This parish is about ten miles north-west of Launceston. The name is taken from the nun, St Waerburh, daughter of an Anglo-Saxon king. Her relics, at Chester, were an object of pilgrimage in the middle ages. Warburghstow was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086. The original manor house of Downwinney stood at one end of the village green, but only the Norman door, porch, and an upstairs window have survived. Just above the village is the prehistoric defensive earthworks known as Warbstow Bury or Barrow. Many retired people now live in the village, but farming is still active in the surrounding countryside.

Population

1841 - 503 inhabitants.  By the 1871 census, there were 3 Uglow households - Jenny, an unmarried dressmaker and two farmers, William and John Jolliffe.

Early Provenance

Unlike Marhamchurch and Bodmin, the IGI gives us no records of Uglows in Warbstow before the middle of the 18th century...... But then Warbstow was a hive of Uglows until the mid 19th century. But many either emigrated or moved away. There are now none in the 2001 phone directory....

Family 1a: William and Agnes Hobb

William 1702 was born  in St. Gennys. He is the son of Nicholas 1663 and Elizabeth Short who were resident in St Gennys. He is the grandson of either Richard and Elizabeth Braund from Marhamchurch or John 1625 from St Gennys

He married Agnes Hobb on 21 Oct 1730 at Treneglos. Agnes was born 18th August 1705 in Treneglos - her father was Quintine Hobb and her mother Modisty Roose. William and Agnes were resident in Warbstow throughout their marriage. Agnes died in 1777. William died before 15 May 1781. His will mentions his four sons and Agnes Hicks, his daughter.

Their name is often written 'Uglar'

  • son William 1731 born in Warbstow. He marries Mary Heard in 1763 - Family 1bi. He received a bequest under his father's will in 1781 of 2.50 a year.
  • son John 1734 born in Warbstow. He received a bequest under his father's will in 1781 of 2.50 a year. He dies in 1800 - his will was written in 1789 - it does not mention a wife but does mention his sister Agnes and his brothers, William and Nicholas, as well as brother Abel's widow, Elizabeth.
  • son Nicholas 1736 born in Warbstow. He marries Mary French in 1758 - Family 1biii. He is the executor and remainderman of his father's will.
  • daughter Agnes 1738 born in Warbstow. She marries Andrew Hicks from Warbstow. IGI give seven children. Four of the children are mentioned in grandfather William's will in 1781. These are William, Andrew, Samuel and Tristam. They also receives a bequest of £5 under their uncle John's will in 1800.
    Andrew Hicks is born in 1766 probably marries his first cousin, Ann 1770, daughter of his uncle Nicholas and Mary French. Agnes is widowed in 1789
  • son Abel 1742 born in Warbstow. He marries Elizabeth Turner (born 1745) in North Petherwin in 1766 and after son Abel 1767 is born in Warbstow, the family move to Week St Mary - Family 2a. He received a bequest under his father's will in 1781 of 60

Family 1bi: William and Mary Heard/Elizabeth Mary Hobbs

William 1731 was the son of William and Agnes Hobb and the grandson of Nicholas 1663 and Elizabeth Short. He married Mary Heard (born 1736 St.Gennys and died 1766 in Warbstow) in St Gennys in 1763. Mary died within three years and in 1771 William married Elizabeth Mary Hobbs in Warbstow. Her parents were Tristram and Mary Hobbs  and she was born in 1750 in North Petherwin.   Witnesses to the marriage were William Harvey and Peter Trise.  He received a bequest under his father's will in 1781 of 2.50 a year plus apparel. William died in 1797 in Warbstow. 

First marriage:

  • daughter Kathren 1764 born in Warbstow. She receives a bequest of £5 under her uncle John's will in 1800. It seems likely that she joins her brother in Plymouth and dies in Stoke Damerel in 1823.
  • son William 1766 born in Warbstow. He (but not his siblings) received a bequest under his grandfather's will in 1779 of 30. He receives a bequest of £5 under his uncle John's will in 1800.
    He  marries Mary Stacey in Week St Mary in 1798, witnesses were William Stacey and  A. Clifton. Mary was born in 1766 and dies in 1857. The 1851 census has her living in Stoke Damerel. Probably they ran the Beer House at 10 Granby St., Devonport - Family 0
Second marriage:
  • son John 1771 born in Warbstow.  He marries Ann Buckingham - Bodmin Family 5 - and Thomasine Cowling at St Gennys - Marhamchurch Family 12a
  • son Nicholas 1773 born in Warbstow. He dies in infancy
  • daughter Mary 1774 born in Warbstow. In 1799 she marries Richard Worth born in 1773 in Egloskerry and whose parents were  Richard Worth and Elizabeth Frayne. They had daughter Elizabeth, sons William, Abel and Nicholas as well as 3 other children. In 1841, Mary is living in Pillaton where her son, William is farming.
    Abel and Nicholas have moved to Whitstone by 1850. Nicholas marries Catherine and they have a daughter, Mary Uglow Worth, born in 1860. Abel marries Jane Bray Whitford born in Poundstock - they have a son, WIlliam Uglow Worth born in 1843. More intriguing is the fact that Jane is the older sister of Catherine Whitford who marries Abel's uncle, Nicholas 1782 . This is a close knit family - on the same sheet of the 1861 census in Whitstone, we find Abel and Nicholas living side by side in Luckham, next to (and presumably working as labourers on) Luckham Farm, now owned by Catherine and her husband, Josiah Martin. And Abel's aunt, Agnes 1776, is also living a couple of doors away!
  • daughter Agnes 1776 born in Warbstow. In the 1841 census she is living with Thomas May and family in Key Wood Cottage, Whitstone. In 1851 she is a pauper still living with the Mays at Hawkins Park,  Whitstone. In 1861, things haven't improved as she is a pauper, boarding with John Elliott, a labourer at Hay Wood, Whitstone. But at least she lived to a ripe old age, dying in Whitstone in 1864.
  • son Abel 1778 born in Lesnewth. In 1810 he marries Honor Kinsman in Poughill - she was probably born there in 1784 - Family  2a in Poughill
  • daughter Elizabeth 1779 born in Lesnewth. She marries William Sluman(?) in 1813 in Warbstow with Nicholas and Ann as witnesses.
  • son Nicholas 1782 born in Warbstow. He marries very late in life in 1847 to a much younger woman,  Catherine Whitford - an interesting story which is detailed in Family 3 in Whitstone
  • son Tristram 1783 born in Warbstow.

