This parish is in the north-east of Cornwall, south of Bude, on the Bude to Boscastle road. The name has Saxon origins, 'holy place of St James', Jacobus being the Latin for James. It is an unspoilt mainly agricultural area. By the 1871 census, there were 445 inhabitants and the parish covers 4467 acres. At that date, there are at least 6 Uglow families in the village, farming between  them about 700+ acres.

The early provenance

Unlike Marhamchurch and Bodmin, there are no  good records showing Uglow settlement in Jacobstow prior to the early 18th century. There is a record for John 1658, son of John, born in the village but this remains the only 17th century trace. However by the mid-18th century, there were at least 4 Uglow families in the village who were bearing children. 

Family 2: John and Grace Wells

John marries Grace Wells in 1752 in Jacobstow. Grace is probably the daughter of Richard and Grace Wells and was born in Jacobstow in 1732.  Identifying John is more of a problem:

  1. John 1715 son of Nicholas and Joan (seen as most likely by Bill Uglow but quite old??)
  2. John 1732 is born in Bideford, son of Richard and Mary Orchard. It is probable that this is the John who dies in 1810, aged 78, and is buried in Marhamchurch. 

Less likely:

  1. John 1728 is the son of  John and Grace Gillard - although he probably marries Ann Ridgman
  2. John 1727 is born in Stratton, the son of John and Ann Call - although he probably marries Mary Symons in 1755 in Launcells

But to call them a Jacobstow family is stretching it - in the next 22 years, there are records for John and Grace as the parents of:

- in Marhamchurch

  • daughter Anne 1753 born in Marhamchurch - she marries John Cloake in Poundstock in 1782 - Nancy Cloake is born there in 1789. [But see Ann 1756 in Stratton]
  • daughter Mary 1755 born in Marhamchurch
  • daughter Susanna 1774 born in Marhamchurch. It is likely that this is the Susannah who  has an illegitimate daughter Fanny 1796 but then marries the father Thomas Stacey in 1797 -  both these events are in Poundstock
- in Poundstock
  • son Richard 1757 born in Poundstock - marries Mary Smetham - Marhamchurch Family 10. (from Bill Uglow's records)
  • John 1759 born in Poundstock (from Bill Uglow's records). He marries Thomasin Gregory - North Petherwin Family 1
  • daughter Grace in 1761 born in Poundstock - she dies in Jacobstow in 1764
- in Jacobstow
  • son William 1763 born in Jacobstow - probably dies in 1766 as another William arrives in 1770?
  • son Thomas 1765 born in Jacobstow. Thomas marries Mary Guy in Poundstock in 1784 - Lewannick Family 1.
  • daughter Sarah 1768 born in Jacobstow. She marries  Andrew Horrill in Poundstock in 1791 - son Edmund in 1798. She dies in 1851
  • son William 1770 born in Jacobstow - he marries Mary Jenkin - Marhamchurch Family 11.

John and Grace may not be the same couple but, given the proximity of the birth dates, possibly they moved around.....

Family 3: John and Grace Gillard/Katherine Auger

John 1698 is born in St Gennys, the son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Short and the grandson of Richard and Elizabeth Braund in Marhamchurch.

First marriage:

John marries Grace Gillard in 1727 -Otterham Family 1. The children are born in Otterham but then the couple appear to move to Jacobstow as Grace dies in 1731 and is buried in Jacobstow.

Second marriage:

In 1733, John remarries to Katherine Auger in St Gennys. Katherine was born in 1690 in St Mabyn - her father was Degorie and her mother, May Roose. John dies in 1766 and Katherine in 1781 - both are buried in Jacobstow. 

  • son George 1734 born in Jacobstow. John 1921 suggests that he marries Elizabeth Mark in 1752 and is a miller in Week St Mary Family 1.
  • son William 1737 born in Jacobstow. In 1764 he marries Frances Jolliffe - Jacobstow Family 5a

Family 3a: John and Ann Ridgman

John 1728 is born in Otterham, the son of  John and Grace Gillard and the grandson of Nicholas and Elizabeth Short. He marries Ann Ridgman in 1754 - the marriage record gives his birthdate as 'about 1734'. Ann may have been a widow, born Ann Jolliffe in Jacobstow in 1729 but married a Mr Ridgman. Ann was the daughter of John and Margaret Jolliffe from Jacobstow and the first cousin of Frances Jolliffe who marries John's half-brother, William - Family 5a in Jacobstow Ann dies in 1789

John remarries Mary Prout in 1793 - again a widow, having been born a Bawden.

