  1. I have an earlier Ogborne at Thornbury who was also a Baker.
    He was William with a wife named Joane
    His parents were John Ogborne and Elizabeth Wheeler
    Johns parents were Thomas and Bridget
    Thomas’s Father another Thomas
    All originating at Thornbury
    I suspect that William (D1690) is part of this line

    1. Thanks for the information on Thornbury Ogbornes which I’ll check against the info I have. On Ancestry.com I have created a family tree for Thornbury Ogbornes with a limited amount of people on it. The earliest I have is Thomas born 1530
