Simeon Inder
Simeon is the eldest son of Samuel Inder and Hannah Priddle and was born in 1799 in East Lambrook in Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset.  He died on the 15th of June 1880 in Martock in Somerset at the age of 81, and was buried on the 19th of June 1880 in All Saints' Parish Churchyard in Martock and is buried in the same grave as his son Jacob Inder, who had died in 1874.
 
The cause of death was senile decay.  The informant of his death was Hannah Staple who was present at his death in Martock.
 
In this year, 1799;
  • 9th of January, Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger introduces income tax of two shillings in the pound to raise funds for Britain's war effort in the Napoleonic Wars;
  • 16th of October, a Spanish treasure convoy worth more than £600 000 is captured by the Royal Navy off Vigo in Spain.
East Lambrook is a village situated in the parish of Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset.  The Grade II* listed manor is a small 15th century manor house and is regarded for its gardens.  The manor was bought in 1939 by Margery Fish and her husband W. G. Fish.  The gardens were planted by Margery Fish from 1938 until her death in 1969.  She wrote several books on such "cottage gardens", some still in print, and held the National Collection of Geraniums.  The gardens have been preserved and remain open to the public under subsequent owners.
 
The Anglican Church of St. James dates from the 12th century.  The parish is part of the benefice of Martock with Kingsbury Episcopi and Ash within the Diocese of Baths and Wells.  The village pub is the Rose and Crown, which dates from the 17th century, and so would have been familiar to Simeon.
 
On the 15th of May 1818 Simeon and Mary married in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Mary would have been pregnant at the time since their eldest child Luke was born on the 1st of November 1818 in East Lambrook.  All-in-all they had seven sons and three daughters, who were born between 1818 and 1839.  Simeon signed the marriage certificate but Mary used her mark, which shows that Mary was illiterate.
 
As mentioned before Luke was born on the 1st of November 1818 and baptised the following week on the 7th in East Lambrook, presumably in St. James Church.  At this time Simeon was working as a Labourer.  It can be assumed that all the christenings too place at St. James though at present the documents do not confirm this.
 
This was just a few months after the baptism of his own sister Harriet on the 19th of April also in East Lambrook.

St. James Church, East Lambrook
 
Three years later in 1821 they had a daughter, Ann who was also born in East Lambrook.  They baptised her on the 20th of May that year and Simeon was still working as a labourer.
 
On the 13th of June 1823 they celebrated the birth of another son, Jacob again in East Lambrook and two days later on the 15th they baptised him.  A month later and Simeon was witness to the marriage of his sister, Keziah to George Bambury on the 8th of July.  Simeon signed with his mark suggesting that he was illiterate.
 
Two years later the couple christened another son, this time named after Simeon.  Simeon junior was baptised on the 10th of July 1825 in the Parish of East Lambrook again. By now Simeon senior was working as a butcher, a profession he was to keep for the rest of his life.
 
On the 14th of October 1827 Mary gave birth to another daughter, Matilda in Martock.  At present it has not been possible to find a baptism for her.  So between the births of Simeon and Matilda the family had moved to Martock.
 
Two years later on the 7th of November 1829 the couple had another son, Walter who the christened in Martock on the 6th of January the following year, probably in All Saints' Church.  In between time on the 8th of December 1829 Simeon was witness to another wedding, this time for his sister Jane to John Napper, and again he signed with his mark.
 
Pigot’s Directory of 1830 shows that Simeon was one of four butchers in Martock along with James Gale, John Gale and John Parker.
 
Pigot’s describes Martock at this time as;
MARTOCK is an extensive and respectable village and hundred of itself, about two miles and a half from South Petherton; situated in a flat and agricultural country, and enlivened by the river Parret, which passes through the village.  It was of some consequence, at one period, in the manufacture of fine description of gloves, which is now much reduced.  The place is said to derive its name from Mart and Oak, a market being formerly held under an oak tree, in the centre of town, long since removed, and a fluted stone column, a model of the celebrated pillar of Trajan, erected on its site.  Wyndham Gooden, Esq. is the lord of the manor, and hold a court-leet in October.  The church is a large and elegant structure, having a superb altar-piece.  The living is a vicarage, in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Wells.  An independent and Armenian chapel are the other places of worship.  An annual fair is held on the 21st August.  The population of the parish and hundred, by the census of 1821, was 2,560.
 
