Genealogical Tree

Oram Family Tree 1970

The above family tree was made by John Oram 1920-2007 as part of ‘The Oram Family Saga’ that John and his wife Daphne produced in 1970.

The information came from three main sources:

The first five generations were deduced from parish registers and so will always be subject to interpretation.  Nevertheless this part of the tree stands up pretty well to the usual checks as to the age of people when they marry, have offspring and die. Daphne, in her introduction to  ‘The Oram Family Saga’ gives a background to the research:

“Babs Fox had given us lots of photographs and a copy of the Family births and deaths ….. This information took us back to an Isaac Oram of Ditcheat.

[My brother-in-law Arthur]  sent us information that he and his father James had collected in Ditcheat in 1939 – where in the parish registers this Isaac Oram’s father was recorded as being “Isaac Oram of Castol Carry”

So to Castle Cary we went, and had an appointment with the very charming vicar there. He was new to the living but had found that some worthy in the 1930′s had card indexed all the local parish registers from Castle Cary, Ansford and the surrounding villages. Imagine our delight when in the section “O” was a thick wad of Orams! By hours of careful reasoning and cross checking we drew up the Tree right back to when dear Elizeus Oram married Elizabeth Heywarde in 1589 in the village of Ansford. We could go no further as we got to the time when parish registers were first started.”

The middle part is based on information Daphne received from various family sources.   This is the part of the tree that we are exploring and expanding in this site with the majority of the information coming via the internet.

The lower part, below the maps is based on information John and Daphne collected from relations.  The tree is remarkably accurate considering that Daphne, in the pre-internet era had to trace many of the relations by old fashioned hand written letters.  The members of this part of the tree  are the subjects of another website that we will make available later.
