My research into the Hoare family has taken be back over the last seven years from Birmingham, where I was born to Northampton where my grandfather and greatgrandfather were
born in the 1800's, back to Banbury and Tackley in the previous two centuries to Gloucester in the 15th and 16th century.
This has been a remarkable journey for me and I am sure has many more surprises in store. As I have accumulated a lot of information along the way, some not directly related to my Hoare family, I would like to share this information and would gladly add to this website any more information that you would like to send me if related to the Hoare family, even if not mine.
