Hi Ngaire, I am new to this site so have been having a quick look around. I have an Enoch Tonks and a Henrietta Tonks who could be the same ones in your Tree. If you are interested I can give you some more info.

My great great grandparents were Edmond Spencer and Ann Saunders (from Devon). Anyone searching this part of the family please contact me. The Tonks are the same family
