Elizabeth Lankshear  (1755 - ) see 1798 Will of Mary Lankshear of Witney reports Elizabeth married to Martin Ivens but I have 1777 Elizabeth LANKSHEAR married John STALEY at Witney and 178x Elizabeth LANKSHEAR married Martin Ivens of  Northampton - possibly she married twice&


John L Lankshear (1759 - ) 1781 John Lankshear marriage Ann Dorne at Witney

Ann Lankshear (1761 - ) 1835 per FFHS site Ann Lankshire age 79 Burial Hanborough Oxford St Peter and St Paul 1835-79 = 1756
Of course 1767 Joseph LANKSHEAR marriage Elizabeth SYLVESTER also lived Hanborough so possible a 2nd marriage of Joseph rather than his sister?
