According to the 1881 census a thirty year old Amos, his wife Sarah, their baby daughter Amy and a lodger (Amos Harmer) were living at 9 Trevor Gardens and Amos was working as a labourer in the chalkpits.
A decade later they no longer had a lodger but had been joined by three more children and he was working as Foreman of the Coal Wharf.
He was still doing the same job ten years after that but by then they'd moved to Wharf Cottage, had their fifth child and taken on another lodger (Ernest Miller).
