32. James Trowbridge66 was baptized on 1 Jun 1800 in Bowerchalke, Wiltshire.67 He was born in 1800 in Ebbesbourne Wake, Wiltshire. He was buried in Dec 1864 in Bowerchalke, Wiltshire.68 He died on 28 Dec 1864 in Bowerchalke, Wiltshire.69 He was a Woodcutter.70,71,72 The family of James and Mary was a very large one even by the standard of those days, with nine children out of twelve reaching maturity. The tenth child was baptised Elisha in1839, and was the second son to be christened with that name. The parish register shows that a baby born in 1837 was also christened Elisha, but this child appears to have lived for less than a year. The Vicar's 'Visiting Book' for 1835 notes that he could read, possessed a Bible, Prayer Book etc an was a member of several 'benefit clubs'. He worked for a Mr Large, a local farmer.

The Family of James and Mary Trowbridge appear regularly in the census returns for the Chalk Hundred of Wiltshire under Bowerchalke for the years 1841,1851, and 1861.The returns for 1851, for example, list eight of the surviving nine children; the eldest son, Lot, had married Sarah Oak in 1845 and moved to live with his father-in-law in a neighbouring cottage. According to the three census years cited above the family lived at Woodminton, a small hamlet to the west of Bowerchalke, for at least twenty years. By 1871 James had disappeared from the returns and the parish register records his burial: December 1864 aged 64 . The inquest is intriguing but no further information has been found.
