Ellen Ridgeway (22), tenth and last child of Thomas Ridgway and Ann Tooze, married Harry Sampson (25), son of James Sampson and Sarah Jane Ponsford, at St John the Baptist ChurchSampford Peverell on 20 April 1908. Witnesses to the marriage were William Ambrose Quick, husband of Ellen's sister Bessie Ann, and Mary Sampson, Harry's younger sister (bridesmaid perhaps?).

In 1911, Harry Sampson (28) Waggoner on farm and Ellen Sampson (25) were living at Middle Pitt, Burlescombe. Living at Middle Pitt at that same time were Frank Stone, Ellen's first cousin, and his wife Frances.

Then Harry Sampson died, in 1938, aged 55.

In 1939, Ellen Sampson was living with her brother-in-law and sister, William and Bessie Quick, at 104, Barrington Street, Tiverton.

In 1947, Ellen Sampson remarried, at 61, to John W Salway. 

John William Salway (b. 1884), was the son of Charles Salway and Sarah Ann Galpin. In 1909, John William Salway had married Ellen Taylor, who had died in 1940. At least he was in no danger of getting his wives' names confused!

Ellen Salway died in Tiverton, in 1957, aged 71.

John William Salway died on 11 Mar 1972.
