - she was born c1784 not 1795]
