Margaret Coombs, burial 1793. Pauper.

I looked again at the burial record of my ancestor Margaret Coombs in Bincombe in Dorset in 1793 and it said a pauper under the "wife of Matthew Coombs" bit. I did not notice that before. May be a lead in looking for any poor relief records.

Matthew was about 39 when Margaret died in 1793.