Family 1biii: Nicholas and Mary French and Catherine Medland

Nicholas 1736 was born in Warbstow, a yeoman, the son of William and Agnes Hobb and the grandson of Nicholas 1663 and Elizabeth Short. He seems to have lived his life in the village, dying and buried there in 1810. He was married twice, the first time to Mary French, in 1758. Mary 1723-1789was a local girl .  

The second marriage was to a much younger woman, Catherine Medland who was born in 1753 and died at the age of 51 and was buried in  St. Gennys. They married in 1794 in Poundstock - ?Catherine was already a widow having married William Elson in 1775?

Nicholas was churchwarden and executor of his father's will in 1779. He receives a bequest under his brother John's will in 1800. He is the trustee for the younger children under his sister in law, Elizabeth's will.

He dies in 1810 in Warbstow. His own will mentions all the surviving children but also his friends, William Hicks and Edmund Uglow from Week St Mary.

  • son Abel 1759 born in Warbstow. He marries Jennifer Edwards in Warbstow in 1791 - Family 8. He (but not his siblings) received a bequest under his grandfather's will in 1779 of 50.
  • son William 1760 born in Treneglos. In 1790 in Treneglos, he marries Ann Chapman - witnesses were Nicholas Uglow (father? brother?) and Edward Chapman - Family 6
  • son John 1762 born in Treneglos. In 1791 he marries Jenny Chapman in Davidstow - Family 1ciii
  • daughter Agnes 1766 - she is not mentioned in her father's will and must be presumed to have died before 1810.
  • son Nicholas 1768 born in Warbstow. He marries Ann Gillard in Warbstow in 1803. The witnesses are Honey Maria Gillard & William Colwell.  Ann (1776-1869) is buried in the village with a MI. Nicholas dies in 1848 and is buried in the village - Family 10.
  • daughter Ann 1770 born at Treneglos. She marries Andrew Hicks in Warbstow in 1791 - this is probably her first cousin, the son of her aunt Agnes 1738 and Andrew Hicks. Under her father's will, she receives £50 for her own use in 1810.
  • son George 1772 born at Warbstow but dies in 1774
  • daughter Mary 1776 born at Warbstow - she marries Roger Piper in Warbstow in 1807. Under her father's will, she receives £150 for her own use in 1810.

Second marriage

Family1ciii: John and Jenny Chapman

(Source: Eugene Clark):

John 1762 is the son of Nicholas and Mary French and the grandson of William and Agnes Hobb. He marries Jenny Chapman in 1791 in Davidstow. Is Jenny related to Ann Chapman who marries John's brother, William, the year previously? Under his father's will, he receives £100 in 1810. In 1812, in Trewman's Flying Post (13th August), there is a reference to a tenement called Hendra's Walls in Davidstow in the occupation of Messrs Uglow and Spettigue.

In 1841, John and Jane(?) are living in Downiney, Warbstow - all the children are born there. In 1841 only Harriet is still with her parents.

John dies in 1843. His will names his wife and all his children, except Jane, who presumably has died young.

