Aged 7yrs, John Quick jnr was bound by a private apprenticeship to the son of his father's employer at East Allington.
After a few years John Quick jnr and his master moved around lots of South Hams farms. But John jnr makes no further reference to his father. Seems a bit odd for John Quick snr to return to South Brent, but not out of the question.
Is there any mention of John jnr's sister Mary Ann Quick b1791. I don't know if she survived infancy or not.
Also John jnr in the Settlement Examination says he was bought up in South Brent by an aunt. I have never worked out if that was a real aunt or just a family friend.
