Hi

I am trying to find out more about Benjamin's family. In our family we have olive skin and want to know if it comes from Benjamin's side or his wife's side Louisa Digby (which we can't find anything about) This is what I have so far

Benjamin Tonks born 1832(Death cert says Birmingham but newspaper article says native of Warwickshire), Died 27/7/1884 52yrs (had a heart problem)
Married at 23 to Louisa Digby born 1832 died 16/8/1891 59yrs (Married in Melbourne Australia)
Mother Esther (or Hester) Digby born 1799, died 11/2/1870 71yrs

Four children
Benjamin Digby Tonks born 1856
William Tonks - born 1858
Arthur Tonks born 1860, think married C Nolan 1/10/1884
Henry Tonks - born 1863
Daughter - born 1865

If anyone can help, that would be great

Thanks
