Notes: We are researching 3 missing generations of my family (Allen) from Canon William Allen of Magdalen College Oxford, Custos College Vicars Choral abt. 1610 to 1691 (settled Hereford) and his father given in the CCED as Edward of Ducklington abt.1586 to Secular Canon Thomas of Pembroke and Corpus Christi Cambridge abt. 1495. It seems Thomas's children moved to Oxford in preference (long story of Catholic/Protestant divisions).

Notes: I am trying to trace the ancestors of Charles Fortnum who lived in Oxfordshire during the 1700s. Potentially he is my 5xGGF and I would like to be able to answer the question: Are you related to Fortnum and Mason? I have done some research into William Fortnum, who founded the business during Queen Anne's reign and do not think I am a direct descendant. However, Charles is a common forename in William's family but unusual for Oxfordshire for that time period.

Notes: My wife is Katie Whitehead of Abingdon, all of the above surnames are direct ancestors. I have traced the Whiteheads back to a George Alder from early 1700's. They appear to have inhabited Sutton Courtenay for at least 200 years as agricultural labourers. I am happy to share my information. I wish to learn more about where they lived, and any connections that exist pre-1750. I am also interested in the Alder family tree. I have traced her ancestry back to a John Alder and Hannah Allen in the early 1800s.
