1.11  Oxford Diocesan Marriage Bonds and Affidavits, 1661-1850.
From Ed  Hanson
These entries cover Marriage bonds and affidavits issued by the Bishop of Oxford, taken from a multi-volume typescript at the Centre for Oxfordshire Studies. There is a separate set for the licenses issued by the Archdeacon. Note also that Benson and other surrounding villages appear to be covered in one of two peculiaries, either Monks Risborough or Banbury, and not by the diocesan or archdiaconal ones. The dates listed are the dates of the license, not of the marriage.

Part of a series - Victoria History of the Counties of England - Volume 6, Page 244
The Manor of Middleton
Alice Lacey married Thomas Earl of Lancaster; he was executed March 1322 and she remarried Sir Ebles Lestrange without the King's licence but Edward III granted several of Alice's manors; includes Middleton to Ebles Lestrange for life. They had a son, Roger Lestrange, Lord of Knockin 1348; the line continued for over 100 years.

To the Lestrange whose main estates were in Shropshire; Middleton presented itself as a manor which could conveniently be assigned to dower, and it was held first by Joan, the widow of Roger Lestrange (d1349) then by Alice widow of another Roger Lestrange (d1398) then by Maud widow of John Lestrange (d1398). In 1479 on death of John the manor came into the possession of the Earls of Derby by the marriage of his only daughter and heiress, Joan, to George Stanley.

Cato Street Conspiracy: Robert Brayne, mayor of Banbury, to Hobhouse about the character of William Strange, and that John Strange is unknown to him 1820 Apr 3   -   Banbury April 3/ 20
Sir,
William Strange the person, whose character Lord Sidmouth has desired of me, came to settle in this place as a draper about a year ago, during which time he has conducted himself with seeming propriety, & appears to be under no particular suspicion of any kind, His native place is Wardington in Northamptonshire five miles from hence. He has lately given out that he is going to remove to Brackley & nothing further of him than that he is one of those cheap-shop adventurers who do not stay long in one place.   Of the prisoner John Strange we know nothing.

5.  The Parishes of Oxfordshire

This list shows the parishes of pre-1974 Oxfordshire. The dates in parentheses are, to the best of my knowledge, the dates of the earliest existing registers for that parish. If you know otherwise please let me know (Note this reference is only included until the full extent of each of the registers is known and shown here).  For later dates, especially those in the 19th/20th centuries, it indicates the year in which the parish was formed. A place marked "ex.par." was outside the jurisdiction of any parish, such status was abolished in 1894.

Subject: William Strange - Farnborough Warks & Banbury Oxf
Asking Paul Strange she said, "Do you have additional info on this William? I do not know
of any connection between my Stranges and him, but as my Stranges have some connections to
both Banbury and Warwickshire, there may be a connection somewhere.   From Banbury records I have baptisms of two of William and Susanna's children: William Strange bap. 1 Nov 1839 Henry Albert Strange bap. 15 May 1844. I also have the marriage, 5 June 1821 in Banbury of William Strange, Draper, and Sarah
Haddon. Is this the same William, and Sarah a first wife, or are they two different people?" Paul replied, "The only thing I can add is that I think a William Strange married a Susannah
Cooper in 1837 (Banbury). This fits the Farnborough MI and the children's birth dates.
Also that Warwickshire Stranges in the 19thC seem to be rare, so it may be worth you looking

Marriage:
1576 Aug 16 Anthony Straung & Ellyn Dring

From Patrick Martin (mart139(at)bellsouth(dot)net)
(law professor Louisiana State University) - 12 Nov 2004

I am writing a paper on a member of the family of Anthony Straunge on your site for 1576-7. He says, "This data is consistent with what I have learned from other sources including the wills of this Ellyn, her first husband (Simon Dring) and of Anthony Strange himself. I will probably cite your web-site for this data but I suppose it might be useful to have a look at the underlying documents if that can be done without too much difficulty. I’ve ordered the visitations of Oxford and may be able to come up with some additional information via it on the Dring and Strange families. But I might like to gather some further information on a couple of points and your services might be useful. From the wills I gather that Ellyn Dring Strange was probably Ellen or Helene Belsyre (Belser, Belcher) before marriage. I would like to learn what relation if any she had to Alexander Belsyre, a noted Oxford scholar who was the first president of St Johns College.

