Benjamin Ives. Newspaper articles.

In Ireland, but from Bucks.
Could some kind soul search for newspapers regarding this name. Anything at all, from the 1800's(or earlier, if possible), to the 1900's, in Buckinghamshire or Oxfordshire.

There is a link with this name between the two counties, but so far I've drawn a blank to prove it.

There are several Benjamin Ives in the hunt, from births ranging from 1720's to the mid 1900's.

Buckinghamshire Towns and villages include High Wycome, Chipping Wycombe, West Wycombe, Great Missenden, Hughenden, Towersey, Kingsey, Radnage, Colnbrook, Princes Risborough, but there may be others.

Oxfordshire Towns and villages are Thame, Sydenham, Stokenchurch, Chinnor and Emmington, and again, there maybe others.

I have been trying to connect the Oxfordshire Ives to the Buckinghamshire Ives, but not a sniff of a certain connection.

The Ives mob, in the very late 1600's and early 1700's, and beyond, had land and farms in both counties, but unable to fix an exact link between the two families.

Benjamin Ives is a name that carries across the the two counties, but there other names also, but this one stands out.

I have so much info on all these Benjamin Ives's, but can't connect the two families. It's there, I know it is, but can't prove it, as yet.

Ages aren't important, it's mostly locations, property and dates of newspapers I need.

I know it's asking a lot, but anything that may give me a clue will help, no matter how small.

Please PM(Private message) me for my email address to send anything that's found. unless it don't breach copyright rules, then post it here.

Thanks folks.:)
