KIRBY <1800 Fritwell, Upper Heyford, Islip, Somerton

Notes: My Great Grandmother is Maude Louise Kirby of Upper Heyford, 1876-1974 (d. Los Angeles, CA USA), my main "Kirby search" is of Thomas Kirby's patriarchal line (b. Islip 1845-1902 d. Wyoming USA), who married into another Oxfordshire family line via Mary Acocks of Acocks Green 1852-1936 (d. Utah). The Acocks family I can trace fairly well, but not the Kirby family. I have been able to trace back Thomas Kirby's male elders to a Jeremiah Kirby born in 1756 in Somerton, but that is all that's said, and that's as far back as I can get.