  • son John 1755 born in Jacobstow but died in 1761
  • son William 1759 born in Jacobstow. In 1784 in St Gennys he marries Jane Bray - Jacobstow Family 4b 
  • daughter Grace 1761 born in Jacobstow but dies in 1763
  • son John Jolliffe 1764 born in Jacobstow. He marries Agnes Orchard (1754-1837) in 1802 in Week St Mary.  A late marriage and there's no evidence of any children. John is named as a trustee for his brother William's children. John Jolliffe dies in 1836 in Jacobstow and Agnes a year later.  John's will confirms that there are no children - his brother Edward is the executor.
  • daughter Ann 1767 born in Jacobstow. In July 1793 she marries Thomas Jewell in Jacobstow. Thomas is the son of William Jewell (yeoman and churchwarden of St.Genny's church). They are well-to-do farmers. Thomas is named as a trustee for his brother in law William's children and Ann Jewell is named in the will of her brother, John Jolliffe. Ann dies in 1839 - there is a MI in St Gennys.
  • daughter Margaret 1769 born in Jacobstow but dies young in 1792
  • son Edward 1775 born in Jacobstow and marries Margery Hoskyn - Family 3c

Family 3c: Edward and Margery Hoskyn

Edward 1775, born in Jacobstow, is the son of John and Ann Ridgman and the grandson of  John and Grace Gillard.  He marries Margery Hoskyn in Tremaine in 1796.  Margery was born in June 1775 in Tremaine, the daughter of John Hoskyn and Mary Baker.

One interesting digression is Margery's ancestry: Dallas Manicom has researched this family thoroughly and tells us that Mary Baker was born in 1757 was the daughter of John Baker and Margery Hambly who were married 1754. John Baker was the son of William Baker and Mary Treweeks married 1716 in Jacobstow. However, less reliably, the IGI has a pedigree file that suggests that  Margery Hoskyn's great grandmother is not Mary Treweeks but Mary Matthews, born in St Giles, Cripplegate in London before marrying a Cornishman in 1721.  The Matthews are long-term Londoners - odd to end up in Cornwall?   

Anyway, Edward and Margery were stout Methodists - son John's obituary mentions that preaching and other classes were held at the parental farmhouse at Broad Langdon, Jacobstow. Margery dies in 1827 and is buried in Jacobstow. In 1828, we find Edward selling some fields on a long lease:

Parties: 1) Edward Uglow, yeoman, Jacobstowe 2)Samuel Langford, yeoman, Lesneweth 3) William Cann, yeoman, Ashwater, Devon Lease and release by 1) to 3), at the agreement of 2), of Higher and Middle Black Post fields in Broad Langdon and Lower Black Post in Sutton's tenement, currently in occupation of 2). Term: 500 years Consideration: £130 from 3) to 1) and ten shillings from 3) to 2) Rent: one peppercorn Witnesses: Arthur Smale, James Uglow.

Edward dies in 1855 and is buried in Jacobstow. A prosperous family and Edward leaves substantial parcels of land to each of the five boys - they end up as substantial farmers with nearly 1000 acres between them at the time of the 1871 census.

  • daughter Ann 1797 is born in Tremaine. She marries Thomas Hooper in August 1826. He is a Jacobstow farmer, born in 1788 in Marhamchurch. At the 1871 census, Thomas is still a farmer with his son, Thomas, born in 1829. There are two grandchildren.
    Ann is left 10 and a 5 annuity in her father's will. She dies in 1873 and her husband a year later. [Dallas Manicom can provide much more material on this branch.]
  • daughter  Margery 1799 is born in Jacobstow. She marries Richard Jolliffe in March 1824. Richard was born in 1801. They emigrate to US in 1844,  accompanied by her first cousin and his wife, Edward and Mary Ebbott, and a John Uglow(?) to Wisconsin, USA in 1844 - Emigrant Group US2.  She is left 10 in her father's will. Richard dies in 1864 and Margery dies in Palmyra, Wisconsin in 1882. (source: Jean Jolliffe)
  • son  John 1802 is born in Jacobstow. He marries Mary Northey - Family 3diii
  • son Edward 1805 is born in Jacobstow. Edward of Broad Langdon - in 1841, he is living there with servants. In 1855, Edward's father leaves him Spry's Tenement, Cocks' Tenement and Zetton's Tenement at Broad Langdon. In 1861, we find Edward at Langdon farming 145 acres. Also there is Loveday Sanders, a 50 year old unmarried housekeeper and 4 younger servants. Also staying is brother Simon's daughter, Ann 1851.
    Edward was unmarried. He is mentioned in the will of his uncle, John Jolliffe. He dies in 1868 and is buried in Jacobstow.
  • daughter Mary 1808 is born in Jacobstow. She dies young either in 1809 or 1812
  • son William 1810 is born in Jacobstow. He  marries Margaret Turner Colwill - Warbstow Family 3a 
  • son Simon 1813 is born in Jacobstow. He marries Rebecca Moyse - Family 3div
  • daughter Mary 1819. She dies unmarried in 1851 - she is included on brother Simon's MI in Jacobstow church as aged 32. There is no record of birth.
  • daughter Grace 1816 is born in Jacobstow. She marries Richard Pierce in the village in 1838. Their first child is Edward Uglow Pierce born 1838. The family emigrate to US in 1841. They first lived in Jackson County, Michigan then in 1848 moved to Jefferson County, Wisconsin where Richard P. Pierce was a member of the board of supervisors and a justice of the peace as well as township trustee. In 1867 Richard and Grace moved their family to Chickasaw County, Iowa. In 1880, they are in Richland, Chickasaw County, Iowa with their sons, Edwin born 1855 and Frank born1860. They stay in Chickasaw County where Richard died on 17 July, 1890 and Grace (Uglow) Pierce died 6 Dec 1906. The Pierces were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church and were in the dairy business, having the only herd of Devonshire cattle known in the US in the early 1880's. In 1855 Grace is left £10 in her father's will. [Information from Jackie Pierce Foster]
  • son Samuel Jolliffe 1823 is born in Jacobstow. He marries Hannah Baker - Family 3dv

