The Tawstock Shaddocks are a branch of the Yarnscombe Shattockes, whose founder, Richard Shattocke, was born c. 1640 and died in Yarnscombe in 1706. This tree shows how Tawstock Shaddocks are related to other branches of the Yarnscombe Shattockes.
Our family has been lucky that there have been some very fine family historians. One of the best was Clifford Ramiro Shaddick (1887-1956). He was born in 1887 in Wales. He was in the navy during the first world war as a merchant seaman. As you will see, he was following the footsteps of his immediate ancestors. He lived in London for awhile, met Mary Spence and married her in 1917. He was a civil engineer. He died in 1956 at Swanage, Dorset.
What makes him particularly valuable to the family is that he did primary research, examining the parish registers and other archival sources first hand. There are many documents and references that he references that are not found elsewhere. I became aware of his research when Peter Shaddick sent me a copy of a typewritten history of the family. It was dated October, 1950, Swanage, Dorset. I don't think this is the final copy, or the final draft never got written, because I was able to obtain letters Cliff wrote to a research centre, the North Devon Athenaeum in Barnstaple, a town once inhabited by his ancestors. The earliest one was written in 1941. The last one is written in February 1955, 14 months before he died. That was six years after his family history. So his letters contain information not in the paper.
If it had not been for the letters, I might never have discovered a whole branch of the Tawstock family that he explored. But I am ahead of myself. I need to take you back to the beginning, where Cliff starts in his family history. And I need to set the scene.
The story of the Tawstock Shaddocks is woven into the tapestry of great social and economic changes in the 18th and 19th century in England. It tells of the devastation of a way of life by the British Agricultural Revolution, a family ruined; then through strength of character and ambition forging news lives in a new world, both at home and abroad. It is a most remarkable story.
I have created a Tawstock Family Tree, featuring the major familes that descend from James and Mary Lee Shaddock. It is a good idea to keep this tree at hand when reading through this page because the tradition of naming first born sons after fathers and grandfathers is strong in this family. You can easily lose your way without a family tree to help you keep track of so many Johns, Williams, Georges, and James. Click to enlarge it.
James Shaddock and Mary Lee, Founders of the Family
The story begins with the family patriarch James Shaddock (1722-1792), who married Mary Lee (b. 1725) of Barnstaple. The marriage took place in Tawstock. But there is no record of James Shaddock's birth in the Tawstock registry. There is a James "Shadock" born 6 miles away from Tawstock, in the village of Instow. He is the most likely candidate for the James Shaddock who married Mary Lee.
Was James Shaddock related to the Shaddicks of Instow? ( You can read about the Instow Shaddicks here.) He probably is, but it remains to be proven with DNA testing. What I am fairly certain about is his membership in the Yarnscombe Shattocke lineage. I'll tell you why.
James Shadock was born to Thomas and "Joane." This is Thomas Shattocke and Joan Stabledon who are the most prolific parents discovered so far in the Yarnscombe Shattocke family tree. All the main branches in the Yarnscombe Shattocke tree descend from this couple. Here is a link to the tree: Yarnscombe Family Tree. Read about the Yarnscombe Shattockes here.
As you can see from the tree, James Shaddock of Tawstock is the patriarch of the middle branch descending from Thomas Shattocke. He is the younger brother of George Shaddick (1715-1810), who moved to Bideford. He is the older brother of Philip Shaddick (b. 1724), who moved to Fremington. These are locations James sons will be found living in.
James Shaddock's father Thomas was an itinerant farm labourer who moved his family frequently to find work. He had a big family: 10 children.
Thomas' first four children were born in the village where he was married, Alverdiscott. His next two children were born four miles away in Yarnscombe, where he was born. Then he had James and William in Instow, seven miles from Yarnscombe. His last child was born four miles away in Horwood. He died in Fremington, yet another four miles away. The farthest point between these towns is 7 miles. The picture that emerges is that of an itinerant farm labourer, with a large family to feed, who did not have a lifetime job. He moved frequently in a time when travel time was measured in walking time, since there was no public transportation, no good roads, no public stage coaches and no horses available to families struggling just to feed themselves.
One of the indications that James Shaddock of Tawstock is a Yarnscombe Shaddock is the names he gives his children, and the names of his grandchildren: William, James, Thomas, John, Philip and George. By far the most common names in Yarnscombe descendants are William, James and Thomas.
There is something else shared among Yarnscombe Shattockes at this point in history: poverty. I know that James Shaddock's brother George was impoverished because he was forcibly removed from Paignton on the east coast to Bideford on the west coast of Devon. Bideford was his home parish. The parish in Paignton wanted him off the "dole" in their village.
My ancestor William Shaddock, born in 1766, seemed to be well off in his youth because his parents could afford to send him to school. But he died a pauper. The descendants of the other brother, Philip Shaddick (b. 1724) probably joined the army and fought in the Napoleonic War because of lack of employment in the farm fields and the need to support their families.

The agricultural industry has always been subject to a variety of adverse conditions, beginning with bad weather. In the 18th century, wars also had adverse effects, particularly in the early years when the war between the English and French colonies in the last decade of the 17th century, and the Spanish Succession War in the first decade and a half of the 18th century virtually killed the export market for North Devon farmers, leading them to lay off farm workers or forcing them to abandon their farm leases. See the section of the Instow Shaddicks page that describes the effect of the first decades of the 18th century on Shattocke employment and migration.
