Samuel Pascoe Gloyne and Emma Jane Coombes married in East Stonehouse in the 2nd quarter of 1851. At the time of the 1851 Census in March that year, Samuel Gloyne (22) Merchant Sailor, had been lodging with John Coombes (55) Widower, a Scavenger (a scavenger, as a job in Victorian times, was a dustman or street cleaner), his unmarried daughter, Emma Coombes (21) and John Coombes (2), Grandson at 10, Lower Lane, Saint Andrew, Plymouth. 

A record from 1853 lists Samuel Gloyne (b. 1828) as a Merchant Seaman.

Samuel and Emma Gloyne went on to have at least four children together: 

  1. Charlotte Emma Gloyne b. 28 Dec 1854
  2. Emma Jane Gloyne b. 28 Jul 1858
  3. Samuel Richard Pascoe Gloyne b. 14 Aug 1861
  4. Maria Gloyne b. 1863

The first three of those baptised, on 1 Sep 1861, at Charles Church, Plymouth.

In 1861, Samuel Coombes was away, presumably at sea, while Emma Gloyn (sic) Mariner's Wife, was living at 1, Gasking Street, Charles, Plymouth. John (13) was then listed as John Gloyn, rather than Coombes and had become a Rope Marker's Assistant. With them also were Charlotte (6) Scholar, and Emma J (2).

In 1863, the England & Wales Merchant Navy Crew Lists, lists Samuel Gloyne (35) as Able seaman, of the 108 ton vessel, Gipsey, owned by John Bayley, Merchant from Plymouth, under master John Searle of Guildford Street, Plymouth. Samuel Gloyne joined the vessel on 1 Jul 1863.

In 1881, Emma Gloyne was lodging at 37, North Street, Plymouth, just with daughter Maria Gloyne (17) General Servant (Out of Employment). By 1891, Emma Gloyn (60) Nurse, Widow, was lodging in Mildmay Street, Plymouth.