A second area of interest to me concerns a property transaction or several.
Thomas Strange became a Jesuit priest (and he was the Oxford student of 1593 that you mention). He used the aliases of Hungerford and Anderton. It may only be a coincidence but Sir Anthony Hungerford at some point in the early 1600s acquired an estate at Black Bourton. I’m curious whether this might have been the estate which had been owned by Simon Dring when he married Ellyn Belser and whether Strange could have been a relative of the Hungerford family. The Strange family had property in Gloucestershire, and I am interested in discovering if any transactions can be traced that took place in about 1600 to 1610.

She was listed in the 1901 census of Bicester Market, Oxon: George Strange 48, b Sutton Courtney Berks, Ironmongers Porter Mary Strange 47 b Bicester Edward Strange 19 b Bicester Agricultural Labourer George Strange 18 b Bicester Agricultural Labourer Edith Strange 14 b Bicester General Servant Albert Strange 13 b Bicester Errand Boy Port Elsie Strange 10 b Bicester Ada Strange 7 b Bicester Alice Strange 6M b Bicester.

Her father George, was listed as a mortician, age 25, when he married Mary Ann Leach, 24, at Bicester, 14 May 1878. Further back, George's father was Henry.  Henry Strange wasn't very good at his age; in the 1861, 1881, and 1901 censuses all list him as being born in Sutton Courtenay, BUT listed his age in 1861 as 29; in 1881 as 44; in 1901 as 73; and in his burial record in 1908 as 80. This would put his birthdate anywhere between 1828 and 1837, and I don't find him anywhere else at present, although obviously not the little boy who was buried in 1817. Henry's wife Amy similarly seems to have had trouble remembering her age, which varies from 27 in 1861; 40 in 1881; 66 in 1901 census and 64 in her 1901 burial record.

Paul Dandridge, Dorchester & Mary Strange, Newnam, m 11 Nov 1707 

From Maisie White, South Africa: I see you have found my John Strange DANDRIDGE yes that is his name and it follows through at least 3 if not 4 generations I say my as I am trying to piece together the UK DANDRIDGE jigsaw although I am not one hundred % sure where John the father of the John who married Letitia STRANGE fits into the scenario. DANDRIDGE JOHN  21 Oct 1760 KINGS WALDEN HERTS STRANGE LETITIA There are about 4 generations from their son John Strange DANDRIDGE all bearing the same name, with the last of the name as far as I can tell dying in Tasmania.(See PCC Wills, PROB 11/1940 23 February 1841 Will of Reverend John Strange Dandridge, Rector, Clerk of Rousham, Oxfordshire .... Ed).  This John S DANDRIDGE could be the son of John and Letitia who was born bef 12/04/1765 or his son JSD born abt 1793 m Susan ? possibly in Worcs but so far I am still researching and double checking the IGI info which places their son JSD born 1823 in Droitwich and their daughter Catherine Letitia D 1824 in Inkberrow. There are two links between STRANGE and DANDRIDGE as far as I know at this time, the above link and the following: DANDRIDGE PAUL 1707 CUXHAM STRANGE MARY h = DORCHESTER w = NEWNHAM Religion BAPTISTS.

I hope to have the time to write up my own family history; some of it makes quite fascinating reading; meanwhile here are some of the more juicy bits whilst I get on with the collection of everyone elses STRANGE families!

This is the most significant parish for the history of my own family with John STRANGE c1749-1809 coming most probably from Long Wittenham, Berkshire, where there is evidence that his ancestors were for about 100 years.  His first marriage was in Caversham but that was short-lived, his wife, Jane DORMER, died in childbed.  John later came to Henley and won the contract to build the new workhouse in 1790/91; now a Grade II listed building.  The Contract for this job (which was worth £1600); and its associated Bond are held in the Oxfordshire Archives References C IV 11/2 F36 and F37.