A number of factors had a devastating effect on farm labourers after 1750. What is called the British Agricultural Revolution increased the productivity of farms while displacing thousands of farm labourers. It also contributed to a vast expansion of the population at a time where fewer hands were needed on the farm. For example, the threshing machine reduced the need for threshing by hand, employment farm labourers depended on for winter income. The Dutch improved the Chinese plough, requiring fewer oxen or horses to pull it and less labour. Less hands in the fields meant the demand for clothes like gloves fell, robbing farm workers of an additional source of income in such cottage industries as glove making. Selective breeding increased the productivity of domestic farm animals while reducing the number of labourers hired to look after flocks and barnyard animals. Improved infrastructure in terms of better roads canals and later railways moved farm produce quicker to markets, both domestic and international, forcing farmers to become more efficient in a competitive market. Lower tariffs, tolls and custom barriers, combined with better transportation infrastructure increased competition from international farmers, such as more efficient farmers in the Americas. It was a perfect storm striking farm labourers at a time when they were having big families.
The Family Almost Wiped Out
The effect of these changes to a way of life that had lasted for thousands of years was devastating on Shattockes, especially for those who would not or could not emigrate to English colonies. There is evidence that James and Mary Shaddock of Tawstock were caught up in this economic turbulence. I have written about the so-called "apprenticeship" system in Devon during this period of time in the Diaspora page of this site. Essentially it employed children under contract to a farmer for work in the fields or servants in the household. In effect it took children out of the home of their parents and provided cheap labour to local farmers or artisans. A search of the "The National Archives" in the U.K. produces a number of apprenticeship contracts for Shaddocks in Tawstock. Here is a sample of Tawstock Shaddocks who are in the apprenticeship records:
Title: North Devon Record Office; Reference: 2288A/PO 22/13; Description: Ann Shaddock, age 7, apprenticed to George Slowman for late Nagles Burbrooke; Date: 1792; Held by: North Devon Record Office (South West Heritage Trust),
Title: North Devon Record Office; Reference: 2288A/PO 22/28; Description: John Shaddock, age 9, apprenticed to John Somerwill for Saint Hills Tenement; Date: 1795; Held by: North Devon Record Office (South West Heritage Trust)
Title: North Devon Record Office; Reference: 2288A/PO 22/32; Description: James Shaddock, age 7, apprenticed to John Millward for Higher Pill; Date: 1795; Held by: North Devon Record Office (South West Heritage Trust)
Title: North Devon Record Office; Reference: 2288A/PO 22/33; Description: Richard Shaddock, age 12, apprenticed to John Moore for Comers Week Tenement; Date: 1795; Held by: North Devon Record Office (South West Heritage Trust)
Look at the ages of the children who were apprenticed off to the farmers. The youngest two are seven years old. Imagine being packed up with a bundle of clothes, and sent off to live with a farmer or shoemaker under a binding legal contract that would not give you freedom until the age of eighteen or older. There would be no school, just a life of work according to the schedule of the farmer, sometimes from the morning light to the darkness of night. And he and the family could treat you as they saw fit. Such children are easy to spot in the church registers, because when they do eventually leave the farmer and get married, they sign the parish marriage register with a mark not a written signature. No formal education. However, they do have a vocation and a small amount of money to start a new life. But employment in the fields was disappearing fast.
Some of the records at the North Devon Record Office tell the story of the James and Mary family's slide into poverty. James and Mary Shaddock's son Thomas was apprenticed off at age 7. Their son John was apprenticed off at age 7. Their daughter Susannah was apprenticed off at age 7.
Their daughter Mary Shaddock (b. 1751) has a child out of wedlock, John Chapple Shaddock, born 1781. The likely name of the father is John Chapple as it was common to name the child after the putative father. A pregnant unwed woman's child would become chargeable to the parish. She would face a formal "Examination" intended to reveal the name of the father. After the Examination determined the father's name, if he failed to own up to his part, and refused to marry the woman, a Bastardy Order would be issued requiring the him to maintain the child until it was apprenticed or face a prison term. The child belonged to the parish in which it was born. So in the case where a pregnant woman was away from her home parish, she would be forcefully removed there. In the same year Mary Shaddock is named in the Bastardy Order, she is forced to return to Tawstock from where she was living, Horwood, three and a half miles west. It's possible that Mary Shaddock and John Chapple were too poor to get married. The story of Mary Shaddock apparently had a good ending as we will see shortly.
Yet another James and Mary Shaddock child was subject to a Bastardy Order. Joanna Shaddock (1764-1817) gave birth to a child in 1802 when she was 38. The putative father was James Griffith. Her child was Emma Shaddock. Emma was apprenticed at age 10 in 1812 to William Brown. On her baptism certificate she is described as "base born." She would enjoy a better fate than her mother when she married Thomas Harris in Ifracombe, Devon.
Two Main Tawstock Branches
While conditions were rough for James and Mary's children, they remained in North Molton. But as the 18th century drew to a close, the upgraded transportation systems and cheap and assisted passage to the Americas and Austrailia made the next generation more mobile. The industrial revolution was gathering steam. Britain began exporting its surplus labour, offering assistance to those who wanted to emigrate. The life stories of James and Mary's grandchildren followed this exodus from farm fields of Devon to English cities and across the oceans to new lands. Many of the Tawstock Shaddocks would move to cities, from Barnstaple to Christchurch in New Zealand and Chicago, Michigan. Urbanization occurred as work vanished from the fields. According to Cliff Shaddick, in his study of his ancestry in the early 1950s, there were 500 homes in Barnstaple in 1750. By 1830 the number of homes had double to 1000.
