Hi Gwen,
Did she marry, and if so do you have a marriage cert.?
Steve.:)
Hi Steve,

She married William Hastings obviously before she was 15 in the 1841 Cencus, I do not Know who or if Her mother Elizabeth Tompkins married, maybe Mary and Ann were illagitamate, accidents do happen!

Thanks for your help.

Gwen :)

Hi Gwen,
Do you have William and Mary's marriage cert. Mary's father 'should' be named but not always.

Wiiliam Hastings

Who is Elizabeth. Is it not Mary Tomkins b.1801 her mother.?

Steve.:)

Hi Gwen,

Yes, but not always. I have the father of my Granny named as deceased on her marrige cert. Jacob Moore.(deceased).

I also have marriage certs with no father named.:mad:

Who is Elizabeth Tomkins.:biggrin:

Steve.:)
Hi Steve

On some records she is shown as Tompkins on others as Tomkins, but hopefuly Elizabeth is Marys mother, this partly came via a hint for Marys name, aint life complicated,:2fun: :biggrin: :2fun:

Hi Steve,

Sorry I was having a senior moment, to many things going on and no time to sort them all.

Should have said that Elizabeth Tompkins was born about 1901
Mary was born about 1825 was Tompkins now
Hastings
Anne Tompkins born 1828
William Hastings born about 1820

This is from the 1841 Cencus of Woolvercott Oxfordshire.