John must have stayed around Caversham as this was where one of his sons, John STRANGE 1778-1845, was baptized. He also was to be a builder and owned a brick kiln at Comp Farm.  He died leaving an estate of £800; his fourth wife Sarah MULCOCK) survived him, Mary Ann COPELAND, Mary GOODALL and Amy HANCOCK didn't!

A son, William Copeland STRANGE 1805-1875 (my great, great, grandfather), got up to all sorts of mischief including a bankruptcy (The Times, June 25, 1856; pg.6; Issue 22403; col A; Official Appointments and Notices - From the London Gazette of Tuesday, June 24. Lord Chamberlain's Office, May 31. Bankrupts - William Copeland Strange, Henley-on-Thames, Bricklayer, July 8, at half-past 1 o'clock, August 6, at 1, at the Bankrupts' Court: solicitors, Messrs. Surr and Gribble, Abchurch-lane; official assignee, Mr.Stansfeld).  There is a family story from a cousin in Canada, Arthur STRANGE, that William went bankrupt because he was not paid for work he carried out on Reading Jail 

William was later to be made an officer of the Local Board, Surveyor, Collector of Rates and Inspector of Nuisances; he was found to have misappropriated the rates and was sacked. William met his maker in the hospital of the workhouse his grandfather had built (and he had modified the cess pits there himself).  

It was in this very workhouse that my great grandfather, James STRANGE, was to be found in 1881 with his mother and two sets of twin sisters.    ....... more anon.

11 children in Holton, Oxon and died in Holton in 1803. By my calculation he must have been
born before 1720 but where. The nearest found was in 1711 Jun 12 William Strange, son
William & Frances in Long Wittenham. Said both of Holton at marriage.

[Note: I am advised by Kate Partridge that the name "Ropard" should be "Richard", she has Richard BLUNT as one of her ancestors - MS]

Kate also said in Jan 2006, "I do not know what the connection is but some of the witnesses on the Strange will are the same as on Richard Blunts will in 1629. Richard was a yeoman in Mixbury, and seemed relatively well off. His son , Welsborn, was a linen draper in Bicester and warrants a mention in the Victoria County Histories. The Blunts/Blounts had become ag-labs by the middle 1700` s, so lost their wealth fairly quickly. I feel that they were Catholic as their fortunes faltered after the Inter-regnum. The Mixbury records only go back to 1645, so I do not know if they are originally from Mixbury, but we have never found a satisfactory marriage for a Richard Blunt elsewhere, so I think that they married locally about 1600. There alot of Blunts in Roade, just a couple of miles north of Mixbury, so I tend to think that they came from that area. I would be interested to know how they came by their money as Richard left a 100 pound dowry for his youngets daughter in his will. I think that I will have to try and interpret manorial records-that will be a challenge!

Helen Olsen said on 21 Jan 2005: I am researching the family of John and Joan Strange who had children baptised in Mixbury between 1672 and 1683. A Richard Strange, who with wife Frances had children baptised there in the same period, is probably John's brother. A Richard Strange buried there in 1677 may be the father of John and Richard. I have not been able to find baptisms in Mixbury for John or Richard, but as the Mixbury baptisms only start in 1645, they may have been born before the records begin. I have also not found a marriage for either of them. I found the will of a Thomas Strange in Mixbury in the early 1600s. It is too early to be very helpful, but does suggest the family were in the parish quite early.

Has anyone found a marriage for a John Strange and Joan or Richard Strange and Frances in any of the nearby parishes?

Can anyone suggest some other 17th century sources that might be helpful? Are there, for example, surviving quarter sessions or other court records from this period that might mention this family? Any surviving manorial records for Mixbury?

This appeared on the STRANGE Surname Message Board on www.familyhistory.com "Hi my name is Shirley Beaton, my mom was born in Oxford in 1920 her name was STRANGE and her Dad was Fred STRANGE. I know I have a cousin named Micheal and he lived in Oxford he would be about 57 now. I have no idea where I just wanted to say hi, most of my relatives are in England so I will just keep looking."

