GIBBS 20c Oxford
TURNER 20c Oxford

Notes: My mother was Cynthia Mary TURNER (nee GIBBS), later also known as Cynthia Mary CONWAY-TURNER. She was born in 1913 in Abingdon. Her father, my maternal grandfather, was Arthur Albert GIBBS b. 1882 in Oxford. He was a son of the well-known Oxford manufacturing confectioner, Frederick William GIBBS, b, 1855 in Deddington, Oxfordshire. At the time of her marriage at St. Michael's Church, Oxford, in January 1935, my mother was living at home with her father at 69, Howard Street, Oxford. She married into an Oxford TURNER family who were at one time living in Ifflley Road, Oxford, and were connected with the Oxford Educational Establishment, an Oxford newspaper and Oxfordshire Minor Counties cricket. I am interested in making contact with members of the TURNER and CONWAY-TURNER families.
