It appears that she died soon after. He later married Jemima King, daughter of a shoe maker from Newnham, Glos. They first lived in Newnham where George worked as a painter & glazier & they had three children, Mary Jane, Charles & Annie from 1861. William lived with them in 1861. By 1871, the family (without William) had moved to 20, Carnarvon Tce, Newbury, where both Jemima, then George, died. George worked as a house painter until his death. In his final years, Jemima's sister, Belinda Hitchcock was his housekeeper. Their eldest daughter, Mary Jane, married Frederick Wilkins of Ardington, Berkshire in 1891 in Cuyhoga, Ohio, USA. She is buried in Riverdale Cemetery, Wellsvillle, Ohio and memorialised on her parents' grave. Charles became a pupil teacher in Newbury by the 1891 census and later became a Congregational Minister. He married Caroline Pullen of Newbury and they moved to Camborne, Cornwall where Charles continued as a schoolmaster. He retired with his wife to Bournemouth where he died. His parents-in-law, the Pullens, are buried in P(C)2. See NWN Obit on the Sources: NRC Bur Recds; Ancestry records.

Many Associations with Newbury

The Rev. Charles Davis, whose death took place at Southbourne on November 28th, aged 78, though not born in Newbury, had many associations with the town, where he spent all his early years.  Mr Davis began life as a teacher in the Wesleyan Schools, in which he had been a pupil under Mr William Dalby and Mr G H Bates.  His teaching life was mainly served under Mr W W Bowring.

After training at Westminster College, Mr Davis returned to his old school as second maser.  Later he took a school in Cornwall, where he served with great success fo 33 years, and was, too, for 25 years on the staff of the evening school at the Camborne School of Mines.  He was connected intimately with the Wesleyan Church, and his services were greatly sought throughout the district.  Yet later, at a time when he might well have retired, he took the pastorate of the Cngregational Church in Salisbury.  This he held for ten years, during which the membership of the church greatly increased.

Mr Davis married Miss Caroline Pullen, of Newbury, who, with their daughter, survives him.  He is to be buried in the Old Cemetery today (Thursday), after a service at the Methodist Church, Northbrook street.
