    • In 'village', Kingsteignton in 1841 (adjacent entry is Berry Lane); in Berry Lane, Kingsteignton in 1851.
    Residence 1861  Pennycomequick, Whitchurch, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From Census Return
      Pennycomequick is on the OS map at SX515740
      Samuel was with his father, William, his sister  Jemimah and his cousin Emanuel Vogwill at the time of the 1861 census.
    Occupation Copper miner 
    1861  Pennycomequick, Whitchurch, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Although recorded as a copper miner on the Census of 7th / 8th April 1861, Samuel was described simply as a labourer on his marriage cert. later that year (he married on 17 Nov 1861).
    Occupation Mine labourer 
    1864  Bedford Bridge, Buckland Monachorum, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • He was living in  Bedford Bridge Cottages when his first daughter Hannah was born in 1864, and at that time was a "mine labourer". Bedford Bridge is about half a mile north of Horrabridge, a couple of miles from Buckland Monachorum village; the main industry in Horrabridge was copper and tin mining.
      I don't know if Samuel was mining copper and / or tin.
    Occupation Labourer on the government works 
    1866  St. Budeaux, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location

    1870  Clearbrook, Buckland Monachorum, Devon, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • (Abode and occupation from daughter Mary Ann's birth certificate; I assume that as he was living there Samuel was also working there)
      Although a farm labourer, Samuel was living in Clearbrook, a hamlet someway from Buckland Monachorum village, though in the Parish. The hamlet is believed to have become established due to mining in the 1850s, and mining was the main source of employment. Samuel may have worked both on the land and in the mine according to the season. 
    Occupation Ironstone miner 
    From 1871 to 1872  Rosedale West, Yorkshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location

    Residence 1874  75, Cleveland Street, Liverton Mines (als New London), Cleveland, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Sometime between the birth of son John in May 1872 and the birth of daughter Eliza in April 1874 the family moved nearly twenty miles north to the newly opened Liverton Mines, near Lofthouse (as it was then, now Loftus).
      The Loftus History website covers the area.

    Residence 1891  Grainger Terrace, Cocken, Co. Durham, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • At the time of the 1891 census the family were living in 4 rooms here. The census shows 5 children (John-Edith) present but not Samuel's wife, who was visiting their eldest daughter - she was  staying, listed as a visitor, at the house where Emily was a servant.
    Occupation Coal miner

    Retired From 1901 to 1915  Sycamore Street, Annfield Plain, Co. Durham, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • I don't know when Samuel retired but it was by the time of the 1901 census. Aged only about 63, this seems quite young (for that time) to have retired - I don't know if he retired early due to ill health. He had certainly had a tough life, and copper mining not only had the dangers inherent in any mining but resulted in copper poisoning and an early death. Clearly Samuel had not been a copper miner long enough to suffer an early death, but a lower level of poisoning may still have affected his health. The 1911 census shows he was in receipt of money from the old age pensioners relief fund.
      In 1901 the family were in Annfield Plain - the three youngest children were living at home (Elizabeth, Samuel and Edith), and with Samuel junior working as a miner, Samuel senior and Elizabeth may well not have moved away until he had married (1905) and set up home of his own. By then Elizabeth junior had also married (1902), while Edith moved with them.
    Residence In retirement ... 
    From 1911 to 1915  Garden Street, Houghall, Co. Durham, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Living at 14 Garden Street, Houghall by the time of the 1911 Census, he died there in 1915 as did his wife (at the same address as in the census) in 1928. (Houghall is on the edge of Durham city, the Durham side of the river in the Shincliffe direction).
      The 1911 census shows that by then only one of the 11 children born to Samuel and Elizabeth had died (this would be Hannah), and Edith, their youngest, was still living with them.

      (Samuel's son Henry subsequently lived in Garden St., being there by 1938, but was still in  Dawdon in 1923 so appears not to have been there at the same time as his parents.)
    Died Cause: Cerebral haemorrhage, 2 days 
    29 Oct 1915  Houghall, Co. Durham, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • The death was registered by his son Samuel, and as at "Houghall St. Oswald, Durham".

    • From the DFHS index of PR entries: shows William Bealey mar Elizabeth Vogwill (I haven't yet seen actual entry)

      Whitchurch is about 28 miles from Kingsteignton, and only about half a miles less from Teigngrace. So how did William from the Kingsteignton / Teigngrace area meet Elizabeth from the Whitchurch area?

      William's older sister Jane had got married in 1816 to one Henry Vogwell; Henry was the uncle of William's bride so I guess it was through his sister Jane that William met Elizabeth.

      But of course this then creates the question: how had Jane from the Kingsteignton / Teigngrace area met Henry from the Whitchurch area?

    Journey to the pits
    Ancestors travelled from Norfolk and even further from Devon to become coal miners in Co. Durham - but my grandfather reversed his grandfather's actions by running away from mining to go to sea.