On the 12th of August 1832 the couple baptised another son, Samuel, once again in Martock.  Unfortunately within a year, on the 8th of February 1833, Simeon and Mary buried their son Simeon in Martock, he was just seven years old.
 
In 1834 the couple had another daughter, Ellen and on the 12th of October 1834 in Martock Simeon and Mary baptised her.
 
Three years after the death of Simeon junior the couple had another son and also called him Simeon.  They baptised him on the 13th of November 1836 in Martock and almost three years later on the 8th of September 1839, Simeon and Mary christened their last child, Charles.
 
In Bragg’s Directory of 1840, Simeon Inder is running the Butchers Arms in North Street in Martock.  Whether it was a case of him naming the pub or not it is an appropriate name.
 
The 27th of May 1841 saw Simeon and Mary celebrating the marriage of their daughter Ann to Henry Isaac in the Parish Church in Martock.  Ann would have been heavily pregnant at the time of the wedding as her daughter, Elizabeth was born just one month later.
 
The census that was taken on the 6th of June 1841 shows that the family of Simeon and Mary and their children aged from 20 to 2 years old, though Luke was actually 22, are living in North Street in Martock.  Simeon was still working as a butcher at this time.

The family were also neighbours of their daughter Ann and her shoemaking husband Henry Isaac.
 
Shortly after the census was taken 22 year-old Luke married 21 year-old Mary Ann Gale on the 2nd of September that year in Martock.  Luke had followed in his father’s footsteps and was working as a butcher in Bower Hinton which is just a mile and a half from Martock.
 
All Saints' Church, Martock

 

Pigot’s Directory of 1842 now shows that Simeon was one of five butchers in Martock along with Edward Culliford, John Gale, Luke Inder, his son, and John Inder who is possibly a relative although any family connection is yet to be found, but in other directories he is listed as Indoe.  Also Pigot’s lists Simeon as a retailer of beer.
 
Pigot’s now describes Martock at this time as;
MARTOCK is an extensive and respectable village and hundred of itself, about two miles and a half from South Petherton, and four and a half s.w. by w. from Ilchester; situated in a flat and agricultural country, and enlivened by the river Parret, which passes through the village.  It was of consequence, at one period, in the manufacture of fine description of gloves, which has quite fallen into decay: the inhabitants are now chiefly employed in agriculture.  The place is said to derive its name from Mart and Oak, a market being formerly held under an oak tree, in the centre of town, long since removed, and a fluted stone column, a model of the celebrated pillar of Trajan, occupies its site.  The lord of the manor (Wyndham Gooden, Esq.) holds a court-leet in October.  The church of All Saints, is a large and elegant structure, having a superb altar-piece and a fine embattled tower.  The living is a vicarage, in the gift of the dean and chapter of Wells.  There are two chapels for dissenters, and a free grammar school, founded with a small endowment in 1661, by a person named Strode.  An annual fair is held on the 21st August.  In 1831 the population of the parish was 2841, and in 1841, 3025.
 
On the 19th of February 1844 the couple had the sad task of burying their youngest child, Charles in Martock.  He had passed away the day before at the young age of five.
 
In 1847 Simeon was still working as a butcher but by now he had expanded his interests and was also a publican at the Butcher’s Arms in Martock.    It also appears that he had a transport business.
 
In June of that year Mary sadly died.  However just six months later Simeon, now 48 years-old had remarried.  He married 45 year-old widow Ann Horwood on the 13th of December in All Saints' Parish Church in Martock.  Ann, nee Locock, had previously been married William Horwood.  The marriage certificate gives both ages as full and neither father is given, perhaps they were both deceased as Simeon’s father Samuel had died in 1837.  Simeon’s profession is given as Butcher and there is no mention of being a publican.
 
