I’d like to introduce…

Edward George "Ted" Turner

Edward George Turner, known affectionately to his family and friends as Ted, was a kind hearted, gregarious, right jolly English gent, loved by all who knew him. He was born on the 27th of June 1911 at Blake Cottage, Horn Street in Winslow, Buckinghamshire, where his father was employed as head groom to Mr Gosling of Blake House.

And His Lovely Wife…


Miss Phyllis Mary Collins, daughter of William Collins, publican of the George Inn in Winslow, which is where Ted met her one fateful day in the 1930s

I wrote about the Turners in this post, and this is an expansion of that. This is a summary of the Turner surnames found, mainly, in St. Peter’s (Caversham) parish register transcriptions.[[1]Caversham, Emmer Green, Henley,Kidmore are situated in Oxfordshire. Other counties are indicated.

Below is my direct line from John Turner to,  Henry, my 2nd great grandfather. You’ll find more details here: Henry & Charles Turner and John Turner of Emmer Green. More information about John Turner’s family can be found here: John Turner’s Children and William Turner. Most of this has been taken from published parish transcripts. Please, if you are incorporating any of this data into your own trees, check the original entries in the parish records for any transcription errors or additional information, as I will be doing also.
