Hi

Thomas b. 1846 Ramsgate, parents = George Pine Petherbridge & Caroline Dicker/s both b. Devon.

My Petherbridge connection is Mary Elizabeth Petherbridge b. 1829 Ramsgate, parents = Henry Petherbridge and Elizabeth ?.

Most of the family are mariners, mainly fishermen.

In 1871 Thomas sailed with a William Edwards b. 1836 Devon. William was my grandmother's grandfather.

Thomas' family moved to Hull between 1851-1861.

Looking for a connection between Thomas and Mary Elizabeth's family.

Any snippet, no matter how small will be very welcome.

Many thanks
Geoff

Thanks, Amanda.

Yes, Thomas and family were in Hull after 1851. His father, George Pine.. was at sea, he d. 1893 Hull aged 70y.

I'm not too familiar with Thomas' family yet, it's only recently I realised there may be a connection to my line.

Re the marriage, I'll take a look at the tree later and check my notes.

Thanks, Dave.

Not having had much luck with Mary Elizabeth's family, mainly because the family was back and forth between Brixham and Ramsgate up to the mid 1840's making it difficult to pin them down.

I'm hoping that Thomas' father George Pine fit's in somewhere. I'll be checking the tree later.

That would fit well with Amanda's 1824 marriage for Henry... Just need to prove it now :biggrin:

I have found a couple of trees now and no Henry, they have a Christopher b. c1803, doesn't mean a lot though. The 1841 census has him b. c1808, could be rounded down a bit. If he was b. 1808 that would make him 16y at mar. :rolleyes:
