Any connection with the Tonkin family in Plymouth, Devon? Heard there was someone looking for a connection with a Richard H Tonkin, from Canada, and his twin John H Tonkin? Noone seemed to know who was asking? We are looking for ancestors of John (Hele,Hole or Hold)Tonkin, father of John Foss Tonkin, from Plymouth, Devon. He married Betty (Elizabeth) Foss 28 June 1805 in Charles Church, Plymouth, Devon. They had children; John Frost (Foss?)Tonkin 1806 Elizabeth Foss Tonkin John Foss Tonkin 10-5-1811 Mary Foss Tonkin Richard Tonkin Henry Tonkin 18-12-1823 Children were all born in Plymouth, and children were baptised in above church. Family later moved to London. John the father was a carpenter. John Foss emigrated to Western Australia. He was a carpenter. I dont know if there is any connection, but if you dont ask you never get an answer. Regards. Murray Tonkin Adelaide South Australia.
