My 4xgreat grandfather was George Coombs. He was born in about 1790. He wed a Sarah in around 1810ish and they had 4 children:-

Matthew George Coombs born 16 July 1812 at 114 Garys Inn Lane, Holborn, London
Margaret Coombs born 3rd June 1817 in Marylebone London.
Frederick Coombs born 22 December 1819 in Orange Court, Soho, London
William Thomas Coombs born in September 1828 in Husband Street, Soho, London.

I think Sarah was later known as Sarah Bradford. I am having difficulty finding anymore info on them and their marriage. I have just sent off for the original PR of a George Coombs marriage to Sarah Davy in Axminster in Devon in April 1810.

Matthew G Coombs wed twice in 1835 and 1845 at the same church, Paddington, an area that he didnt usually live in? Why would that be? His 1845 address was North Wharf Road. A Thomas Coombs aged 56 was living down North Wharf Road there in 1851 born in Westminster. He was christened at St Margaret, Westminster in 1793.

He had two older brothers William Thomas Coombs and William Coombs born in 1787 and 1798. The first one must have died.

I am trying to find out more on George though.
