  3. The Giles name in Cricklade St Sampson

    I have traced the Giles branch of my family tree to Cricklade St Sampson and have managed to work out the identities of a few of them who belong to my family tree. What I am wondering is whether all of the people with the surname Giles in Cricklade St Sampson are likely to be related?
