Notes: My second great grandfather, Henry Drinkwater, was born in Oxfordshire, we believe Tackley, c.1848. His mother Rose Drinkwater died in Headington (at the poorhouse) in 1853. He moved to New Zealand, had ten children with wife Sarah (nee Franklin), and we have a lot of family & records of his life here but not a lot of information about his life prior. No clue who his father was either. Both my grandfather (who is 90yo) and I have tested recently with ancestryDNA in the hopes to solve that mystery. Thought it's time we learn to research records in Oxfordshire. DNA has confirmed Rose Drinkwater's parents were George and Elizabeth (nee Travis) Drinkwater. Thought there might also be a few people 'back there' wondering where their New Zealand relatives have come from.
