The earliest known ancestor is William ROUSE of Bicester, probably born around 1680.  One of his sons, Jonathon, became a butcher at Kidlington

 

Jonathon married a widow Susannah STRINGER at Hampton Poyle in 1747, and one of their daughters, Susannah, had an illegitimate daughter Martha baptised at nearby Shipton-on-Cherwell in 1784.

 

Susannah married Robert KING, a blacksmith of Bletchingdon, two years later, and Martha was brought up as Martha KING in Bletchingdon

 

Martha married Stephen SOANES at Forest Hill in 1814

OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS

 

1)       B8   Origin of William bc1680.  Can the two William ROSE/ROSE families at Bicester be sorted?

 

2)       B7   Can it be proved that the widow Susannah STRINGER was formerly Susannah PEESLEY C1716 at Hampton Poyle?

 

3)       B6.  Baptism of Susannah ROUSE c1764.  Is she a daughter of Jonathon & Susannah of Kidlington?
