Tour of

Hi - my name is Sarah and I have been researching my family history since 1995.

My main family line is Henson and they lived on the North Buckinghamshire and South Northamptonshire borders in the villages of Passenham, Puxley, Deanshanger and probably Potterspury. So far I have managed to trace them back to around 1790 and have made lots of new friends and found many distant relatives on the way.

I am also tracing my other family lines which include the Meakins from Stony Stratford, Bucks. I believe some of my Meakins family may have come from Yardley Gobion at some pointo but I'm still getting there..

I'm also tracing the Goodmans who were originally from Blunham in Bedfordshire and later branches of the family settled in New Bradwell and Newport Pagnell in Bucks.

Also included in my research are the Buckinghamshire North Crawley Agers, the Coltons from Nash, Bucks and the Bennetts and Reynolds from Beachampton, Bucks.

My maternal family tree includes the Bargus/Barguss family from Oxfordshire and I am beginning to believe that ALL the Barguss in England are related through those Oxfordshire beginnings!

Other intriguing lines are the Smith and Loveridge Romanies or Gypsies who moved around LOTS but seemed to visit Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire in particular.

If you have any connection with my family line or can help me in anyway I would be delighted to hear from you.

Griffiths USA?..

I'm looking for descendants of Kezia Colton, born ~ 1886 in North Bucks and married William Griffiths, also born ~ 1886. They emigrated, possibly to California in the 1900's.

The photo below was taken in Feb 1967 of 'Uncle Bill' (William Griffiths?), Dorothy and the teenager, Cheryl. I also have pictures of a teenage boy called Ken.

Griffiths in the States?
Who are they - can you help?