If you look at the genealogy of the family I have laid out at the end of this page, you will see there are many, many family lines that are unaccounted for. This reflects the poor state of the records in part, but it also is evidence of the devastation the Agricultural Revolution wrought on the family as many must have died of hunger and disease. Only two of James and Mary's ten children became founders of very large family lineages, the brothers Thomas and William. Thomas Shaddock (1759-1830) and Susanna Hill (1760- ) produced one branch of the family. William Shaddick (1757- ) and Elizabeth Norman founded a second very extensive branch. See the Tawstock Family Tree to see how these two lineages fan out.
The major portion of the next generation of Shattockes in all the lineages would leave North Devon and farm in the English colonies or find work in booming industries like ship building in Wales or in the service industries of the burgeoning towns that were absorbing the excessive farm labour. It is a marvellous story of a family, born into a class conscious society, some of who eventually rise to the highest rungs of society.
The William and Elizabeth Shaddick Branch
James and Mary Shaddock's fourth child was William Shaddick, born in 1757, presumably in Tawstock. There is no record of his apprenticeship, but I think he was apprenticed to a carpenter. His father was a field worker so he did not inherit his trade. But carpentry would be a trade that William's descendants would embrance and it would influence where they lived and what descendants would eventually do.
The first record we find for William is his marriage to Elizabeth Norman in Northam & Appledore, Devon. He is age 22 and is already described as a carpenter and is able to afford to marry. Northam & Appledore is about 8 miles due west of Tawstock, crossing the river Torridge. About two miles due south of Northam & Appledore is Bideford, a major port on the Torridge river. Appledore is also a seaport. (Northam and Appledore became separate parishs in 1844.) This maritime connection would have a big influence on the fate of William's descendants.
William and Elizabeth had two daughters, Elizabeth Shaddock born 1784 and Mary Shaddick born 1786. He had two sons, William Shaddick (1788-) and George Shaddick (1791). There is an amazing consistency in the naming of sons in Tawstock descendants, paralleling closely the naming of other Yarnscombe Shaddock descendants.
His first born child Elizabeth has Shaddock as the spelling of her surname, while the next three have Shaddick. The descendants would also spell their surname "Shaddick."
Now let's look at the two lines of descent from William's two sons.
William Shaddick (1788-) and Emlyn Turner (1788)
The older son William married at age 22 in 1811. He had been living in Northam, she was from Bideford, the sea port. His wife's name was Emlyn Turner (1788-). I would not have found this line of Tawstock Shaddocks if it were not for a letter written by Clifford Shaddick on the 9th of April in 1941 to the North Devon Athenaemum. Attached to the letter is a diagram of his ancestors William Shaddick and Emlyn Turner, showing how they were related. They were first cousins. Emlyn Turner was the daughter of Mary Shaddock (1751-), and granddaughter of James Shaddock and Mary Lee. William Shaddick was the son of Mary Shaddock's brother William (1757--) and also grandson of James Shaddock and Mary Lee. Clifford Shaddick was the great grandson of William Shaddick and Emlyn Turner.
William and Evelyn's first child, John Turner Shaddick, was baptized in 1812. He was born in Appleton. The place of baptism of his second son is significant. William James Shaddick (1813-1861) was baptized in Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, Wales. Pembroke Dock was a port just across the waters from Northam & Appledore. There had been shipbuilding near Pembroke prior to 1814, but it was the building of a Royal Navy Dockyard near the town of Pembroke that sprung the village of Pembroke Dock into existence. Naval historians suggest that the inferior manoeuvrability of British ships versus the Franco-Spanish ships in the Napoleonic Wars might have influenced the choice of this remote location for a naval dockyard. It helped that labour and supplies were cheap in this part of South Wales, but the choice of Frenchman Barallier to head up construction of ships in the yard was telling.
I think it was William Shaddick's carpentry skills that accounts for his sudden appearance in Pembroke Dock just as the Royal Navy Dockyard was constructed. The area would provide work for his descendants for generations to come. The first ships were launched in 1816. For the next 112 years five royal yachts were built there, testimony to the skills of its craftsmen. The last ship built there was launched in 1922. William worked for the rest of his life at the dockyards as a shipwright. He died at age 52 in 1841.
His son John Turner Shaddick (1812-1887) followed in his father's footsteps, working as a shipwright. In 1833 he married Mary Griffiths (1810-1882). They had five children, three boys and a two girls. His children would find work in the Naval Dockyards.
William Shaddick's son William James Shaddick (1813-1861) married Jane Moor (1817-). He was the first seafaring Tawstock Shaddock. He was a merchant marine, awarded his master mariner certificate at age 40 in London. There is an amazing story told of his prowess as a seaman in the famous London newspaper, The Examiner, in its Jan. 1, 1842 edition. Read about his heroic journey across the Atlantic, from the Caribbean to England in August 1841.
His namesake William James Shaddick (1842-1889) followed in his footsteps, awarded master mariner status in 1864. He married Frances Ellen Tatem (1849-1935) in 1867 in Barnstaple. His wife was from Appledore. This suggests that the Shaddicks of Pembroke Docks, Wales retained contact with their relatives across the Bristol Channel.
