History Group

The History Group of the Oxton Society meets regularly to discuss local history and plan a range of activities, including Heritage Walks of the Oxton area.

The Society is always interested to hear from anyone with new information about the history or buildings of Oxton. Contact us at history@theoxtonsociety.co.uk

Family History Research

If your ancestors came from the Oxton area and you would like some assistance with your family history research, the History Group will be happy to help if we can.

We helped Rosanne Rappazini from Washington State, USA, to trace her Oxton family and put her in touch with a cousin in the area – read her story.

History of your house

If you would like to find out about the history of your Oxton house, or the people who lived in it, the History Group may be able to help.
