How did you arrive at 1739? 1736 is very close when ages on marriage or on burial aren't given, and when it was pre- censuses

Hi David

I agree, but as a specialist in the Tunwell family who lost all his work some years ago in a computer crash, I know you cannot take anything for granted.

There were many Tunwell branches having children at that time and a lot of Thomas Tunwell.s.

What I dont want to do is to assume that I have the correct one because it is convenient. I went down too many blind alleys because I was too sure of myself.

Kind Regards

David ;)

No Tunwell baptisms at all at St. Botolphs, just two marriages:

Martha 1714 and Tho 1714

No Tunwell baptisms at all at St. Benet's (Benedicts), just two marriages:

Jane 1840 and Mary Ann 1840

No Tunwell burials at either Church.

Both those Churches close to St. Edwards, well all the City Centre Churches are very close.

The baptism of Thos at All Saints in 1736 son of Henry and Elizabeth is the only Thomas listed on the Cambs Baptism Index around the right time that I can see and fits in with the marriage of Henry and Elizabeth Sherman 1734 at St. Edwards.

Pity the Sherwood used as the second name for son of Thomas is not a perfect match but a big coincidence!