  • daughter Mary Ann 1792 born in Warbstow.  She marries John Bray in North Petherwin in 1824. We know this from her father referring to her as Mary Ann Bray in his will in 1843.
  • daughter Jane 1794 born in Warbstow.  She probably dies young as she alone of the children is not mentioned in her father's will in 1843
  • son John 1796  born in Warbstow. He marries Jenny Ward in St Gennys in 1826 - Family 5. He is mentioned in his father's will in 1843, along with his young son, John [but none of the other grandchildren?].
  • daughter Jennifer 1799 born in Warbstow. In Warbstow in 1820 she marries James French - witnesses are brother John and sister Mary. We know this from her father referring to her as Jennifer french in his will in 1843. Presumably this is a cousin from her grandmother's (Mary French) side. They have a daughter Jane born in Devon in 1826. Jenny dies in 1871 in Jefferson, Wisconsin (note: her brother John 1796 also emigrates to Wisconsin)
  • daughter Elizabeth 1802 born in Warbstow. In 1826 she married Abel Davey - John is witness. We know this from her father referring to her as Elizabeth Davey in his will in 1843.
  • daughter Grace 1805 born in Warbstow. She marries Richard Hawke in Warbstow in 1831. We know this from her father referring to her as Grace Hawke in his will in 1843. They are living in the village at the time of the 1851 census. However they then emigrate to Lorrain Co. Ohio in 1856, and Grace moved to Jefferson, Wisconsin after her husband, Richard died in England. Her sons, William and John later emigrated to Ohio as well.
  • daughter Thomasin 1808 born in Warbstow. She marries a farm labourer, William Hird in Tintagel in 1836. We know this from her father referring to her as Thomasin Heard in his will in 1843. They live in Tintagel and have a daughter, Mary Anne, born in 1850. William has died by 1881 but 'Tamzin Heard' is living in Treknow Village, Tintagel with her daughters, Tamzin Jones 1846, a soldier's wife, and Mary Ann 1850, unmarried and a dressmaker.
  • daughter Harriet 1811 born in Warbstow. In 1841 she's living with her parents in Downinney. She's unmarried in 1843 and is living in Warbstow at the time of the 1851 census but dies the same year in Launceston.
  • son George 1812 born in Warbstow. He marries Mary Jenkins from Tremaine in 1837 - Family 9. He is mentioned as the executor of his father's will in 1843.

Family 2: Nicholas and Margaret Wilson

Nicholas 1805 is the son of Nicholas and Ann Gillard and the grandson of Nicholas and Mary French. He marries Margaret Wilson, a sojourner, in Warbstow in 1833. This was not a successful marriage as Nicholas is to be found in Warbstow in the 1841 and 1851 census whereas Margaret is in Stoke Damerel with the daughters. He works as a farm labourer and dies in 1861. He is buried in the village.

Margaret is an interesting character and a bigamist. She was born in 1814 in Mauritius, a British subject. How she ends up in Warbstow, marrying Nicholas is a mystery. But within a few yearsof her marriage, she has left him and is living in Stoke Damerel - the 1841 census sees her as 'independent means'. By 1851, she is living as man and wife with Richard Lawmon Burnard, a maths teacher, in Portland Buildings in Stoke Damerel - they have been through a ceremony of marriage at St Georges, Southwark in London in 1847. In the 1851 census, Margaret's mother, Sarah Wilson, and daughter Fanny are living with them. In 1861, the family are still in the Plymouth area - Margaret has two children by Richard but her mother and Fanny have disappeared. In 1861, Nicholas dies and in 1862, Richard and Margaret go through another (this time legal) ceremony when they go off to the City of London where they marry. There's no sign of the family in 1871 - they may be in South Africa with Fanny. In 1881, Margaret is living in Cheshire with her two children by Richard. She dies in Liverpool in 1889.

  • daughter Jemima Wilson 1835 born in Warbstow. In 1841 she is at Portland Cottages, Stoke Damerel with her sister and mother. She dies in 1850 in Stoke Damerel.
  • daughter Fanny Sarah 1837 born in Stoke Damerel. In 1841 she is at Portland Cottages, Stoke Damerel with her sister and mother. She is still there is 1851. In 1863, she marries Charles Sweet born in Plymouth in 1837 and a tanner by trade. They have four children, Edith 1865, Owen 1869, Charles 1870 and Mabel 1875. In 1870 they are in South Africa for the birth of Charles but return and in 1881 are in Thanet Villas, Bexley in Kent. By 1891, Fanny is living with Owen and Charles in Camberwell.

Family 3a: William and Margaret Turner Colwill 

William 1810 was born in Jacobstow,  the son of Edward and  Margery Hoskyn and the grandson of John and Ann Ridgman.  He marries Margaret Turner Colwill in December 1836 - she is from North Petherwin, born in 1814.

In 1841, they are at Gouds Green, Warbstow. William is a farmer and they have a 3 month old son, Edward. The elder son, William, isn't on the census?

In 1851, they are at Tredarrup, a hamlet to the west of Warbstow. On his father's death, William is left Tredarrup and Tentergan estates in Warbstow, subject to certain mortgage payments. He is also left New Berrage Orchard at Broad Langdon which he planted.

In 1861, they are still at Tredarrup with all eight children.

In 1871, William 1810 is a farmer of 100 acres in Warbstow.

In 1881, William and Margaret are still living at Tredarup with unmarried sons, Charles and Jabez. Also on the census is Selina Fry (Uglow), described as a servant/daughter - an illegitimate daughter?

Margaret dies in 1887 and William in 1889 - MI Bethel

  • son Edward 1838 born in Jacobstow but dies the same year and is buried in Jacobstow

  • son William 1839 born in Warbstow. In the census of 1841, he is staying at Bradworthy with William and Olympia Hicks - Olympia was Olympia Colwill, born 1785 and probably William's great aunt. In 1851 and 1861, he is with his parents.

