Thomas Tooze and Jane Burton

Pound Hill, Holcombe Rogus

Thomas Tooze (b. 1776), listed as Jnr, son of Thomas Tooze and Dorothy Woodbery, married Jane Burton (b. 1766), at All Saints Church, Holcombe Rogus on 16 Feb 1800. Both parties were of the parish, but I've found no baptism for Jane Burton to trace who her parents may have been.

Thomas and Jane probably had at least these four children:
  1. Elizabeth Tooze bap. 12 Oct 1800 in Holcombe Rogus
  2. Sarah Tooze bap. 19 Sep 1802 in Holcombe Rogus
  3. Thomas Tooze b. 5 Jan 1805, bap. 20 Jan 1805 in Halberton
  4. John Tooze bap. 21 Feb 1813 in Willand
With a gap of eight years between the births of Thomas and John, there may have been no children born between them and that John was a 'mid life surprise'. Equally, there could have been others, who they did not baptise for whatever reason. In particular, it seems a distinct possibility that Ellen Toose (sic), born in Halberton, in around 1808, was also a child of this family.

In 1841, Thomas Tooze (65) Maltster and Jane Tooze (75) were listed as living on Hart's Hill, Holcombe Rogus.

Jane Tooze died in 1848. She will have been around 82.

In 1851, Thomas Tooze (75) Widowed, Pauper Formerly A Maltster, was a Lodger in the household of William Govier (27) and his wife Sarah (née Norman), on Pound Hill, Holcombe Rogus.

It does not appear that Thomas Tooze' death has been registered.
