I am wanting to know Want the Relationship between Eleanor Forster of Bicester market end. Her will / prob 13 October 1758 and Francis Penrose of Bicester market end is ? I am sure I have seen her name somewhere before and have looked on Ancestry.com but haven't found any clues as of yet. The only Connections to any Francis Penrose's in my tree to any Eleanor's are the following: Elinor Painter m Francis Penrose b 1684. Their daughter Eleanor Penrose m John Stephens / Stevens. Their son Francis Penrose b 1720? m Jane Potter daug of Thomas Potter. In turn Francis and Jane's daug Elinor Penrose m Edward Lockyer. Their son Francis Penrose b 1743 m Sarah Gough. At first glance it would appear that Francis Penrose of Bicester end market would be Eleanor Forster's brother but he is only listed in the brief transcription of the will as an executor etc and not as a relation, though there is a Jane Penrose listed as a niece in the will. The following people are listed as being in the will of Mrs Eleanor Forster of Bicester market end, probated on 13 October,1758:
