Samuel Inder
Samuel is the eldest child of Joseph Inder and Elizabeth Bristow and was born, or baptised, on the 9th of April 1763 in East Lambrook in Kingsbury Episcopi in the county of Somerset.  He was buried on the 12th of May 1838 in Kingsbury Episcopi at the age of 75, however his burial record, if correct, suggests that he was only 65 when he died which means he would have been born in 1773.
On this day in 1763;
  • Sir William Chambers lays out gardens in Kew, near the Thames,
  • A printed cheque is used in Hoare’s bank in London,
  • 8th April, John Stuart, the earl of Bute, resigned as prime minister after just four months over the imposition of a cider tax.
East Lambrook is a village situated in the parish of Kingsbury Episcopi within Somerset.  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 Bath and Wells The pub in the village, the Rose and Crown, dates from the 17th century and is a place that Samuel would have known.
Kingsbury Episcopi is a village and civil parish on the River Parrett in Somerset.  The parish includes the villages of West Lambrook, East Lambrook and Thorney.  It is just two miles north of East Lambrook.  The "Episcopi" part of the village's name means "of the Bishop" in Latin.  It refers to the fact that the village belonged to the Bishop of Bath and Wells and not the nearby abbey at Muchelney.
On the 25th of February 1799 Samuel was a witness to the wedding of his youngest sibling Thomas and Joan Bonning in the parish church of Kingsbury Episcopi.  This was just three weddings before his own to Hannah.  This is likely to be The Church of St Martin which dates from the 14th century and is now designated as a Grade I listed building.  The church, dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours, stands on the site of an earlier Saxon church of which no trace remains and boasts an ornate 100 foot Somerset Tower, made of stone from nearby Ham Hill, possibly built in 1515.  There is a four-bay aisled nave The nave is older than the rest of the church, probably from before 1400 and is not of the late perpendicular style of the tower and other parts of St Martin's.  The four-stage tower is supported by buttresses and has bands of blank quatrefoils, and is surmounted by battlements with pinnacles. The church was renovated between 1845 and 1849.
The couple’s marriage banns were on the 10th, 17th and 24th of  March 1799 and two weeks later Samuel married Hannah Priddle on the 9th of April 1799 in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Both were living in the parish at the time of the wedding which was witnessed by Robert Bennett and William Lock.  On the wedding certificate Hannah signed with her mark suggesting that she was illiterate.
During this year the couple’s first son, Simeon was born in East Lambrook which means that Hannah was pregnant at the time of the wedding.  After the turn of the century, in 1801, Samuel and Hannah had another son, Henry in East Lambrook.
The following year, on the 9th of May 1802 Hannah gave birth to their first daughter, Keziah who they baptised in the Methodist Roundwell Independent Chapel in South Petherton in Somerset.  The chapel was known as Mr Herdsman’s Chapel after the Reverend R. Herdsman.  South Petherton is a village about two miles south of East Lambrook.
In 1803 it appears that they had another son, Robert, although it has not been possible to find a baptism for him.  The likelihood that he is a son is that his marriage was witnessed by Keziah Inder.
Another son, Jacob was born on the 10th of October 1804 and once again baptised in Mr Herdsman’s Chapel three weeks later on the 4th of November.
It was another four years until the birth of another child, Jane in 1808, although again it has not been possible to find a baptism for her.  She was followed in 1810 by Elizabeth and she appears to have been baptised on the 7th of November 1810, although some of the census’s suggest that she was born in about 1807.
Two years later they baptised another son, Stephen in East Lambrook on the 20th of December 1812.  Three years passed and they had another daughter, Sarah in 1815, though it has not been possible to find a baptism for her.
In 1818 on the 19th of April Samuel and Hannah christened another daughter, Harriet in East Lambrook.  Samuel was working as a labourer at the time.  Within a month of this baptism the couple were celebrating again, this time the marriage of their eldest, 19 year-old Simeon to 21 year-old Mary Russell on the 15th of May in Kingsbury Episcopi.
The couple’s last child, Susan was baptised on the 20th of May 1821 in East Lambrook.  Samuel was still working as a labourer at the time of the christening.  Samuel would have been 58 years-old and Hannah 42 years-old at this time.
On the 24th of January 1822, 21 year-old Henry Inder married 19 year-old Sarah Priddle in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Sarah signed with her mark and the marriage was witnessed by Henry’s younger brother, Robert.  They were married by Edward Whiteley whilst he was minister of Martock, some two miles to the east.  Reverend Edward Whiteley (1794 – 1875) is a 3rd great grand uncle on the Hebblethwaite side.  The reverend's sister, Mary married James Hebblethwaite.  Although a Priddle, Sarah does not appear to be related by ‘blood’ to Hannah.

