“Nathaniel Kevan married Phebe Pask in 1819 in the presence of Sam’l Kevan, Peter Kevan, Oliver Pask and Elizabeth Pask. After the death of Phebe, Nathaniel married her sister Elizabeth in 1828. Oliver was rememberd in his will - see probate record attached. He was originally a slater, see attached Pigot’s directory for 1839 and census for 1841 but became a collector for the gas company and was wealthy enough to leave £450 at his death in 1862, a not small sum of money at the time.

I have not yet been able to establish his relationship with Peter Kevan, slater of Bermondsey and witness to his first marriage, nor have I been able to find any more details on Samuel. However, Nathaniel and Peter lived next door to each other in Southwark, 11 and 12 Magdalen Street and held properties in the area. There was a definite connection in these with a Samuel. There is also record of a James Kevan, born around the same time as Peter and Nathaniel but I have not found a definite connection.
