You're probably aware of the 'Ashmead' area of Gloucestershire which I assume to be the original 'seat' of the ancient Ashmeads.Ashmead Green and Ashmead House are on the modern Ordnance Survey map. (Try www.streetmap.co.uk).Near the villages of Cam and Uley. Not surprisingly, there are lots of Ashmead families in the Uley area over the centuries!
An older, 1889, map shows Ashmead Farm and Ashmead Covert as well. (www.old-maps.co.uk)
My own Ashmead in Gloucestershire is the Elizabeth Ashmeadwho married Joseph Merry in Bisley in 1667.
Seeking Elizabeth's birthdate and parents. Have various possibilities in the Cheltenham / North Nibley / Uley areas in Gloucestershire, but nothing definite. Any clues gratefully received![Joseph Merry came from Arlingham, on the banks of the Severn].
You sound as though you have a substantial genealogy already, but if there is anything you want me to search for or check at the Gloucestershire Record Office, let me know.I usually manage to get there about twice a year.
