RAINBOWs: Warwickshire and London

RAINBOWs: Warwickshire and London

Surnames: RAINBOW
Hello all. My paternal grandmother was a Rainbow. In tracing her line I am back to c1745 in London area (Edward Rainbow son of another Edward from Chiswick). Edward's son William Thomas married a Lucy Rainbow, daughter of Robert Rainbow c 1801 in London. I have various wills etc, and believe that Robert is a son of Thomas Rainbow/Anne Godson (Thomas also married previously to Phillipa Hunt...although the link is a bit tenuous.

If any of this sounds familiar I'd love to hear from you!

Hi Katie,
Have just read your message on the board. Interestingly I have the following in my database.
Thomas RAINBOW, bpt 25 June 1721 in Sutton-under-Brailes, Warwickshire, married to Anne GODSON, bpt. 16 September 1711 in Brailes, Warwickshire. They had a son Robert who was baptised 23 May 1745 in St. George's Church, Brailes, Warwickshire. I last researched this family in February 2011 &,at that time, I found no further info for him. I am trying to research a one-name-study of RAINBOW & I am a descendant from the Warwickshire RAINBOWs. My connection to this branch of the family has to be proven yet.
