Thankyou very much for looking this up for me I do Have the disk for Deddington, but thought i may well need to buy another.
Thanks for the tip about marriage register i'll look in to that. I think the Marriage entry for William and Alice appears interesting, as you say an Alis Ward, was registered as being baptised 1704 this would be too early for William b 1714/5
There are no deaths, i can see recorded for a Wiliam Gardner, until 1777 It could be this is the son of Richard and Mary?
There are no real records of Gardner's, in Deddington until 1709 with the birth of Richard s Richard and Mary I cant find a marriage entry for them? I would think they would have married abt 1708, no mention where they are from? no parish given?
The Gardner name is very sporadic before this so i cant link anyone else together? There are entries for Garner could this be a early spelling variation of this surname?
I am thinking this is about as far as I can go back now.
But i have enjoyed the journey. Most of this line has stayed around the Banbury and London areas only my part of the tree are Northeners!
Another big Thankyou! Lyn, and to everyone else out there who have been such a great help.
Best wishes Julia
