Notes: My Grandfather, James Edward Prew was born in Cropredy in 1890 and through my research I have discovered that the Prew family are linked to many families that lived in and around Cropredy. I've also discovered that a branch of the Cropredy Prew's settled in Bloxham for some time, later moving further south to Charlbury. His mother was Elizabeth Simson, born in 1860 and I'm keen to learn more about the Simson family who resided just across the Oxfordshire border in King's Sutton. My Grandmother, Hannah Stevens was born in Barford St John in 1890. Her mother was Emily Murrey (a family of stonemasons). My Grandmother's early life appears to have been exceptionally hard; loss of siblings at an early age and a father, Albert who seemingly abandoned his disabled wife and children, disappears without a trace.
