Chalgrove - Family History

One of the reasons for visting Oxford was for my Australian wife, Maree, to go to Chalgrove to see where her ancestors came from. Chalgrove is a small village 10 miles south east of Oxford city.
My wifes ancerstors are the Belson family, and the thatched cottage where they lived still stands today.
We have been told that a photograph of the cottage was used on boxes of Cadbury Milk Tray
