In Reply to: John Bale of Barnstaple UK 1850 by Ted Webber of 363

Your John Bale may be related to my ancestor, George Bale. George was born 1798 and died in 1880 at South Molton, Devon. He was married to Mary Boyles (1795-1881) at South Molton. Their daughter Martha, born 1828 at Filleigh, married William Youatt and immigrated to America in 1882. Prior to immigration, Youatt was a stonecutter/mason at Castle Hill, living at Swimbridge and Filleigh. Possible sibling to Martha is Henry Bale, a gardener by occupation who appeared in the 1881 British Census as follows:
Henry BALE Head M Male 64 Swimbridge, Devon, England Gardener
Mary BALE Wife M Female 64 Barnstaple, Devon, England Gardeners Wife
Henry BALE Son U Male 38 Bishops Tawton, Devon, England Waterman 6/3
George BALE Son U Male 27 Barnstaple, Devon, England Master Painter Employing 1 Apprentice
Mary Ann BALE Daur U Female 23 Barnstaple, Devon, England Gardeners Daughter
Agnes BALE Daur W Female 39 Brendon, Devon, England Seamstress
William Henry BALE Son U Male 10 Barnstaple, Devon, England Scholar
Samuel BALE Son Male 7 Barnstaple, Devon, England Scholar

These Barnstaple Bales must be related so if anyone can add to this, it would be appreciated.