Family 3eii: William and Wilmet Winnacott

William 1841 is born in Warbstow, the son of Nicholas and Grace Uglow, the grandson of William and Jane Bray from Jacobstow on his mother's side and of  William and Ann Chapman on his father's side. At the time of the 1851 census, he is living, aged 10, in Warbstow.  He marries Wilmet Winnacott (born 1842 in Kilkhampton) in 1870

  • as yet unnamed daughter 1871 born in Jacobstow

He is working as a farm labourer in the village: source 1871 census. But he moves south to Merther, a village just outside Truro - Family 1a

 Family 3diii: John and Mary Northey

John 1802 is born in Jacobstow, the son of of Edward and Margery Hoskyn and the grandson of John and Ann Ridgman. He marries Mary Northey in May, 1837 in St Clether. She is born in Altarnun in 1806 and it is probable that her parents were Richard and Mary.  Northey is quite a common Altarnun name at this time. [However on the 1861 census Mary is described as born in Otterham and Edward (68) and Sarah Northey, possibly Mary's cousin, are living at Bickhavens, Jacobstow, very close to Tobarn]

 In the 1841 census, John is already farming at Tobarn with Mary and 3 year old, John. In the 1851 census, John is described as a farmer of 300 acres. He was an upright Methodist, founder of the chapel at Headon (Eden?).

When John's father, Edward, dies in 1855, he inherits the lands at Penwenham in Warbstow and Trebarn (Tobarn) at Jacobstow. Both were subject to a mortgage.

In 1861, the family is living at Tobarn where John is farming 250 acres and employing 2 labourers and a boy. Mary is described as born in Otterham. Son John is living with his parents.

By 1871 they are farming 300 acres at Tobarn, Jacobstow. But John suffers personal tragedy - his wife dies in 1872 and his only son,  John Jolliffe 1838, who was by now running the farm of 90 acres in Warbstow,  kills himself at his father's house on the day of his mother's funeral. John manages the estate and helps John Jolliffe's widow, Philippa, with the 7 grandchildren.

John himself dies in 1874 and is buried in Jacobstow. You can read his obituary (thanks to Dallas Manicom). 

  • son John Jolliffe 1838 is born in Jacobstow and is with his parents at Tobarn in 1861. He marries Philippa Symons about 1861 - see Family 5 Warbstow

Family 3div: Simon and Rebecca Moyse and Mary Doidge

Simon 1813 is the son of of Edward and Margery Hoskyn and the grandson of John and Ann Ridgman

He marries Rebecca Moyse in the village in April 1837. Rebecca is born  in 1814 in St Clether. In 1841, they are living at Higher Langdon, with Margery and Edward. His first cousin, Edward, farms next door...

In his father's will in 1855, Simon is left the estate of Winslet Moors in Jacobstow.

Rebecca dies in 1856 aged 42, perhaps after the birth of twins, Rebecca and William. William dies in infancy but his sister survives. Rebecca is buried in the village.

After Rebecca's death, Simon re-marries in 1858 in St Stephens by Saltash. His second wife is Mary Doidge, who is born in 1811 in Jacobstow and who died in 1884 in Jacobstow.

