I'm having trouble trying to confirm the identity of this James TONKIN

Possibly the husband of Edith BIDDLE.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Janilye.

The James I'm looking for was born in 1838 and was a strict Methodist.
The James that died in 1907 fits these details but one can never be sure without confirmation. The hunt continues.

Cheers.

I have a James Tonkin who married Edith Biddle 6th June 1865 in Encounter Bay, South Australia. They had two children Arthur Henry & Edith Grace.
Arthur Henry is my connection and one of his daughters married a Skipworth.
I don't have where James was born, but I have his father John coming from Penzance, Cornwell. The sources I have are off the www or familysearch, so nothing of hard paper reference. Hope this might help.

Thank you for your comment GlennJoy.

I don't use FamilySearch so don't know what details people have posted. I prefer to use the records because they are more reliable and I only have myself to blame for errors. James and Edith had a total of nine children and they are scattered all over Australia and it is time consuming trying to follow their lines.

Cheers.
