This file contains a compilation of data from many sources. I believe that my connection from Thomas Tostevin b 1824 is accurate and details of his siblings and his Father Thomas Tostevin b 1790 most likely accurate. Earlier data is from a range of sources and accuracy not known
If you are able to verify Thomas Tostevin b 1790 and the earlier data, it would be appreciated

From family history and from research done at the Priaulx Library, St Peter Port, Guernsey, I am comfortable that my great great Grandfather, is indeed Thomas Tostevin, born 25th Sept. 1824 in St Pierre Du Bois [ St Pierre Du Bois is our ancestral parish area in Guernsey]. His St Pierre du Bois Parish Baptism entry that says “ Thomas Tostevin son of Thomas Tostevin and Marie Tostevin his wife was born 25 September 1824 and baptised on the 17 October following. Godparents: Thomas Brehaut, Jean Tostevin and Rachel Tostevin.” There is also plenty of information around [census/birth/marriage/death] indicating that the Tostevin’s in my data also resided at known family homes in Guernsey [Belmont Rd, Rohais Tce, Fountain St, Rouge Hui, Les Gravees, Longfrei house]
My research also shows that Thomas b 25th Sept, 1824 also had 3 siblings, Marie, Louise and Alfred, with Alfred emigrating to South Australia However
There are many Internet trees/data stating that a Thomas Tostevin, with my descendants/parents, was born on various other dates during 1824/1825 and places [mainly Le Clos] and with siblings, who vary with my data [specifically a twin, James Prevost Tostevin, who went to USA] Additionally, this Thomas b 1825/25 has his parents invariably shown as Thomas Tostevin b 1800 and Marie Prevost b 1800
So, identifying the correct the Thomas Tostevin born late 1700’s and early 1800’s will therefore be an ongoing problem for me
