red mail Seeking details about Kezia Coombes
My great,great grandmother, Kezia Coombes, was born in 1844 in Exminster/Teignmouth. She was the daughter of Samuel Coombes. At the age of 22 she was married in 1866 in the City of Worcester to James Carless, and for the next 50 years she resided in Ruabon, North Wales, eventually dying in 1925. Despite many enquiries including the Record Office, Southport, I have been unable to trace Kezia's date of birth; where she was residing at birth and the maiden name of her Mother. Chapel Street, West Teignmouth, in 1851 and 1881, was an area where families bearing the name of Coombes were residing. Is this still the case? In 1861, at the age of 17 Kezia was a House Servant to an Independents Minister and his wife - John and Eliza Bowhay, at 2, Myrtle Terrace, East Teignmouth. Is there anyone in Exminister/Teignmouth who has knowledge of the Coombes families with emphasis on Kezia and her date of birth, etc. Many Thanks.
