Note on Husband: James Waller CARPENTER

James Waller Carpenter was born on 23rd March 1855 at Higher Withleigh to William and Ann (nee Waller) Carpenter. He was their 9th and last child; William died in 1867 and Ann and James moved to Withleigh Cottage, a smaller house. On leaving school, in 1869, James was apprenticed to a local firm of ironmongers, John Gosling Bristow, of Fore Street, Tiverton. The period to be served was 6 years and a premium of £60 was paid to the employers. In 1875 Mr. Bristow died, and James decided to try his fortune in London, where he worked as an assistant in Holloway for a few months, then in 1896 he decided to set up on his own and rented premises at 258 Harrow Road, Paddington, which at that time was a reasonably wealthy outer suburb of London. Over the next few years the business prospered and expanded
