Hi , I am sure you have contacted Elizabeth Kipp the OPC for Bishop`s Nympton , and wonder if she has any explanation as to why the Coles should go to London in 1817/8 ...was a local landowner also owner of property in London ? the OPC might be able to search the burial registers to see if there are any other children between 1813 and 1818 .......I see a Mary Bale Cole married George Richard Hammond in St Andrew, Holborn, in London in 1850 , so perhaps there was a London connection . I cannot replicate your bapt of Mary Bale Cole in Tooting in 1818 , I see a family tree on Ancestry which gives a Mary Ann b 1817 in Bethnal Green, but she is the dau of a James Cole and Ann , he was a weaver ....Cole is quite an ordinary name and there are many of them ...........what makes you think they are gypsies ? The Coles of Bishop`s Nympton have been in the village for a great many generations . And I am not too sure who Charles Cole is or Ann who married Edward Eales .
The 1851 shows that Mary Bale Cole is dead, George R is a widower , 58, b Holborn, Mary A Eales , is his unmarried niece aged 51, b Bethnal Green, and they have two children visiting , Dora and Mary H Kendall , aged 10 and 9 . This information makes George R born c 1793 .
life is hard . soften it with a cat \\\=^..^=///