It also explains why Clifford Shaddick thought his ancestry traced back to Barnstaple and Tawstock, because William James Jr. was his uncle. He had eight children. He would die in a far off land, in Constantinople, Turkey. There must have been a colorful and enchanting lore of distant lands among the seafaring Shaddicks. Cliff Shaddick would follow his ancestors into the merchant marine, serving on a ship during the first world war.
Cliff's father George Shaddick (1843-1906) was William James Shaddick and Jane Moor's second son. He was born in Swansea, Wales, evidence of how much the family moved around. He married Anne Burgess (1848-1921) from Swansea in 1846. He was a shipbroker. Shipbroking is a financial service forming part of the global shipping industry. Shipbrokers can act as intermediaries between ship owners and charterers using ships to move goods. Or a shipbroker can act as an intermediary between buyers and sellers of ships. I think you get an idea of how well this branch of the Tawstock family was doing by examining the census form for George Shaddick in 1871 in Swansea. His neighbours include William William, a civil engineer; Jules Allard, a professor of music; and his next door neighbour, Gilbert Sullock, was a dealer in supplies and equipment for boats and ships. Many of these houses have servants and his neighbour has a midwife. George Shaddick was well off. Cliff Shaddock would become a civil engineer, an engineer who designs and maintains roads, bridges, dams, and similar structures. His family has come a long way from the status of labourers in the fields of Devon.
A descendant of George Shaddick, Ian Stewart brought to light the amazing ascent of this branch of the Tawstock family. Apparently the Shaddicks of Swansea were connected in business and family with the famous Burgess & Co. shipping company. A researcher (Dr David Jenkins, National Waterfront Museum, Swansea) has written a history of the company (http://burgess-swansea.co.uk/ ), which became "Burgess and Shaddick" under a new partnership. Here is short quote from the article.
"The connection with the Shaddick family became significant in the later 1860s when William Shaddick’s grandson George, born in 1841, came to James Burgess’s attention. The family had moved to Swansea and George Shaddick was a coal merchant’s clerk in the town, but he was also a talented self-taught linguist, fluent in French and Spanish; these were talents which would be most useful in an expanding shipping company. He was invited to join the company and in March 1867, looking to the future, Burgess created a new partnership comprising himself, his son James Henry and George Shaddick, under the title of Burgess & Shaddick, shipowners, shipbrokers and agents. And to add a romantic overlay to a commercial association, George Shaddick successfully wooed James Burgess’s daughter Anne, eventually marrying her in 1869!"
The partnership was to lead to great wealth and social position. Dr. Jenkins comments:
"From very ordinary origins in late eighteenth century north Devon, the Burgess and Shaddick families rose to prominence as shipowners in Swansea’s copper ore trade in the nineteenth century."
Ian Stewart is the grandson of Elsie Jane Shaddick (1884-1947). He is the great grandson of George Shaddick (1844-1906). He has written a very good history of his Shaddick and Stewart family and included family photos: here.
Wealth and position allowed his daughter Gwendoline to enter the social circles in London.
St. Martin in London, England. I attended a Bach concert in this church in 2011. I wish I had known my distant cousin Gwendoline had been married there. It might have helped personalize the wonderful and intimate setting.
I know it is the fond wish of many a person scanning ancient documents to find familial connections to royalty. The DNA of Shattockes suggests our ancestors were peasants and merchants, either wielding a hoe or a sword in the service of a master, or a pen on a bill of lading, but never connected to royalty. There is good evidence they were members of the "gentry" from late in the 15th century until late in the 18th century, and the Southwark, London Shattocks rose to the heights of English society in the 19th century. But no royal blood. So it came as a surprise when I discovered that Cliff Shaddick's sister, Gwendoline Isa Shaddick (1888-1956) married a hereditary Irish peer with the illustrious name Cecil Vivian Moore Etienne Le Fanu (1877–1936). Here is what I found on the website "The Peerage: a genealogical survey of the peerage of Britain."
"Cecil Vivian Moore Le Fanu was born on 5 April 1877. He was the son of William Joseph Henry Le Fanu and Katharine Mary Moore. He married Gwendoline Isa Shaddick, daughter of George Shaddick, on 22 March 1917. He died on 31 December 1936 at age 59.
He was educated at Germany. He graduated from Aberdeen University, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, with a Bachelor of Medicine (M.B.). He graduated from Aberdeen University, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in 1898 with a Bachelor of Surgery (Ch.B.). He was with the West African Medical Service between 1905 and 1926. He was Director and Consultant Physician to the Colonial Office between 1926 and 1928 at Liverpool, Lancashire, England."
Gwendoline might have met her future husband in Africa where he was working with the West African Medical Service. Gwendoline and Cliff had a brother George Henry Burgess Shaddick (1870–1928) who had moved to Durban, South Africa. But it is perhaps more likely that she met her future husband in London, the daughter of a gentleman from Gatwick, Kent, just outside of London. However they met, they were married at St. Martin in London. The descent from poor farm labourers in the fields of Devon in the mid-18th century had turned into a social ascent just over a century later. Gwendoline Isa Shaddick had met her Darcy. What story of Pride and Prejudice is there hidden here?
Ian Stewart tells me that Gwendoline's grandson is a well-known doctor, James Le Fanu. A bio of him can be found at http://www.jameslefanu.com/ A genealogy of the family can be found here: http://www.lefanus-online.org/ .
The Thomas and Susanna Shaddock Branch
Now let's drop back to the top of the tree again and explore the second branch of the family.
