Thomas Whitcombe - Maltster - Father of James Whitcombe (General)

Thank you for the prompt response, MPGriffiths. I had found the 1851 and 1861 census but had missed the Private Members Tree on Ancestry. They seem to have a lot of information about the family so I will email them directly to confirm their sources. Interestingly they indicate that James had a brother William and his marriage certificate shows a William Whitcombe as a witness. So far, so good!

I find it curious that Thomas Watkins was a labourer and then became a maltster. Similarly James went from a man servant (1841 census) to brewer (marriage cert. son's birth cert and 1851 census), then an ostler in 1861 census. Still plenty more digging to do:-)

Thanks again for your interest and information.
Kind regards
