Sarah Harris was born in 1799 to Richard and Elizabeth Harris. The maiden name of Sarah's mother is not yet known. She was christened in the parish of Crowan on 26th October 1799.

Little is known of Sarah's life other than the dates provided by church records and a census record.


Sarah married Isaac Jewell at the parish church in Crowan on 1st June 1819. He too had been born and raised in Crowan.

The couple would have 9 known children together, but it is possible that only 7 made it into adulthood. All were christened in Crowan.

Death of husbandEdit

Isaac died at a young age, only 39. His youngest child was barely 6 months old at the time. Without a grave inscription or death certificate for that early period of time, it is difficult to determine what he died of at this stage. If he was a miner, mining accidents for the year 1835 near Crowan should be investigated.

1841 censusEdit

Srah is located in the 1841 census for Crowan at Poldrouse Moor. She is recorded as age 40. Housekeeper was originally recorded as her occupation, but this was crossed out and replaced with miner. Children William (age 20 - a copper miner), Isaac (age 15 - a tin miner), Salome (age 15 - misspelt as Salomy - a miner. Stamp girl had been crossed out) and Jonn (age 13 - a miner. Stamp boy had been crossed out) were all living with her at the time.

Later LifeEdit

Sarah is yet to be located in later census records and a matching death record for her is yet to be found. This page will need to be updated when more information becomes available.