A year later on the 6th of February 1823 their son, Robert married Sarah Staple in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Although Robert signed his name Sarah used her mark.  The marriage was witnessed by his sister Keziah who signed with her mark.  Robert and Sarah went on to emigrate to Allegheny County in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in America.
Five months after Robert’s marriage the couple’s eldest daughter, 21 year-old Keziah married 20 year-old George Bambury in Kingsbury Episcopi on the 8th of July 1823.  They both signed the certificate with their marks.
On the 8th of December 1829 their daughter, Jane married John Napper in Kingsbury Episcopi.  John and Jane both signed with their marks, the witnesses to the marriage, Simeon Inder signed his name but Elizabeth Inder used her mark.
In 1831 on the 1st of May their son, Jacob married Louisa Pople in St. James in Taunton in Somerset.
In the parish of the Isle Abbotts in Somerset, which is about ten miles west of East Lambrook,  their son, 23 year-old Stephen married 20 year-old Ruth Mitcham on the 12th of November 1835.  Ruth signed with her marks and the marriage was witnessed by Sarah Inder, who used her mark and Henry Eves.
At the age of 75 Samuel passed away on the 12th of May 1838 in Kingsbury Episcopi. 
On the 11th of December 1838 their son Jacob, his wife Louisa and two children, Helen aged 8 and Louisa aged 4 arrive in New South Wales in Australia to start a new life.  A third daughter, Anna May who was 17 months old died on the 23rd of September 1838 whilst at sea.
On the 3rd of March 1840 their daughter Harriet married Alford Eves in the parish church of Kingsbury Episcopi which is St. Martin.  Samuel’s occupation is given as Accomptant, which is the old-fashioned word for accountant, notably he is not given as deceased.  Harriet and Alford signed the certificate with their marks.
Three months later on the 4th of June their 25 year-old daughter, Sarah married 24 year-old Simeon Russell and again the wedding took place in St. Martin,  the parish church of Kingsbury Episcopi.  Samuel’s occupation is given once again as Accomptant.  Both of the newly married couple signed the register with their marks.
On the 18th of May 1841 their youngest daughter 20 year-old Susan married Gerrard Male in St. Martin’s in Kingsbury Episcopi. The newlyweds signed the certificate with their marks suggesting that they were illiterate.  Samuel’s occupation is still given as Accomptant.
On the 7th of July 1853 their youngest daughter, Susan was buried in Kingsbury Episcopi at the age of 32.  In 1855 just before Christmas, on the 21st of December, her widow was received into Wilton Gaol in Somerset.  He is described as married, born in Kingsbury and living in Landport and working as a carpenter, being 5 feet 4.5 inches tall, with a fair complexion, hazel eyes and brown hair.  He has three cuts on his left thumb and one in the middle of the right hand.
Having departed on the 26th of September 1854 the couple’s 45 year-old daughter, Jane and her husband John Napper arrived in Hobart in Tasmania, Australia on the 8th of January 1855 aboard the Australasia to start a new life.  They were with their two sons, Charles aged 17 and James aged 15.  Jane was classed as being able to read but not write.

Hannah Priddle
Hannah is the daughter of Henry Priddle and Anna Thomas and was born in 1779 in Picken Bridge, South Petherton in Somerset.  She was baptised in East Lambrook on the 5th of December 1779.  Hannah died on 4th May 1866 in Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset, at age 87. 
South Petherton is a village and civil parish on the River Parrett in Somerset.  It is about four miles south of Kingsbury Episcopi.  The parish includes the hamlets of Yeabridge, Compton Durville, South Harp, and Over Stratton, and is approximately two miles from East Lambrook and  Martock.  It is distinctive for the traditional hamstone construction of many of its buildings.  Historically South Petherton was a market town, but these days is regarded to be a village, with many of its ancient functions having ended by around 1870.
History of the Priddle name.
Priddle is a Somerset name, and not a particular common one.  The Priddle family appears in Tintinhull from at least the middle of the 1400’s, acting as churchwardens and bailiffs of the manor.  They were a prominent family in the life of the village.  Thomas Priddle (d 1546) was a wealthy yeoman farmer in the village and Robert Priddle (d 1557) was a chantry priest at Woolavington in North Somerset. 
