PAXFORD >1750 Witney, Chipping Norton
STONE 1770 -1860 Stonesfield

Notes: My family has a Romani / Gypsy ancestry - I would like to find out if the Paxfords in the Idbury / Witney /Woodstock area of Oxfordshire were Romani . My Great Grandmother was Mary Ann Paxford . b.1854 Idbury ( I think ) I can't find her in the '61 or '71 census. She married my Great Grandfather , Francis G. Smith in 1874 , I think in Stonesfield or Woodstock. I appreciate any help you may have. Penelope Smith