James and Mary's sixth child was Thomas Shaddock (1759-1830), who married Susannah Hill (1760-) in Tawstock in March of 1779. Thomas would produce ten children he could not afford to raise. It was a rough beginning to his legacy. His branch actually divides into three, Shaddicks who were transported to Australia, the Shaddocks who moved to Barnstaple and branched off to New Zealand and North America and a branch that moved initially to the Devon coast and then branched off to London. See the Tawstock Family Tree. The legacy of poverty in northern Devon cast this family far and wide.
The Mourambine, Australia Branch
This branch of the family begins with the movement of William Shaddick (1781-1854) south to Buckland Brewer, no doubt because William was an agricultural laborer, seeking work. Agricultural laborers had a rough time of it, working for daily wages at a time when the agricultural industry was mechanizing, putting workers out of work and reducing the wages of those that were left. William died in Torrington. His son William (1825-1902) was born in the tiny village of Frithelstock, just west of Torrington. He was born into poverty. When he was just five years old the "Swing Riots" occurred. It was an uprising primarily of agricultural workers against the conditions and wages they had endured. These troubled times may explain the subsequent history of William and his family. The story of his conviction of theft for stealing food and transportation to Australia is a classic tale of this time. To give it justice, I have given him and his family their own page. Click here to read it.
Ann Shaddock (b. 1785)
Ann Shaddock, born 1785
The case of Ann Shaddock, Thomas and Susannah's fourth child, is illustrative. At the age of 7 she is apprenticed to George Slooman. Most likely she was a servant in his house. There is no evidence that George Slooman was an aristocrat so his house was probably not particularly big. There might not have been an "upstairs and downstairs." This was not Downton Abbey.
At the age of 18 she gave birth to a son out of wedlock. The "putative" father is George Slooman. A woman with a "bastardy" child was cast to the fringes, her marital prospects ruined. I think it is clear that Slooman was the father because the son born 1803 in Tawstock was named "William S. Shaddick." There is no record of it, but "S" is probably "Slooman." What makes this certain is that William S. Shaddock would later have a son baptised as "William Henry Slooman Shaddock." The fact that he carried the Slooman name into the next generation is a mystery. Was he proud to be the son of Slooman? There is a lost story here.
What are we to make of the fact that Ann would have three more children out of wedlock? Her son Thomas was born six years later in 1809, her son John nine years later in 1812, and her daughter Elizabeth ten years after that, in 1822. Elizabeth's putative father was William Cann.
Ann Shaddock was not totally alienated from her family. She was a witness signing her younger sister Mary 's wedding register in 1811. At the age of 56 she is found in the 1851 census living with the same sister and her husband John Bramble. The portrait of her that has come down to us (shown above) portrays a woman who still has her dignity intact. At least she was well enough loved to have a portrait of her passed down through time.
Perhaps it could be said that the Tawstock Shaddocks were the first modern family among descendants of the Yarnscombe Shattockes.
Her son William S. Shaddick at some point moved to the regional centre of Barnstaple, five miles due north of Tawstock. In the 1851 census we find him working as a journeyman miller. He might have found employment at a new steam-powered flour mills built at this time in Barnstaple, close to the expanding transportation infrastructure. And the flour mill would have been more efficient and less labour intensive then the water-driven mills in rural Devon because of the power of the steam engine.
William S. Shaddick and his wife had two boys at home, Edwin age 16 and Frederick age 14. Edwin was working as an apprentice "hair dresser," which was a new type of occupation largely practised by men who tended to the needs of an emerging middle class with a little cash to spare. He eventually left that trade and retired working for the railroad. Frederick worked as a printer's apprentice, another expanding occupation for an urbanized population that was able to read because of laws passed forcing parents to send their children to school. A puzzling fact is that they are both described as "step-sons." And they both had the surname of "Shaddock." Did William's wife Elizabeth bring them into the marriage? Was Elizabeth Shaddick the widow of William's brother or cousin? Or were they born out of wedlock and given the Shaddock name? A DNA test of their descendants, if a direct male descendant can be found, would clear up this mystery.
A third son, William Henry Slooman Shaddick is born in 1852. He carries forward his biological grandfather's name. He is described simply as a "son" in the 1861 census and he is going to school. He dies at the age of 15.
The census shows William S. has upgraded his trade credentials to "miller." The family was prospering.
Elizabeth Shaddick (1822-1903)
So what become of Ann's other children?
Elizabeth Shaddick (1822-1903)
Ann's daughter Elizabeth was born in 1822 in Tawstock. There is a Bastardy Order that identifies the putative father as William Cann (North Devon Record Office; Reference: 2288A/PO 23/45). Cliff Shaddick quotes a grandson as saying Elizabeth's father was John Shaddick, but that appears to be either a family myth or a deliberate canard from a respectable descendant. She may be the Elizabeth Shaddock who shows up in the 1841 census living with another single woman as a farm labourer in Bishops Tawton, just three miles from Tawstock. She must have met somebody locally, because eight years later, in 1849, she married Henry Thomas Haddrell (1826-1898). It is at St. Paul's Church in Hanover Square, London. They emigrated to New Zealand where they had five children. She died 1903 in New Zealand.
