    SAMUEL COBB AND FAMILY
    Samuel COBB was born and baptised in the village of East Stoke, Dorset in 1796, the youngest child of William and Margaret. William died in 1811 and during the last ten years of his life at least, before Samuel was of an age to be earning his living, the family suffered much hardship. However, with the death of his mother in 1812, although only 16 years old, Samuel, and his sister Abigail, probably thought their troubles were over as they, together with their grandmother, Elizabeth CHICK, were the beneficiaries named in Margaret’s Will. The Will could, however, have been challenged, perhaps by William, John and David, brothers to Samuel, as it was not proved until 1819 for less than £100. Or perhaps Samuel and Abigail did not have the Will proved until after the death of their grandmother in 1818. In 1819 Samuel had a Cottage and Enclosure rated at £2. 3s. 0d on which his assessment was 8/6d. He still lived in the property in 1821 but the owner was a Mr Bond.
    In the same year, Samuel married Elizabeth Arabella BROWN in the Church of St Mary the Virgin in East Stoke. They moved to Blandford where their first two children were born, returning to East Stoke before the arrival of their third child in 1826. Three other children were born before 1835 when at 32 years of age, Elizabeth Arabella died. His children were aged from 2 to 14 years but within six months Samuel had married again, to Jane CHAMP. Amos COBB described his step-mother as being “very kind”.
    For some reason, on the night of the first census in 1841, the family were not all living together. On that night, as Thirza, the eldest daughter, had died in 1836, Amos at 17 was the oldest in the family. He, together with his brother Arthur, sister Eliza and his 3 year old step sister, Abigail, were living in Creech, whilst Samuel and Jane with their own daughter, Mary Anne, together with Elizabeth and Jane by his first wife, were in Stokeford. 
    Several events occured during the next ten years. A son Samuel was born in 1842, dying two years later. Three months after his burial another Samuel was baptised, followed by Thirza (1846) and Charles John (1849). In that year Arthur married Elizabeth MARSH, and Elizabeth married her cousin David COBB.
    It would appear that over the years Samuel was able to rent several plots of land. On the 13th September 1847 he had made an agreement with a William GOODWIN to rent a cottage, ‘tenement’, garden, fuelhouse, together with a piece of ground and a field, then both arable, called Home Close and Poor Close, the latter including the withy bed, all amounting to about four acres and situated in Highwood, in the parish of East Stoke, Dorset. The rent was £10 a year and in addition Samuel had to pay any rates which came due on the property. He was allowed £3. 12s. 2d. in the first two years for repairs which were the responsibility of the previous tentant, but thereafter he had to keep the property in “good tenantable repair” and “manage the land in a proper husbandlike manner”. The agreement was for seven years but then, in the Spring of 1851 Samuel died at the age of 54. Nevertheless, it could be that by this time he was renting several other plots of land. Six years before his death, at the time of the Tithe Apportionment in 1845, a Samuel COBB rented Arable land from Elizabeth ANGEL for 2s 5d. At the same date David BARNES rented a Garden, 2 Arable plots and Rough-Furze to a Samuel COBB for a total of 9s 2d. It is also possible that Samuel still had his original holding rented for 1s 8d from the Reverend Nathaniel BOND who was the largest landowner in the Parish of East Stoke. 
    Samuel was employed in several occupations during his life, Labourer, Brickmaker, Brickburner, Tradesman, Farmer and Builder. Directories show him as a Shopkeeper in 1848, and a Grocer and Dealer in 1851, but his will refers to him as Brickmaker and Farmer. In this document he appears to have little confidence in the future behaviour of his wife, Jane, and following his death his affairs were to be organised by his friend, John HOBBS and the sons by his first wife, Amos and Arthur COBB. Amos went to America, while Arthur spent the rest of his life in Creech, Church Knowle, Dorset. 
    Your Oath is that the within named Samuel Cobb died on or about the twenty eighth day of February One Thousand Eight Hundred and fifty one. That the writing hereunto annexed contains his true last will and testament (with codicil hereto annexed) as far as you know or believe. That you are the joint Executors named in the said will and codicil and that you will truly perform the same by paying first his debts and then the legacies contained in the said will and codicil as far as the goods chattels and credits will thereto extend and the Law requires that you will make a true and perfect inventory of all the said goods chattels and credits and exhibit the same into the Register of the Court of the Archdeacon of Dorset at the time assigned you by the said Court and render a just account hereon when thereto lawfully required. And lastly that the contents of the annexed affidavit to which you have subscribed your names were and are true

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
