A good summary of the Nash family history is at oocities.org/weddfamily/nashfamilyfowlmere/pdf. The Thomas Nash senior and junior mentioned above were both first cousins of Wedd Nash. The one referred to as Thomas senior and also "of Whittlesford" or "of Whittlesea formerly" (this last was probably Crabb Robinson's error as Whittlesey is in the north of Cambridgeshire, while Whiitlesford and Foulmire are near each other just south of Cambridge) was a son of Thomas Nash will PCC 1809 who had married Mary Swann in 1766. Their children were baptised at Fowlmere but Thomas's baptism at Fowlmere on 14.10.1770 apparently gave his mother's name as Elizabeth (not seen image of original). His will PCC 5.4.1841 called him late of Whittlesford oil crusher but now merchant of Thavies Inn, London and mentioned his partnership in a brewery. His burial at Kensal Green on 19.3.1841 from Thavies Inn gave his age as 70. He died a bachelor. The Thomas Nash junior and also called "T: N: of Foulmire" was a son of Richard Wallis Nash and his wife Elizabeth Gifford. He was born in Cambridge in 1775 and married at Saffron Walden, Essex on 13.10.1806 Martha Searle. His will PCC 10.7.1841.  Both Thomas Nashes were involved in business with the Searles. Richard Wallis Nash d.1805, Thomas Nash d.1808 and William Nash d.1830 were the three sons of Thomas Nash d.1755 and his wife Sarah nee Wallis
