Phoebe Collings (or Collins)
« on: Saturday 30 September 17 16:29 BST (UK) »
I am looking for information for my g.g. grandmother Phoebe Collings (or Collins) born 1805 Belstone Devon.  She married John Vincent (1813-1878) in 1838 and they had three children: Robert, Elizabeth and Thomas.
I seem to have hit a brick wall and would love to find out who she was and her parentage.
Thank you.

born 1805 Belstone Devon

John Vincent (1813)

She was 8yrs older than John and 33 when they married.  Have you considered she may have been previously married and that Collings was her previous married name and not her birth surname?

A copy of the marriage cert will give her marital status at that time

EDIT

Just checked mmn on son Thomas's birth 1845 - surname Collins

Thank you - something to get my teeth into - getting leads helps enormously.
