US Lookup Requests / Robert LENT m Elizabeth A RUGGLES NYC late 1700's
« on: Monday 13 April 20 22:55 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone assist with looking up Robert Lent and Elizabeth A Ruggles please in US records who look to have resided in NYC in the late 1700's.
They had a daughter Sarah Lent born 1794 who married my ancestor Henry Edmead.  I have hit a dead end with Sarah and Henry in UK, and presume they lived in NYC until emigrating to UK and having son Alfred in 1829.
Any help much appreciated
Thank you

Is anyone able to help with access to records for Mary Askew in Alwalton/Bluntisham, Huntingdonshire in 1700's? 
Mary married John Goodwin in 1743 in Stanground. 
There are many, many Askew's in the area in the 1700's and the only Mary I have been able to locate from the broadly correct period of time was born 4 May 1729, which would have made her only 14 at the time of marriage. She is possibly the right Mary, and an error in transcribing dates, or she married young.  Does anyone have information that might help confirm either way? If this is the right Mary her parents look to be Thos Askew who married Elizabeth Ellis?  Would greatly welcome assistance please. I would love to be able to get back to 1600's on the line.  Mary would have been my gggggg-grandmother, with her and 4 generations following all living in the same area of Huntingdonshire.
Thank you to anyone that is able to help me.

the daughter of Mary Tombs was Elizabeth TOOMBS b 1776/79 Farcet and died 1832/44.  Thanks to colleagues on this site I have established that there is a  marriage in Lincolnshire has bride Elizabeth TOOMBS of Farcet, Hunts 18 May 1803 at Sutton St James, Thomas WAKE (batchelor, otp) to Elizabeth TOOMBS (spinster, Farcet, Hunts) by licence. 

Mary Toombs married Francis Toombs.  I have not been able to establish her maiden name, nor marriage date/place, but i believe they had John Toombs b 1775 d 1776, Elizabeth as above, John b 1778, Francis b 1780, and possibly Mary with Francis and Mary baptised together. 

The only marriage i can find of Mary Toombs is that in 1791 to Richard Cottrell in Farcet, but this does not fit with what i believe to be her death in 1784 in Stanground, Hunts?  Mary and Richard had Richard, Fanny, John, William, Sarah, Elizabeth (this Eliz died in 1779 in Hunts).  I then wonder if she hooked up with Francis (did Richard die?) and had Elizabeth as above, as i cant find a marriage between Mary and Francis.  It seems he went on to have the children named above this para and he seems to have died in 1788 in Huntingdon.

I am Completely lost!!

Can anyone help with my search to trace Thomas Wake.  He married Elizabeth (no surname) children Mary Anne, thomas, William, Elizabeth in Farcet, Huntingdon.
It is Thomas that I am interested in.  He probably died in 1835.  Who were his parents? 

Huntingdonshire / Isabella Kelly, nee Coles, in 1909

Debra, can you shed any light on the death of Isabella Kelly, nee Coles, in 1909? It was the year that Susan was born. Susan was sent to Canada in 1920 and I wonder if Isabella died in childbirth in 1909/10
