Thomas is the sixth child of David
Andrews and Jane Bennett and was born in 1789 in the village of Morchard Bishop in
Devon. He was baptised on the 30th of August that year in Morchard Bishop.
In this year, 1789;
From White's Devonshire Directory of 1850;
(BISHOP'S,) a large village, 6 miles N.W. by N. of Crediton, has in its
parish 7088 acres, and 1880 inhabitants, including many scattered houses
and the small hamlets, &c., of
Oldborough, Knightstone, Lowertown, Middlecott, Woodgate, Frost, Redhill,
Leigh, and Woodlane.
. . . J.H. Hippisley, Esq., is lord of the
which anciently belonged to the Bishops of Exeter, and afterwards passed
to the Carew, Southcote, Boucher, and other families. Lady Churchill, J.C.
Churchill, Esq., the Rev. C. Tucker, J. Sillifant, Esq., B.T. Radford,
Esq., the Trustees of the late Rev. G. Gregory, and many smaller owners
have estates in the parish. The
(St. Mary,) is a fine antique structure, with a painted east window, and a
tower containing five bells. The
valued in K.B. at £36, and in 1831 at £635, is in the incumbency of the
Ven. John Bartholomew, M.A., who has 63A. 3R. 5P. of glebe, and a good
residence, built about 60 years ago. J.H. Hippisley, Esq., is the patron,
and the tithes were commuted in 1841, for £750 per annum. Here is a small

Christians. . . .
|Also 1818 saw the birth and baptism on the 8th of February of William in Morchard. Two years later and the couple had a second daughter who they baptised Eliza, on the 10th of September that year in Morchard Bishop. In 1823 another son was born and again they named him John and once again he was baptised in Morchard on the 18th of May 1823. Another two years later they baptised David on the 4th of December 1825 in Morchard. Three years passed until they had another daughter, Jane Mary who they baptised on the 14th of September 1828 also in Morchard. In 1832 their last daughter, Charlotte was born and she was baptised on the 9th of September 1832 in Morchard. Tragically just two years later on Boxing Day 1834 Charlotte died. In the meantime on the 7th of January 1833 the couple’s 22 year-old daughter, Sarah married John Dicker in Morchard.|
In 1841 Richard Sage appears in the
census with Thomas and Mary and two of their children Eliza and Jane Mary,
so there appears to be a connection between Richard Sage and the Andrews
family. All of the household are agricultural labourers and the
family are still living in Morchard.
In 1851 the census shows that Thamas and Mary are not
together on the night of the census.
She is with their son William and
his family in Stoke Canon.
Ten years later in 1861 and Thomas
is unfortunately a widower and is classed as a
lodger at the home of Richard Sage, a house called Chilliford in Morchard. He is there as is his daughter Eliza
is housekeeper, who also works as a Serge Weaver. Listed at the home are
five children and classed as ditto below Eliza's name so have been
as Andrews. Despite the children Richard Sage and Eliza are both classed as
This does make sense as in 1851
Eliza has a son, William and a daughter, Mary J and she is classed as the
head of the household, although at the same address is a Richard Sage who
is also classed as a head of the household. Possibly Richard Sage is the
father of Eliza's children, however both he and Eliza are classed as
unmarried in both the 1851 and 1861 censuses. Richard Sage has been
connected with the Andrews family since at least 1841.
This census reads;
|Thomas married Mary Lee on 26th November 1809 in Morchard Bishop, Devon. Children from this marriage were: i. John Andrews – (1810 – 8/4/1810) ii. Sarah Andrews – (1811 – 1891) iii. John Andrews – (1815 – 29/12/1818) iv. William Andrews – (1818 - ) v. Eliza Andrews – (1820 – 1907) vi. John Andrews – (1823 - ) vii. David Andrews – (1825 – 1885) viii. Jane Andrews – (1828 - ) ix. Charlotte Andrews – (1832 – 26/12/1834)|
end of lineage
Was born in 1791 in Crediton, Devon
and died before 1861. Crediton is about seven miles south-east of
Morchard Bishop. Mary died before 1861 as the census
reveals that Thomas is a widower by then.
