Wokingham, Berkshire, and Henley, Oxfordshire, England.

Our main area of Hale research is the Wokingham/Henley region of Berkshire and Oxfordshire, England.

We are searching for the father of John Hale, born c1700, from Henley Upon Thames, Oxfordshire, England, who married in 1729 in Wokingham, Berkshire, England. John moved to Wokingham from Henley-On-Thames upon his marriage. Below are two samples of John Hale's signature.

This is the signature of John Hale senior "from Henley". It comes from the marriage of Hannah Hale and Thomas Maurice in Wokingham on 22 December 1754.

This is another specimen of the signature of John Hale senior "from Henley". It comes from the Hurst settlement certificate of Thomas Withers and Mary (nee Hale) dated 3 May 1763.

We are also searching for two Hale girls named Mary Hale, born c1740, and Elizabeth Hale, born c1746, probably both daughters of the above John Hale. Follow the highlighted links above for a family tree and more information about these individuals.
