Thomas DOBLE & Elizabeth - who ?
« on: Monday 04 May 09 19:24 BST (UK) »
My ggggg-g/father Thomas Doble born 1711 Bap 15/2/1711 Churchstanton Devon - died 1785 buried 1/10/1785 Got this info on the Churchstanton Church records.

I know his wife was called Elizabeth but haven't a clue what her maiden name was, where or when she was born or where they married.  Her death isn't recorded in the Churchstanton records where Thomas was buried although their 8 children are all baptised and recorded there.
Thomas was recorded as being a pauper.

Where do I go from here :) :) :)
Doble.  North. Garrish. Jewell. Gillard.
Vincent.  Spiller. Collings. Board.   
Harris. Manfield. Manning. Salter. Eveleigh.
Strawbridge. Matthews. Sweetland.
Devon. NZ. Australia.

There is a burial shown for a Betty DOBLE, Pauper at Churchstanton 5 Sep 1784. I would expect that the marriage took place in her home parish. The following link shows nearby parishes which you may want to research:

Squance, Lillicrap, Dankester, Surtees, Yates

You might also want to obtain a copy of a will belonging to john DOBLE of Churchstanton (dated 1825) which you can obtain from the Devon Record Office very inexpensively.

Thanks for your help.  Been trying other parishes in the area but a lot of them aren't available like the Churchstanton church records but will keep trying - garden keeps calling me.
The records office in Devon looks like it needs transcribers (? is that the word) which gives me food for thought but maybe I'm still a bit new at this sort of thing. :) :)

Hey!! I have a Thomas Doble and Elizabeth on my ancestry family tree... Thomas is my 6th great grandfather! I am also at a loss with Elizabeth! I only have her year of birth as being 1712.

Are you on Facebook? We have a Churchstanton desendents facebook group we would love you to be a part of our group if your not already, Hopefully we can find out who this mystery Elizabeth is :) Hope to speak to you soon and sounds like we are related somehow would love to talk more to you. My DNA results are also on the ancestry sit if you want to browse it is public