    On 6th April 1865 he marries Elizabeth Ann Hancock in Warbstow. On 7th April they sail on the Cap Rouge from Plymouth to Quebec in 1865, single tickets. Elizabeth is still described as single on the passenger list - her parents, John and Mary, and her brother travel with them. They appear on the 1881 and 1891 Canadian census at Hope, Durham East, Ontario. They eventually have 8 children - John W. 1866, Elizabeth 1868-1949 [marries Edward Diamond of Belleville in 1896 in Port Hope], Margery 1871, William George 1872-1954, Richard Thomas 1874-1958, Mary Margaret Uglow 1877-1927 [she is enrolled in the Port Hope Model High School in 1891 and later trains as a teacher. She dies unmarried in Port Hope], Eliza M 1878 and Sara 1884.

    In 1881, William is described as a farmer and is a methodist. He dies in 1913 at the Township of Hope in Canada. Elizabeth dies in the following year.


  • son Edward 1841 born in Tredarrup. Edward dies in 1866 and is buried in Jacobstow. 

  • daughter Elizabeth Ann 1842 born in Warbstow. She marries William Box in March 1871 and they emigrate to Ontario. They appear on the 1881 Canadian census at Clarke, Durham West, Ontario with 4 children. William is described as a farmer and a methodist.

  • son Samuel Jolliffe 1846 born in Warbstow. A blacksmith, in 1875 he marries Betsy Ann Burnard (born 1853) in St Juliot - Family 11.

  • son John Jolliffe 1848 born in Warbstow. In 1871 he is visiting William 1813 in North Petherwin. He emigrates to Ontario - Emigrant Canada 1 - probably after 1881.

  • daughter Olympia Grace 1850 born in Warbstow. At the time of the 1871 census she's living with her parents in Warbstow but has junked the Olympia and is called just Grace. In 1873 she marries Richard Baker (1848-1887) in Tredarrup. The witnesses are Charles and William Uglow (brother and father?). Richard was the youngest son of Thomas and Hannah Baker of Whiteleigh and was born 1 July 1848, Week St Mary. He was the brother (although 15 years younger) of Hannah Maria Baker who married Samuel Jolliffe 1823. Samuel was, of course, Olympia's uncle and the brother of William.

    By 1881 Richard and Olympia are substantial farmers, with 356 acres at Whiteleigh, Week St Mary. Now Olympia again, she has 5 children. But Richard died young on March 7th 1887 aged 38 years. A headstone was erected by his sister, Hannah. After her husband's death, Olympia went to live with her father and brother, William Uglow and Charles Colwill Uglow at Tredarrup Farm, Warbstow. They did up Langdon Farmhouse for her to live in. In 1891 she emigrated with all her seven children to New Zealand to join her youngest brother, Jabez Uglow, who had emigrated there 2 years earlier. She arrived in Wellington aboard the "Arawa" on 18 Nov 1891. Jabez arranged work for her as a housekeeper etc. for the farmhands of Longbeach Estate, a large farm with up to 100 employees in South Canterbury established and owned by John Grigg. She dies in 1910 and is buried at Ashburton Cemetery, Ashburton, Canterbury district: Emigrant New Zealand 2
    .[There are New Zealand Bakers who have researched this line - I can put you in touch with Vaughan Baker if you are interested]

  • son Charles Colville 1853 born in Warbstow. In 1886 he marries a widow, Catherine Grace Colville (1855-1911) at Lawhitton - Family 12.

  • son Jabez 1857 born in Warbstow. At the time of the 1871 census he's living with his parents in Warbstow. Around the 1890s he emigrates to New Zealand - Emigrant New Zealand 2

Family 4: Thomas and Arminel Metherell and Sarah Lillicrap

Thomas was born in the village in 1822, perhaps the illegitimate son of Margaret 1797 and the grandson of John and Margaret Cory. Possibly Thomas's father is a Hawke - Thomas's daughter, Emma, is staying with her grandparents, Richard and Grace Hawke in Warbstow in 1861?

In 1841, he is working on Richard Gynn's farm at Treseven, Warbstow. He marries Arminel Metherell in Tremaine in 1845. Arminel is born in Tremaine in 1823 - father Philip and mother Ann.

They move around, as is shown by the birthplaces of the children but they end in Launceston where Thomas was  a farm labourer and  she was a school teacher. Arminel  dies in 1868 and is buried in St Stephen by Launceston.

At the time of the 1871 census, Thomas is a widower, working as a farm labourer in Launceston living with his daughter, Mary Jane. She is still in Tower Street in 1881 but Thomas is no longer with her.

In 1876 Thomas marries Sarah Lillicrap, presumably a widow, born in Egg Buckland, Plymouth in 1829. In 1881 they are living in Langore Village, St Stephens, Launceston and in 1891 Walters Menheniotts St Stephens, Launceston. Thomas is a farm labourer. Thomas dies in Launceston in 1891.

