Life Events

     James Gowman was born about 1801 in North Tawton, Devon, England, son of James Gowman and Martha Hooper.

In the early 1820s James Gowman left North Tawton and travelled to East Devon to work. His two elder sisters, Susanna and Elizabeth, had travelled to Exeter where they were both married. His two younger sisters, Ann and Maria, also went to East Devon and were both married in Woodley.

James settled in Aylesbeare. There he married Mary Scaddings, the daughter of William Scaddings ( a farmer of Payhembury) and Charity Lake. James and Mary had eleven children; one, Elizabeth, died at the age of 5 months. James Gowman and Mary's children were christened with the surname GORMAN. This spelling has stayed with the family ever since. James was an Agricultural worker.

The majority of labourers were hired on a day to day basis, earing about 8 shillings (40 pence) a week in the 1830's.

In most households it was necessary for all the family to contribute towards the daily needs. Boys, from about the age of 7, often worked alongside their fathers for 10 to 12 hours a day, weeding or picking stones from the fields. The girls were expected to work alongside their mothers in a variety of handicrafts and housework. Schooling was almost unheard of for the labouring classes. It was not until 1870 that education became compulsory for 5-13 year olds in England.

In the 1851 Census they lived at Harpford, Devon named transcribed as GOREMAN.1

On 2 April 1826, James, married Mary Scaddings, aged 20, in Aylesbere, Devon, England.1

James appeared on the census of 2 April 1871 in Goosemoor, Newton Poppleford, Devon, England, as head, 70 years old and crippled.
With him was his grandaughter, Hannah Wilson, whose mother Louisa (nee Gorman), had died six months after her birth.2

He died on Wednesday, 14 May 1873, in Aylesbere, Devon, England, Informant of death, Anna Eveleigh of Aylesbere.1
