    Mary Anne presented Joseph with a Family Bible on his 29th birthday on 21 Jul 1869. References to information HFB on this site mean that the (or a) source is that Haskins Family Bible
    Between 1861 and 1871, it appears that Joseph came to (own? lease? work?) (some of?) The Green in Olveston.
    In the 1871 Census, Joseph was a coachman, presumably already at that stage to the vicar at Elberton (2 miles North of Olveston).
    Joseph left Olveston (soon after the birth of their 7th child Annie on 6 Mar 1876?) and his brother John took over at The Green.
    The vicar who Joseph worked for, called Nash, was elevated via Bishopstoke and Bishop's Waltham, all the way to Canon of Winchester Cathedral. Joseph moved with him.
    In the 1881 Census, they are at Roseneath Cottage, ? Rd, Hedge End Botley Hants (18km south of Winchester), with all 7 children aged 5 to 16.
    In the 1891 Census, at Hannington Cottage, Bishopstoke (13km south of Winchester), aged 50 and 48, he a Coachman Domestic, with only Edward 16 and Annie 15 left in the household.
    In the 1901 Census, the two of them, at 60 and 58, are at Bank St, Bishop's Waltham (8km east of Bishopstoke), at the Board Schools for Infants (whatever that was). His occupation is shown as Coachman (not Domestic), overwritten with Groom.
    Joseph died on 27 Sep 1913. Peter found Joseph's Obituary.
    He was buried in St Faith's Cemetery in Winchester. In later years, they may have lived in St Faith's Road south of the Cathedral.
    Photo of Mary Ann Cooper Haskins, possibly aged early 70s?, so c. 1913-15?
    Mary Anne spent her later years at 'St Cross' in New Milton (east of Bournemouth, with her unmarried daughter Edith).
    Photo of Mary Ann Cooper Haskins in1927, approaching 85, with her great-grandson John Bennett, b. 15 Mar 1927 (provided by Trisha Bennett).
    Tony Clarke remembers Frederic Haskins taking him to see them once c. 1930.
    Mary Anne died Mar qtr 1939 .
    This family might benefit from the remaining Census entries for 1841 and 1851. And from Fred's Birth Cert, and perhaps Birth Certs for the other 6 kids as well
    1. William [John?] HASKINS, b. 11 Sep 1864 (HFB) Olveston, d. 23 Mar 1929 5km east of Maidstone – Mar qtr 1929 (Hollingbourne 2a 1927)
      In the 1871 Census with his family at Olveston.
      In the 1881 Census, at 16 (?), a Domestic Servant in Garden, still with his parents and siblings at Hedge End Botley Hants.
      In the 1891 Census, at 25 (?), single, a Coachman/Groom at Lancaster, Holdenhurst (a tiny village just east of Bournemouth). [Anne's research found only one William born in Olveston and around his age; so this and what follows is a reasonably confident claim].
      m. Ellen Bowles, Jun qtr 1893 (Maidstone 2a 1241), aged 28
      No children (HFB)
      In the 1901 Census, they are at Thornhill Farm, West End (3 mi. south of Bishopstoke), each 36, he a Coachman Domestic. Her birthplace is shown as Kent Boughton [more, unreadable, possibly 'Mon (Chelsea)']. The only Boughton in Kent appears to be 5 mi. west of Canterbury, fully 30 mi. from Maidstone.
      Anne's found no evidence of any children.
      d. Mar qtr 1929 at 64 Hollingbourne (2a 1927) – a village east of Maidstone.
      Ellen Haskins (94), d. Sept 1959 (Maidstone 5b 510)
      [We had an earlier surmise from somewhere that he remained unmarried, and ended up as a Schoolmaster in Bishopstoke, but it sounds much less likely than the above].

      Tony said that they (later – 1930s?) had The Vine Pub at Bishops Waltham. This appears not to exist any more, or to have been re-named
      1. Marjorie Annie Paice, b. June qtr 1897 Droxford (2c 131)
        There's mention in the family bible of m. GARLINGE (HFB).