Sarah goes to live with her daughter (from her first marriage) Bessie Sarah 1861 born in Bickleigh, north of Plymouth. Bessie has married (a cousin?) RIchard Lillicrap about 1878. They are living in Shaugh Prior in 1881. Richard dies in the early 1890s and Bessie marries William Harfoot - they are living in Devonport in 1901. Sarah, a 70 year old mother in law living at Rodney Terrace, Devonport, with her grandchildren(?) William and Percival Harfoot. Sarah dies in Devonport in 1919.

[This latter marriage is speculative - there is clearly an1876 marriage in Launceston with Thomas and Sarah on the same page! The later census records show that they are both quite old. This suggests a second marriage for both Thomas and Sarah.]

  • daughter Elizabeth Ann 1845 born in Tintagel. She is living with her parents in Warbstow in 1851. By 1861, she is earning her living as a dairy maid at Brazacott Cross, North Petherwin at the house of John Pearse, a landowner - the housekeeper is Ann Metherell, a relative of her mother's? In the censuses of 1881 and 1891 she is working as a servant for Jane Wellman in Launceston - she is living in the Wellman house. In September, 1891 she marries William Werring. He was born in 1847 in Launceston. In 1901 they are in Oldwit Cottage, South Petherwin where William works as a cattle man. Possibly they had a son, William Sydney, born in Launceston in 1893 but he is not present on the 1901 census. Elizabeth's nephew, George, is living with them and working as a cow boy. George must be the son of Elizabeth's only brother, William - see below.
  • daughter, Mary Jane 1848 born  in Warbstow. She is living with her parents in Warbstow in 1851. Ten years later she is a general servant at Carly Farm in Lifton on the farm of great uncle William. By the 1871 census she has married (1863?) William Lane and lives in St Stephens, Launceston, where Lane is a farm labourer. Their children are Samuel, William, Margaret and Annanet. Her father and sisters, Margaret and Ellen, live with her. By 1881, Mary and her family are still in Launceston but without her father or sisters. In 1891, she and William are living at St Stephens Hill, Launceston. William is a gardener - they have five children and brother William's son, George, is living with them. By 1901, she is in Launceston working as a nurse

  • daughter Margaret 1850 born in Warbstow. She is living with her parents in Warbstow in 1851 and living with Mary Jane at the time of the 1871 census. She gets married to Henry Warring, a blacksmith, in 1874.  In 1891, they are still in Launceston but Henry is now a foreman at the gas works. Their children include Armanel Uglow Warring 1875; Charles 1877, Elizabeth 1880; Margaret Uglow Warring 1887
  • son William 1851 born in Jacobstow. In 1872 at St Peters, St Pancras he marries Ellen Terry. She is a local Launceston girl, born in Werrington, just north of Launceston in 1851. In 1861, Ellen is with her parents, Nicholas (a farm worker) and Mary, in Wringsdown Village, near Yeolmbridge, close to Werrington. In 1871, she has flown to London and is living at 91 Adelaide Road, Hampstead and is working as a housemaid. In 1881 they are in Islington with William working as a baker. He is following his cousins such as William Henry 1841 and Henry French Ridgman Cory 1825, both descendants of Abel and Mary Ridgman. In 1889, Ellen dies in Cornwall, although her death is registered in Edmonton.

    William and the children move to the Isle of Wight for a time but in 1891, he is back in St Pancras and marrying a second time, to Julia Pegg born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1860. In 1891, they are living at 259 Portman Buildings, Lisson Grove, Marylebone. In 1901, they are living at 113 Medway Road, Croydon. However there is another trip to the Isle of Wight - in 1911, Julia with daughters Julia and Nellie (Ellen) are staying in Wilton Road in Shanklin. Daughter Charlotte is working at a nursing home nearby but there is no sign of William. William dies in 1934 in St Pancras.

    First marriage
    • daughter Mary Ann 1873 born in Islington and living with her parents in 1881. She does not appear on the 1891 or 1901 census but there is a marriage record for a Mary Ann in Holborn in 1903 - this is probably to Arthur Henry Rogers. There is also a death certificate for Mary Ann Rogers, born 1873, who dies in West Ham in 1909.

    • Hetty Arminel 1876 born in Islington and living with her parents in 1881 - appears as Katy. In 1891, Hetty is living with her father and stepmother in Marylebone. By 1901, she is working as a cook in Bickenhall Mansion, Marylebone. She dies in 1911.

    • daughter Bessy Terry 1877 born in Islington and living with her parents in 1881. In 1891, she is living with her father and stepmother in Marylebone. In 1901 she is working in West Ewell as a cook for the Boxall family. In 1904, she has a son John Andersen, registered in Marylebone. She marries Albert James Smith in 1906 in Holborn. John Andersen presumably lives with his mother and later changes his name to Smith by deed poll.
    • son William Henry B 1878 born in Launceston but living with his parents in Islington in 1881. In 1891, he is living with his father and stepmother in Marylebone. In March 1901 he is in Glasgow working as an apprentice baker, probably to Ernest Edwards. That month he marries Letitia (Letty) Ramsay, born in England in 1872 - she is the daughter of James Thomas Ramsay (a commercial traveller) and Jean Ramsay. That year the census finds them living at 139 Kennedy St, Glasgow with Ernest and Beatrice Edwards. William and Letty move to Coral Bank, Wyndham Rd, Ardbee, Rothesay on the Isle of Bute where they have two daughters.