Dave Beames said:
In my youth (a fair while ago) Messrs Strange's was a large and busy Oxford barber's shop. I think they were somewhere in the High Street, quite near Carfax, and possibly below street-level (in fact they were actually in Market Street - Stephanie Jenkins). They had a row of at least a dozen chairs, and they charged 9d for adults and 6d for boys.

"Strange and Son listed in Kelly's 1938 at 6 and 15 Market Street telephone number 2762 under the heading Hairdressers and Perfumers and also Ladies Hairdressers.

From Betty Judge <gjudge@bigpond.net.au> February 2007
I was researching my Cliffords (Mum's family) and found this:
Theophilus  Clifford b 1789 Bourton on water Glos son of William & Elizabeth (Greyhurst) Clifford,  married Sarah Goodall  b 1798 Oxford St Aldgate. They had  7 children,  the third a daughter is named MARY GOODALL STRANGE CLIFFORD  b 1824 Great Marlow Bucks.  Theophilus was a builder of bridges in the Thames area. One daughter is named Charlotte Suspensia Clifford b 1928  Marlow.  I wonder if she is named after the suspension bridge there. [Ed - I believe that Sarah Goodall was the sister of my Mary Goodall married above]

Independent Baptism: 1837 Mar 19 Harriett STRANGE d of Wm & Ann, No 25, Born Jan 14   From: Mary Beaumont
My 3 x great grandparents were William STRANGE and Ann WHITE, who married in Stokenchurch
29 October 1825 and arrived in Geelong, Victoria, Australia per "Berkshire" 3 October 1848
with their 7 children. William had been previously married to Sarah Hester or Nestor, with
whom he had 6 children (Martha and George being the only two who may have reached adulthood).
I would like to know what became of Martha & George, and I would dearly love to know where
William Strange was born(29 October 1786 somewhere in Oxfordshire) and his ancestry.
It is probable that William came from Turville in Buckinghamsire - Mike Strange   1841 census Church Street, Stokenchurch, OXF (ref H.O.107/883) William Strange 55 chairmaker Ann Strange 37 Caroline Strange 13 Edmund Strange 11 Jesse Strange 9 Hallin (sic) Strange 7 Harriot (sic) Strange 4 Jason Strange 1

From the wife of Peter Townsend (G6PMT{at}btinternet{dot}com): My grandfather, George STRANGE was born in Stokenchurch 11 Aug 1875. His father, also GEORGE, is described as a chair turner on the birth certificate; his mother was Martha Strange, formerly Bird. When Geoge Jnr. married in Setember 1898 George Snr. was described as a Chair Maker. From personal experience I know that my grandfather George had a younger brother Tom STRANGE (married to "Jinnie", formerly Anderson) and they had four sons. From Hi Pete and Jen Tranter (peteandjen{at}ripnet{dot}aunz{dot}com) 27 Mar 2005 I am researching the surname Dandridge and the surname Strange seems to pop up on a regular basis. I have an unwated death certificate for a Sophia Strange aged 80 years, widow of Abraham Strange, bricklayer. Sophia died on the 23rd January 1877 in Stokenchurch Oxon. The informant was a Mary Ann Strange, Daughter in Law. Happy to pass it on to anyone who can use it.

Beli (BeliLindt[at]gmail[dot]com said I'm related to many of the STRANGE chairmakers of High Wycombe and Stokenchurch. I'd love to hear from anyone else whose family is from the same area.

