Notes: I had a particular interest in Israel Alder (born 1812, and who lived as an adult in Abingdon, St Helen’s). I spent ages trying to find out his mother and place of birth. I am pleased to say that the Drayton parish record shows he was born (illegitimately) to Martha Alder in Drayton, Oxfordshire. She married a few years later to Daniel Francis. Martha’s father was Thomas Alder who was convicted of killing his wife “during a quarrel” (noted in parish records). He received a sentence of one month’s imprisonment.
