|About Orpwoods of Bampton
Please sign in to see more.
Orpwoods have lived in Bampton (Oxfordshire) for at least 500 years. In fact many of the other Orpwood families that have been researched trace their origins back to Bampton and a few nearby villages. Sadly perhaps, none of their descendents are still in Bampton - they are found all over the country and abroad. They are one of about 8 major families of Orpwoods all originating in this part of England and the trees of the other families are on other Tribal Pages sites. They are being named according to their particular place of origin and are listed below under Useful Links. Others will be added soon. Visitors having Orpwood ancestors or relatives will need to check each of the sites to discover where their own connections are. Corrections and additions are always welcome. This tree is one part of a larger one-name study of all the Orpwoods in the world. The one-name study is dedicated to the memory of two Orpwoods whose genealogical efforts provided both information and inspiration to my own: Roy Orpwood of Swansea (d. 2004) and Michael Orpwood of Sydney, NSW (d. 2005).