In the 1861 census, Simon is farming 150 acres at Higher Langdon - Mary is with him and most of the children. Mary Moyse 77 is visiting - presumably Simon's ex mother-in-law? Samuel Doidge is also living with them - is this Simon's new brother-in-law? Also present is granddaughter Mary Rebecca at 3 months - since none of the children are married at this point, Mary is presumably illegitimate - she's still with her grandparents in 1871 and, assuming she's more likely to stay with her mother's parents, Margery Hoskyn looks the likeliest

By the 1871 census Simon and Mary are farming 200 acres in the village. He dies in 1892 and is buried in the village.

  • daughter Margery Hoskyn 1838 born in Jacobstow. She is present on the 1841, 1851 and 1861 census - although referred to as Margery Hicks in 1841.

    It seems probable that Margery has an illegitimate daughter Mary Rebecca in 1860. Mary is brought up by her grandparents. She's staying with them, Simon and Mary, at the time of the 1861 and 1871 census. Assuming she's more likely to stay with her mother's parents, Margery looks the likeliest mother. Note also that Mary Rebecca does not go to Wisconsin with the rest of the family and neither does Margery. Instead Mary marries Edwin Littlejohns in 1879 and they are at Withevan, Jacobstow, in 1881, along with his mother, his brother and sisters and their child, Rhoda. They're still there in 1891 with four more children - but the names give no clue to Mary's parentage.

    In 1865, Margery marries John Hicks. Presumably John is related to Edward's wife, Norah? I also presume that John is unwilling to have Mary Rebecca live with them? The 1871 census records that John and Margery are grocers in Jacobstow but by 1881, they farm at Trelay, St Gennys and have at least 6 children. In the 1881 census, her parents are living with her in St Gennys - and in the 1891 census, we find her looking after her widowed father, Simon aged 76. In 1901, Margery is still farming in St Gennys, although she is now widowed.

  • son Edward 1840. He is present on the 1841 and 1861 census. He marries Norah Hicks in 1864? Presumably Norah is related to Margery Hoskyn's husband, John? They farm in St Gennys - Family 7
  • son Samuel Jolliffe 1843 - he is present on the 1861 census as Samuel P.? He marries Grace Hicks born in 1828 in St Gennys - presumably related to John and Norah Hicks, the spouses of Margery and Edward? They farm in Jacobstow for a short period - Family 3eiv
  • son Simon 1845 - born in Jacobstow. He is present on the 1861 census. He emigrates with brother John Jolliffe to US in 1869, returns to marry  Elizabeth Jane Painter, born in 1855. They wed in Jacobstow in 1874 before returning to Wisconsin in 1875. They go steerage and dock in New York aboard SS Arragon on 29th October 1875 with daughter Margery who is less than 3 months old. They are to be found in Jefferson, Wisconsin in 1880 where Simon is a labourer - Emigrant US Group 3. Eliza's siblings are also emigrants. Elizabeth dies in 1897. Simon remarries and dies in1929 in Wisconsin.  
    • daughter Margery Louisa born 1875 in Jacobstow and travels with her parents to Wisconsin
    • daughter Edith born 1877 in Jefferson
  • daughter Mary 1848 born in Jacobstow. She appears on the 1851 census, with her parents but she dies in 1854
  • daughter Ann 1851 - in 1861, she is staying with uncle Edward. She marries William Sloman, a farm worker, in March 1871. They are living with her parents in 1871 but by 1881, they are farming 140 acres at Witheven, Jacobstow with three daughters and a son. In 1901, they are farming at Marhamchurch.

  • son John Jolliffe 1854 - born in Jacobstow, he is on the 1861 and 1871 censuses. He emigrates with brother Simon to US in 1869, returns with him and marries Victoria Jane Dymond in Jacobstow in November 1875. She was born in 1853 in St Juliot, Cornwall. They are to be found farming at Three Fields, Jacobstow in 1881 with Victoria's 8 year old sister, Harriett, visiting them. But in August 1881, the family finally emigrate to Wisconsin to join Simon. Travelling steerage with widowed brother, Samuel, they arrive in New York on 17th August 1881 with son Simon and infant daughter, Edith. Victoria dies in Wisconsin in 1923 and John in 1933 - Emigrant US Group 3
    • son Simon Jolliffe 1877 born in Jacobstow
    • daughter Edith E 1880 born in Jacobstow
    • daughter Cora 1883 born in Wisconsin
    • daughter Pearl 1885 born in Wisconsin
    • daughter Maud Stella 1891 born in Wisconsin

  • son William 1856 - born in Jacobstow on 27th September 1856 but dies within two weeks. He is twin to Rebecca
  • daughter Rebecca 1856 - born in Jacobstow on 27th September 1856 and is twin to William.  She is with father, Simon, and stepmother, Mary at Higher Langdon in 1861 and 1871. On 19th December 1878 she marries Richard Bridgman in Jacobstow - he was born in 1851 in North Petherwin. In 1881 Richard and Rebecca are living and farming at Tascott, North Petherwin with Richard's parents. They have a son, William, born 1880. In 1884, they have another son, Richard Uglow Bridgman. In 1901, they are farming at Downicary, near Coombe Mill in Devon. They have 6 sons and 2 daughters.