In 1911, they are still living at 2 Athenaeum Place, Plymouth and Ernest is a fruit and petals shopkeeper. They are now both 45 and there are no children.

Family 5: John Jolliffe and Philippa Jane Symons 

John Jolliffe 1838 was born in Jacobstow, the son of John and Mary Northey and the grandson of of Edward and Margery Hoskyn.

He married Philippa Jane Symons in June 1861 - Philippa was still a minor as she was born in 1842 in North Tamerton in Devon - and the marriage was in Holsworthy. By 1871 John Jolliffe was a substantial farmer of 90 acres in Warbstow (source: 1871 census). Tragically his mother died in 1872 - John travelled to Tobarn to attend her funeral. Just before the funeral, he was missed and a search found him in a nearby field. Apparently he was so grief stricken that he cut his own throat with a razor. (Trewman's Exeter Flying Post 1st May 1872) He is buried in Jacobstow. 

After John Jolliffe's death, his father, John 1802, manages the large estate and helps Philippa with the 7 grandchildren. But John 1802 himself dies in 1874. Presumably one of the grandsons (John 1867 below) inherits but he is only 7 years old.

In 1881, Philippa Jane  (Philipy) is farming Tobarn with 6 of the children - Mary, John, Margery, Elizabeth, Eulalia and Samuel. There's help next door - on Dytchen Farm, is Philip Symons, Philippa's brother.

Phillipa re-marries - to Emanuel May Metherell - about March in 1886. The 1891 census has them at Lower Penwinham, Warbstow, with Elizabeth, Eulalia and Samuel. The daughters are 'mother's helps' and the son is helping on the farm.

1901 still has Phillippa and Emanuel together (but now Metherill on the census). They are living at Higher Kents, Jacobstow and Emanuel is still farming. Daughter Elizabeth, now married to a Ridgeman, is staying as is her granddaughter, Mary Medland, Margery's daughter.

  • daughter Mary 1861 born in North Tamerton. In 1881 she is at Tobarn with Philippa. She marries her cousin Thomas Baker 1860  in Jacobstow in November in 1885. NB the families must be close as Mary's sister, Philippa, is staying with Thomas's father, her great uncle Samuel, at census time.Thomas dies in 1928 and Mary in 1939 - there's an MI at Eden.

In 1901, they are farming at Lower Penwenham, Warbstow. But in 1911, Samuel travels from Bristol to Montreal and in 1912, we find Alice and the three children travelling the same route. They emigrate to Canada and they farm at Cooking Lake, Alberta. There's a trip home to Warbstow on the SS Minnedosa in Dec 1920 - returning in the next year. Samuel works as a farmer in Canada. He dies there in 1947 and is buried in South Cooking Lake cemetery. Alice dies in 1959.

Family 6: William and Ann Chapman

William 1760 is the son of Nicholas and Mary French and the grandson of William and Agnes Hobb. He was born in Treneglos. In 1790 in Treneglos, he marries Ann Chapman - the witnesses were Nicholas Uglow (who is William's father or brother) and Edward Chapman. Ann was born in Launcells in April 1771

Under his father's will, he receives Rundell's tenement in Downhinney in Warbstow in 1810. WIlliam dies before 1814 as, by the time of the census, Ann is his widow, now 70 and is a shopkeeper living in Warbstow Lane, Warbstow with daughter, Jennifer, a dressmaker. Also living there is grandaughter Ann Honey and Mary Heard, perhaps a relative of her niece, Thomasin Hird, daughter of Jenny Chapman. Ann dies before the next census, probably in 1844.

