Hi everyone,
I am trying to find the parents of Elizabeth Ann Tomkins. I have her marriage cert which states that her father was Richard Tomkins from Wytham. She married Daniel Mathias Warmington 20 May 1850 at the Parish Church Wytham. I have been unable to find her on any census prior to 1851 when she was married so I have been unable to trace her parents or any siblings. Any help would be much appreciated.

Found this one.

There are a couple of others but the ages seem a bit out.

Hi Chrissie.

I have relies from Wytham and was given details from the Oxford Marriage Index by Steve (P.risboy), I have ones for births and deaths but unfortunately these do not cover Wytham, but I do have a marriage for a Richard Tomkins, Gt Milton and Elizabeth Basson on 21 November 1808 at Wolvercote, could this be your Richard, Elizabeths dad? Wolvercote is a village close to Wytham. This is not far from the Gloucester border by the way.

Hi Chrissie

Just had a thought and had a look at my Tomkins in my tree and I think that your Eliza and my Mary may have been sisters as I have my Mary now Hastings living with husband William Hastings and her Mother Elizabeth Tomkins and Ann in Wolvercote and as it was quite common to call a child after her parents maybe the middle name is used on the census, Any way the census details are Class HO107; Piece 890; Book; 19; Civil parish Woolvercott; County Oxfordshire; Ennumeration District 9; Folio; 4 Page; 2; Line: 11: GSU roll: 474576

Hope this helps you.

Gwen :)

Hi Chrissie

I don't know if you have found Richard in 1841 census, the only one I can find is one possible in Kent, but it seams to be some kind of institution, maybe a prison. Class; HO107; Piece 480; Book: 7: Civil Parish: Bromley: County: Kent: Enumration District:3 Folio: Folio:18 Page: 29; Line: 1; GSU roll; 306874.

Do you think it is our Richard Tomkins, if so what coul the place he is be?:confused:
