His father James (b1819) married Katherine Parish at Cottisford 1846 (she was b1819 in Evenley).James's father George (b1789) married a Elizabeth Hitchcock (b1796) also at Cottisford in 1815.

Notes: Between 1851 and 1861, the branch of the HITCHCOCK family living in Henley (originally from Waddesdon, Bucks) changed their name to either HISCOCK or HEATH. Reason unknown. I am researching the family of James FROUD, the timber merchants from Lower Assenden. In the 1851 census, the FROUDs, HEATHs and HITCHCOCKs were all living in the Northfield End area of Henley.

CURTIS Any Great Bourton and surrounding area OXF

Notes: Have traced back to 1800 William Curtis born 1800 give or take 2 years in Little Bourton he married Elizabeth Hazelwood of Wroxton. Most of the Curtis families seemed to have remained in the area until around 1900 when some moved to Warwickshire and Birmingham areas. The Neville family seem to be prevalent by marriage and Lucy Neville married a Curtis but died in Littlemore Asylum. Any one who knows anything else or can point me in the direction of William Curtis's parents. William was an agricultural worker so may have had parents who moved to the county for work.
