Family 1: William and Kate Angove

William 1842 born in Lamerton. He is the son of Emanuel and Jane and the grandson of Thomas 1788 and Elizabeth Burden

In 1851 William is living with his parents in Lamerton. He moves away, like his brothers Thomas and John, but to Lancashire. Like his brothers, he works as a miner but a coal miner. There's no sign of him in the 1871 census but he's probably in Lancashire as he marries Kate Angove in Rochdale in June, 1873. The census records her as born in Redruth in 1848 - in 1871, she is a factory operative, living with her widowed mother, Ann, and siblings in Spotland in Rochdale.

In 1881, they live in Ince in Makerfield near Wigan - at 23 Ince Green Lane and her widowed mother and 16 year old sister, Edith, are both living with them.  William dies in 1883 and Catherine dies in 1885, both at Ince.

  • daughter Mary Jane 1875 born in Ince in Wakerfield. She marries Thomas Green in Ince in 1900. A year later in 1901, they are living at 11 Keble St, Ince. The family is still living there in 1911. Thomas is a coal miner. In 1908, they have a son, William Uglow Green. Mary Jane's sisters, Edith and Elizabeth Ann, are living with them in both the 1901 and 1911 censuses.

Family 2: John George and Elizabeth Fannon

John George 1844 born in Warbstow, the son of George and Mary Jenkins and the grandson of John and Jenny Chapman.

In 1851 he is in Downinney, Warbstow. His father has died and he is living with grandmother, Jenny, and mother, Mary, who is working as a schoolmistress. It's not easy to find John on the censuses in 1861 or 1871 but we know that he moves to Lancashire as in 1868 he marries Elizabeth Fannon in Chorlton. An IGI record tells us that Elizabeth was born in 1848, probably 3rd quarter, in Manchester.

He works as a cordwainer. The couple are not lucky - they have ten children, six of whom (including two sets of twins) die in infancy and Francis only lives until 36. In 1881, they live at 18 Moorhouse St. Salford and John George is working as a cordwainer. The 3 boys, Francis, Austin and Frederick, are with them as is Elizabeth's brother, Francis - a 42 year old bachelor and labouring at the gas works.

In 1891, they are at 16 Arthur St. - John is a shoemaker with their four sons. 1901, they are living at 40 Coomassie St., Pendleton in West Salford. John is still a bootmaker and Francis, Austin and Amos are living with them.

Elizabeth dies in 1901 (55) and John George in 1909, both in Salford RD.

Frederick describes himself as a stoker at Dyers(?).

The National Roll of the Great War has Frederick William (I assume that this is Frederick and not his son!) enlisting as a private in the Lancashire Volunteers, volunteering in May 1915. He went to France in January 1916 where he served at Richebourg-St Vaast, Neuve Chapelle, the Somme, Guillemont, Trones Wood and Arras - he was wounded at Arras, invalided home and discharged as medically unfit in 1918.

Family 3    Theodore Sebastian and Jane Elizabeth Nickless

Theodore Sebastian 1837 was born in Charlton Kings, the son of James and Ann from Cheltenham and the grandson of James 1770 and Lydia Steel from Stratton. 

In 1841, he is at St Mary's Cheltenham with his parents and in 1851 in Chacely, Gloucestershire, still with his parents. In 1861, he has embarked on a teaching career, teaching maths - he is living at 1 Bath Buildings, Oriel Walk in Cheltenham. The school is the Cheltenham Juvenile Proprietary School at Stamford House and under the headmaster, William Wilberforce Gedge, there were adverts in The Times 1860-1863 addressing applicants to Mrs Uglow, namely Ann, Theodore's mother. In 1861, Ann is living with her son, Theodore, who is a teacher of maths and a housemaster. Ann's sisters, Elizabeth and Emma, are also on the workforce!

This appears to have been a formal relationship - in the Bristol Mercury of 25th July 1863, we read of the dissolution of the partnership between T. Uglow and Elizabeth and Emma Jordan. This is obviously an arrangement between Theodore and his two unmarried aunts - the 'F' Jordan is a typo. They were in the business of 'boarding house keepers'. This step seems somewhat draconian - is this normal business or does it indicate friction in the family? We know that Theodore now turns his back on teaching and redirects his ambitions towards the church.

By Michaelmas term 1861, Theodore has already enrolled at Trinity College, Dublin (Freeman's Journal, Dublin 21st December 1861). He gained a BA in 1865. Is this by correspondence?

