Table 25 from the 1901 Census

William has come back from America and is living at Nancherrow with Eliza and daughters Bessie and Delpha.

The Star is now owned by a family called Liggoe. Elizabeth is listed as head of the Veale household which suggests that William Bolitho Veale is away somewhere. He died in 1907. Elizabeth is living further up Fore Street. Uncle Tom said they lived in a shop so this could well be the same shop that Jane Trenear ran.

Table 26 from the 1901 Census

1911 Census

There is something very poignant about seeing the handwriting from family from so long ago which is why I have included the extracts from the census documents below.

William and Naomi are still living at 3 Tregeseal and their family has grown. All in the family are recorded as having been born at St Just. William is now working as a drysman. Presumably this is as a result of his mining accident which would have limited his employment choices. If that is the case his South African adventure must have been sometime between 1901 and 1911

There are eight people living in the house which had only 4 rooms including the kitchen.

Martha is now the head of the household at Carrallack Villa

Martha3

Mary Davy is still with her and she has a lodger – Richard Trezise. Her sister Elizabeth died in 1905.

The house is much bigger than the one occupied by Martha’s nephew and his family.

Naomi’s mother, Eliza was still living at Tregeseal and had her grand daughter Olive Warren staying with her on census day.

Eliza Stratton

Louisa was living at Bethany place St Just with her son George.