Family 3eiv: Samuel Jolliffe and Grace Hicks

Samuel Jollliffe 1843 was born in Jacobstow, son of Simon and Rebecca Moyse and  the grandson of Edward and Margery Hoskyn.

Like his sister, Margery, and brother, Edward, he married a Hicks from St Gennys. This was Grace Hicks, the daughter of Thomas and Joanna Hicks, farmers at Treley, St Gennys. In 1861 she was with her parents. She was born about 1844 in Stratton RD.

They married in March 1870. By 1871, he was farming 40 acres in the village. However Grace died tragically young in 1873 - there is an MI in Jacobstow church. In 1881, Samuel was to be found at Witheven, Jacobstow where he is working on the farm of William Sloman, his brother-in-law. In August 1881, he emigrated, travelling on the SS Devon with brother John Jolliffe and family. Travelling steerage on the SS Devon from Bristol, they arrived in New York on 17th August 1881 and thence to Wisconsin - Emigrant US Group 3. He died in Wisconsin in 1915.

Family 3dv: Samuel Jolliffe and Hannah Maria Baker

Samuel Jolliffe 1823 was the son of of Edward and Margery Hoskyn and the grandson of John and Ann Ridgman.

Samuel was the youngest son by some distance but he appears to have been favoured - he was named the sole executor of his father's will in 1855.  He was left Broad Parks, Hasland, Langdon Marsh, Little Cawker Field in Jacobstow and Clerks Tenement and Woods Tenement at Broad Langdon as well as the remainder of the lease at Warbston Borough.

Samuel married Hannah Maria Baker in 1854 in Week St Mary. She was born in Week St Mary in 1833 - she was the sister of Richard Baker of Whiteleigh Farm, Week St Mary who marries Samuel's niece, Olympia, the daughter of Samuel's brother, William.

In 1861, Samuel was at Langdon, farming 230 acres and employing 5 labourers. At home was Hannah with the three eldest - John, Samuel and Thomas. Wife Hannah has Grace Uglow, the daughter of Thomas and Arminel Metherell, to help her.

By the 1871 census, Samuel was still farming in the village but now it was only 170 acres. In 1881, it was much the same - he was farming 175 acres at Broad Langdon, Jacobstow. All the children were living at home with the exception of John Jolliffe who was now married. Samuel's great niece, Phillippa 1863 from Warbstow, was also living with him.

By 1901, Samuel and Hannah were living by themselves at Broad Langdon - Samuel was retired. Hannah died in 1903 and Samuel died in 1905 - there's a MI at Eden.

  • son John Jolliffe 1855 born in Warbstow. He married Elizabeth Bailey in 1880 - Week St Mary Family 6

  • son Samuel Henry 1857 born in Warbstow. He married Ellen Jane Bate in 1881 - Family 3dvi

  • son Thomas Baker 1860 born in Jacobstow. He was baptised as a baptist at his parents' house at Broad Langdon on 21st February 1860. He married his cousin Mary 1861 in the village in November in 1885. There is no sign of children. In the 1881 census, he was at Broad Langdon and in 1891 at Loudgworthy, Bridgerule. In both censuses and in the 1889 Kelly's Directory of Devon, he was described as a farmer. However he was recorded as a 'surveyor of the highway' on his marriage record in 1885 and in the late 1890s, there was a dramatic change of direction - in the 1901 census (where he is to be found as EGLOW) he was the master of the workhouse at Rough Tor House, Lanteglos in Camelford and Mary was the matron. They were still working there both in the 1911 census and again in 1914 Kelly's Directory.

    Thomas died in 1928 and Mary in 1939 - there's an MI at Eden.


  • son Edward 1862 born in Jacobstow. He always was involved in the farm at Broad Langdon. By 1901, his parents, Samuel and Hannah, had retired. Edward was farming Broad Langdon with brother, Richard. After his parents' death, he married Felinda Dinnis in Warbstow in 1907. This is a late marriage for both of them - in the 1901 census she was the unmarried daughter of William of Trennannick, Warbstow, born in 1861 in North Petherwin.

    In 1911, they still farm at Broad Langdon. Felinda died in 1941 and Edward died in 1943 - there's an MI at Eden. 


