I note the request for assistance from Ruth Noyes of
Stafford concerning Henry Silvester and Alice Blanders in the March,
2001 issue of the Berkshire Family Historian. I have a tree which goes
back from the 1880s to this couple.
I believe that Henry was born at Sunningwell c.1679. I
have no information about a Hinton Waldrist connection. I have nothing
about the antecedents of this couple but can offer further research
about their son John (born 1765 at Sunningwell) who married Mary Rogers
(born 1707 Wytham). That Rogers branch goes back through father William
(born 1671 Wytham) and his wife Mary(?) born c.1707 at Wytham and his
father Robert Rogers (born 1639 also at Wytham) and his wife Martha (?)
born 1649 at Wytham. This Rogers branch might be interesting to Ruth
Noyes. I, too, would be interested in the parents of either Henry
Silvester (1679-1731) or Alice Blanders (1683-1721).
