Trying to find our Priscilla. I have a Priscilla Bowler born in Colnbrook Buckinghamshire married to George Tomkins on 1901 census. might this be the same Priscilla? Do you know if your Priscilla had other children other than Ann E. Reffell?

This is your Priscilla.She was married REFFELL.As far as I know there was only one child to the marriage. There must have been a divorce. I expect she remarried.
Good luck with your family searching.
Best wishes,

Thanks for the quick response Edwin. Priscilla was my gg grandmother. She had 8 children with her second husband George Tomkins. Their daughter Charlotte was my great grandmother who I had the priviledge to have known. She was alive until I was about 10 years old. Thanks for the help.

Cheers!
Carolin

Recently I found the christening of Caroline Mary Tomkins REFFELL, 1 Jan 1882 in Croydon, Surrey, with parents George and Priscilla. Surely she must be a child of George TOMKINS and Priscilla REFFELL nee BOWLER? I cannot find any record of their marriage though I have searched with TOMKINS, REFFELL and BOWLER. Did George and Priscilla use REFFELL as their surname? Please would you see if one of the children of George TOMKINS and Priscilla is Caroline and born in 1881 (in FreeBMD she is recorded as Caroline Mary REFFELL born in the Dec qtr of 1881)?
