Daniel was probably born around 1800, as recorded in the 1851 Census of England. This also gives his birth place as Woodford, Northamptonshire, England. However, no Parish Register or similar has been located to confirm this. No reference to the identity of his parents has been found.

Daniel was employed in a variety of roles throughout his adult life. At the time of his marriage (1822) the register record has him as a labourer. Then, at the time of the 1851 Census of England, he was a Gentleman's Servant, living at Ansty, Warwickshire, England. In the the 1861 Census, his occupation was Farm Bailiff (overseer and rent collector) in Ansty. In 1871 he was a Farmer of 35 acres of land, still living in Ansty, and the 1881 Census informs us that Daniel was then a retired farmer, living in Ansty.

On 15 Oct 1822 Daniel married Anne Wolfe at Monks Kirby, Warwickshire. His residence then was given as Withybrook, Warwickshire, which is a small rural village located about 4km east of Ansty. Warwickshire. [1] However, when their first child was born (in 1823) their residence was recorded as Combe Fields, which is a rural area with no village, located immediately south of Withybrook.
The following two children (in 1825 and 1827) were recorded as being born at Shilton, 3km west - adjacent to Ansty.
These three children were all baptised at St John the Baptist church in Brinklow, Warwickshire, which is a large village, and is the next village to the south of Combe Fields.

Daniel and Anne moved into Ansty at this time, and three more children were born, and these were baptised in Ansty. The family was then:

Mary - (baptised) 1823
William - 1825
Betsy - 1827
Jane - 1832
George - 1834
Daniel - 1837

In July of 1868, Anne died, and was buried at St James Parish Church, Ansty, Warwickshire. [2]

On 30 Oct 1870, Daniel then married Sarah Bellamy, a widow who was previously married to William Wooleston (14 Oct 1828). [3]

Daniel died at Ansty, Warwickshire, on 08 Sep 1887. [4]
