  • Notes 
    • In the 1861 census the best match is a man in the Royal Navy, it is possible it is him as he may not have been married yet anyway. But it could also be Edward William Gates 1836

      In 1862 they lived at Lamberwell Middlesex. In 1870 he was a deacon at Castle Street Congregationalist Church, Exeter. Edward Wilson Gates, draper, was one of the original trustees of Southernhay. In 1871 he was a silk mercer living at 9 Peamore Terrace, St. David Parish, Exeter, Devon. Two servants were living with them.

      He was more widely known for other activities. In 1883 he retired from the family business. He left to undertake philanthropic work with the London Congregational Union and later also with a group called the Self-Help Emigration Society (which helped poor families migrate to Canada). I have a number of obituaries published at the time of his death which outline these activities.