A couple of months later on the 17th of August Simeon’s 24 year-old son, Jacob married 22 year-old Mary Elliott in Martock.  The couple went on to have eight children.
 
 
In 1850 Hunt & Co.’s Directory gave the following information and confirmation that Simeon was involved in the transport business from North Street in Martock.
 
HUNT & CO.'S 1850
DIRECTORY & TOPOGRAPHY
OF THE TOWN OF MARTOCK AND SOUTH PETHERTON.
“in all places, where there are objects worthy of detail or observation, there should be a short printed Directory, for the use of the stranger.” Dr.Johnson.
Martock is a hundred of itself, 4 1/2 miles S.W. by W. from Ilchester, and 2 1/2 miles from South Petherton, it is a very extensive village, and the high respectability of the inhabitants, and its immediate neighbourhood, combined with the beauties of the surrounding country, render it a most agreeable place of residence, it is situated in an agricultural district, and within a radius of its parish church there are 67 parishes, with an aggregate population according to the census of 1841, of 5114 inhabitants, its own population being at the same time 3025.
 
The principal street is wide, at one end is situated the Hall and the fluted stone column - a model of Trajan's pillar - at the other end stands the church; this building is an elegant and handsome gothic structure, possessing a fine tower, nor is the interior less worthy of admiration, its elaborate roof of fretted carved oak, with its splendid altar-piece is very beautiful, it is in exceeding good preservation, and kept in excellent repair, the living is a gift of the Dean and Chapter of Wells.
 
Opposite the chancel end of the church a handsome stone building has been erected, as a National School for boys and girls, there is also an endowed Grammar School.
The river Parret separates Martock from the neighbouring town and parish of South Petherton, and its north western extremity is bounded by the river Ivel, the former is navigable to Bridgewater, and affords facilities for an extensive trade in coals, timber, slate, &c., in the village are chapels for dissenting congregations; a fair takes place annually on the 21st of August.
 
Martock hundred consist of an area of 7302 acres of highly productive land, 500 0f which are orchard.

The following years edition in 1851 of Hunt & Co.’s Directory shows that there are six butchers now in Martock.  Including Simeon they are Edward Culliford, Luke Inder, Walter Inder, John Indoe and William Paine.  It is quite possible that John Indoe may have been John Inder in the Pigot’s Directory.
 
 
On the 1851 census Simeon’s wife, Ann is given as being aged 49 and a butchers wife.  The couple are still living in North Street in Martock with Simeon’s sons, Samuel and Simeon and his daughter Ellen.  Samuel is classed as an assistant, presumably Simeon’s and Young Simeon, aged 14 it is difficult to read his occupation, but it appears to be ‘assistant to his father’.  Ellen is an apprentice dressmaker.

On the 16th of July 1854 Simeon’s son Simeon, who was just 18 years-old married 24 year-old Mary Jane Brown in St. Paul’s in Portland Square in Bristol, Gloucestershire.
 
In 1854 Simeon’s daughter, Matilda emigrated to Australia and at the age of 27 married 24 year-old Charles Cleave, an ex-convict from Devon on the 10th of January 1855 in Ross in Tasmania.  The couple had six children and her descendants still live in Tasmania.
 
The following month on the 4th of February Simeon's son, 25 year-old Walter married 22 year-old Ann Cribb in the Church of St. John in Clerkenwell in Middlesex.  The 1851 Hunt & Co Directory had shown that Walter had followed in his father’s profession and was working as a butcher, and this is confirmed on the marriage certificate.
 
After the 1851 census some of Simeon’s children emigrated.  His son Samuel emigrated to Australia and on the 29th of October 1857 married Sarah Robertson in Tasmania.  He later moved to New Zealand at the same time as his brother, Walter in 1862, and was buried there in 1915.
 
In 1858 Simeon’s fourth son Walter and his wife, Ann, and family emigrated to Tasmania in 1858 and later moved to New Zealand in 1862 at the same time as his brother Samuel.  Walter was also buried in New Zealand in 1891.
 
