Stan Cook, who lives in Quainton, Buckinghamshire UK recently wrote to me about his village web site http://www.quainton.net
"I have over the years since 1985 been involved in researching the family history of many people with origins in Quainton. This included my transcriptions of the Parish Registers which were published by the Village Society. I have also provided various people in the Village with extracts from the 1841, 1851, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census records. My 1901 census index was completed in January 2002 and although all my paper copies have now gone, I still have my master copy and a copy on disk."
From previous work that I have done I am aware that we have at least one Member, in the USA who has ancestors originally living in Quainton. I was quite surprised to find that the President of my local group, The West Surrey Family History Society, Ray Anstiss, has an ancestor, Elizabeth Anstiss, who married John Bunting on the 12th July 1787 in Quainton.
Also other documentation I have used at The Society of Genealogists is a copy of a book entitled "Churchwardens Book 1668-1975", which was presented by Stan so you can understand that he is quite an authority on the village records.The SoG also has a copy of "The Overseers Book, 1675-1925" and "The Enclosure Map of Quainton 1841".
