Vinden Family of Farnham, Surrey

The Vinden family of Upper Hale, near Farnham, is descended from William Vinden who lived at Crondall, Hampshire, during the 1740s. William's ancestry has not yet been established, though Vinden families had been resident in north east Hampshire since Elizabethan times.
 
All present members of the family appear to be descended from William Vinden's great-grandson Robert Vinden
(1807-1879) who married Mary Saunders at Farnham in 1826. Most are descended from two of Robert's sons:
     James (1840-1910) who married Esther May in 1861 at Aldershot Wesleyan Chapel and had at least twelve children.
     George (1853-1903) who married Ellen Matthews in 1872 and had at least eleven children.
The family has now spread to Wiltshire, Northumberland, East Anglia, and Canada. A family tree showing more than 120 Vindens and their spouses has been compiled.