In the Parish Church in Martock on the 4th of February 1858 Simeon’s daughter, 24 year-old Ellen married 25 year-old Simeon Napper.  The marriage certificate shows that Simeon Inder was still working as a butcher and that he was literate as he witnessed the marriage.  Sometime after their marriage Ellen and Simeon also emigrated to Tasmania, her in laws had emigrated five years earlier.  Then in 1862 Ellen and her family moved to Victoria and she is buried there.
 
Also in that year on the 7th of June Simeon’s eldest son Luke, who had worked as a butcher, died in Martock at the age of just 39.  He was buried five days later on the 12th in Martock. 
 
The 1859 edition of the Bristol Post Office Directory & Gazetteer lists the butchers in Martock as;
Culliford, Edward, Stapleton Road
Indoe, John, Hinton
Inder, Mary Ann, East Street
Inder, Simeon, sen., North Street
Isaac, Andrew, Ash
 
Also listed in the same directory for Inns and Hotels is ;
George – Simeon Inder, Church Street.
 
It should be noted that the entry does not say senior, so is likely to Simeon junior.
 
In 1861 the census shows that Simeon and Ann are still in North Street in Martock and that all of Simeon’s children have left home by this time.  Of course Simeon is still working as a butcher.

Since both Simeon Senior and Simeon Junior were publicans then the entries in the London Gazette in the 1860’s could be for either, though more likely to be for Simeon Junior considering that Simeon Senior would have been in his 60’s by then and considering the second states that he is a butchers assistant.
 
 
London Gazette January 17 1862

In 1866 news reached home that Matilda had died on the 21st of May that year in Ross in Tasmania, she was just 38 years old.  She was buried in the Ross Anglican Cemetery.  An inscription on the grave says that she was born in 1829 and was 37 at the time of her death.
 
A year later and Simeon's daughter Ellen had died at the age of 33 on the 26th of January 1867 in Sale in Victoria, Australia.  It seems that Ellen’s married life was full of tragedy as Ellen and her husband had three children, Simeon John Inder Napper (1863 – 1863), Augustus Charles Napper (1864 – 1865) and Mary Jane Napper (1866 – 1867) who all died at about the age of one.
 
In 1868 Simeon was widowed a second time when his wife Ann died.  She was buried in Martock on the 6th of May at the age of 66, though the burial register says that she was 64.
 
The Parish registers for Martock show that Simeon Inder, widower and Elizabeth Hale, widow had their marriage banns read on the 13th, 20th and 27th of December 1868 in preparation for their marriage the following year on the 5th of January.  This was Simeon’s third marriage and he was 70 years-old at the time and Elizabeth, whose maiden name was Grinter, was 60 years-old.  Although the marriage banns say that he was 68 and she was 60 years-old.
 
 
Just a few months later his old housekeeper and his son Jacob and grandson Charles were involved in a court case.
 
Western Gazette 09 April 1869
County Petty Sessions, Wednesday – Before G. Harbin, Esq. (Chairman), Capt. F. Messiter, F. M. Eastment, Esq., and A. Wood, Esq. -  Jacob Inder, Mary Inder, his wife, and Charles Inder, his son, all of Martock, were summoned by Sarah Richards, for an assault on March 9th.   Mr. Jolliffe prosecuted, and Mr. S. Watts defended.  This case occupied the attention for a considerable time, but the facts may be briefly stated as follow: - Complainant had acted as housekeeper for Mr. Simeon Inder, of Martock, father of Jacob Inder, for about six months, until the old gentleman married again in January last.  Considerable ill-feeling arose between complainant and defendants, and foul expressions had been freely used towards Mrs. Richards.  On the day in question, complainant went to Mr. Simeon Inder’s house, where she met Mrs. Mary Inder.  A row took place between them, and complainant was pushed out of the house by the male defendants.  When she was outside the house, Jacob Inder threw a dirty mat at her.  Complainant had her clothes torn, her body was bruised, and her left arm was injured.  Simeon Inder, Emma Keirle, Mrs. Jane Pulman, Hannah Marie Pulman, and Mrs. Mary Elliott were called to support the case.  For the defence, Mrs. Elizabeth Inder was called to prove the complainant had used threatening language towards Charles Inder.  Defendants were fined £2, including costs.
 
