    From 1871 to 1911  Lower Street, Dartmouth, 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 
    • Lodging with his aunt in Hanover Square in 1871 - not clear where he was working; but I suspect it was for his father's cousin, John Pike, who was a cordwainer in Lower Street.
      All subsequent census entries shows Thomas in Lower St. and 1911 census shows this is where he worked and also shows him as an employer. I suspect he took over the business after John Pike died in 1877.

    • Living in Lower St, Dartmouth (1881, 1890, 1901 & 1911 - in latter shown as 4 rooms). These 4 rooms must have included the cordwainer's business as Thomas is shown as working at home.

    Bequest A third of £50

    • When his uncle Thomas Efford Issell wrote his will in 1870 he left £50 to be shared between Thomas, his brother Robert and cousin Thomas Efford Issell, but only after his (TEI's) wife's death. This didn't occur until 1884.
