Isaac BEER 1840-1909

Isaac was born in 1840 in Yarcombe, Devon. In the 1841 census Isaac is 9 months old, and living with parents Isaac and Ruth BEER, at the Yarcombe Inn, Yarcombe. Only 10 years later he is a farm servant for James SPILLER at Broadly Farm, Yarcombe. In 1861 he is an Agricultural Labourer, living at Staple Fitzpaine, near Taunton, about 8 miles north of Yarcombe.

Marriage to Mary Collins

Some time between 1861 and 1864 Isaac moved further north and across to Cardiff. He married Mary COLLINS in Cardiff in mid 1864 and by the time of the 1871 census they were living at Hayes Farm, Sully. Isaac was still working as an Ag. Labourer.  Sully is a few miles south of Cardiff. The census enumerator obviously had some problems with Isaac's accent, recording him as BEARD, and born in Yarkem.

1871 Census

 Isaac and Mary had six children:

  Born Died
Jane 1867 30 March 1929  
John 1870   
Matilda (Tilly) 1872
Agnes 1874
Isaac Albert 1876
James 1879

In 1881 the family had moved to 32 Dock St, Cogan, Penarth, close to Cardiff:

In late 1884 Mary died (Dec 1884 Cardiff 11a/164).

Marriage to Sarah Ann PRICE

Issac soon married again, to Sarah Ann PRICE. The marriage was recorded at Bedminster (March quarter 1886, 5c/981). Bedminster is now a southern suburb of Bristol, and although Bristol is just across the Bristol Channel from Penarth where Isaac was living, it is not at all clear why the marriage took place there. Sarah Ann had been born in Gloucester in 1850. Sarah was aged 36 at the time of marriage and it appears likely that she had not been married previously.

In the 1891 census Isaac and Sarah Ann are living at 28 James St, Penarth, Wales. With them are sons John, Albert and James, as well as Ethel PRICE (Sarah's niece) and Ruth BEER, Isaac's mother. Isaac occupation appears to be Grocer:

1891

In 1901 Isaac and family had moved around the corner to 19 Maughan St, Penarth. Ethel Price, Sarah's niece is still with them and now they have John Price (probably Sarah's brother) with them as well.

Isaac died in Cardiff in 1909.

There are several death records for Sarah Ann BEER. The most likely is the one for Mar 1911 at Gloucester, her place of birth (6a/232).
