The Family of John Wombwell and Sarah Negus

This should probably be better entitled 'what little is known of the family ...'

John was the son of John Womwell and Mary Hare. He was baptized at Newport on 1st December 1734.

He married Sarah at Arkesden Parish Church on 23rd June 1758 and their daughter Sarah was baptized there on 14th January 1759 (she was born on 23rd December 1758). I have copies of the register entries.

John Wombwell and Richard Wombwell were brothers, and they married sisters Sarah and Elizabeth Negus respectively. I am also certain that James Womwell was linked to them both.

The Arkesden register also records that a Sarah Wommel was buried there on 4th July 1771, 'a child from Rickling'. This could possibly be the same person, but I am not sure whether the family went from Arkesden to Rickling (seems possible, though).
