Rushbrooke Family Genealogy Forum
Does anybody know where the marriage of Thomas Rashbrook and Charlotte, who had 4 children in Polstead between 1822 and 1830, might be or where Thomas came from?? It's not in Boyds and to date haven't come across it. The children were Mary Anne (1822), Elizabeth Pearson (1825 - died in 1827 and buried in Polstead), Thomas (1828) and Elizabeth (1830). There are only two other references to the surname in the parish at this time. One is my 4xgreat aunt Mary Rashbrook who married there in 1819 albeit that both she and her husband originally came from Lavenham, and the second is a reference to the father of an illegitimate child named James Lilly who was baptised in 1839 with the reputed father one James Rosbrook. Our own research into the surname is mainly pre-1800 so haven't got much on this period yet but any suggestions appreciated.
