About Isaac Heaven

Isaac Heaven was born in 1800 in Thornbury, Gloucestershire and in 1828 he married Mary Little, born 1804, at the nearby village of Kingswood. [Note: Kingswood lies in a small area of Gloucestershire that was part of Wiltshire and it was annexed back into Gloucestershire in 1844. This fact frequently causes confusion in the records.]

Isaac was a stonemason and the births of their children show a typical array of birthplaces for people of this trade. The first 5 children were born on the east side of the River Severn and were Jane 1828, Sophia 1829, Lewis 1833, Ann 1834 and James 1836. Their 3rd child Lewis was born at Acton Turville, a village near Badminton. Almost every mason family I have looked at has one or more children born at Acton Turville because there was always a large amount of work for masons on the Badminton estate of the Duke of Beaufort and there must have been cottages available for workers. Similarly, closer to Thornbury lies Tortworth with a castle and a Court, both of which provided employment for masons.

Around 1837, Isaac and Mary took their family across the river to the Forest of Dean and set up home in Littledean, where they stayed. All the rest of their children were born at Littledean and they comprised William 1838, John Isaac 1839, George 1842, Rhoda 1845, Llewellyn 1847 and Mary 1849.
