My interest centres on:
Samuel Bird who brought up his family in Everdon but died in Preston Capes in1730. He was referred to as a “gentleman” leaving several hundred pounds in his will so presumably lived in one of the larger houses.
William Wait who was born in Preston Capes in1820 and although referred to as a farmer at his marriage in 1842 was subsequently referred to as an agricultural labourer and moved to Whilton.
William Montgomery, who was christened in Fawsley in 1765, lived in Preston Capes around 1805 and ended up farming at White Hall at Heyford where he died in 1830.
Any information on these families would be appreciated:
