Thanks for your notes. I wont bother with the film on Culham. That
brings me back to another thought,ie Thomas was born in Cuddesdon/Denton. I
know this sounds like I'm going in circles, but bare with me for a minute.
Thomas and Mary were married in Cuddesdon in 1736, we know. Their first
child Charles also born in Cuddesdon in 1736, we know. We don't know where
Mary SLAUGHTER was born. We have been assuming Cuddesdon. If we traced the
SLAUGHTER family we may pick up a clue on Thomas. This maybe stating the
obvious,but the obvious may provide an answer. Further, we know Mary was
buried 9/10/1795 in Cuddesdon but we do not have a death for Thomas. Also,
we all understand Thomas was a farm labourer like his descendent sons, etc.
Farm labourers, I understand, were either itinerant workers or worked for
one landowner. The major farms were the 'Manor Farm' and 'Denton House'.
Perhaps records of the Abby (if any still exist) or those of the Sir
John Gardiner family or the poor-rate documents need to be examined. Perhaps
any remaining tithes records may throw up a clue.
I will have another look at the LDS films on Cuddesdon.
I wonder if there are still records at the Abbey or Manor Farm that have
not been filmed or transcribed???
Having said all that, I have not dismissed the possibility that Thomas
migrated from Wiltshire. All these imponderables are giving me a
