    • Second son of Stephen Cave. [13]
    • Stephen Cave 1763-1838

      He was the eldest son of John Cave and Susanna Cox and he married Anne Daniel, Daughter of Thomas Daniel and Eleanor Neil, and they had nine sons and seven daughters. Each son on reaching the age of twenty (they didn’t all reach that in those days) was sent to meet their mother’s family. Their fourth son, Charles Cave, born in 1796, was sent to Barbados in 1816. He knew the Cumberbatch family, who lived in Bristol, so whilst in Barbados he called on their Barbadian cousins at Nicholas. He promptly fell in love with the daughter of the house, Sarah, who likewise fell for him. He proposed to her and they were eventually married on May 1, 1818, at Bath Abbey.

      Stephen Cave was a director of The Old Bank and also of The Bristol Glass Company, the firm that made the old blue Bristol glass, some of which can still be found today. He owned a large house called Cleve Hill at Downend, North of Bristol, and he had a house in Piccadilly in London.
