My name is Dawn and my grandma was a Hartwell descended from James Hartwell who married Sarah Hubbocks in Brill, daughter of Robert Hubbocks and his wife Ann Farey. The Hubbocks' seem to have been an old Brill family and I've traced Robert Hubbocks family line back to the 17th Century although I've not found any info about his wife at all other than their marriage in Grendon Underwood. James Hartwell died in 1844 in Brill . Jack Hartwell of Hartwells Barn and the Pheasant is connected as is George Hartwell who was landlord of the Swan as well as being a letter carrier/ postman. My descent is James Hartwell and Sarah Hubbocks - Thomas Hartwell and Elizabeth Colson (daughter of Henry Colson and Lucy Prior) - Sidney Charles Hartwell and Drusilla Chell (although by then the family had moved into Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire more or less following the pits). My Grandma Elsie Annie Hartwell was their daughter and she married Albert Rayner in 1912. I live in Doncaster so it's a bit of a trek for me to get to Buckinghamshire!
What I'm hoping is that people might have old pictures that they'd be happy to share please (for my own personal use only) of Brill and Oakley and also perhaps of the Swan, the Pheasant and Hartwells Barn . The family lived at various times on the Common and Windmill Street. Also if anyone knows anything of the Hartwells, the Colsons, the Hubbocks' and perhaps even the Fareys I'd love to hear.
I don't want my family history to be just a list of names and dates so I do hope someone can help. Thank you and sorry this is such a long post!