Thomas Shaddock (1809-1890)
Ann had a son named after her father, Thomas Shaddock (1809-1890). On the baptism record it is recorded that he is the "base" son of Ann and there is no father's name given. In 1836, at the age of 27, Thomas marries Mary Jones (1807-1883) in Barnstable. She was born in Tawstock. Fifteen years later he is working as a farm labourer in Tawstock. He is doing well enough to have his daughter Mary Shaddock (1842-1882) in school at the age of 9. However, his son John Jones Shaddock (1838-1912) is not at home, presumably apprenticed.
Mary Shaddock (1842-1882)
It is on the wedding day of Thomas' daughter Mary Shaddick on Aug 25, 1864 that we get a glimpse of the better fortune of this family. On the marriage certificate Thomas's job is entered as "farm bailiff." Although a farm bailiff on a small farm would simply be a kind of foreman of other workers, on a large farm he could have a number of other responsibilities. He could act as an agent of the farm. Beyond enforcing evictions, he would be responsible to for the security of the farm, defending against poachers or rustlers. He collected rents. He would also acted as a manager of other farm workers, hiring and firing them. Thomas died in 1890 in Bishops Tawton. His son John Jones Shaddick probated the estate that was worth £50. That is £4500 in today's pounds, or about $6500 US dollars. Not a large estate but he did have money in the bank.

Back row left to right: Francis Hannaford Shaddick, Gertrude Elizabeth Bennett Shaddick Gammon, Charles Jones Shaddick, Mary Augusta Shaddick Vickery (Polly), Henry George Hastings Shaddick. Front row: Anna Beatrice Shaddick, John Jones Shaddick, Elizabeth Ellen Bennett Shaddick, Harriett Ellen Bennett Shaddick Jewell (Hettie).
Mary Shaddick's new husband, Henry Symons, born in Tawstock in 1842, is described as a "miller." The marriage took place in Barnstaple, so it is possible he was working at one of the new steam-powered flour mills in Barnstaple. Perhaps Mary's husband knew her brother William S. Shaddock. Mary and Henry had a boy and a girl. He died tragically at age 28 in 1870 in Barnstaple. Was it an industrial accident? Mary would never remarry. At age 39, in 1991, the census shows she was working as a ladies maid in Bishop's Tawton, three miles south of Barnstaple. She was working for Robert Chichester of Hall. He was a Gentleman, described as an "Esquire", or a "Landed Proprietor". He received a Master of Arts at Oxford University. He was a Justice of the Peace. Mary was obviously respectable enough and educated enough to be a domestic ladies maid. By the way, some people confuse Mary Shaddock with Mary Ann Shaddick who was baptized in 1842 in Barnstaple. Her father was John Shaddick. I have not been able to find a link between the Shaddicks of Barnstaple and the Shaddicks of Tawstock. There are generations of John Shaddicks born in Barnstaple who appear to be fishermen. They go back to John Shaddick, born in 1750 in Barnstaple, but the paper trail ends there.
John Jones Shaddock (1838-1912)
In the portrait at left you see John Jones Shaddock, seated, with his wife Elizabeth on his left, surrounded by their children, everybody dressed up in their Sunday best. It is interesting that the spouses of his children are not included in the picture. As we will see, they were a close knit and a very successful family.
John Jones Shaddock was born in Tawstock, and received his mother's last name as his middle name. This was common at the time. At age 22, in 1861, he married Elizabeth Ellen Bennett, also age 22. Her father Henry Bennett was a "chief boatman," probably working one of the barges that transported heavy goods in Devon. The marriage took place in Amberley, Gloucestershire, north of Bristol and 125 miles away from Barnstaple.
Both John and his wife Elizabeth signed the wedding document in clear, legible script. They have received schooling.
Elizabeth Bennett (I keep thinking of the Austen novel when I write her name) was born and raised in Totnes, Devon in the south of Devon. That is a long way from both Barnstable and Amberley, Gloucester. The distances this generation was travelling is an indication of the improvement of the transportation system and the disposable income now available to the grandchildren of James and Mary Shaddock.
In the 1861 census, in the same year that John Jones Shaddock was married, we see that he is working as a carpenter. He had acquired a valuable skill. Ten years later he is described as a master carpenter. His children are in school, and he is living in a large enough house to take on lodgers, a butler and his wife. He was living in Barnstaple. Ten years later he was still working as a carpenter but also had a job as a "sub post master." His son Charles John, age 18, was living at home and working was a railway clerk. His daughter Harriet Ellen was working as a milliner and dressmaker. His other children were in school. Ten years later his occupation was described as "pattern maker." By the 1901 census he was swept up into the industrial revolution, as he was making wooden molds for casting in an iron foundry. His son Henry was single, living at home and working as an assistant librarian. His son Francis was a lands agent clerk. John Jones would continue to work at his job in the factory until his death in 1912 at age 74. This was a hard working man.
The family picture, taken in 1905, shows a family that had achieved middle class respectability. John Jones Shaddock had transformed himself from the "base" child of a poverty stricken mother to respectable member of the middle class.
John Jones and Elizabeth's daughter Gertrude Elizabeth (1877-1945) married William Henry Gammon (born 1873), grocery store manager, and would move to St. Austell, Cornwall where her family would grow to five children.
Canon H.G. Hastings Shaddick (1883-1944)
Canon H.G. Hastings Shaddick (1883-1944)
What could be more respectable than having a son who is a member of clergy? Henry Shaddick was born in 1883 in Barnstaple. He must have been a serious, bookish fellow because in the 1891 at age 18 census he is working as an assistant librarian. In the family portrait above, he is in the back row on the far right, age 22. This picture must have been taken at the time of a family reunion because Henry was living at the time in Stanhope, Durham, the curate in a local Anglican parish. Stanhope is about 375 miles from Barnstaple, more than a day's journey at the time (1905).
