Hello

I'm looking for information on 'Thomas Tombleson Berry' who was allotted the 14th Piece of land from Welney in 1821 in the the drainage of the great level of the fens.

I have most of the 'Tombleson' and 'Tombleson Berry' lines but I can't tie Robert up anywhere - even though he clearly exists!

Hope someone can help?

Thanks
Hazel

Hello

Thank you for taking the time to reply and research this. I have Thomas Tombleson Berry and all the others with Tombleson as a middle name (came from their mother's maiden name (I live in the Berry family home in Christchurch, Cambridgeshire).

It's Robert I can't locate anywhere - even though I know he exists:

Well Iโ€™m stuck on this one. Thomas pops up a few times when searching. As for Robert only the link you posted. Just a thought was Robertโ€™s name miss printed? I dont know if the Norfolk Heritage Centre would be of any help? You could give it a try.

Elizabeth Tombleson married Samuel Berry in 1785 which I assume is the same Samuel Berry who had Lot VIII - No 21 in 1801 and subsequently Robert Tombleson Berry had the same lot in 1821. Samuel died in 1826, Upwell, Elizabeth died in 1793, Upwell. As far as I can see they had 6 children but Robert was'nt one of them.

Thank you for your reply. I live in the Berry family home and have been researching them for 3 years now - and this one is driving me mad!!
