Re: Dafferns originating in England

In Reply to: Dafferns originating in England by Maura Daffern of 184

I was born in Cannock, Staffordshire in 1943, live in Yorkshire, England, and am progressing back through the family name.

I have data so far on the generations back to my great-great-grandfather Frederick, who married Ann Cashmore in Bickenhill Near Birmingham, 5th June 1843.

I have Warwickshire County records of births and marriages, surname Daffern (and corruptions), the earliest being the Christening on 10th April 1561 of Johanna, daughter of Edwardi Daferne, at Stratford on Avon.

Of my grandfather Walter's descendants, my three sons, Nicholas, Philip and Jonathan are the last carrying the family name forward.

In investegating further back, I shall attempt to make the link back to a Samuel Daffern of Leicestershire, who I am told married a grand-daughter of Oliver Cromwell.

Can anyone assist?