His father must have been able to afford to send him to Durham University in the north east of England, or possibly he had a scholarship that allowed him to attend the Department of Theology and Religion. He was ordained in 1910, according to Cliff Shaddick in his family history. The 1911 census, when Henry was 28, shows him twenty miles west of Durham University in Stanhope, Durham. He was a curate in Stanhope for twelve years, from 1910 to 1922. In July of 1913 he married Ellen Lillian Cawsey (1885-1957) in Barnstaple, where his family lived. They had a daughter the next year and another one in 1917.
The photograph at left shows him wearing a military uniform with a clerical collar. He served throughout the 1914-18 war as a forces chaplain. He must have gone over to the trenches because he is mentioned twice in despatches. At the end of the war he was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire), recognizing his service.
From 1922 he was vicar at Shildon in the south of Durham county, then vicar of St. Michael's South Westoe in South Shields until 1937, at which point he moved to Haughton Le Skerne in Darlington, Durham. He mas made rural dean of Jarrow, Tyne and Wear in 1934. He was made a Canon of Durham in 1940. This is an honorary position, awarded for his long service and participation in the wider life of the diocese. He must have experienced the horrors of the wars because he was specially dedicated to serving the needs of his fellow soldiers who had served in the War, acting as Senior Chaplain to the Forces, Territorial Army, Northern Command.
Cliff Shaddick described him as "a man of strong personality, crisp, and fearless in utterance, forthright in manner, he at the same time won esteem by his friendliness and charm. He had a great capacity for organisation and leadership." He was very active in the social and political life of Darlington. This family seems to have men with a high degree of energy and a dedication to hard work.
Canon Hastings Shaddick and his wife Ellen had two daughters. Lillian Jean Shaddick (1914-1997) married Denys Gordon Parfitt (1916-1998) in 1941. Audrey Hastings Shaddick (1917-1996) married Major Percival Roderick Slade (1917-1988) in 1947 in Holborn, Middlesex and moved to Oxford, where her husband had attended Oxford University. Here is the notice appearing in the "old boys" organization "Old Cranleighan Society" publication in December, 1946.
Dorothy Vaughan Shaddick (1886-1964) The picture was taken in 1902 when she was 16.
"Hettie" Shaddick is that young woman on the far right of the front row of the family portrait above with her hands in her lap. She looks intense. Or tense. Cliff Shaddick tells us that she married Frank Ashton Jewell (1867-1921). Frank Jewell was born in Bideford, the port west and south of Barnstaple. His father was a ship's captain. According to Cliff Shaddick, Frank Jewell was mayor of Barnstaple for seven years. This is quite achievement for a family that had arrived in the town a generation earlier as workers at the bottom of the social scale. I think the picture that emerges is of an enormously gifted and determined family patriarch (John Jones Shaddock) who had earned the respect of his fellow citizens. His daughters were beautiful and well-bred.
Charles John Shaddick (1863-1932)
John Jones Shaddock's son Charles John Shaddick (1863-1932) emigrated to the United States, where he married Ellen "Nellie" Beer in 1883 in Chicago. That was the same year he emigrated to America, which makes it likely he knew her and had followed her family to the U.S. He worked as a clerk and had two children, Dorothy Vaughan Shaddick (1886-1964) and Harold Edward Shaddick (1892-1962). Dorothy Shaddick married a lawyer, Edward Nugent Dodds (1887-1959). He was a District Attorney in Tennessee in 1926. His father was a Circuit Judge 21st Circuit, 1894-1917. The Dodds family were known as a premier political dynasty.
John Jones Shaddock's son Harold Edward Shaddick (1892-1962) aspired to be an actor. His high school yearbook jokingly referred to him as a "leader of fashion." It appears that he crossed the river to Canada at the outbreak of the First World War to volunteer for the Canadian army. His father was born in England, so perhaps he volunteered to help save the motherland. After the war he became a broker, and must have been successful at it, because he spent a lifetime doing it. He married and had a daughter.
Harold Shaddick is the handsome guy in the turtle-neck at the centre of the picture. This is from his high school yearbook. He was in the "Boys Glee Club."
In 1911 Charles Shaddick took his wife Ellen and his son Charles back to England for a visit. There is no record of his destination in England, but I am certain he went to Barnstable. Perhaps his father was gravely ill, because John Jones Shaddock died the next year, in 1912. His mother Elizabeth would live another ten years.
Ann Shaddock would have been bursting with pride if she knew how successful her descendants had become, living the American dream in far off Michigan, USA.
Charles Henry Thomas Haddrell and Anna Beatrice Shaddock on their wedding day in 1907.
Anna Beatrice Shaddock (1880-1951)
In the family portrait above you can see Anna Beatrice Shaddock (1880-1951) sitting on her father's right, her elbow on the arm rest and her fist in her cheek. She was born in Bishops Tawton, three miles south of Barnstaple in 1880. At age 21, in the 1901 census, she is found living with her older sister Polly (Mary Augusta), now married to George Vickery in Barnstaple. They had five children. George Vickery was a skilled cabinet maker.
