William SLEE (15374)
Family Code: GWENNAPjohn GWENNAPdiggory

BIRTH:
ABT 1801 in Chittlehampton.. Census 1851: age 50, b. Chittlehampton, lodger, "agricultural labourer relies on parish relief"; 1881, age 81, b. Marwood, pauper. Entry of "father, John SLEE" in his daughter Anne's death record was, presumably, an error by a relative.

BEF 1881-AFT 1881: West Down village,DEV

OCCUPATION:
Occupation Note: His daughter Ann's marriage certificate in 1867 described him as a farmer.

GENERAL NOTE:
NOTE: It is assumed that it is the same couple in 1851 and 1881 censuses despite the discrepencies in the birth parishes. Maybe their memories were getting unreliable in their 80s. Chittlehampton is south of Barnstaple, Marwood to the north of the same town, and Fremington to the NW of Barnstaple. In 1881 the couple were living in West Down between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe and very near Marwood, which William then named as his birth parish
