William Edward Jewell Male

Born: 1865

Occupation: House Carpenter

Comments: Aged 6 at the time of the 1871 census.

Age 15 at the time of the 1881 census (implying he was born 1865/1866),  when he lived with his parents.

Aged 25 at the time of the 1891 census, where his surname seems to have been incorrectly indexed as "Javell", as the handwriting is not so clear. Here his occupation is entered as carpenter and his place of birth Romsey.

Aged 34 at the time of the 1901 census (implying he was born 1866/1867), by which time he was the head of the household, living at 108, Kingston Rd, Portsmouth.

His birthplace is recorded as Awebridge, Hampshire in the 1881 census, but Romsey in the 1901 census.

This seems very likely to tie in with a birth record for William Edward Jewell in the GRO indices for Oct/Nov/Dec 1865 (Romsey, volume 2c, page 69).

He appears to have followed in his father's footsteps. In the 1881 census his occupation is recorded as "Carpenter's Assistant", and by 1901 it has become "House Carpenter". At the time of the 1901 census two of his brothers - Charles and Henry - are living with him, so it may be they too are involved in the family business.

Interestingly, one Angelius Elcock was also married in the same quarter.

At the time of the 1891 census, the couple are living at 38 High Street, Widley, Cosham.
