    Note:- Gilbert Richard CARDELL (1844-1933) a carpenter by trade was a native of St Columb in Cornwall the son of John CARDELL an Innkeeper by his wife Constance Drew MARTYN. His wife Martha Mary CAKE (1847-1907) was the daughter of John & Rhoda Sophia CAKE having been baptised at Charminster in Dorset on 6th June 1847. She died in 1907 and was buried at Fordington St George's church on 3rd December that year. They had the following children all baptised at Christchurch West Fordington unless stated otherwise. In April 1880 the existing Vicar the Rev Wm Cook Osborn left Christchurch and was replaced in July by Rev Charles Loyd Sanctuary. He must have been confused as he records the fathers name as John Richard Cardell on baptisms after that date starting with Ada, yet she and subsequent children are shown in census returns as Gilbert's children who was in 1881 living at 41 Grove Buildings in West Fordington with his widowed father-in-law John Cake. Perhaps this is where the name John comes from? By 1891 they had moved to live at 12 Sydney Terrace and were still there in 1913. (1) Eizabeth Emma bap 30 May 1869 she married at Christchurch on 28th March 1910 to William COX a draper's assistant.

    [Note:- Charlotte MOORS was baptised at Christ Church West Fordington the daughter of Robert & Jane MOORS on 31st Oct 1847 so she was 25 when she married.

Clog making was a much more traditional trade in Yorkshire and a typical workshop has been recontructed in Gocar Museum Huddersfield which for many years my mother-in-law helped run so I have sat and watched them being made.
