red mail William & Elizabeth Coombes married c.1872
Looking for information about William and Elizabeth Coombes who married c.1872 and moved between 1876 and 1879 from Kentisbeare to Rewe. They were the parents of 11 children, from William Clement Coombes born 1872 in Kentisbeare to Alfred Coombes born 1894 in Rewe. But who were they? Were they William Coombes and Elizabeth May, marr. Q3 1872 in Tiverton district? or were they William Henry Coombes and Elizabeth Mary Mutter, marr. Q2 1872 in St Thomas? I believe it more likely they were the latter couple, as though there appears to be no mention of a second name or initial for William in the censuses, Elizabeth is always given a middle initial M. Any definite information would be much appreciated.

red mail Elworthy at Kentisbeare
I am trying to track down Henry Elworthy who I am pretty certain came from a farming family in Devon and his birth registered in Kentisbeare about 1848 and then living at Wood Barton. Silverton and Cullomton are also mentioned as registration districts. He went to India before the Suez Canal was open (ie 20 years later) and had an interesting career employed by F & C Osler as their agent in Rajputana and based Calcutta. He retired in 1908 and left India. Did he come back to Devon? If so did he return to the same area? Have I got the right Elworthy family as there is a less likely contender from Stockleigh?
