Lutterworth/Leics - Coventry, Warks, UK - RAINBOWS

Classification: Query
Just a quick update on some elusive Rainbows that I'm still looking for. William Rainbow, birth date and place unknown, the husband of Phoebe (nee Taylor) and father of John Rainbow, who was born in Cottesbach, Leicestershire, UK in 1746, is nowhere to be found! I've seen him in a few family trees but nobody seems to have managed to break this brick wall. Can you help?

Then William Ballard Rainbow, he was born in Coventry in 1862, was a chemist, a councilor, one of the founders of the Allotment Society in Coventry and a Passive Resister. Apparently he died in a tragic accident sometime in the 1930s but I can't find a record of his death. Any info gratefully received!

Please visit my website: where there are more details about my research and link to my Rainbow Family Genealogy page on Facebook. Good hunting!
