The earliest known ancestor, Thomas KING was a blacksmith in the Oxfordshire village of Wendlebury.  His gt.grandson, Robert, was also a blacksmith, so it is probable that the two generations in between carried on the same trade.


Thomas’ son, Robert, moved to Bletchingdon, 3 miles from Wendlebury, and the family stayed there for three more generations.


Robert’s grandson, another Robert, became the blacksmith at Bletchingdon.  He fathered a child, Martha, by Susannah ROUSE in 1784, and married her two years later.


Martha took the name KING and married firstly a tailor who died of fever, and then a mason Stephen SOANES of Forest Hill
