UK records show that he was baptized 16 Jan 1803 at Brixton (sic Brighstone). On 24 Dec 1827 he married Jane Urry at Niton, Isle of Wight. They lived at Little Budbridge and at Hale where Emanuel was an agricultural labourer. They had 8 children. On 5 Oct 1857 they arrived in New York City from Liverpool with their 3 youngest children on board the "Robert Kelly". In 1861 they were farming on 5 acres on the south side of the village of Millgrove and in 1863 they bought a village lot on the north side of concession road in Millgrove.
