John Peacey,carpenter, was born about 1812 in Charlton Kings, married (1) Martha Westmancoat, born 1811 in Leckhampton. Here is something I learned earlier this year: the family sometimes went by the surname MUSTO(sometimes spelled Mustoe). You can find John & Martha listed in the 1841 Census as Mustoes and in 1851 as Peaceys. By 1861, Martha has died (don't have a date for that) and John Mustoe is married to Matilda (nee' Smith)born about 1841 in Ampney. A descendant from this line says John and Matilda were married in 1861. Now here's where it gets interesting. While John was married to Matilda, your Melatiah married her sister, Ellen Smith. Joseph Smith was the father of these girls. He was born about 1796 in Ampney Crucis. By 1871 John Peacey is listed as a timber merchant. He last appears in the Census in 1891,age 77 with these children listed as living at home : Martha Ellen,29,dressmaker, William George,28,carpenter, Francis Charles,24,blacksmith,Albert John,19,wheelwright,
Florence Kate,17,dressmaker, Frederick Douglas,12,scholar,
Edith May, Ernest Walter,5,scholar. Matilda last appears in the 1901 Census as a 60 year old widow. I hope some of this helps. I would love to learn anything you know about
Melatiah's family and their descendants. I'm still pretty sketchy there so anything you could fill in would be appreciated. Cheers!
