That he was born in the parish of Farway in the County of Devon of parents there legally settled as he had heard and believes—That he lived with his parents in Farway until he was nine years of age when about the time he was bound apprentice to Mr John Bishop of Netherton in Farway by the Parish officers of Farway. That he lived with him under this apprenticeship in Farway until he was nineteen years and half old, when he absconded from and left the service of the said John Bishop—He then went to Taunton on Somersetshire and afterwards to Dowlands in Axmouth but he staid at each place not more than six months—He then returned to the parish of Farway and staid there about nine months—He then hired himself to William Ashford of Offwell at 3s/1d a week & to take and give a week's notice—that he lived under this agreement a year and a quarter and then went away & was absent about two months and then returned to Mr Ashford and agreed with him at the same wages and on the same terms and lived with him two years under this agreement. He went into the service at Old Ladyday & left at the new Lady day two years following. Nothing was said about a year—He then married his present wife Mary and has three children by her born in wedlock living with him—that is to say, James aged five years, John aged three years and Elizabeth aged ten months—That he and his family are living in the said parish of Colyton and are now chargeable thereto—that he has done no other act to gain a settlement for himself

son of William and Catherine Pomeroy (pr 1770 – ?); son of William and Christian Pomeroy (pr 1776 – ?)

 

parish register
  I believe the 1770 entry referring to "Catherine" to be an error. Although a Catherine Pomeroy was buried in Farway in 1775, there is no other reference to a Catherine Pomeroy in the Farway registers back to 1709, when a Katherine Pomery had a child baptised—this is more likely to have been the Catherine buried in 1775. There are, however, seven baptismal entries for children of William and Christian Pomeroy from 1754–1767, and Samuel as the eighth (and fourth son), baptised in 1770, fits the pattern perfectly. When asked for an opinion, the archivist at Devon CRO stated simply "Deaf vicar."
