Help Wanted


Ruth Noyes, Stafford

I have traced my SILVESTER ancestors back to a marriage in 1704, but for two years have made no more progress. Henry SILVESTER of Hinton Waldrist married Alice BLANDERS of Sunningwell by licence at St. Mary Magdalene, Oxford on December 26,1704. The couple had two children in Sunningwell where Henry was buried in 1731 after Alice had predeceased him. There is no trace of Henry in Hinton Waldrist or a wide swathe of surrounding parishes, nor can I find a single BLANDERS family in the region. A contemporary Henry SILVESTER in Oxford appears to be unrelated but there were SILVESTERs marrying in Abingdon in the late seventeenth century. Any help in tracing the origin of Henry and Alice would be appreciated.
