From: Eddie Gartside 5/7 Oct 2002 My 6 times Great Grandmother, married John HALL in Shalstone on the 22nd July 1731. I believe that she was born in Mixbury 4/5/1712, and that her parents were William STRANGE and Frances [nee RICKETTS]. John was from a fairly well off farming family from Kirtlington.
Dr William Strange (MD Edin) born Shalstone 1816, [Sic. see his 1814 baptism above] but family moved to Brackley Northants soon after. President of British Medical Association c 1882 source: Midland Medical Miscellany vol. 1 no 10 - October 1882 p 153 biographical article and portrait picture.
From Heather Olsen 28 Feb 2003 Subject: John Shaw Strange and the Cato Street Conspiracy
I have recently corresponded with someone who is researching the John Shaw Strange who was transported to Australia in 1820 for his role in the Cato Street conspiracy. I have tentatively tied this John into the Shalstone, Buckinghamshire Strange family, but was wondering if anyone on the list has done any research on him?

From: Heather Olsen 18 Apr 2003 Subject:William Strange of Shalstone More details on various William Stranges in Shalstone: Parish records show: William Strange ye son of John & Mary Strange was baptized March ye 10th 1712 [1712/13-- HO] The account book of Henry Purefoy, lord of the mannor of Shalstone, indicates that in 1739, he paid 4 pence to William Strange, son of Goodman Shalstone Strange, for crying a sale of cattle. No sign of this Shalstone Strange in the parish records. While at Bath in 1742, Purefoy wrote two letters to his tenant, William Strange. Parish records: 1744 Ellenor the wife of Wm Strange was buried Feby 5th Affidavit Feby 12th The map of the graves in the churchyard indicates that a William Strange was buried in the grave next to Ellenor in 1745, but I did not find this in the burial records. The dates in this map are not terribly reliable. Children of William and Ann Strange baptized in Shalstone: William, bap. 31 May 1748 Richard bap. 25 Aug 1749 A letter written by Henry Purefoy 9 Apr 1750 references his former tenant Goodman William Strange, who had recently moved to Blagrove. Apparantly William had not paid the proper toll on the turnpike when going there. Ed adds: It looks like there must have been another William of Shalston who doesn't show up in the baptismal register. I would also guess that "Goodman Shalstone Strange" would mean Goodman Strange of Shalstone to distinguish him from another, although Purefoy does later refer to "Goodman William Strange".
