Tong/Tongue Family Leicestershire.
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 09:07 GMT (UK) »
My 6th grt grandmother was Elizabeth Tong bapt 30 Sep 1750 South Kilworth, Leicestershire. Parents Thomas Tong and Elizabeth.

She marries Joseph Howkins/Hawkins 15 Apr 1771 Gilmorton, Leicestershire.

She has 2 other siblings that I can see -

Mary Tong bapt Nov 1747 South Kilworth, Leic - Marries William Bennet 14 Apr 1777 Gilmorton, Leic.

Ann Tong bapt 22 Oct 1752 South Kilworth - Died Jun 1760 Gilmorton, Leic.

There is also a possible brother to Elizabeth but I have yet to find his baptism.

A Thomas Tong marries Ann Pearcy 2 Jan 1781 North Kilworth, Leic.

This Thomas dies 9 Aug 1826 Misterton, Leic and his birthdate given as 1756, Which would fit with him being a brother but I can find a Bapt for him.

This family name goes between Tong/Tongue


Thomas Tong - I have yet to find a burial for him in Leicestershire, or a marriage between him and Elizabeth. There is a Thomas marrying Elizabeth further north in the country around 1749/41 but im not sure this is the same family as I'm assuming they married before 1747.

Elizabeth Tong - I have Elizabeth's burial as Oct 1773 Gilmorton, Leic.

I note there is another Tong/Tongue family in the northern part of Leicestershire but I have yet to link them.

Any help would be greatly Appreciated
