    Default HORNE in Olney, Bucks.

    Is anyone connected to a HORNE family that lived in Olney during the 1800s?

    I have:

    1841 Census England Buckinghamshire Olney
    HO107/58/6/7
    East Side High Street

    HORNE
    James 35 Tailor Yes
    Elishia ( Alicia I assume ) 30 Yes
    Ann 14 Yes
    Samuel 13 Yes
    George 6 Yes
    Thomas 1 Yes


    and also:

    George Freeman Horne ch. 04 Jul 1835 Olney Bucks

    Parents: James Horne ch. 01 Jan 1805 Olney bucks
    Alicia Freeman b. 06 Aug 1806 Olney Bucks
    Married: 25 Dec 1826 Olney Bucks


    plus:

    1851 Census England Middlesex St Paul Covent Garden
    HO107/1511/17/26
    Bedford Lane

    FREEMAN
    Thomas Head Wid 64 Porter Bucks Onley
    George HORNE Nephew Unmarr 16 Gentleman's Page Bucks Onley


    Having googled Olney, I'm not getting much feel for the place as it might have been back then. It would be great to connect with someone who also relates to that area, and even better, someone who has the family in their research.

    Thanks,

    James.

    Have you looked at the Genuki site for Olney? In case you haven't here is the ulr https://met.open.ac.uk/genuki/big/eng...ney/Index.html

    This gives quite a bit of background that might give you more insight.

    Default Hornes in Olney

    Hi - my husband's GG Grandfather was from Olney - Joseph Horne, born about 1828 married Phillis Harris.

    Most of my research begins in the mid 1800's, and includes 8 generations. I don't have much about Joseph's ancestors.

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Hi Janice,

    Thanks for your message.

    I've just returned from a lengthy holiday hence the long delay in replying to you.

    My Horne research has been on behalf of a neighbour rather than for myself and she is 94 and starting to lose interest intermittently in her FH so I'm not sure I'll be doing much more. However, she may rally and want to get going again so its good to keep connections going. Maybe I can help you with something sometime. You can always reach me through - https://ourmissinglinks.proboards.com/index.cgi

    I'm actually in Scotland but from Canada.

    Nice hearing from you,

    James.
