Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with

FLUX: I am trying to establish a link with members of the various Flux families living along or near the south coast of England where the name is fairly popular.

The link needs to be with the Oxfordshire villages of Filkins, Langford, Lechlade and Farringdon with such names as James Flux and Anne Davis who married in 1779, their children Elizabeth and Richard; James Flux who married Mary Garlick in 1853 and John Flux who married Emma Baker in 1877.

Appropriate Oxfordshire records from 1780 cannot be found but I feel sure there must be Flux family historians in your area trying to establish the link but in their case it is from the south towards Oxfordshire.

I would very much appreciate it if they would contact me at or 01484-716280.
