Notes for Walter JENKIN
At the time of their marriage in 1782, Walter and Grace were both noted as from Tresco. Walter probably died before 1841 as he did not appear in the 1841 Census: Grace was living with her son Walter and family.

The 1841 Census recorded:
Block-House, Tresco, Isles of Scilly, Cornwall:
Walter Jenkins, age: 40 years, occupation: mariner, born: Cornwall
Peggy Jenkins, age: 25 years, born: Cornwall
Elizabeth Jenkins, age: 8 years, born: Cornwall
Walter Jenkins, age: 6 years, born: Cornwall
Grace Jenkins, age 80, born: Cornwall

Note: the ‘Block-House” is the local term for the old fortification on Tresco built in 1594 – now a ruin.

At the time of daughter Elizabeth’s marriage in 1840, Walter was noted as a “farmer” .
