Sarah Tomson

b. circa 1756, d. 1825
     Sarah Tomson was born circa 1756 at Northamptonshire, England; Possibly at Edgcote, as Sarah is "of Edgcote" when she married.
The closest possibility for Sarah's baptism found so far is:
8 Oct 1752 at Lichborough, Northamptonshire daughter of John Thomson and wife Ann. This should not be assumed as the correct one until a lot more work is done though.1
Marriage banns for Sarah Tomson and William Lines were published on 29 September 1776 at Chipping Warden, Northamptonshire, England; Banns read 15th, 22nd and 29th September 1776. William is of this parish and Sarah of the parish of Edgcott [Edgcote].2
As of 29 September 1776, her married name was Lines.

Sarah Tomson died in 1825 at Chipping Warden, Northamptonshire, England.3
Sarah Tomson was buried on 28 July 1825 at Chipping Warden, Northamptonshire, England, "age 70 years."3
Note that a Catherine Lines of Chipping Warden was buried 7 August 1825, age 44 years. This would be the wife of Sarah's son Nathan Lines.4,3
