No baptism record for John can be found, which suggests he was illegitimate, with the most likely father being Richard 1765.

Around1810 at least two schools were built in the parish of Broadclyst by Sir T.D.Acland, the owner of the Killerton estate. It is likely John attended one of the schools before continuing on to become a teacher, and the patronage of the Acland family.

It appears that after the birth of his daughter Elizabeth in 1836 he was offered the position of school master at Allerford school, located on the Holnicote estate outside Minehead, also owned by the Acland family.

Both John`s sons went on to become teachers, Henry moving to Broadclyst as a school attendance officer before his death. His daughter Emma managed the Piles Mill farm on the Holnicote estate until her death, whilst Mary returned to Broadclyst where her husband worked on the Killerton estate.
Devon unless otherwise stated.
