My Coombs ancestors.

Now that I have found my George Coombs born in Bincombe Dorset son of Matthew and Margaret Coombs I would like to find out what happened to his sister Susannah Coombs and his father Matthew.

Margaret died in 1793 in Bincombe when George was 3. A Matthew Coombs died in 1826 in Dorchester but I dont think it is my one as a Matthew Coombs was born in Dorchester in 1749 and married there and appeared to live there.

Luckily there are not that many Matthew Coombs around for me to research a burial for. I reckon after Margaret died in 1793 Matthew and his 2 children moved to London. George called his eldest son Matthew George Coombs and his eldest daughter Margaret Coombs. There was another sibling Mary in 1778 but she died as a baby.
