Looking to trace MARY TOOMBS died Stanground, Huntingdonshire possibly 1784
« on: Monday 30 September 19 16:27 BST (UK) »
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!!

Hi

There is a marriage of Francis toombs to Mary Goodwin 14 September 1773 at Fletton. Also I have seen a baptism for a Francis Tombes son of John and Eliz baptised 28 May 1748 at Southoe, Huntingdonshire with a note saying place was stanground.

I have also just found a burial at stanground for a Mary Toombs aged 71 on
13 Aug 1818.
Regards


Jon

Jon, thank you this is really helpful and looks to be the Mary I am looking for. 
As Mary Goodwin born 1745/50  died 1818 her parents were John Goodwin m to Mary Goodwin nee Askew in 1743.
Do you or anyone have access to information on how many children they had, and dates of Mary Askew birth and death. They could be from Fletton/Stanground in Hunts. 
I would like to be able to find out more about Mary Askew's parents too if possible.
