752 1891 census shows James occupying 2 rooms at 6 Trinity Place STANTON, James (I293)
 
753 1897 - Emigrated to the Yukon as gold prospector.

1903 - Briefly returned to tour Europe and visit his mother in England for Christmas. On leaving the Yukon he took out a "large poke" (large some of money) having "taken part in many interesting experiences" according to the Yukon Sun dated Wednesday September 23rd 1903, through selling claims on French Hill to O.R. Brenner. His partners in "13 Eldorado" at that time included Dunham, Sheets and Higgins.

1906 - Returned to Canada via New York City. Ellis Island records for 5th March 1906 have him arriving aboard the "Carmania" from Liverpool. Recorded as "In Transit" to Dawson City, Yukon. Occupation: "Miner". He clearly still retained some wealth since he arrived as a respectable "Second Cabin" Passenger, rather than in common "Steerage".
Carmania - Built by John Brown & Company, Clydebank, Scotland, 1905. 19,566 gross tons; 650 (bp) feet long; 72 feet wide. Steam turbine engines, triple screw. Service speed 18.5 knots. 2,650 passengers (300 first class, 350 second class, 2,000 third class).Refitted in 1926 to cabin, tourist, third.Two funnels, two masts. Built for Cunard Line, British flag, in 1905 and named Carmania. Liverpool-New York service. Served as an armed merchant cruiser, then troopship 1914-18. Scrapped at Blyth in 1932.

August 1913 - Lost in woods whilst on a prospecting trip on the Moose Horn River, 20 miles from Teslin Lake in British Columbia. Body never found.

He left Bristol, England to seek his fortune prospecting for gold from the town of Eldorado in the Yukon in the 1890's. He did make quite an impression out there by all accounts - particularly in one account in the Yukon Sun of 23 September 1903. Here he is featured setting off for England (after taking out a "large poke" - presumably meaning alot of money) to visit his family and tour Europe after selling claims at "French Hill". The newspaper also states that Edward (or "Teddy") "has taken part in many interesting experiences"! The fascinating part is that the (rather worn) copy of the newspaper I have has been "censored" by the careful tearing out of an anecdote of a shooting incident - only the final line remains - "...the cheek by a bullet and bears the scar left by the wound to this day." Hmm.

Dawson News Article mentions Teddy leaving for the UK:
http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=PFcjAAAAIBAJ&sjid=-CgDAAAAIBAJ&dq=cullinane&pg=3727%2C3039829

Teddy returned to the Yukon after having brought back gifts for his family (I have gold tie pin stamped "Dawson" which he presented to my great grandmother during his Christmas 1903 visit).
The sad part of the tale is that he was lost whilst on a prospecting trip in the woods near Teslin Lake on the Yukon/ British Columbia border in July/August 1913. His body was never found, though his prospecting partner Reginald Naish, was. I have a copy of Naish's harrowing tale of having an accident with their raft on the river. They lost their knives and other tools with which they could have repaired the craft. Also Teddy had fallen ill. Naish made camp at the riverside and left Teddy to seek help only to become more hopelessly lost. He was eventually found, delirious with hunger after 20 days by a group of prospectors who happened to be in the area. Teddy was never seen again. On returning to the camp the afore-mentioned group could only find the makeshift camp where he had been left, and his husky dogs roaming free nearby. (The "family story" went that he had been eaten by his husky's! Though there is no evidence to support this).

After his death Teddy's mother Eliza (nee Child) back in Bristol, fought a long battle by letter with the Canadian authorities to gain access to her sons lands etc in the Klondyke. She had been left penniless by Teddy's death as his incoming also supported her. I don't know if her battle was ever won, though judging by the few papers of hers I have, I believe she probably did get something back though it took a good 12 years and she died not long after in 1923.

