|Birth: ||Mar. 9, 1850|
One of four brothers.
Oldest brother William James Angove (1848-1926) left for America in 1868, settling in Calumet in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan. He raised a family and worked as a Copper Miner.
Richard Angove (1850-1917) served in the Royal Navy, signing up on the 26th of June 1865 at age fifteen, with the signed permission of his father James Angove. The papers show he began his service on the Impregnable as "Boy, 2 Class." Then he put in his voluntary obligation of ten years service after completing his training, starting at age eighteen (1868-1878). (See his seaman's papers, National Archives, England.} He later worked as a Marine Engineer, traveling the world. He married rather late in life at age fifty-two. On 14 Feb 1903 he wed Clara Rose of England. With his new wife, he traveled from Plymouth, England to America and retired as a Marine Engineer, settling on a farm in Kansas. Expressing probable longing for home, the inscription on his gravestone notes that he is from "Redruth, Cornwall, Eng." Various records give different birth years; 1850 is from the papers cited above.
John Angove (1851-1923) stayed at home in Redruth, married and raised a family. He worked as a Tin Mine Agent, and later as a Mining Engineer and Instructor at the School of Mines in Redruth. He died at Bullers Terrace, Redruth.
Youngest brother James Phillips Angove (1852-1873) also stayed in Cornwall, but died young at age twenty-one.
