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.

From Betty Judge, "When we were at Aston Tirrold village, and looking over the gravestones in Aston Upthorpe Church., there were some cottages opposite that had been converted into a house, the owner told us the cottages had been lived in by STRANGEs, and that earlier this year, there were other people from Australia searching the churchyard for STRANGEs. I wonder who that can be?"

Later (April 2004), from Linda Shoebridge "Betty Judge has just "discovered" me! Her husband Stan is 2nd cousin to my late father, Frederick Charles STRANGE. The family originated in Aston Tirrold,Berkshire.

From Mike STRANGE (not the webmaster but another one!)
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.

Their children were born at North Moreton where she was buried, the register quotes the date of burial as 7 Feb 1883, aged 86.

Liz says, "Some of my info duplicates what you already have, some of it adds to it. 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 STRANGE:
John STRANGE 1819
Jeremiah STRANGE 1821, m Mary ??
Robert STRANGE 1822-1822
George STRANGE 1824
Eleanor STRANGE 1828
Eliza STRANGE 1828
James STRANGE 1830  m Martha READ 25 Dec 1850
Edward STRANGE 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))

Culham - St Paul's

It is both a parish and a village located 3½ miles south west of Oxford. 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.

1861 Berkshire Gazetteer for Sulhampstead Berks
W.J. STRANGE Farmer Sulhampstead

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.

On the IGI the only STRANGE at Sunningwell, listed is:

NOTE that this transcription covers only a brief period
(C 1813-1842, M 1813-1837, B 1741-1842)
None by the name of STRANGE/Strainge

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:
Eli David STRANGE was my great grandfather,he had two children, Belinda Rose(my grandmother) and Michael. They are all buried in Sunningwell churchyard

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.

West Hanney Church Monumental Inscription
"Here lieth the body of Sarah the wife of William Straing and daughter of Thomas and Mary Woodward who died Nov ye--- 1774 ? aged 80 years"

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.

Betty Judge has added:

From: Margaret STRANGE

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 as both a document file and a GED file.  The document includes the 1841 Census for Wootton and much more! All in one ZIP file.
9. Families
Amos STRANGE, son of John, labourer and Sarah, wrote his name as STRAINGE in his family bible that is owned by the parents of Barry STRANGE; the bible is inscribed:
"MARY ELIZABETH STRANGE a gift from her affectionate husband, on 5th April 1875"  It has pages with details of their childrens B,D,M's. Amos married Mary Elizabeth PUTT in St Martin's Church, Oxford, on 27 September 1863.  Unfortunately not all of the children's details are legible so there is a full transcription below the five images from the bible.

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".
