WOW....you have been busy bees.:eek::2fun:

Ok, here's what I've found so far in Bucks.

James Wingrove marries Sophia Cox, 8 Mar 1845 @ St Mary's, High Wycombe. (CORRECTED from 1848. Duuuh.!!).???

Sophia Wingrove marries Thomas Chilton, 1848, Wycombe dist.(This marriage does not show in BucksFHS Church Finder)......which means it would be a Registry office/Registrar event.

Thomas Chilton was born Amersham, and not Ludgershall, like most other trees.:rolleyes:

Sophia/Sophy Cox c1814. Iver, Bucks. Parents were Thomas & Elizabeth Cox.

I'm waiting on the marriage to James Wingrove to confirm the fathers names. Also his baptism and possible burial, to confirm.


Thanks a lot for all this, just hope it all pans out, wel......most of it will, I suspect.

Thanks MLT, for getting me on this trail, and for the rest of you carrying on the journey.:)
