View Full Version : Help!!

Hi all,
I have a branch that I just can't get my head around!
I'll give you what I have and then if anyone one wants to look/help I would appreciate it greatly :)

Thomas Shepherd (Sheapheard/Shephard(e)) b. 1696, Bampton, Oxfordshire ( https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=9841&h=172670348&ssrc=pt&tid=158924312&pid=262084637733&usePUB=true )
Ancestry hints say that Ferdinando Shepharde is his father b. 1641 Bampton ( https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=9841&h=940179&tid=&pid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=pzc3&_phstart=successSource ) who married Elizabeth Moulder in 1675 Bampton - however this is obviously after Thomas was born. Another tree has Ferdinando also marrying someone called Elizabeth Rawlins and has her as Thomas' mother but I cannot find a marriage for this?!
Ancestry then tells me that Ferdinando's father is also called Ferdinando Shephard but b. 1676 which is obviously wrong and I believe this is Thomas' brother?! There are no other hints when I say that this is not his father.
Looking at another tree I am now confused as to which BMD belongs to which Ferdinando as they have different dates to me ( https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/120414246/family?cfpid=260200560913&selnode=1&_phsrc=pzc11&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true )

His son Ferdinando administers.

It also says "Wee Alles Shepeard and William Shepearch doe freely geeve Consent that Fardenando Shepeard should admenester".
