Census details

Thomas Chugg was a party to the brush with the law experienced by of William Chugg In 1910 William CHUGG of Keypitt Farm was summoned for not sending his 2 children, Thomas and Dorothy CHUGG, regularly to school. The School Board said these children were most backward in their education, and William countered by saying the school was nearly 3 miles from Keypitt. William was told he must send the children to school, and he agreed that Thomas would go to Ilfracombe National School and Dorothy to Ilfracombe Hermitage School. There is NO birth registered in Devon that could be Dorothy, so I think it must be Emily (who would have been 8 in 1910) or, much less likely, her sister Edith (13). From the way the memorial 1915 for Reginald is worded, Edith was dead by then, as there is only the one sister.

As a counter to this story, William advertised in the Devon and Exeter Gazette dated May 17th, 1904, for a respectable woman to teach 3 young children at home on the farm. He preferred a farmer's daughter or widow.
