    • I am not certain if it was this Henry or his father who was the preacher; I now think probably this one as Marian Warriner's info. describes him as "very religious".

      In "The Collier's Rant: Song and Culture in the Industrial Village" a Henry Vogwell from Cramlington is mentioned as a 'character' preacher: "in the pulpit he would excitedly pace backwards and forwards, speaking rapidly in a weird, wailing voice, often until he was out of breath".

    Notes 
    • Recorded as "at home" in the 1851 census, when aged 10 - presumably meaning he was neither at school nor out at work. Or working at home? - doing chores for his parents? Since his mother as well as his father was shown as working, perhaps he was doing housework and helping to look after his younger siblings.

      Although his daughter Lavinia was born in Cramlington in 1871, Henry's wife died back in Cornwall the following year and 2 years later, in 1874, Henry remarried in Cornwall. But he was back in Cramlington for the birth of his daughter Elizabeth Jane in 1875, and all records from then to the last in England, the 1881 census, are in the North East.

      Colls is referring to Bastow Wilson's "A Primitive Methodist Diamond Field. The story of a Nortumbrian Mining Circuit" (1909) and I think the quote describing Vogwell comes from this earlier book.
