I am now about 32 yrs of age and was born at Yelvertoft. My maiden name was Cave. I was married in the parish Church of Yelvertoft to my present husband about 10 years ago1, by whom I have 2 children born in wedlock, Job aged 9 and William aged 42,3. We have not lived in Towcester 5 years (not quite 4). I have heard my husband say he was born at and belonged Long Buckby, that his parents belonged there, that he never gained a settlement in his own right. My husband is abt 37 yrs old. He never was apprenticed. He learned his trade of Wheelwright at Moreton Pinckney, his brother taught him. My husband is now under sentence of Transportation for 7 years4. I am destitute. I received relief from Towcester Parish on Saturday last and again on Wednesday last. 4s in kind. I have an Order for the Workhouse. 4 yrs ago this Christmas my husband was ill, we were then living in Yelvertoft and my husbands mother Mary Johnstone of Long Buckby widow applied to Mr Judkin relieving officer for Buckby, Daventry Union, for the gift money and I heard her say he gave her 1s 6d. She forwarded it to me. Yelvertoft is in the Rugby Union.