In Tintinhull there are two churchwardens 1463-4 T. Predyll and 1864-5 J. Prydell.  It is likely that the name Priddle derives from Prydell.
Another branch of the Priddles is associated with South Petherton, Kingsbury Episcopi and East Lambrook, very close to Tintinhull.  There is evidence of Priddles in the Devon and Dorset area.
20 year-old Hannah married Samuel who was much older at 36 years-old on the 9th of April 1799.  Their Marriage banns were on the 10th, 17th and 24th of March.  On the wedding certificate Hannah signed with her mark indicating that she was illiterate.
Hannah was a former governess.
Noted events in her life were:
*  Living: 9 May 1802, East Lambrook, Somerset, from Keziah’s baptism.
*  Living: 19 Apr 1818, East Lambrook, Somerset.
*  Living: 20 May 1821, East Lambrook, Somerset.
*  She worked as a governess.
Jacob Inder – (1804 – 16/3/1878) – 4th Great Grand Uncle
Jacob was born on 10th of October 1804 in East Lambrook.  He was baptised three weeks later on the 4th of November in Roundwell Street Independent Chapel in South Petherton, known as Mr. Herdsman’s Chapel.
On the 1st of May 1831 Jacob married Louisa Pople in St. James in Taunton in Somerset.  Louisa was from Ireland.
On the 11th of December 1838 Jacob, a carpenter and joiner, and his family arrived in New South Wales in Australia aboard the James Pattison.  With him were his 28 year-old wife who worked as a Nursemaid and his two daughters, Helen aged 8 and Louisa aged 4.  Sadly another daughter Anna May, aged 17 months, died at sea on the 23rd of September.
The record shows that both Jacob and Louisa could read and write and that they were both Wesleyans.  Both Jacob and Louisa claimed £18 bounties and the children, Helen got £10 and Louisa £5.  £18 in 2017 would be worth £1854.
Jacob Inder discovers gold.
(From Correspondents of the Mudgee Newspaper.)  
MERRENDEE DIGGINGS. - The above diggings are situated above twenty two miles from Mudgee, in a southerly direction.  It appears they were first discovered as a goldfield in August, 1851, by Mr. Jacob Inder, of Sydney, but the mode of working for gold at that period being in its infancy, very little was made by the discovery.
However, much attention has at various times been directed to this locality, and several parties have prospected the ground.
Towards the latter end of January last, vague rumours were abroad that gold was being obtained in large quantities.  These statements were confirmed, and, on the 13th of February, the fact of 1150 ounces being obtained in one day increased the excitement, and numbers of miners flocked in from all directions.
From that time to the present the population has been steadily and gradually increasing, and now numbers some 2000 diggers, including women and children.
Instances of individual success, and in some instances large yields have taken place; the general average is also very good.  This week several nuggets from three to eight ounces hare been found.”

St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral and Chapter House, College Street, Sydney, NSW
Constructed: 1866-1928

St Mary’s Catholic Cathedral is the oldest place maintaining its use as a place of worship for the Catholic community in Australia, since its early beginnings in 1821. Constructed between 1866 and 1928, this place is the site of the original St Mary's Cathedral, the first Catholic Church in Australia and can be said to be the birthplace of Catholicism in Australia. The Cathedral is of major architectural significance as the largest 19th century ecclesiastical building in the English Gothic style anywhere in the world and this grand cathedral is a stimulating and worthwhile place to see when in Sydney.
The Chapter Hall is the oldest building on the site of St Mary's Cathedral and believed to have been designed by Augustus Welby Pugin.  It appears to have been commissioned by Archbishop Polding when visiting England in 1841 and was built between 1843 and 1845.  Colonial Architect Mortimer Lewis appears to have selected the site for the Chapter Hall and may have been responsible for overseeing its construction. The building contractor was Jacob Inder.  Initially it was used as a catholic school but was converted to a chapter hall in 1910.
Ship built by Jacob Inder lost at sea in 1873.
Helen, a wooden-carvel built Brigantine sailing ship weighing 63 tons and length of  22.4 m and beam of 5.9 m, was owned by William Wright and built at Jacob Inder & Co. in 1848.  It was registered at Sydney. Registration no. 49/1866.  On the 9th of January 1873, Helen, with Master, Captain Louis Lettis, with a cargo of timber and a crew of six, was lost due to a leakage off between Korogoro Point and Hat Head, Smoky Cape, New South Wales.
Jacob died on 16th of March 1878 in Blue’s Point, North Shore in Sydney in New South Wales, Australia at the age of 73.