I have a brother Robert   Ed Hanson replied, "I do know how you fit into the Strainge family, because your grandfather Stanley and my mother were first cousins and always kept in close touch. I met Stan on several trips to San Diego, met your father once, and think may even have met you in the toddler stage. If you look at the Strange website page under Oxfordshire, you can see the baptismal record of your grandfather, Stanley Herbert Strainge at Warborough (the Herbert was in honour of his uncle, who was my grandfather). Going back one generation more, his father was William Edwin Strainge, and his baptismal record can be seen among the records for Benson, where the family lived for nearly 200 years.   Wardington (1566)   Warpsgrove   Waterperry (C 1539-1979, M 1538-1978, Bns 1757-1978, B 1539-1987) None by the name Strange/Strainge   Waterstock (1580)   Watlington (1635) (C 1635-1923; M 1635-1924; B 1635-1960),

From Jaqy STRANGE of Stokenchurch on 06-12 Nov 2004

Annie S (or Ann Sophia) Strange, daughter of William Henry Strange (b.1823 (25?) Watlington, Oxfordshire) and Mary Ann (b.1828 Stokenchurch, Oxfordshire) is my Great Great Grandmother. Annie was born in 1853 in Stokenchurch and had a younger sister, Elizabeth Ellen born in 1856 in Watlington. Annie married George Butler (b.1856 Radnage, Buckinghamshire) in 1877 in St Clement, Sheepscar, Leeds, West Yorkshire (The details of the marriage can be found at www.yorkshirebmd.org.uk). They had 2 children; Arthur b.1882 and Edith b.1887.

In the 1901 census they were living at 14 Willow Place, Headingley-with-Burley, Leeds and had Annie's younger sister Elizabeth living with them. Also George's occupation was Surveyor's Chairman. and Elizabeth Ellen was listed as an imbecile.

Arthur went on to marry Beatrice Skinner in 1908 in Leeds and they had 3 children including a daughter called Irene who married my father's father in 1933  I haven't yet discovered what happened to Edith.

As far as I know, William Henry's parents were Adam Strange and Sophia Baker but that's as far back as I can go at the moment.

I'm sure you must be related to my wife, who also is descended from Stranges of Watlington. However, her connection is with Thomas (her 7g-grandfather, making you probably somewhere around eighth cousins), who married Ann Beesley in 1661, and the records I have been able to find have huge gaps between then and the people you mention. I hope you have found material that will fill the void.

My STRANGEs are from Stokenchurch, Oxfordshire, but no William Henry; my line goes:
Felix STRANGE (1789-1866)
James STRANGE (1811-1889)
Jonah STRANGE (1854-1929)

Ed Hanson said on 13 Nov 2004
It looks like this family was originally from Long Wittenham and not the same one from the other Watlington family (from which Alan, Margaret Moore, and myself descend).  As you can see, there is one big supposition in generation four that the Adam Strange mentioned in his grandmother's will is the same one who married in 1783.

1.  Richard Strange of Long Wittenham, Berkshire (and probably married to Elizabeth who, from the MI, died as wife of Richard and was buried 17 Sep 1726 - Mike Strange's ancestors - see Long Wittenham)

2.  Adam Strange, son of Richard, bp at Long Wittenham 27 July 1684; bur there, 17 May 1752; m Elizabeth; Adam Strange & Elizabeth Woollus, m. at Long Wittenham, 11 Oct 1714.  Elizabeth Strange, bur at Long Wittenham 7 March 1770

Note: Little Hasely is a hamlet within the parish of Great Hasely about 4 miles south west of Thame and about 6 miles north east of Long Wittenham. Where Elizabeth's daughter Hannah and son Thomas christened as we have only the following baptisms at Long Wittenham relevant to Adam and Elizabeth (there is a possible burial of Thomas in 1765):
1715 Nov 26 Elizabeth STRANGE, dau Adam & Elizabeth (bur 1715/16 Feb 07)
1716/7 Jan 13  John STRANGE, son Adam & Elizabeth (probably died 1780 - from MI)
1718/9 Feb 24  Elizabeth STRANGE, dau Adam (2nd child Elizabeth)
1721/2 Feb 04  Anne STRAING, dau Adam
1725 Jul 11    Adam STRAIENG, son Adam (probably died 1769 - from MI)

Betty Judge observed: Anne  Straing daughter of Adam  bap 4 Feb 1721/2 Long Wittenham,  and  married as Anna Strange to Thomas Humphries of Hazeley after banns  at Long Wittenham  on 26 Dec 1745, could be one and the same Hannah Strange)

3.  Thomas Strange, was dead by 1769 when his mother made her will

4.  Adam Strange, minor in 1769, when mentioned in the will of his grandmother Elizabeth Strange.
He was perhaps the Adam Strange who married at Watlington on 7 Jan 1783 to Mary Goodwin. He was perhaps the Adam Strange, son of Thomas, who was mentioned as a minor in the will of his grandmother Elizabeth Strange.  There was one Adam Strange bur at Watlington, 6 April 1791 and another 10 June 1796.  Mary Goodwin was probably the Mary Strange buried at Watlington, 3 Dec 1818, age 55.

