Thomas Turvey and Elizabeth Young
my 3 x gt grandparents

Thomas and Elizabeth were both born c1795. They were married, by licence, in December 1815 at Wick, Worcestershire where they subsequently had six children baptized.

In 1861 Thomas was said to have been born at Seal Green, Worcs; most likely Sale Green, a hamlet within Huddington parish but very close to Crowle or Himbleton. From the LDS Family Search there appears to be no Turvey baptisms in Huddington, but there are three in Himbledon, James in 1781 and John in 1801, both sons of Samuel & Elizabeth, and Thomas, bapt 14 March 1796 with no parents named, but it would seem likely that he too was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth, and given the spread of dates there were probably other siblings baptized elsewhere.

1841 - Thomas & Elizabeth with Robert, Rhoda, James, Joseph
1851 - Thomas & Elizabeth with Thomas, Joseph, 5 yr old G'daughter Mary (daughter of Thomas & Penelope) and a lodger William Willand
1861 - Thomas & Elizabeth with two grandchildren; 19 yr old Martha (daughter of Robert & Hannah) and 5 yr old George Dance (son of Rhoda & Edward).
1871 - Elizabeth with Joseph (unmarried) and Robert (though Robert was also with his wife Hannah!) and a nephew John Burch age 41.
1881 - Elizabeth with Joseph.

Thomas died in Q1 1868 aged 74. Elizabeth died of old age and exhaustion in Pershore Union Workhouse 11 April 1883 aged 92.