Anna married Charles Henry Thomas Haddrell (1877-1964) in 1907 in Barnstaple. Charles Haddrell had been born in New Zealand, where his father was working as a policeman. How did Anna and Charles connect? It turns out that Charles' father Walter Henry Haddrell (1850-1931) was born in Barnstaple. More than that, Anna and Charles shared a family connection. Ann Shaddock's daughter Elizabeth (1822-1923) was Charles Haddrell's grandmother. She had married Charles' grandfather Henry Thomas Haddrell (1826-1898), moved to New Zealand and had five children. One of the them, Walter Henry Haddrell (1850-1931) was Anna's husband Charles Henry. Anna Beatrice Shaddock's grandfather, Thomas Shaddick (1809-1890) was Elizabeth's brother.
Their first son, Walter Gilbert Haddrell, was born in England in 1910. Sometime in the next year they emigrated to Essex, Massachusetts. It would not have been difficult for Charles to find work, he was a college educated electrical engineer and worked at an electric company according to the U.S. 1910 census. Perhaps he had applied for the job and was hired back in England. On his 1941 draft card, Charles said he was working for the General Electric Co. as a "designing engineer."
Charles and Anna Haddrell had two sons and a daughter.

I have not been able to document all the members and descendants of the Tawstock family. Most of the first generation born to James Shaddock and Mary Lee seem to have vanished from the record books. Perhaps they simply died in this devastated family.
I will end this account of this branch of the family with the family portrait on the left. It parallels the earlier one of the John Jones Shaddock family. It is the modern version of that family that has arrived, after a long journey over oceans, over time, from a peasant life working in the fields to the life of a modern American family, dad working in high tech, children moving in the social circles their ancestors never even dreamed of entering.
John Shaddock 1797-1836
Let's go back up the tree to the root of this branch of the Tawstock Shaddock family (Thomas 1759-1830 and Susanna Hill Shaddock). (See the Tawstock Family Tree.) We now follow the life of Ann Shaddock's brother John (1797-1836). He was born in Tawstock and moved five miles north to the Fremington area. In 1818 he married Susanna Goss in Fremington. Their first child, Mary Shaddock (1821 - 1828), died when she was seven.
Uniforms of The Madras Army of the Honourable East India Company
Their second child, John Shaddick (1824-1854) was working as an agricultural worker at the age of 15 alongside his younger brother William. They may have been indentured servants.
At age 23 John Jr. marries Mary Turner Holman (1816-1910) in Westleigh, Devon. They move to Northam, just north of the sea port of Bideford. An interesting side story is that in the 1851 census in Northam we find John Holman, Mary's brother, living next door, working as a servant in Lonwood House, the home of Major Thomas Wren (1781-1874). He was age 70, retired from the Madras Army of the Honourable East India Company, in effect a private army of the East India Company, formed to protect and extend their commercial interests. They were known for plundering, and as a officer of the Madras army, the Major would have enriched himself while fighting in India. He was a locally social prominent, and married a vice admiral's daughter.
John Jr. and Mary had a son John in 1850 in Northam. Six years later his son William (1856-1929) is born, also in Northam. Then, a year later, John died at age 30. Mary Shaddick worked as a gardener and farm servant until late in life when she is found living with her brother Richard Holman and has saved enough money to live on "her own means." Her son John married Ann Jones (1860-1938) in Lancashire in northern England. They settled in Chesterfield, Derbyshire where John worked his way up from assistant surgeon to dentist. John and Ann had four girls and a boy. John had gone to school as a child, so he could probably read and write, so it is odd, but he began to spell his last name "Shadwick," and baptised all his children with that spelling. His mother Mary's death certificate also shows that spelling, despite the fact she was a "Shaddick" throughout her married life. For some reason John preferred that version of the family name.
Brother William, who we last saw toiling beside John on a farm, apparently opted to join the army. I think he might have heard the stories told by Major Thomas Wren, overheard by Mary's brother John who worked in the Lonwood House as a servant. What makes me suspect that is the case is that we have a record of William, at age 19 in 1846, joining the army in nearby Bideford. He enlists in the North Staffordshire Regiment 64th and 98th foot. And guess where he serves. He serves in India, until he is wounded and becomes an invalid. He is sent back home to the Chelsea hospital in London, where we find him in 1861. He is described as having many "good badges," and his commanding officer speaks highly of him. In 1842 he marries Jane E. Jackson (née Savage) in Hounslow, just on the outskirts of London. He has a son in 1854, William John Shaddick (1864-1942). William gets work as a general labourer to supplement his army pension. His son becomes a carpenter's assistant, working in a factory that manufactures candle making machines. This branch of the Tawstock Shaddocks has become urbanized because of his father's long recuperation at the Chelsea hospital built to rehabilitate wounded soldiers. Despite his war wounds, William lives to age 89, spending the last years of his life living with is son, his daughter-in-law Mary Rebecca Grove (1864-1942) and their four children.
DNA Still Required
Hopefully descendants of the family will contact me in the future and tell me the stories and send me the pictures that thread the family together. We need to find a direct male descendant to provide us with DNA evidence that will confirm this family's attachment to the Yarnscombe Shattocke tree. They may prove to be an older branch. The DNA test would have to be conducted on a descendant of William Shaddick 1788–1841 as the Y-chromosome the DNA tests is passed on only between father and son.
Tawstock Family Genealogy
As I said at the beginning, the Tawstock Shaddocks are probably a major branch of the Yarnscombe Shaddocks. DNA testing remains to test this probability. Here is a link to the tree: Yarnscombe Family Tree. Read about the Yarnscombe Shattockes here.
