The name Kaye is used throughout these trees.
In fact the name is shown in records and census reports at various times as:-
Kaye,  Key or Kay. 

Prior to 1900 it was rare to find people with more than one forename. Maybe because few could read and write.

"Brown Boots in earlsdon"  by Mary Montes published 1989 by Coventry Branch of Historical Association.

George Key 1785 or 1786


Born in the small Warwickshire village of Warmington, about 6 miles North West of Banbury overlooking the Avon Dasset hills.
George worked as an agricultural or farmers labourer, a very unusual occupation in those days. He was probably living eight miles away in Swalcliffe in North Oxfordshire, some six miles West of Banbury.
On June 15th 1820, at the age of 34, he married Keziah Grant (of this parish) at St Peter and St Pauls Parish church. Keziah was 8 to 10 years his junior and born in the hamlet of Ascot in the parish of Whichford in South Warwickshire, some five miles South of Swalcliffe where she was in service.
The marriage was witnessed by William Sabin and Susannah and Ann Durham (probably relatives of George).
Check if  these Durhams were related to Elizabeth Durham, wife of William Key 1747-1817
George and Keziah had at least six children, all baptized at Swalcliffe parish church. The following are their baptismal dates.
Sarah Key 8 July 1821
William Kay 1 feb 1824
John Kay 14 Oct 1827
Elizabeth Kay 14 Oct 1832
<
Elizabeth Kay 17 Oct 1830  died at 8 months buried 12 June 1831
George Kay 22 May 1836

George and Keziah lived their married life in a cottage in Swalcliffe. When the children were growing up Keziah had no occupation but in 1861 (aged 65) and again in 1871 (aged 75) she was described as a “charwoman”.
In 1856 ( aged 71) George was described as “shepherd” and in 1861 (aged 76) he was described as “formerly labourer”
He died in 1865 (aged 79) and Keziah died in 1877 (aged 81) and both were buried in the village churchyard although no memorial stone exists

Coventry City Football Club

In 1907 Coventry City Football Club was 1000 pounds in debt and run by a 23  man committee.  John Tipping and six other business men raised 2000 pounds in 5 shilling shares with the dream of getting the team into the Southern League. They formed a limited company and with the new leaders  at the helm lead the team into the first round of the FA cup and 4th in the Birmingham league.
John had been selling food and drink at the ground and he had 200 shares. It is not clear what happened to the shares.
Tipping was owed 96 pounds by the club and he took another 200 shares in payment.
Some 80 years later Coventry City actually won the FA cup final in Wembley Stadium
