Biography

Isaac Burrow is one of twins.
  • Isaac Burrow was born in Milverton Somerset in 1824, but was removed along with the rest of his family back to Ottery St. Mary (OSM) in eastern Devon when he was just one month old. From the wording of the removal order, he had a twin brother Abraham as well - since they were both one month old at the time of the removal. The twins grew up in OSM.
  • Isaac's father John died of Dropsey (Edema) in early 1839 when he would have been 16 and a half years old. It appears that the twin brother Abraham seems to have been a child of poor health.
  • In the 1841 census, Isaac was living in Talaton, a community a few miles away and working on a farm. In that same census, his twin brother Abraham was back on OSM still living with his mother, who by then, had already remarried.
  • Abraham does not show up in any further census records while Isaac does. There is a death record for Abraham Burrow in the Sep Quarter of 1844.
  • IN 1851 Isaac was working in the Broad Clist area, which is situated between Ottery St Mary and Exeter city. This MAY have been how he met his wife Jane Selly.
  • Isaac married Jane Selley from the city of Exeter in 1854. Jane came to live with Isaac in OSM and she gave birth to 6 children in total, 5 of whom survived to adulthood.
  • In the 1871 census Isaac's father in law from Exeter, James Selly was staying with the family in Ottery St Mary. James Selly died in 1874 at the age of 88 or 89 - depending on which record you read. Jane Burrow nee Selly, died in 1881 after the census for that year was taken.
  • For most of his working life, Isaac had worked in various unskilled jobs. He is listed on several census records as a farm servant, an Ag Lab, an Ag Drillman and as a Shepherd. After his wife died, Isaac moved in to live with his son John, and John's wife Elizabeth. He died in 1913.
