Kempsters in Burford, Oxfordshire, Engalnd

I'm looking for information and records Kempsters in Burford, England.
Trees on Ancestory show that I am descended from Christopher Kempster (1627-1715, an English master stonemason and architect who trained with Sir Christopher Wren, working on St Paul's Cathedral.

Jumping a generation or two forward is Thomas Kempster who was born in Burford, England probably around 1775. Need his birth and baptism record. He died 15Jun1804 in Worcester (have record).

He married Maris Smith on 17 Sep 1789 in Burford, England. I found the marriage record.

They had 9 children; the first 5 being born in Burford, Oxfordshire, England. I am looking for proof of the birthdates for all of these except Maria Jordan as I have located her birth and baptism record.

Maria Jordan Kempster b.31Jul1790; baptised 20Oct1790
Thomas Kempster b. 12Jun1792
Elizabeth Kempster b. 17Feb1794
Jordan Kempster b. 26Jul1795
John Kempster b. 27Jan1979

The next five children were all born in Worcester and I've located their information.

Maria Smith was born in 1766 in Burford, but I need her birth record.

According to the trees on Ancestory, stepping back a generation is boyoneofchristopherKempster b 25Mar1627; d. 12Aug1715 both in Burford.

Parents: John Kempster b. 1568; d. 21Oct1604 Burford
Edith b. 1566 and d. 1629

I'm looking for records to support this information as well.

If I'm lucky I'll find someone else researching this family.

Any information will be appreciated.
