red mail Stabb Edwards

I would like to find out more about the TONKIN family, headed by JOHN and SUKEY TONKIN. IN 1841 they were living in St Agnes with their children GEORGE, WILLIAM, SUSAN and SAM, and John was a Copper Miner. In the 1851 census they are in St Ives together with MARY, LOUISE and STEVEN, John was described as a Tin Miner. I could not find them in 1861 but by 1871 they were living in Devonport and John, now 75 and his second son William are both described as oufitters. John must have died before the 1891 census, as Sukey 96, is described as a widow, and William continued the family business and is described as a Draper employing 6 men, 2 boys, 20 women and 6 girls.
Is the anyone who could help me make this connection please? My great great grandfather was Richard Tonkin Denbow. He came from Devonport. One of the witnesses at his second marriage in London in 1858 was Joyce Biddlecombe. In the 1861 census James Biddlecombe and his wife Joyce Davey (or Dasey) Biddlecombe are listed living in Euston Road St Pancras London with their children William and Emily. They both give their birthplace as Devonport. Also listed is Mary Ann Tonkin , 76, mother in law who gave her place of birth as St Ives Cornwall. There must be a connection between Mary Ann Tonkin and my great great great grandmother Bridget Tonkin, Richards mother, who was born in St Buryan but lived in Devonport. I have hit a brick wall in identifying Bridgets parents and think that Mary Ann could provide the link. I know its a long shot but....