  • daughter Margery Hannah 1864 born in Jacobstow. She married John Bayly (the brother of her brother, John's wife, Elizabeth). They had 4 children - for more details, contact Dallas Manicom

  • son Richard 1865 born in Jacobstow. In 1881 he was living with his parents at Broad Langdon and in 1901 he was farming Broad Langdon with brother, Edward.

Family 3dvi: Samuel Henry and Ellen Jane Bate

Samuel Henry 1857 is the son of Samuel Jolliffe and Hannah Maria Baker and the grandson of of Edward and Margery Hoskyn. He is born in Warbstow.

In 1871 and 1881, he is living with his parents in Jacobstow. He marries Ellen Jane Bate in 1881. She was born in Tresmeer in 1857. They farm at Minster - maybe not the most generous of employers:

The Law of Farmer and Servant - At the Camelford Petty Sessions, on Thursday, before Prebendary Kinsman, Rev. J.P. Cann, R.J. Roe, and Mr. Braddon, a case of considerable interest to agriculturists was heard. Samuel Henry Uglow, farmer, residing at Minster, was summoned by his servant, a lad named Richard George Cann, of Tintagel, for 12s.6d., which plaintiff alleged to be due for wages from March 30th to April 28th of the present year. from the statement of plaintiff, which was corroberated by his mother and a young man named William Baker, who was in the employ of Mr. Uglow, it appeared that the defendant came to Cann's house, in company with Baker, whom he had just engaged, to ask Cann to enter his service. Cann, a lad of 15 or 16 years of age, agreed to do so for the sum of £7 10s. per year. His mother said to Mr. Uglow, "He can come, like Arthur, for a month to try it," and this the three witnesses confidently affirmed was the understanding arrived at. Upon the expiration of 28 days Baker left and was paid. Cann also left, but his master refused to pay him any wages, saying that he had agreed with him for 12 months, and unless he remained that time he would receive no wages. Mr. Uglow, in defence, contended that no agreement as to a month's trial was entered into. After the arrangement was made Mrs. Cann made some remark about a month, but he did not remember what it was. He contended, also, that even if an agreement for a month on trial was made the boy did not fulfil it, as the fact of his (complanant's) having charged a twelfth of £7 10s. showed that a calendar month was understood. The Bench, after re-calling Baker, who confidently repeated his former statement as to hearing Mrs. Cann say, in Mr. Uglow's hearing, that her boy should go for a month and try it, gave their verdict for complainant for 11s. 6d.
[The West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser 19 May 1887]

In 1901, Samuel is a farmer at North Beer, just west of Boyton.

Ellen dies in 1926 and Samuel marries again - to Lucy Edith.  Samuel dies in 1937 - there's an MI at Eden.

  • son Samuel John 1883 born in Warbstow. He marries in 1908 to Mary Ann Palmer - Family 3dvii
  • daughter Arrabella 1885 born in Warbstow. She marries Thomas Baker in 1908. Thomas was born in Werrington, Devon in 1882. The couple farm at North Beer, Boyton, obviously close to Arabella's parents - at the 1911 census, Arabella's mother is staying with them. Their first child is Ellen Maud born in 1910. A son, Thomas, is born in 1913.

In 1891 and 1901 he is with his parents at North Beer, Boyton. He marries in 1908 to Mary Ann Palmer, probably born in Werrington in 1885. In 1911, Mary Ann's mother, Elizabeth Palmer, widowed, is farming Pool Farm, Werrington - we know this as Winifred is staying with her grandmother. It's quite an extended family as there is Elizabeth, her two other daughters, her son as well as her sister and brother in law, all living at the farm.

In 1911, Samuel and Mary are living at Lewannick. They have 3 children under 4, with Gladys and Henry living with them but Winifred is away at her granny's house. Samuel is a farmer and Kellys directory 1914 has him as a farmer at North Beer. Possibly quite prosperous as the 1911 census has 4 live-in servants including a 13 year old Annie Penrose as a child's maid? Samuel dies in 1963 and Mary Ann in 1971 - they are buried at Boyton Methodist Chapel.

Samuel dies in 1963 in Holsworthy. Mary Ann dies in 1971.

Jane is mentioned as William's widow in the will of her brother in law, John Jolliffe. She is living with her son, Edward, at Higher Langdon in 1841, aged 77. She died in 1846 in Jacobstow.

His will in 1809 confirms that there are 4 surviving daughters, Jane, Ann, Grace and Mary and 3 surviving sons, Edward, William and Thomas. William's wife, Jane, is the executor. He also mentions his brother, John Jolliffe and his brother in law, Thomas Jewell, who is married to his sister, Ann.

