Is anyone researching a COOMBE family in the Exeter area -
Charlotte Elizabeth COOMBE born 1834 in Shillingford St.George, parents
William Coombe, Schoolmaster and Ann COOMBE (nee Murrow).
Catherine COOMBE (sister) bapt.,1831 married Samuel Frederick Nicholls later
of Tormoham after retirement from the army he was a tollkeeper,.
Other children in the COOMBE family were:
Elizabeth Orchard COOMBE bapt. 1825
William Henry COOMBE " " 1826
Mary COOMBE " 1828
Henry COOMBE " 1836
Charlotte Elizabeth Coombe married a Charles Coombe , mariner and they had
one daughter Charlotte who was my grandmother.
I am also researching a FOSTER family from Brixham. The were on the 1841
census for All Saints Brixham as
James FOSTER age 25 fisherman born in Devon
Marianne FOSTER age 25 wife born in Plymouth
Joseph John FOSTER age 7 son
Elizabeth FOSTER age 15 mths daughter.
Prior to the 1851 census they moved to Hull via a short stay in Ramsgate
I look forward from anyone connected with the above two fa ilies.
