Title DAY BOOKS OF THOMAS GROVES AND FAMILY, STONEMASONS OF MILTON-UNDER-WYCHWOOD
Date 1836-1886
Level Collection
Reference B117
Description The history of these documents is
unclear. In early 1993, they and
B/118 were found at County Hall with
part of Acc. 292 (part of the Fane
Papers, now catalogued as E4), but they
bore no relation to this collection at
all. It was therefore thought that at
some stage they had been attached to the
collection in error. However, there was
no indication of when or from where they
might have arrived at Oxfordshire
Archives. It was therefore decided to
catalogue them by themselves.

Thomas Groves and his family worked as
stonemasons in the area around Milton-
under-Wychwood. Several mid-century
Directories for Oxfordshire record
members of the family being based there,
and the day books themselves record work
carried out in the west of the county,
and even in west Gloucestershire,
especially Bledington.

Catalogued in August 1994 by Robin
Darwall-Smith.
