The Family of John Wombwell and Honor King


John Wombwell was the son of James Wombwell and Sarah Rogers. John was born on 27th July 1774 at Braintree and christened on 28th October the same year.

John married Honor King on 10th December 1795 at Langley Parish Church. By then, he was a 'bachelor of this parish' and had been, I suspect for some time. Honor was a daughter of Thomas King, a yeoman of Langley. They had 15 children, and further pages outline the families of some of these. I know George and Joseph never married, neither did the first Peter who was only 19 days old when he died. I am not sure about William, but it appears that all the others married locally. The eldest son to have married, John, remained in the Langley throughout his life, but his two younger married brothers emigrated to Australia.

John apparently died on 26th December 1945, but I can find no reference to either him or Honor at the 1841 Census.