  • son Nicholas 1791 born in Warbstow. He may have been the miller at Tuckingmill, Warbstow. He married Grace Uglow, the daughter of William and Jane Bray from Jacobstow and they live in Warbstow - Family 6a.
  • son John 1793 born in Warbstow. He joins the navy and is a rigger in HM service. He moves to the Plymouth area where he marries Mary Ann Harris who was born in 1794? in St. Mellion. She dies in 1864 in  Stoke Damerel - Family 4.
  • daughter Mary 1795 born in Warbstow. She marries John Honey in Warbstow in 1819.They have several children, including William Uglow Honey, born 1820. Mary marries for a second time - in 1835 in Warbstow to William Jones. Mary dies in March, 1836, shortly after the birth of their son.
  • daughter Ann 1797 born in Warbstow.  In 1820 in Launceston, she marries Richard Heath - he is a ropemaker who was born in Devonport in 1798. They have at least three sons - William 1825, Richard 1832 and John 1839. In the census of 1851, Ann gives her place of birth as Warbstow which strongly suggests that she is the daughter of William and Ann Chapman. In the censuses of 1851,1861 and 18971 Ann and Richard are living in Madford Wall, St Mary Magdalen, Launceston with Richard and sons still ropemakers. She probably dies in the first quarter of 1877 in Launceston.
  • daughter Catherine 1800 born in Warbstow. In 1819, she marries an Otterham farmer, William Kinsman. However in 1841, the family is living in Week St Mary and William is working as a mason. By that time they have 6 children - William 1821, Richard 1827, Henry 1827?, Ann 1831, John 1835, Catherine 1840. They are Bible Christians who emigrate to Ontario, ending up at Bowmanville, Durham West, Ontario where William dies in 1856. Catherine is alive at the time of the 1881 census in Canada, living with the Dayman family in Bowmanville.
  • daughter Jenopher/Jennifer 1803 born in Warbstow. In the 1841 (with her mother), 1851, 1861 and 1871 census she is a dressmaker in Warbstow. 
  • daughter Agnes 1805 born in Warbstow. In 1829 she marries Roger Luxon in the village. They are living in Tucking Mill, close to Warbstow in 1851 with their children - Roger is a farm labourer. Widowed by 1863, by 1871 she is a widow twice over and a grocer in the village. She lives with her widowed daughter, Agnes Wills, a dressmaker, and her two young children.  [Daughter Agnes has provided a small problem as she was born in Warbstow as Agnes Uglow Luxon. In 1851 she is with her parents. In 1861 she is at Trengune where she is a general servant to Philip and Grace Ebbott who farm 150 acres - but is down as Agnes Uglow. Agnes marries William Wills, has two children, Elizabeth and William. In 1871 she is with her widowed mother - next door is 24 year old Arthur Pethick, a miller and in 1881, we find Agnes at Warbstow Lane Grocers Shop married to Arthur. The family also includes Emily U. Pethick - probably in recognition of Agnes middle name and her mother's maiden name. In 1891, Arthur (now Petherick) is an unemployed miller at Out Ground Mills, Camelford]

Family 6a: Nicholas and Grace Uglow

Nicholas 1791 born in Warbstow was the son of William and Ann Chapman and the grandson of Nicholas and Mary French.   He married Grace Uglow 1800, from Jacobstow, the daughter of William and Jane Bray and the granddaughter of John and Ann Ridgman in 1823 in Jacobstow. The witnesses were John Jolliffe Uglow, probably the bride's uncle, and Edward, probably her brother.

In 1841 Nicholas is the miller at Tuckingmill, Warbstow with Grace and the four surviving children. Next door are James 1801 and Mary Ann Bawden and on the other, some Luxons - note that Nicholas's sister, Agnes, married a Luxon.
  • son William 1824 born in Warbstow. He died young as there is considerable evidence from birth certificates and census for a later son called William in 1841.
  • son John 1826 born in Warbstow. In 1841 he is with his parents at Tucking Mill. In 1848 he married Jayne Hayne, born 1822. In the 1851 census they are at Butts, Minster, Camelford, working as a labourer. In 1861, the family is in Boscastle Town, Forrabury where John is still an agricultural labourer. A bit desolate as properties on either side are unoccupied... A boarder is Gerrance Hayne aged 85, father of Jane?

    The family emigrate - they arrive in New York on 30th June1869 on the ship 'Alex Marshall'. They travel certainly to Canada where the family is to be found in 1881 at Fullarton, Perth, South Ontario. They are a Bible Christian family. [It is possible that John first tries his hand in Australia - John C. Uglow aged 28 arrived on "St. George" in Victoria, Australia in January 1853]
    • daughter Elizabeth 1848 born in Minster. She is found with her parents in the census of 1851 and 1861. She travels to Ontario with them and in 1873 marries Henry Ford 1844-1914 in Ontario. In the 1880 census she is living in Michigan with Henry, a grocer. She dies in Florida in 1925.

    • son John 1858 born in Boscastle. He is found with her parents in the census of 1861. He travels to Ontario with them but isn't on the 1881 Canadian census. He marries Louisa Kuhne 1866-1948. John dies and is buried in Crosby Lake cemetry in Florida in 1952
    • son Gerry 1867. Possibly short for Gerrance - who may be Jane's father and was living with the family in 1861. Gerry travels to Ontario with his parents and is on the 1881 census with them. He marries Sarah Maxworthy, works as a pharmacist, probably in Detroit where he dies in 1921.
  • son Nicholas 1831 born in Warbstow but dies young
  • son Nicholas 1834 born in Warbstow. In 1841 he is with his parents at Tucking Mill. In 1859 he marries Jane Tom of Poundstock (1836-1906). Nicholas becomes a farmer at Kents, Jacobstow - Family 9. Nicholas dies in 1929 - MI at Headon.
  • daughter Mary Jane 1837 born in Warbstow. In 1841 she is with her parents at Tucking Mill. In 1851 she is a house servant with Richard Chapman, a farmer presumably related to Mary's grandmother, Ann Chapman. In 1858 she marries James Jeffery, a mason, born in Sheepwash, Devon about 1840. By 1871, they have moved to London where James worked as a plasterer and they have a family of seven children - for more about Mary Jane, read Dallas Manicom's account of Mary and her family
  • son William 1841 born in Warbstow. In 1841 he is with his parents at Tucking Mill. In 1870, he marries Wilmot Wonnacott in Jacobstow - they live in Merther - Family 1a

In May 1870, they travel to Liverpool and embark on the SS Nestorian for Quebec - their infant son, John, is with them. They eventually have five children. The family is farming in Bidwell & Sheguiandah, Algoma, Ontario in the 1881 census. Grace dies of consumption in April 1889 and is buried in Sheguiandah Reserve Cemetery, Manitoulin Island, Ontario. John Robbins dies in 1906.

