John Jewell Male

Born: 1826

Occupation: Carpenter

Comments: In the 1871 census his age is entered as 39 and his place of birth King's Somborne.

According to the 1881 census, he was born in Awebridge, Hampshire. His age was recorded as 54. Here his occupation is entered as carpenter.

At the time of the 1891 census, John is entered as being 59, and his occupation wheelwright. His place of birth is given as Kings Somborne, Hampshire. Although many of these details do seem inconsistent with the earlier entry, the presence of the rest of the family members seem to confirm this is the same John Jewell.

At the time of the 1901 census, John's age is entered as 70, and his place of birth again Kings Somborne, Hampshire. As before his occupation is entered as carpenter.

John's Family

Spouse: Elizabeth Wingham (Married 1859)
Children: Louisa A Jewell, Elizabeth Jewell, William Edward Jewell, Fanny Ellen Jewell, Sarah A. Jewell, Bessie Jewell, Jane Jewell, Charles John Jewell, James Jewell, Henry Jewell
At the time of the 1871 census, the family are living at 23 Awbridge Hill, Michelmersh, Hampshire.

At the time of the 1881 census, the family lived in Salisbury Lane Cottage, Romsey Extra, Hampshire, England. They seemed to be largely engaged in carpentry.

At the time of the 1891 census, the parents and two of the children are still living at what may actually be the same address - something like Stanbridge Cottage, 59, Salisbury Lane, Romsey Extra, Hampshire.

There may have been an initial error in the 1891 census entry, as the household actually appears on two pages. On the first page the address is actually number 58 rather than 59, however it appears the whole page has been crossed out, and the details entered again on a second page.

The most likely entry for the marriage in the GRO indicies is for Oct/Nov/Dec 1859 (Romsey, volume 2c, page 115). There are two Elizabeths listed here - one Wingham and one Winghorn.
