Hi, I am researching my Watson roots in Helmdon and as a result I have a connection to the Gascoignes. John Watson (c1737 to 1800) born in Whitfield (near Helmdon) married Ann Gascoyne (Sep 13 1735 to about Dec 3 1780) born and died in Whitfield as well as marrying John there on Oct 23 1762.Ann was dau of Richard Gascoigne and Ann. The latter certainly died in Whitfield She was one of a number of children born in Whitfield. I descend from one son of John and Ann, William, who married a lady from Helmdon and then settled in Helmdon. I am trying to piece together the Watson and Gascoigne family history back in time but there seem to be gaps which I have failed to bridge. Have you had any more success?