Family 7: William and Joanna Marshall

There are alternatives for William 1791

He marries Joanna Marshall in 1816 in Warbstow. She was born in 1793 - there are several Joannas born in Tresmeer, just down the road, in the late 18th century.

Mary Uglow was witness to the marriage, probably Mary Ridgman, wife of Abel 1791 in Launceston.   The children were born in Warbstow, by the 1851 census, the family is in St Austell - Family 1a

Family 8: Abel and Jennifer Edwards

Abel 1759 is born in Warbstow. He is the son of Nicholas and Mary French and the grandson of William and Agnes Hobb. He marries Jennifer Edwards in Warbstow in 1791. Under his father's will, he receives the tenement of Penwinham in Warbstow in 1810.

  • son William 1791 - probably marries Johannah Marshall in 1816 and raises family in Warbstow Family 7 - and then moves to St Austell Family 1 [NB William might be the son of Abel 1767 and Jane in Week St Mary]
  • son Abel 1793 born in Warbstow. He marries Philippa Tinney in 1832 in St Gennys - Philippa was born there in 1805.  Their children are born in St Gennys - Family 6a - but Abel is a carpenter who moves to the Plymouth area where he is found in the censuses of 1851 and 1861. But he/they move back north as Abel dies in the Stratton area in 1865  and Philippa dies there  in 1875.  
  • daughter Mary 1795 born in Warbstow. She marries who marries Sampson Parson in 1826. We know this because in 1861 Mary, a schoolmistress, is living at Tuckingmill with her son, Sampson, a wheelwright and carpenter. Also living there is Richard Uglow, a joiner, described as a cousin. This is the son of Abel, Mary's brother.
    In 1871, Mary is still living in the village as an annuitant with her son Sampson, a carpenter, in 1871. She dies before 1881 becuase in the census we find her son Sampson, now married, still living at Tuckingmill with seven children but no mother.

Family 9: George and Mary Jenkins

George 1812 born in Warbstow, the son of John and Jenny Chapman and the grandson of Nicholas and Mary French. He marries Mary Jenkins from Tremaine in 1837. She was born in 1817 in Tremaine - her parents were Edward and Mary.

In 1841, they are found in Downinney, Warbstow - George is a butcher. Their one year old son, John, is also on the census. George dies early - in 1849.

In 1851 Mary is the schoolmistress at Downinney, Warbstow with sons John George and Amos. She remarries in 1852 - to Simon Prout. They have two children, Mary 1856 and William 1858 but by 1861, Simon is a widower in Launceston Workhouse with his two little children.

  • son John 1839 born in Warbstow but he dies in 1842

  • son Amos 1842 born in Warbstow. In 1851 he is still in Warbstow but becomes a 'bible christian minister', working in South Molton in 1867 and then posted to Australia in 1869. Before he leaves, he finds time to attend the 51st Bible Christian Connexion Conference (Bristol Mercury 31st July 1869). Amos is representing Hicks Mill (just outside Launceston).

    Amos was the patriarch of the Australian Uglows. He emigrated on The "Lincolnshire"  (a clipper of 1,200 tons captained by Henry H Skinner) which left Plymouth on 29th September 1869 and arrived in Melbourne on 17th December.  Amos came to Australia as an unassisted immigrant, presumably with his fare paid by the church.


    He marries Blanche Remfrey from Gunnislake on 12th April 1871 at The Parsonage, Elmore, Victoria, with the Rev Samuel Bryant officiating. Blancheis a small mystery - we know that she was born on 14th March 1852 in Gunnislake, the daughter of Samuel 1829 and Elizabeth Daws 1831. How and when she travelled to Australia or met Amos is unknown.

    Amos and Blanche have 11 children, all born in Victoria - they include Horace William 1872 (he marries Louise Skardon in Western Australia in 1904); Mary Elizabeth 1874; Florence Remfry 1875; Annie Blee 1877; Hobart Stanley 1879 (he marries Florence King in Western Australia in 1904); Blanche May 1881; Samuel Rupert 1886;Amos 1889; Alvah Henry 1891-1918 - his grave is to be found in the Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery in the Somme region and service record may be by searching on his name here.

    He was obviously not put off long sea voyages by the experience, for he turned up back in England perhaps twice more. One trip is when  Amos returns for another Bible Christian Conference in Barnstaple in 1895 - he stays several months and in the Manchester Times 26th July 1895, he posts an advert asking his long lost brother, John George, to get in touch. Amos is staying in Brondesbury in London at that time. Do the brothers ever meet? We don't know.
    He departed from England on 19 October on the same "Orizuba" (a sailing ship of 6,077 tons, somewhat bigger than the "Lincolnshire") on which he arrived for this visit, bound for Melbourne.

    Both Amos (1924) and Blanche (1927) die in Australia.