772 Account from Mervyn of staying with "Aunt Deb" and family ("Essex Street Relatives") while his mother Annie May HEATH was in hospital due to a car accident! (See notes for Annie May.
"Luckily Dad was not injured and I think he was able to look after Ron and Cliff (my older brothers) at home, but arrangements were made for me to stay with Mother’s aunt, my great-aunt Deb, who lived in Essex Street, Bedminster.
Other than being in hospital myself (for tonsils or something), this was the first time I had been away from home without my parents, but Aunt Deb, apart from being very small, and very old and wizened, was also very kind and welcoming and her family made a great fuss of me. I had never known Aunt Deb’s husband, Samuel Charles Heath (my grandfather’s brother), who had died many years before my visit. Apparently he had been a Registered Dairyman in Essex Street, Bedminster, where they lived, since their marriage in 1892 and she had finally taken the business over from him until 1918. Now she was living in retirement with a son and daughter. I still happily recall them all:
At home there was Victor Emmanuel, unmarried, then 30ish, a postman after retirement from service in the Merchant Navy. There was also Dora, younger and jolly, and working at Wills’ cigarette factory in Bedminster. The eldest son, Edwin Charles, I think was married and living in his own accommodation by then, as were Arthur and Sydney. (Edwin I think was married to ‘Glad’ [Gladys]?). ‘Syd’, I remember well, was married to ‘Beat’ [Beatrice]; he was a Rep. for ‘George’s’ (later ‘Courage’) Breweries and apparently had developed the propensity for proving his loyalty to the Company by testing the alcoholic content of its output with every customer he would visit during his working day (much like his uncle, William Charles, my grandfather, who had been a steward with Campbell’s White Funnel Channel steamers - but surely Syd was not quite so brutal to his family as he!). (Syd and Beat later had a son, Brian) I once met Arthur, and later his wife (Laura, I believe she was), and thought them both very nice - I remember at some time they opened a Milk or Sandwich bar in High Street (in the middle of town) for a while. Apart from the pleasure of my meeting previously unknown relatives and giving my Mum a bit of a rest, I enjoyed my week or two with my Essex Street relatives, but, even more so, I was happy to be able to come home and have my brothers to annoy and occasionally argue with once again . . . ."

785 Arabella's birth certificate shows she was born on 2nd September 1848 at 9 Harford St to Matilda Mabbutt, formerly White and father is Richard Mabbutt.
Arabella (the elder daughter) at the age of 19 married George BLACKBURN (a seaman, aged 22) on 25 December 1867 at St. James, Bristol, Gloucs. John Charles HEATH and her sister, Matilda, were witnesses. The 1881 Census, however, shows George BLACKBURN resident at Plymouth as "Mate of the "Alice" , and the same Census shows Arabella, aged 32, living as wife of Samuel BENNETT, shoemaker, aged 30, (born Plymouth, Devon), back in Bristol together with her mother, Matilda STEWART, now aged 59, and Samuel HEATH, her nephew, aged 12 (i.e. the Samuel Charles HEATH mentioned above).

787 Bill was employed by Carreras Ltd. the Tobacco company, part of the Imperial Tobacco Company Ltd. which went on to become part of British American Tobacco Plc. There are photos of him in Calcutta where Carreras had their sub-continental base, though it is not known whether he spent a significant amount of time in the sub-continent.

Apparently Bill bought lavish Xmas presents for all family children in 1958. One such child remembers receiving a (very expensive) No.8 meccano set though he had never met him!

790 Census shows living next door to "Old Court House" possibly nr junction with King Street. BRUMWELL, Elizabeth (I1345)
 
791 Chapelhay was heavily bombed during the second World War and many buildings had to be demolished. Chapelhay takes its name from being the site of an old chapel of St. Nicholas. Hence the original name of Chapelhay Street beside the Old Town Hall was St. Nicholas Street as it led to the chapel. The chapel suffered badly during the Civil War when it was used as a fort and was destroyed not long after. Here again was a scene of heavy fighting and much bloodshed. Very little remains of Chapelhay's previous history. A stone column from the St. Nicholas Chapel is in Weymouth Museum and the original stone steps mentioned by Coker still exist in part but are hidden. The route beside Holy Trinity church up to Chapelhay, known as Chapelhay Steps, has moved from its original setting. A decision was made in 1870 to improve access to Chapelhay and eventually some years later, plans were put forward for this to be carried out and in 1884 some houses just to the west of the church were demolished. At the same time Holy Trinity church was extended and the new approach to Chapelhay was completed in December 1884. http://www.weymouth-dorset.co.uk/oldweymouth.html
Clearly it seems that "Chapelry West" mentioned in the census no longer exists. Perhaps these were the houses to the West of Holy Trinity Church mentioned above that were demolished. Or they may have been further up the hill on Chapelhay. The residence above William's in the census is noted as "Cottage behind Church" which must refer to Holy Trinity Church which was built in 1836.
