Known Places of Residence:
After their marriage it is assumed the couple lived either at Bedworth, where Sarah's parents lived, or had moved to Exhall. At that time Exhall was recorded as being a pleasant well wooded agricultural area. The houses were lacking any services and water was from a village pump. Most families kept a pig.
Unfortunately after only 11 years of marriage Sarah died in 1833, leaving Joseph to raise the 4 young children alone. Tragically, only 4 years later Joseph also died. The orphaned children were apparently split up, 8 year old Elizabeth going to stay with her grandmother Eliza Barkby at Crows Nest, Bedworth while the 3 boys: Thomas 13; Joseph 11 and Emanuel 4 went to live with their aunt, Ann Wakelin at Lentons Lane about 2 miles away.
Death: Joseph died in 1837, at the stated age of 32 (he was probably older than this), and was buried on the 25th April 1837 at Exhall Church.
