"BURFORD, a parish in the hundred of Overs, in the county of Salop, 1 mile to the W. of Tenbury, 5 miles from Wooferton railway station, and 8½ miles from Ludlow. It is situated on the confines of Worcestershire, on the banks of the river Teme, near the Shrewsbury and Hereford railway, and contains the townships of Boraston, Burford, Greet, Nash, Stoke, Tilsop, Weston, Whatmore, and Whitton. It was formerly a market town under a grant obtained from Henry III. The parish is crossed by the Kington canal, and is partly laid out in hop-grounds."
[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868)
 Ludlow is 20 miles SW of Barrow

Research Notes

The above family sequence is all from LDS searches, and looks probable.
The Anne Hill marriage looks right - the first child we know of is born twelve months later. At her marriage she said of Tenbury, but that is understandable - Burford is very small and only a mile away from the larger town
One intriguing note
There is a parish register entry on Ancestry.com
06 Jun 1679 Anne, supposed daughter Edward Hill and Susanna Harries, baptised
another one
John Hitchcox, yeoman, buried 26 Aug 1705, and his son-in-law Edward Hill is to pay 0 4 0
This probably gives us Eward's mother's surname but I have not been able to do anything with it
there are three John Hitchcox born in Worfield, about ten miles W of Barrow who could be him, but no help?


Lots of excellent stuff was received from Geoff Onslow and others in the early 90s.. Jude Warner and Annette Beresford have added much in 2006.. Jude pointed me to Anne Hill