 
In 1871 Simeon and Elizabeth are living on North Street in Martock and Simeon was now classed as a master butcher.  Simeon must be doing well as the couple are now in a position to have a domestic servant, Sarah Ann Holly aged 14.

North Street is the same street that his son, Jacob and his family are living on and Jacob is working as a bootmaker.  It is possible that the street is the main commercial area of Martock.  
 
In All Saints' Parish Churchyard in Martock is the grave of Simeon and his son Jacob and of Albert Simeon Inder, who is Simeon's great grandson and Jacob's grandson. 
 
On the 19th of November 1874 Jacob died at the age of 51 and was buried six days later on the 25th.  Six years later on the 15th of June 1880 Simeon passed away at the age of 82. 
 
The grave is a headstone that is surmounted by a cross and lies north west of the church in a very large area on the north side of the central pathway, lined with Irish yew trees.
Between July and October 1999 the inscription was recut and painted.  Unfortunately an error was made and the second named person died in 1874 and not in 1871, as recut, and is confirmed by the parish register.
 
Simeon Inder, died 15th June 1880, aged 82.
And his son, Jacob Inder, died 19th November 1874, aged 50.
Also, Albert Simeon Inder, born 28th June 1888, died 19th August 1888.
 
The Parish records for Jacob say he was buried on the 25th November 1874, aged 51.
For Albert the Parish records state that he was buried on the 23rd August 1888, aged 7 weeks.

Simeon married Mary Ann Russell on the 15th of May 1818 in Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset. 
 
Children from this marriage were:
i.      Luke Inder – (1/11/1818 – 1858)
ii.    Ann Inder – (1821 - )
iii.   Jacob Inder – (13/6/1823 – Dec 1874)
iv.   Simeon Inder – (1825 – 1833)
v.    Matilda Inder – (14/10/1827 – 21/5/1866)
vi.   Walter Inder – (7/11/1829 – 5/7/1891)
vii.  Samuel Inder – (12/8/1832 – 1915)
viii. Ellen Inder – (1834 – 1867)
ix.   Simeon Inder – (1836 – 1918)
x.    Charles Inder – (1839 – 18/2/1844)
 
   
Mary Russell
Mary was born about 1799 in Somerset and died in April 1847 in Martock in Somerset. 
 
On August 11th 1799 there is a baptism for ‘Mary Daughter of Isaac & Sarah Russell’ in Wincanton in Somerset.  This is about 20 miles east from Kingsbury Episcopi, where she married, and throws a bit of doubt as to whether she is the daughter of Isaac Russell and Sarah Winter.  However she is the only Mary Russell that can be traced around this area at the moment.  But there is also a record of the marriage in Laverton in Somerset which is about 25 miles north of Wincanton, about 45 miles from Kingsbury Episcopi.
 
Her death is recorded as;
April May June 1847, Yeovil Volume 10, Page 428.
 
The burial register for the Parish of Martock states that Mary was living in Martock, presumably in North Street, at the time of her death and that she was buried on the 20th of April 1847 at the age of 50.  This suggests that she was born in 1797.

On the 24th of February 1822 Ann married William Horwood in All Saints Parish Church in Martock.  Both William and Ann signed the marriage certificate with their marks, which could also explain why her surname is given as Lowcock.

Simeon Inder junior (1836 – 1918)
 
Simeon Inder junior was eleven years old when his mother died and when his father remarried.  Simeon Senior besides running a butchers shop, also had the Butchers Arm's and also had a local transport & carrier business.  As a child Simeon junior would have been versed in all these businesses.
 
The 1851 census shows him as living with his father and at 14 years old his profession is shown as 'assisting his father'.

On the 16th of July 1854 Simeon married Mary Jane Brown at St. Paul's in Portland Square in Bristol.  Mary Jane was six years older than he was.
 
