YOUNG 1600-1700 Wendlebury

Notes: Looking for information on the YOUNG family located around Wendlebury in the 17th century. Yeoman farmers linked to Thomas YOUNG, circa 1630. So far I have found some wills and testaments from William YOUNG and Thomas YOUNG taking me back as far as the 1630's in the Oxfordshire records, but can't find any mention of what happened to the family in the civil war or further back than 1630. I imagine that the land holding was not very substantial but enough to be worth several hundred pounds at this time as one of the bequests was valued at 100. This might therefore be enough to find linkages to taxes of some description either in Bicester, Wendlebury or Kirklington. Anyway, any information would be interesting as I have come to an impasse.
