  • Notes 

    • [Chideock Parish Records via Chideock OPC; 1851 British census surname index; Chideock OPC 1861 census transcription~P13, Sch70] [Chideock Parish records]

      John England [II] was born in Chideock and baptized on 18 November, 1787.
      John was the father of James ENGLAND and Sarah ENGLAND, both of whom were born in Whitchurch Canonicorum, in 1814 & 1816.
      John died in Chideock and was buried there on 5 January, 1864.


      John's birth place is shown as Chideock in the 1851 census.
      He married "Betty" Collins in Chideock on 21 August, 1810. Sometime after their first child was born in 1811 , the couple apparently moved to Whitchurch Canonicorum [about 1 1/2 mies away as the>
      crow flies]. Perhaps John had leased a farm or was a sharecropper in W.C., because his occupation is shown as "husbandman" ... a farmer.
      Their second & third children, were born there. After the birth of their third child, the family moved back to Chideock where John became a simple agricultural laborer. The remainder of their chi>
      ldren were born in Chideock.
      In March, 1851, John England was 69 and listed as a "pauper". His profession was shown in the parish records as farm laborer. IF JOHN WAS BORN IN 1787 HE WOULD HAVE BEEN 64 IN THE 1851 CENSUS. >
      COULD HAVE BEEN A TRANSCRIPTION ERROR [4 VS 9].
      In the 1861 census, John is shown as being 74 years old, which supports the idea of a transcription error. He lived with his wife, Elizabeth and a 23 year old boarder, William Hallet who was fro>
      m Whitchurch Canonicorum. In 1861 John had been promoted from "pauper" to "Ag. Laborer". His birth place was listed as "St Gabriels".
      John was buried in Chideock on 5 January, 1864.
