1851 Census

This is the first census taken after the death of Edward's wife Phoebe, and it shows him aged 50, at home with daughter Elizabeth, a pattern that was to remain in all of the remaining censuses.   Edward's occupation is given as a Fisherman, daughter Elizabeth is a Housekeeper.   The surname in this census is Peck, but this may be a transcription error by the enumerator.

1871 Census

In this census, Edward was shown as the head of the family, and a widower.   He was aged 70, but still shown as a Fisherman, so perhaps even at this age he was still going to sea and facing the elements.   He was living in Barn Lane Cottages with daughter Elizabeth, who seems to have taken over the duties of her mother.

1881 Census

The 1881 census, in regards of content, is pretty much the same as its predecessors.   Edward is now aged 80, has an occupation shown as Formerly Fisherman, which presumably means he has retires, and is still living with daughter Elizabeth.   She is now aged 60, and is once more shown as a Housekeeper.   The address is given as 8 Barn Lane, which puts the close to widowed daughter-in-law Naomi Peek, who was living at 9 Barn Lane.
