Grubb family of Newbury Berkshire
« on: Wednesday 02 March 22 03:18 GMT (UK) »
Hoping I might get some help once again with my Newbury family.  I had a lot of help some years ago but have come up with a new question as the only records online are transcripts itís hard to be sure.

My ancestor John Grubb was born in Newbury in 1783 to Thomas and Martha Grubb Ö we believe Martha was Martha Grey.  Recently dna has shown a connection to an Elizabeth Grubb who could be Johnís sister or half sister as I donít have her baptism record.  But it appears that Thomas may have been married to another Martha Ö Martha Woodley in 1777.  Then married Martha Grey in 1782 but it doesnít give Thomas Grubbís marital status on the transcript so I donít know for sure if itís the same Thomas that married Martha Woodley.  Iíve found a baptism for a Thomas son of Thomas and Martha in 1780  Öso that could be the first Martha (Woodley) then there is a baptism in 1778 but no first name just Grubb and parents names.  There is also a death in 1787 for Martha Grubb daughter of Thomas.  On the the 1815 Toomers census I was told that Thomas along with his wife Martha also has an Ann Stillman living with them and she I believe is the daughter of Elizabeth the possible sister of my John as she married James Stillman in 1799 and they have a daughter Ann.

Hope that makes an ounce of sense.  So if anyone has access to any of these records I would appreciate the help as Iím in Australia :-)
