    Dale as Joseph was in 1851 a schoolmaster (can''t make out the word after this on census) in Croydon:

    Then in 1861 at Epsom a Curate without cure of souls, & housed with students & student teachers, it would seem likely he did his Ministerial study in Croydon or Epsom area perhaps. I googled : ministry training schools epsom uk..& likely sites came up. I seem to remember something ofthe type where he was mentioned,..maybe mixing him up with some one else. There must be a paper trail somewhere.

    Dale, although this is not strictly about the Joseph, I take it you know about his sons and their education (I'll post it in case you don't) ...

    Please check the original. I'm not transcribing well at the moment. Anyway, it seems he was both a schoomaster and a chaplain by 1853.

    Free Church of England
    Free Church of England. A small Protestant body which originated in a dispute in 1843 between H. Phillpotts, Bp. of Exeter, and one of his clergy, James Shore. It received definite shape in 1863 in association with the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion. In 1927 it united with the Reformed Episcopal Church, a similar group which had separated from the Episcopal Church in the United States of America in 1873.

    and Chaplain at the Abney-park Cemetery, Stoke Newington.
    Googling for information on Abney Park Cemetery - well there's quite a bit. Here's a snippet from one page I happened upon...

    "The Abney Park Cemetery Company opened its first venture-Abney Park-in May 1840

    Abney Park was unusual at the time in that it was expressly a place for Non-Conformists (ie persons who rejected the ceremonial and liturgy of the Church of England, instead worshipping in Methodist, Baptist, Congregationalists, Wesleyan and other chapels; the Quakers and Salvationists are similar groups), many of whom lived in the area."

    And here is a wiki page...

    Joseph can be found in all censuses up to and including 1891. It is an interesting progression. In 1851 (HO107/1601/F309, p 116) he is 25, a school master, with wife Jane, 22 and son Charles, 2months. They have 3 boarders and 1 servant. In 1861, (RG9/04110F46 p 90) he is a clergyman aged 29 (!), with wife Jane (now 30!!), sons John S, 9; Sydney E, 4; William G, 2; Edwin A, 1week; 3 servants, 1 pupil teacher and 4 pupils. In 1871 (RG10/0798/F?, p 148), Joseph, now 39, is 'Tutor Minister of the Epises Paul church'; Jane is 40, and they have Sydney, 14; Percy, 11; Frederick, 5 (was actually born 1864, according to FreeBMD); 3 servants, 17 pupils and 3 visitors. In 1881 (RG11/0298/F66 p 131) Joseph, now 47, is a curate at St Saviour's, and is a boarder, along with his son Frederick, now 16 and a Stock Broker's Clerk Watson. In 1891, (RG12/0406/F166) Joseph is a Clerk in Holy Orders and is a lodger in Lambeth, London. All census documents held by TNA. Crown copyright

    Joseph DONOVAN and his family are the subject of several other threads by dalek39.

    To avoid duplication, please restrict the discussion here to Joseph's activities as a clergyman. Thanks.
