Albert died in 1864.
Yes, Fanny is in service in Fowey in 1871.

I wondered about the workhouse.
John Jago was an ag. lab. so perhaps he was working on a farm somewhere.

In 1851, the household has three boys old enough to earn a living:Richard Curtis, 19, Joseph Blake 16 and Isaac Jago 13. Do we know where they were? Or their brother Edwin Jago aged 8 in 1851.

Also, do we know where John was living in 1862? I wouldn't mind betting that it was still Lostwithiel Street and for some reason they simply weren't counted.

Richard Curtis Blake is the man I'm investigating. He was Jane's son. He was married and at Passage Street, Fowey. This family emigrated to Australia later on.

1861 Census
Richard Blake Head Married Male 26 Farm Labourer Fowey
Charlotte Blake Wife Married Female 25 Fowey
M Margaret Blake Daughter Female 4 Fowey,
John Blake Son - Male 2 Fowey
Richard Blake Son Male 0 Fowey
Henry Hunter Lodger Unmarried Male 40 Ropemaker Scotland
Angelina Blake Visitor Female 13 Fowey
James Bollard Lodger Married Male 40 Farm Labourer Duloe

I'd love to know who Angelina Blake was! I couldn't find her yesterday.

Joseph Kendall Blake, another of Jane's sons, has eluded me.

Edwin has also proved to be elusive.

I thought Angelina was Fanny. Off to find out why!

Someone on Ancestry appears to think that a John Mitchell in Cardiff, born Fowey, is one and the same as Joseph Kendall Blake.

So far as I can see, this individual first married as John Murton Mitchell to Jane Howard in 1863. But he's a mariner, rather than an ag lab, so I think it must be pin sticking, without proof.

Phoenix, I've now sent off a GEDCOM file to the researcher and asked him to come back if he requires further information. I'm going to leave it for now.
Thanks for your help - another pair of eyes is invaluable.
