The family of Charles Wombwell and Susannah Reed

John Wombwell had married Honor King on 10.12.1795 in Langley. Their son Charles was born in 1811, also in Langley. He married Susannah Reed on 28th September 1833 in Arkesden and they settled there to bring up their family before emigrating to Australia.

The spelling of the surname is variable dependent on the register entries, which I have copied in each case! There are occasional discrepancies between the information I have and that collected on the other side of the world. Each case is noted and details are at the end.
