1821 May 13 Henry STRANGE s of John & Mary, Bricklayer (born 13 Apr1821) Mona Strange 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.

1835 Aug 09 Jane Letitia Ann STRANGE d of William & Letitia, Gardener, Henley 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.

1865 Aug 13 Arthur Edward STRANGE s of Richard and Sarah. Probably the Arthur who marries in 1888 below, he said he was born in Henley in the 1901 census - he seems to have dropped "Edward" for both events.

Marriage Banns Registers of St Mary's Parish Church - Henley Marriage Banns Register 1785-1844 1821 Feb 11/18 Samuel Strange otp bachelor to Sarah Newport otp spinster. Married 11 Mar 1821
Marriage Registers of St Mary's Parish Church - Henley Marriage Register Books 1558-1653, 1653-1721, 1737-1753, 1754-1792, 1792-1812, 1813-1843, 1837-1870, 1870 to 1916, 1916 to 1976 (X indicates signed by marking with a cross) 1697 Oct 24 John STRANGE to Elizabeth WHITE

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 was John Strange, fter 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).

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.

1827 Sep 11 John Strange, widower, of Henley, co. Oxford & Hancock, Amy, widow,by licence. 1841 Jan 29 John Strange 21 (born 1819) Son of William the Saddler 1845 Feb 14 John Strange 67(born 1778) John (Jnr 2). Was here in 1841. We have a copy of the death certificate. My 4th GGF. 1858 Mar 20 Sarah Strange 60 (born c1798) The 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." One might surmise from this that George Frederick was Sarah's youngest stepson.

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.
