OXENHAM FAMILY – DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS OXENHAM born c 1635 and who married Mary Slowly in Porlock Somerset England in 29 January 1656/57. My father, Anthony Edward Oxenham DOB: 11 Nov 1907, gave me some old papers before he died in 1985 which refer to a church (St Andrew's) memorial in the South Zeal area stating that it was erected by Elizabeth Hoare (nee Elizabeth Oxenham born c 1736, daughter of William Oxenham of Oxenham) in honour of Dame Maria Palmer Hoare who I think was Elizabeth's daughter. I am trying to establish if my family (the Warwick Qld Australian Oxenhams who are descendants of THOMAS OXENHAM and later John Oxenham born 1821, solicitor from Taunton Somerset England and who died in Warwick Qld in 1874 are also descendants of the Oxenhams from South Zeal Devon UK and who appear to be associated with the OXENHAM ARMS (built in 12 century) in South Zeal Devon UK and possibly Captain John Oxenham born c 1540.
Any help would be most welcome. Michael A Oxenham DOB 1945 Brisbane Australia
