Yes must say I was a bit amazed when I first saw this guy living on a wharf with 9 kids. What kind of agriculture is he doing there? He is still around Falmouth in 1851, a gardener at Bishop Baks St Gluvias, with the 4 youngest and a new one William. By 1861 he appears to have a new wife Johanna (St Coulomb 1818) so I guess he remains as active as when he was producing the 12 kids. He is living with the 2 youngest (Ann and William) at Perran Well, near Grace Coad and family. Johanna is working as a washerwoman in "Tredrea" the mansion of Michael Williams, and is counted twice.

I have found an IGI family group record for him with the kids, says his parents were William and Peggy and he was christened 25 May 1801 locally - which does not match up with his Census Kea birthplace around 1799. But if so, he had a sister Mary ch 2/7/1803.Probably Walter (1803, Miner)m Grace, is a brother, and perhaps Benjamin (1805) too.
