James Newcombe, William Newcombe


From on Tue, 20 Jan 2004
Dear Elizabeth,
The tree of the Newcombe family who married into the Downer family with your Jessop connections, is per the attached file.
The Jessop page is for Samuel Jessop born in Ireland wed 1863 to Esther Coote
The William Newcombe wed 1854 to Ellen Higgins in your website also descends from a William Newcombe, whom I believe was born in Bulkworthy, Devon, as the son of Henry Heal Newcombe & Mary Moore.
Cheers, Ross
I make no warranty whatsoever as to the accuracy or completeness of the followng data.
Write to Ross for a full copy, I have changed the layout to make it easier to read on the screen.

Hi Elizabeth,
I thought I emailed you ages ago to advise that my Newcombe tree was quite wrong. Sure the Australian part is correct, but the Devon part is incorrect due to errors given by the informer at the death of James Newcombe in 1914. James's father remarried and the parents of James were incorrectly assumed to be the 2nd wife of James's father who was not his mother.
I'll elaborate later. Cheers, Ross Newcombe
