BIshop Loveday School And The Village

WE lived in Blackwood Place not sure what date we moved there I think it was about 1965 just after my sister Samantha was born. It was a new house .My sister Sam and I went to the school in the village and I think it had not long been open. I am doing a project to assist my daughter of 7 what I was doing when I was seven...
I recall the village shop which was run my Mr Sands.
THe vicar was Donald Bishop and the head master was Mr Tinsdeal?? I now live in Australia and did try and visit the school when back in Banbury last year sadly even after calling the school they did not respond to my emails so I didn't get to do a nostalgia tour..

Great Tithe Farm

My great grandfather, Corneby Austin, lived on this farm in the 1871 census. It must have belonged to the family, as my grandfather also lived there. My great great grandfather was John Austin and his wife was Sarah. (John's farther was John Austin and his wife was Mary. They also were farmers from Bodicote.) I know John Jnr was a farmer and miller. I am interested in finding any Austins that still live in the area, as I am doing a family tree, and I live in Australia. my email address is


We lived in Bodicote for a few years and loved it very much. Our youngest daughter also went to school with Duval Children. The people that you came in contact with on a daily basis were always so friendly and always willing to accept you into their lives.

Your Children And Mine

Glad I found you on this wonderful site. We have remembered the old tree with the conkers, and the sticky burrs.

Bodicote 1967 to 1970

We were stationed at Upper Heyford, England, my wife and I and our children. We lived in Bodicote, on Chapel Lane. Our children went to Bishop Loveday School. We liked it there. I hope someone reads this and sends us a memory note.

Oxford Road c1955, Adderbury

My family lived in The Lodge (house on far right of picture) for about 47 years.
The Lodge is the gatehouse to the mansion called Adderbury House which became a home for elderly after the 2nd World War. The two pubs you can see are The Red Lion (still exists) and The Wheatsheaf which is now a house.

St Johns Priory (Private Girls School)

St John's Priory School, Banbury
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I was a pupil at St Johns Priory, and whilst I did not appreciate it at the time, it was an amazing start in life. The Nuns were incredibly strict so we all studied hard. Our classes were really small, by the time I left at the age of 11 I think we only had about 10 people in the year/class.

The two Sisters that I remember have since died (I did get in contact with them only to find one had passed away and the other was quite poorly and later died). I have visited their grave, they are buried together, at the Convent in Birmingham.

St Johns Priory has an amazing history and I have purhcased a book which details how the school was founded etc.
