My branch of the Nurcombes starts (at the moment) with Joseph Nurcombe who married Joan and had a son in Wiveliscombe, SOM, Thomas in 1787 or 1790. Thomas was a mason and died in either 1833 or 1836. Thomas married Maria Howell on 6 Jan 1815. Maria was born in 1787. Thomas and Maria had the following Children: - Robert, William, Robert (d 29 June 1834), Charlotte, Benjamin, Maria, Eliza (b 1822, d 28 Apr 1833), John (b 1829), and Mary (b 1833). John was a sawyer (Carpenter) & married Fanny and had the following children: - Florence Fanny (b 1866, d 10 Mar 1867), Albert (b 1866), Maria (b 1868), Robert Thomas (b 1870), Elizabeth (b 21 May 1871), Annie (b1874), William (b1875), Emily (b 1875) and John (b 1878). Elizabeth married William Sydney Brain and they are my Great-Grandparents. Thomas and Marias last child, Mary emigrated to Australia in 1853 and married Thomas Thorne in 1854. They had a grandchild named Ernest Nurcombe Thorne (b1886 Brunswick, Victoria). Any connections??
