I would be interested to know if you have more information on your G grandfather's brother Francis Arthur. I believe he could be my G grandfather.

I don't have much info on my family yet and came to a dead end with Francis Arthur.

FRANCIS ARTHUR (Journeyman Stonemason) my G grandfather
1st wife: name unknown
Children: ?
2nd wife: Jane SIMPSON (from Swinbrook, Oxon)
Children: WALTER (my grandfather) b: 1888 d: 1969
Possibly also Harry, Christy F., Arthur, Fred, Alan, Frederick, Alice (none confirmed)

Wife: Mary Ann Pickering HERBERT
Children: Sheilah b:1921 d:1981, Thomas Herbert b:1924 d:1973, PETER ALAN (my father) b:1927

Apparently my Benfields also originate from the Heythrop, Enstone, Chipping Norton area so there could well be a connection here.

If you can help me in any way, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
