Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire, England.

Bedford was founded at a ford on the River Great Ouse, and is thought to have been the burial place of Offa of Mercia. Bedford Castle was built by Henry I, although it was destroyed in 1224. Bedford was granted borough status in 1165 and has been represented in Parliament since 1265. It is well known for its large population of Italian descent.

This tree was pulled together after a fellow GoONS member sent me a notice from the Befordshire Times & Citizen (5th Jan 2012). This was a while ago, but I had not had time to process it. I am sure the family is linked to one of my other Befordshire trees. Unfortunately, as there were two GAMMONS/WILES marriages in Befordshire at the same time, I need more information about which family id which to proceed further. Maybe the 1939 register will help me?