  • daughter Jan(e) 1785 - born in Jacobstow. She is bequeathed £40 by . her father in 1809. She marries Samuel Doidge also in 1809 in Jacobstow. Samuel is possibly born in 1783 in Jacobstow, the son of Thomas and Grase Deodge. The marriage is proved by daughter Mary and husband Samuel being mentioned in the will of her uncle, John Jolliffe. Jane is not mentioned in uncle John's will and is thus likely to have died before 1834.

  • son Thomas 1795 - born in Jacobstow but dies in 1799

  • daughter Grace 1800 born in Jacobstow. She is bequeathed £40 by her father in 1809. She marries Nicholas Uglow in 1823 in the village. The marriage is proved by Grace and Nicholas being mentioned in the will of her uncle, John Jolliffe. This is possibly Nicholas who died in 1861, aged 56, buried in Warbstow. They live in Warbstow - Family 6a.
  • son Edward 1803 born in Jacobstow. He marries Mary Ebbott in 1825 - Family 4ci 
  • son Thomas 1805 born in Jacobstow but dies aged 12 in 1817 and is buried in Jacobstow. His father would have left him £300 at the age of 21. [If this date of death is wrong, possibly marries Grace Medland in Stratton in 1833  [Family 10 - Stratton]]
  • daughter Mary 1807 born in Jacobstow - she is bequeathed £40 by her father. She marries James Perkin, the blacksmith, in the village in February 1828.

In 1841, the family is in Higher Langdon - all the children (except Edward, yet to be born) and mother, Jane, now 77. His first cousin, Simon, farms next door...

Despite being well off (?) Edward and Mary emigrate in 1844, probably with the children as there are no records of marriages for Janes or Mary Annes at the relevant time. They were accompanied by his first cousin and her husband, Margery and Richard Jolliffe, and a John Uglow(?) to Wisconsin, USA in 1844 - Emigrant Group US2 (Source: Jean Jolliffe). 

They appear to be grouped around Jefferson County, a favourite Uglow resort. Mary dies in 1864 but in 1880, Edward is still a farmer at Sullivan, Jefferson, Wisconsin. Edward dies in Wisconsin in 1882 and he and Mary are buried at Melendy Prairie Cemetery, Eagle Township, Waukesha County, Wisconsin

  • daughter Jane 1826 born in Jacobstow. She is in Higher Langdon with her parents in 1841. She marries John Ward (1823-1880) in July 1847, almost certainly in Wisconsin. Jane dies in Jefferson County in 1910 and is buried at Siloam Cemetery, Palmyra Township, Jefferson County

  • daughter Wilmot 1832 born in Jacobstow. She is in Higher Langdon with her parents in 1841. She marries Christopher Lean (1830-1912), probably in Wisconsin. However she dies early in 1856 and is buried in Melendy's Prarie Cemetery, Eagle, Waukesha Co, Wisconsin.

Family 4cii: William and Ann Orchard 

William 1793 is born in Jacobstow and is the son of William and Jane Bray and the grandson of John and Ann Ridgman

He is bequeathed Honey's Tenement in Broad Langdon by his father. In October 1815 he marries Ann Orchard in Jacobstow - the witnesses were John Jolliffe Uglow and  Thomas Pearse. Ann was born in 1788. They live at Tredarrup in Warbstow.

The family is mentioned in his uncle, John Jolliffe's, will in 1836 - John confirms that his brother William is dead but mentions his widow, Jane. He also talks of William and Ann, his wife, daughters Ann and Lucretia.

William dies in 1834 and is buried in Jacobstow.  His will mentions his daughters, Ann and Lucretia and his wife. But the key estates at Tredarrup, Honey's Tenement in Broad Langdon and the fields called Lampers Hill and White Ham in Jacobstow go to a cousin, William 1810, son of Edward and Margery Hoskyn who later marries Margaret Turner Colwill - Warbstow Family 3a - and they are found living at Tredarrup in 1851.

Ann is living with her daughter Ann Jolliffe and her husband Daniel Bailey in 1851 as an annuitant in Clawton and she dies there in 1858 but is buried in Jacobstow.

Frances dies in 1816 and is buried in Jacobstow.

  • daughter Jane 1764 born in Jacobstow. In 1786 she marries John Vosper in 1786. John was born in 1761 in Laneast. She dies in Tresmeer in 1839 and John dies there in 1841
  • son John 1767 born in Jacobstow. He marries Grace Doidge - Jacobstow Family 5bi. Grace dies in 1798 and John re-marries - Susan/Sarah Bray in St Clement in 1822 - Kenwyn Family 1 . Between these two marriages, he might father a son:

    • son Richard 1812 born in Tresmeer. Richard 1791, was working as a saddler in Tresmeer and this apparently links well to Richard 1812 being his son. BUT Richard names "John Uglow" as his father when he married Marie Johnston in 1853. This suggests that Richard 1791 was his uncle and that John was his father.

