    From the images on Ancestry - Bodicote 1563 -1752

    John Clifton married Elizabeth Jordan December 10th at ? 1732

    GENUKI comes up with Hornton or Holton if the first letter is an H

    Can anyone suggest anywhere it might be?

    Bodicote is just to the south of Banbury and Horton is a few miles to the north-west. It could also be Hempton which is due south of Bodicote. I'm sure it reads Helmton in the image

    At first I thought Halmton but now you said Helmton I agree judging by the "e" in December and the "a" married

    What about Helmdon in Northants? It's only 12 miles away.

    Interestingly Ancestry Northamptonshire records has a baptism for an Elizabeth Jordan in Helmdon 7th October 1705. Promising?.....

    Thank-you everyone :)

    It could well be Flook - if I can tie this couple to a George baptised 1750 and he to 'my' George buried in 1820 :headbang: - been looking forever, with countless others, for a birth for my man reputedly age 66 when he was buried.