Simeon had a life working in and around the wine, spirits and beer industry and when he lived in Martock he was both a commercial traveller as well as being the proprietor of the George Hotel.  No doubt it was his wife, Mary Jane, who actually ran the hotel and with a family the size of theirs, nine children between 1855 and 1869, it must have been a pretty busy life.
 
In 1861 census, his wife Mary Jane (nee Brown - from Kingsbury Episcopi) is shown as the Innkeeper of the George Hotel.

Simeon is not on the 1861 census anywhere in England, it is possible that with his travelling he is abroad.
 
On the 22nd of June 1862 their daughter Ellen Blanche was christened in Martock and two years later on the 10th of April 1864 Matilda was born, in both instances Simon's occupation is given as carrier.  Christmas Day 1865 and a son, Simeon was born followed on the 1st of August 1867 by Susan Kate, both again in Martock and Simeon's occupation is now a railway carrier.  But by the time Ada Cornelia was born on the 20th of June 1869 Simeon was working as a clerk.
 
A descendant of Simeon today lives in Martock.  She says that Simeon came from the Fleur de Lys in Stoke sub Hamdon, and in 1866 went to London.  He also employed an ostler, and himself ended up in the goods transport professions.  An ostler is a groom or stableman employed to look after the horses of people staying at an inn.  Eli Allen is presumably engaged in Simeon’s trade.  After the arrival of the Railway in Martock in 1849, all the stabling facilities at The George, hitherto used for post horses for the London to Exeter stagecoaches, lend themselves to different uses. Ostling being one multi-use, succeeding proprietors of The George engaged in many different professions, beside running a Hotel and Public House.
 
In 1866 the Kelly's Trade Directory lists him as a carrier and agent for the Bristol & Exeter railway.  As the information on the George Hotel website says he was landlord at the George from 1859 to 1866, though it has not been able to confirm these website dates.
 
"The Western Flying Post, Yeovil", dated the 2nd of 1866 shows the birth of a son and list Mr Simeon Inder jnr. as being of the Bristol and Exeter Railway Goods Delivery Department. This son would have been his fourth son, but he was named Simeon, so this would have been important to him. 
 
His children were William, born 1855, in Martock; John, born 1857, in Stoke sub Hamdon; Hannah (Anne), born 1859, in Stoke sub Hamdon; Harry (Henry) born 1860, in Martock; Ellen, born 1864, in Martock; Matilda, born 1864, in Martock; Simeon, born 1866, in Martock; and Susan, born 1868, in Martock.  Simeon therefore must have lived in Stoke sub Hamdon for a couple of years around 1857 – 1859; possibly up until they took over the management of the George Hotel.  This ties in with the belief that he came from the Fleur de Lys in Stoke sub Hamdon to the George Hotel.

The 1871 census shows the family living in North Street in Martock, but again Simeon is not registered as being at home. The eldest son William, now aged 15 is shown as being a brewers clerk and the second son John, now aged 14 as a solicitors general clerk.  Simeon appears to be lodging in the St. George area of London and working as a clerk.
 
The 1881 census shows the family as having moved to St Mary, Islington, London. Here Simeon's occupation is given as commercial traveller.  As he started his work career as an agent for the railway, this would have been of a travelling salesman nature.  This probably explains why he was not at home in either the 1861 or 1871 censuses.  In this 1881 census it shows his oldest son, William, as being married with three children and employed as a railways accounts collector.  His second son, John, is listed as the same profession as his father, a commercial traveller; his first daughter Hannah as a master mariners wife; his third son Harry as a compositor; his second daughter Ellen as a dressmaker; his fourth son, Simeon, as railways clerk and his third daughter Susan as a scholar.

In 1891, Simeon and Mary Jane, are shown as living at Waltham Cross, Cheshunt, in Hertfordshire and his profession as Brewery Manager.
 
In 1901, Simeon and Mary Jane, are shown as living at Eagle Hall, High Street, Southgate, London and his profession as a Wine, Spirits and Beer Merchant.

Mary Jane Inder's death is recorded in Hackney, London in late 1910 and Simeon's death is recorded in Islington, London in early 1918.
