I can help with the ancestry of Charles Howe Ivens (1859 - 1926)
He was the eldest son of John Ivens (1828-1923) and Catherine Howe, married 2nd December, 1836.
Charles emigrated to Canada with his cousin Charles Edmuns Ivens (1860 - 1935). Much of their story is in the document created by J F Wilson (which I have now transcribed and is available as a Word doc.)
Back to Charles' ancestors:
John Ivens was 9th of 11 children to Richard Ivens - [farmer] (1792-1865) and Mary Hitchcock (1793-1872). The story goes that they eloped on August 3rd, 1815.
Richard Ivens born in Wolfhampcote, later moved to Marsh GIbbon (Warwickshire)was 5th out of 9 children to William Ivens (1755-1830) of Grandborough, (Warks) and Elizabeth Masters - married 24 June 1782.
William in his turn was second child, but eldest son to William Ivens of Grandborough, Warks(1728-1785) and Elizabeth Allard (1732-1816). Married 30th November 1752.
This William Ivens is believed to be 4th child of Martin Iven (no 's') (1688-1771) of Harbury, then Napton and eventually Grandborough, Warks.
Martin is thought to be an elder son of Richard Iven of Harbury (circa 1660) and a plausible descendant of Richard Iven (3rd Feb 1566) of Harbury (the earliest record in Harbury). There is also an Ann Iven (5th July 1548) of Chesterton, Warks.
Much of this Ivens tree is now known, though I am discovering new leads all the time.