He was ordained as a deacon in 1864 (The Times 20th December ) and was appointed a curate at St Andrew, Droitwich (Jackson's Oxford Journal 11th March 1865). It was an eventful year as he was ordained a priest in December by the Bishop of Worcester (Belfast Newsletter 29th December 1865).

After Droitwich, he worked in Wellington, Shropshire - on 24th November 1869, we find him officiating at the marriage of Thomas Kerr and Jeanette Welsh at the parish church there. So it is no surprise, in 1870, that he married a girl from the town - Jane Elizabeth Nickless born in 1849 in Wellington.

In 1871, they were at Lindal, Dalton in Furness in Cumbria. He later went to the rather bleak Rampside Parsonage, Barrow in Furness - in 1881, they were at the parsonage with the family. Also there was his siste-in-law, Joseph Mainger's widow, Caroline, and her son, Leonard Percy who have come north after Joseph's death in 1876. There was also her other son, George but he is killed in a tragic accident when he drowns in a barrel in the yard at Rampside vicarage in 1879.

The family retired to West Derby, Liverpool by the end of the century - in 1891, the family were in Walton on the Hill, Liverpool. In 1894 they were at Esmond St, Anfield, Liverpool (Kellys Directory of Liverpool 1894). Theodore has gone back to teaching at Salisbury College, Stoneycroft, Liverpool (North Wales Chronicle 14th July 1894) - in the advert, he is described as the late assistant master at Cheltenham College. Jane died in 1898 and Theodore in 1900 at West Derby in Liverpool.

  • son Vincent Trathen 1871 born Ulverstone but died in 1877. Probably named after his uncle Vincent who died in New York in 1868
  • daughter Georgina Nellie 1879 was born in Barrow. In 1901 Georgina and Conrad were in Liverpool - at 4 Old Barn Road, Walton. There are just the 2 of them in the house but the census confusingly describes them as 'daughter' and ' son' of the family preceding. In 1911, Georgina is still with her brother and his wife - now at 23 Ludwig Rd, Liverpool - Georgina is a domestic house maid. She died in 1969 in Liverpool
  • son Conrad Spiring 1880 born in Barrow. He married in West Derby in 1902 but died in Liverpool in 1914 - Family 3a 

Family 3aConrad Spiring and Jane Brash Mawson

Conrad Spiring 1880 was born in Barrow. He is the son of Theodore Sebastian and Jane Elizabeth Nickless and the grandson of James 1813 and Ann.

By 1895, Georgina and Conrad are in Liverpool - at 4 Old Barn Road, Walton. In the Liverpool Mercury of 23rd July 1895, there is a report of an animal cruelty prosecution in which Conrad (but difficult to read and it might be his sister?) testifies. The house at Old Barn Road must have been quite big - he talks of looking out of his study window. They are still there in 1901 when Conrad is working as a groom in a stable. There are just the 2 of them in the house although the census confusingly describes them as 'daughter' and ' son' of the family preceding.

Conrad marries Jane Brash Mawson in West Derby in 1902. Jane is born in Liverpool in 1881 and in 1891 is living at 116, Towson Street, Everton with widowed mother, Harriet, and brother, John, and sister Harriet. In 1911, Conrad and Jane, his sister and the children are living in a five room house at 23 Ludwig Road, Liverpool, a few streets away from his first cousin, Lionel. Conrad is a salesman for a yeast dealer. [In 1911, the head of the household fills out the census - Conrad puts his name first, then his elder sister, Georgina, followed by the three sons. His wife, Jane, is last on the list??]

Conrad dies in Liverpool in 1914. Jane dies in Liverpool in 1951.

Lionel Percy 1875 is the son of Joseph Mainger 1842 and Caroline and the grandson of James 1813 and Ann. Born in Fulham, after the death of his father, he travels with his mother Caroline to stay with his uncle Theodore and wife Jane. In 1881 he is in Barrow with his uncle. In November 1883, he is elected to Clergy Orphan School, St Thomas Hill, Canterbury. He returns to Liverpool and is a talented amateur cricketer - the Liverpool Mercury reports on 15th August 1893 that he took 9 wickets for 6 runs for Canning. There are further reports - he also opens the batting as well as the bowling.

He marries Mary Agnes Quirk in 1899 in West Derby. Mary was born in 1880 in Liverpool. In 1901 they are at 77 Sedley St, Walton in Liverpool. In 1911, they are at 39, Laburnum Rd, Liverpool, a few streets away from his first cousin, Conrad . Lionel is a commercial clerk in a bottling plant.

Her distance was 200yds and her best time was 26.3 seconds achieved in London on 21st July 1927. She marries Mr Holland in Wandsworth.