      Richard joined the 32nd Foot Regiment in 1831 in Launceston and from 1832-5, served in India and then in Canada. He also serves in Ireland as in 1853 in Lisburn, Ireland, he married Marie Ann Johnston of Lisburn. They emigrated to Ontario,where they have children.
      Richard dies in Toronto in 1876

      • son Richard 1854 (a stationer in Wellington Ward, Ottawa in 1881)
      • son William 1859 (who may be a fancy goods retailer and bookseller on Main St, Winnipeg in 1887).

  • daughter Catherine 1769 born in Jacobstow. She marries Samuel Baker in 1790. He was born in 1764. He dies in 1845 in Jacobstow.
  • daughter Grace 1773 born in Jacobstow. She marries Thomas Dinner in 1794 in Jacobstow. He may have been born in Tresmeer about 1762. Grace dies in Tresmeer in 1848
  • daughter Martha 1775. In 1797 she marries William Trease in Jacobstow - the witnesses were John Jolliffe and William Baker. William Trease was born in 1771, probably the son of Peter Trease and Ann Mathews. Martha and William's son, John, is born in Poundstock in 1797 and son William is born in Jacobstow in 1802. There is also a daughter, Frances. When son William applied to join the excise in 1824, the sureties were Thomas Dinner, Martha's brother in law and brother Richard Uglow who is described as a saddler from Tresmeer. Martha dies in 1855 and William in 1856.
  • daughter Frances 1780 born in Jacobstow. She marries Stephen Bray 1799 in the village. He was born in 1771 in Launcells. There is a Freebmd record for Frances Bray who dies in Stratton RD in 1840.

He marries Rachel Pearce in Egloskerry in 1832. She was born 1803 in Sheepwash, Devon. In 1841, they are living in Egloskerry and Richard is described as a saddler. There is no sign of them in the 1851 census and it is likely that they have emigrated to Ontario with son, William. They appear on the Ontario census in 1861 - Richard has died by 1881 but Rachel, a Bible Christian, is living with her son, William, a farmer. She dies in Putmanville, Ontario in 1883
    • son William 1833 born in Jacobstow. He emigrated to Ontario and married a Scots woman, Almira Ann.

Family 5bi: John and Grace Doidge

John 1767 was born in Jacobstow and is the son of William and Frances Jolliffe and the grandson of John and Katherine Augur. He marries Grace Doidge in Jacobstow in1792. Grace dies in Jacobstow in 1798 and John moves to Truro where he marries Susan/Sarah Bray in St Clement in 1822 - Kenwyn Family 1

[This pattern of events is based on the 1841 census - there are 2 families in Truro, one of which is definitely son, William. The other one has a 70 year old John with a 50 year old Sarah - looks like a second marriage and it's a reasonable inference that this John is John 1767.]

  • daughter Catherine 1793 is born in Jacobstow. In 1817 she marries Robert Oliver in Tresmeer. Robert was a labourer and was christened on Dec 25 1783 in Bridestowe Devon England. They have four children. Robert died, probably 1849, in Bridestowe and Catherine dies in 1868, also in Bridestow. (Thanks to Dallas Manicom, we have more on this family: read here)
  • son William 1796: almost certainly a watchmaker and jeweller in Truro, married first to Mary and then to Ann, where he dies in 1865 and is buried - Kenwyn Family 2 (It is possible that this in Cullompton and Newton Abbot where he is married to Mary Broom -Cullompton Family 1)

Families 6, 7 and 8 deleted

Family 9: Nicholas and Jane Tom 

Nicholas 1834 is born in Warbstow, the son of Nicholas and Grace Uglow, the grandson of William and Jane Bray from Jacobstow on his mother's side and of  William and Ann Chapman on his father's side.  He marries Jane Tom in Jacobstow in  1859. Jane was born in Poundstock in 1835, the daughter of Thomas and Mary Tom.

In 1861, the couple are living at Tor Hill in Jacobstow and Nicholas is described as a farm labourer. In the 1871 census, they are still in Jacobstow - now Nicholas is a farmer.

In 1881, he and Jane are living at Kents and Nicholas is again a farm labourer. He is quite close to Tobarn where John Jolliffe's widow, Phillippa, is farming. There are no children.

In 1891, nothing has changed except that Ernest 1881, Nicholas' nephew is with them. He is the son of William 1841 and Wilmot Wonnacott

In 1901, still nothing has changed - the address is Higher Kents but Nicholas is still recorded as a farm labourer.
