VEAL OF ST. GILES ON THE HEATH

 

The 1851 census returns for “Veals Shop” in St. Giles on the Heath show John Veal, aged fifty-two, born at St. Giles on the Heath, with (among others) his nephew Henery Pearse, eighteen, born at Northcott Hamlet. Also enumerated in that year at “Veals Shop” was Elizabeth Veal, aged eighty-two, born at Lifton.[1]

 

The certificate for the death of Elizabeth Veale in 1853 records her as the widow of John Veale, an agricultural labourer.

 

These records confirm that Mary Veal who married Henry Pearce in 1817 was the Mary, daughter of John and Elizabeth Veal, who was baptised at St. Giles on the Heath on 3 July 1791.
