      From the 1881 Census for Houghton, Hampshire (RG11 Piece 1228 Folio 68 Page 10) George, 54, Shepherd from Houghton, Hampshire, was with his wife Fanny, 54, from Houghton, Hampshire, and son George, 14, Agricultural Labourer born Houghton, Hampshire, at Main Road, Houghton, Hampshire, England.

      The records of Sarah Ann's Toomer ancestry can be documented back to the marriage of her 4x Gt Grandfather Charles Toomer in 1690 at Westbury, Wilts, at which time he was recorded as a "Bachelor from Winterbourne Stoke". Four subsequent generations of Toomers are recorded in the Parish Registers at Winterbourne Stoke, for whom additional information can be found in various Sarum Marriage Licences, and in two Wills.



      I have attached a word doc that gives brief details of her Toomer ancestors. Sarah Ann's Grandfather George Toomer initially moved to Wallop with his older brother John (my 3x Gt Grandfather), went back to Winterbourne Stoke to get married, then later moved to Houghton, where his younger brother Thomas lived.



      Out of interest, how does your tree tie in with Sarah Ann, as I cannot find the connection? I also note you have recorded another family of Toomers (at Compton Chamberlayne), but I'm unaware of any connection to Sarah Ann.



      Look forward to hearing back from you,



      Best regards,

      Ann