5  Adam, bp. Watlington, 10 Jan. 1790; bur at Stokenchurch, 30 Oct 1875, age 78; m at Watlington, 6 July 1823 Sophia Baker, bur at Stokenchurch, 27 Jan 1877, age 80.

I have a 1639 will of a Margaret Bould of Chimney, Bampton. In the will she is referring to her daughter Mary Strange, wife of William. Also her grandaughters Martha and Mary Strange. Do you have any information on where Mary, wife of William Strange was baptized, or where the marriage took place?

On a history page at http://tinyurl.com/zqv5p about a shop in Oxford's High Street, now occupied by "Jigsaw", I came across this reference:
No. 134 was rebuilt in 1790 by Richard Cox.  It is a Grade II listed building (ref. 1485/731), and its present design won a heritage award for good shop design in a conservation area. In 1772 a survey of every house in the city was taken in consequence of the Mileways Act of 1771. No. 134 was then in the occupation of a Mr Strange, and its frontage measured 6 yards 1 foot 4  inches.  Richard Cox, draper, had his business here from 1783, and in Jackson's Oxford Journal of 17 August 1790 there was a notice announcing that Richard Cox & Co would be operating from newly-built premises on the site. Cox moved gradually over into banking, and went into partnership with James & Robert Morrell; but Cox (who had three times been Mayor of Oxford) engaged in corrupt practices and fled bankrupt to Calais in 1833.

Betty Judge said:
It looks as though  my William Strange was the shop owner of  what is now "Jigsaw"
William Strange, (the elder) died c1786. (I think) with 3 William Stranges it is very confusing. When William Strange the elder made his will on 30 Nov 1781 he named his nephew William Strange b 1742 and Robert Godfrey as his executors., but when the will was probated in 1786 Godfrey was called the surviving Executor, and  the nephew William had died and been buried  4 aug1783 at All Saints Church Oxford.  In the will William the elder states he leaves, "......my ffreehold messuage or tenement and appurtances situate in the Parish of All Saints Oxford now in the occupation of my nephew William  Strange unto my sister Eleanor Collins and her assigns for and during the term of her natural life  and from and after her decease unto my said nephew William Strange and his assigns for and during the term of his natural like  and from and after  the decease of the surviver of them I give  and devise the said premises to William  Strange ( the son of my said nephew )his heirs and assigns for ever.  
The Nephew William Strange  b  1742  West Hanney  died 1783 Oxford buried 4 Aug 1783 All Saints Oxford., before his uncle died.  John the  elder  also  wrote a codicil in his own hand and spellings, no date, and had another executor  John Cock .  "I give the house to my nephew  **** William Strange But if he should dey Before he shall attaine  the age of twentyone or Dey without ishew Lafeley  (?Issue Lawfully)  Begotten  then the said house to ffrancis  Strange ^^^^ his ayers  or asins ."   ** I think he meant great nephew.

The great nephew William  Strange  bap  22 July 1772 All Saints Oxford married  Mary Jessop 10 Nov  1796 North Hinksey;  no children found.  William died 1800 in Oxford buried 21 Nov 1800 All Saints.
On 28th day of November 1800 Letters of Administration of all and singular the goods Chattels and Credits of William Strange late of the City of Oxford, China Man, deceased were granted to Mary Strange widow the Relict of the said Deceased,being first sworn duly to administer  (109.79) (Bishop of Oxfords  Probate Court  Oxford Record Office)

A Mary Strange  married by licence Joseph Holland  on august 1st 1804 All Saints Oxford, witnessed by  Mary Ward and James Lush.  Francis Strange b 1716  East Hanney died 1778 Lyford, William Strange the elders brother, whose son William was the nephew apprenticed.

