Brief History

 

David lived poor and died poor.  He spent decades living in workhouse lodging.  He outlived his wife by two decades, and also outlived his support in the form of his son John.  After John died, with no other means of support David moved from Goudhurst (where as far as we can tell he lived his whole life) to the Union House in Cranbrook.  The Union House was a home for the poor.  David died, probably there, two years later.
