Hi LYn, Thanks again for helping.You have been brilliant!!! I am Very interested in Valentine! There is a Valentine Gardner, first born Son of William Gardner, and Alice of Clifton b 1731 registered Deddington records whom we thought could be Alice ward of Hanwell?
I think this could be connected? as this could be the why William named his first son Valentine? which is an unusual name.and would make sense If sennior Valentine, is wiliams father? (it had struck me as an odd name choice for our family as they are all Richard's John's Robert's william's Thomas'es etc) The marriage age is much more accurate as well. I have disks BAnbury district vol 3 and Woodstock Vol 2 can you tell me if there are others from this line on the records? and what disk i'll need to order please as there are quite a few. Many thanks again lyn best wishes Julia
