    • * NEEDS EDITING due to more info * I am guessing that Joseph spent most of his adult life in Kingsteignton. Though he was born and baptised in Teigngrace, he married in Kingsteignton, all his children were born there and he was there with his son William at the time of the 1841 census. His death in Wolborough probably indicates that he went to a family member or possibly the Workhouse to be cared for in his last illness.He may have spent some of his childhood in Kingsteignton too - although all his known siblings were baptised in Teigngrace, the last known was baptised in 1770 when he was 8, so the family may have moved after that, or he may have latter moved for work or on marrying.
    Poor Law Removal from Kingsteignton to Teigngrace 
    1807  Teigngrace, 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 
    • Removal order "Joseph Bailey, Elizabeth his wife and Mary Ann, 17, Susanna, 12, Diana, 10, William, 4, and Elizabeth, 1, their children to Teigngrace." (DHC document ref: 2565 A/PO 29/23; viewed at the DHC, 27 Jun 2019)

      Prior to their removal Joseph was examined to establish his legal place of settlement, which would have become his wife's on marriage and which his children would have inherited from him.
      "The Examination of Joseph Bailey now
      residing in the Parish of Kingsteignton in
      the said County, touching his Settlement, taken on Oath before us,
      the seventeenth Day of February 1807
        Who saith that he was born, as he hath heard and believes to
      be true, in the Parish of Teingrace
      in the said County of Devon 
      where his Parents then resided, and where legally settled, as he
      hath heard, and believes to be true;
      That he lived with his Father in Teingrace aforesaid
      untill he was about Twenty four years of Age
      Then he went into the parish of Kingsteignton aforesaid
      where he Married, and about three Years after he
      came Possessed of a Cot house in the said parish of
      Kingsteignton, on right of his Wife of the Yearly
      value of One pound five Shillings, The said Cot
      was Leasehold, and paid no Taxes, since which he
      sold the said Cot to his Brother, And that in the
      year one Thousand seven Hundred and ninety seven
      he purchased a Cot House of the Overseers of the
      Poor of the said parish of Kingsteignton, for the
      Possession of which he paid one Guinea and paid
      two Shillings P[er] Annum Land tax (but nothing to
      the Church or poor rates, but has been informed that
      the said Cot belonged to his Wife's Father
      And further saith he has done no act [by] which
      to gain a Settlement
      The Mark of
      Joseph + Bailey
      Taken and Sworn at Wolborough
    Residence to 1841  Kingsteignton, 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 
    • Sometime between 1807 and 1841 Joseph moved back from Teigngrace to Kingsteignton.
    Occupation Labourer 
    Kingsteignton, 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 
    • His death cert. simply records him as a labourer; the 1841 census does not show any occupation - presumbaly because aged 80 he was no longer working.
      If he lived most of his life in Kingsteignton this is likely to have been where he worked too.
    Died Cause: Decay of nature 
    14 Dec 1843  Wolborough, 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 
    • Died aged 85 (sic). Is this the right death? I think so, there was no other Joseph Bailey of about this age in this part of Devon judging by the 1841 census.

      GRO ref: Bailey, Joseph q4 1843 Newton A RD 10 121; GRO online index shows age at death as 85

    Buried 17 Dec 1843  St. Michael’s Church, Kingsteignton, 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 
    • The burial being in Kingsteignton rather than Wolborough adds more evidence that the deat was of this Joseph.
    Notes 
    • With son William and family in 1841 (no occupation / means given; age given as 80)

      Whilst most Bailey Teigngrace entries are this family, the Joseph who with his wife Elizabeth had a family there in the C19th was not the son of this Joseph, but of Joseph's brother William.