From Stephanie Jenkins (owner of the web site showing the details of 134 High Street:
134 High Street is within All Saints parish, and All Hallows is just an alternative name for All Saints, so all that fits nicely.  Bailey's Western & Midland Directory, 1783 lists William Strange as a china and glass-man, but I can't find anything later than that.  That was the year Cox took over the shop, so did William Strange the younger die that year?

From Maria Thompson <maria-hazel[at]tiscali[dot]co[dot]uk> in April 2007
My husbands 3x great grandmother was Mary Ann Strange, baptism 1825 Feb 20 in Nettlebed, Oxon to Samuel (blacksmith) and Sarah Strange. I believe she may have been the granddaughter of James Strange and Martha Franklin. Samuel was bap in 1800 in Nettlebed according to information found on Pedigree Resource files on Familysearch.org. [Ed - The Pedigree entries are not based on extracted data from registers, indeed they do not say that Samuel was christened in Nettlebed, they say he was born here. This is almost certainly a guess based on his age at death and place of burial. Indeed the parish register records I have for Nettlebed are a complete record. I would try contacting the submitter and discuss source information: Bernice P POTTER, 2568 No. Valley View Drive Layton, Davis, Utah 84040. For Samuel's birth place there is he possibility of 25 Dec 1802 West Hanney, Berkshire mother Martha. I would be very cautious about this submitted Pedigree, if you go right to the top of it there is Thomas STRAUNGE it says born 1640 and 1660. In fact there is a baptism in Watlington: 1662 May 11 Thomas Straunge, son of Thomas & Anne but the Pedigree file says the son was called John! It even has the gross error of the marriage of Thomas STRAUNGE and Ann BEESLEY as 30 Sep 1961 instead of 1661!  Where does she get birth of Richard as being Wallingford? In Nettlebed there was a baptism:1810 Jul 29, Richard Strange, son of James & Martha and the only mention of a Henrietta in Benson is a burial:Henrietta STRAINGE, d Thomas & Hannah, bur 28 July 1806]

[Ed- Might this be the marriage of Samuel and Sarah in Henley on Thames? 1821 Mar 11Samuel STRANGE otp Bachelor to Sarah NEWPORT otp  spinster Witnesses: William ....... ? and Ann TURNER X.

There were no children to this couple in Henley.  This is still a possibility for Sarah's burial in Henley - extracted from my page on Henley]

Maria says: I believed that he had died before the census records began as I  have not been able to find either Samuel or Sarah in any of the  census.  Mary's age varied greatly between census' - 17 in 1841; 33 in 1851; 35 in1861; 50 in 1871; 59 in 1881; 63 in 1891 and 76 in 1901.

I have realised that there are actually 2 Mary Stranges within my husbands family tree!! I was working on one, and have now just come across the other, so I am going to have to look at that one as well now. His other line is Mary Strange married 1741 in Maulden, Beds to Thomas Willison bc1708 in Toddington.  I have found several Mary Stranges born Toddington, so will have to look at this further.

Betty Judged offered:
James Strange  b 7 Oct 1776 Nettlebed son of  Robert Strange and Mary Pocock, married Martha Franklin b 1778 Rotherfield Peppard, 17 Feb 1790 Rotherfield Peppard, they had 8 children including Samuel  STRANGE b 1800

Maria surprised us with:
I have just discovered a third line in my husbands tree which has a 'Strange' within it (this is now 3 of his 4 grandparents lines!!).  This time I have Hannah Strange b c1830 Halstead living in 1841 with what I believe is probably her mother and stepfather Thomas and Mary Warren, along with brothers George Strange age 15 and David Strange age 8.  In 1851 David becomes Moses David Strange age 18 b Halstead living with Thomas Warren in Halstead, whilst Mary is living elsewhere in Halstead age 53 b Earls Colne. I can't find any birth for Hannah to show who her father was.
