The Conn family of Buckinghamshire

The Conn family of Buckinghamshire.

(including Bedfordshire)

These Buckinghamshire families are situated in the far north east of the county, right up against the boundary with Bedfordshire. The Bedford families are also next to the county boundary, and the close proximity of all of these families would suggest a common ancestor. Because only the IGI records are available, family trees are difficult to make.

The earliest family appears to be in Bedfordshire in about 1607. Because Geoffrey - an uncommon name - appears in all of the following records, I have assumed that they are from the same family.
