Notes: Sarah Downing, being Cardiff's only centenarian had numerous articles written about her.

In the year of her centenary the Western Times said the following:

"Tomorrow will be the hundredth birthday of Mrs Downing, of 52 RIchards-terrace, Roath. Many happy returns of the day to the dear old lady. Mrs Downing was born on February 26th 1816, at Beckland, Harland and now resides with her daughter, Sarah Harding.
A few days ago we had the opportunity of meeting this remarkable old lady at her home, and found her most ready and willing to engage in a quiet chat. Though her sight is naturally little defective and her hearing somewhat dull, she is nevertheless quite happy and takes no little interest in passing events.
Her memory also is wonderful. It carries her back to the days when her father had only five shillings a week to keep himself and four little ones. And she remembers the time when he used to be billeted out for the winter on some farm or other.
There were no school attendance officers in those days and so, when Sarah was nine, her father ran no risk in having her bound parish apprentice at Brownsham Farm. It may be that the strenuous open air life of those days explains her longevity.
Sarah stayed on the Brownsham farm until she was a romping ruddy faced lass of one and twenty. On attaining her majority she removed to Woolley, near Mornwestow, Cornwall, and there Cupid began to weave a tale. It seems but yesterday to the grand old lady since the joyful day in March of 1837, when she promised to love, honour, and obey John Downing, of that parish. That chapter of felicity continued unbroken until 1890, when death came and closed the book.
After her husband's passing, Mrs Downing removed to Cardiff, and there she has since remained.
THOUGHTS OF HOME
But though she is many miles from her native village it became apparent, as we talked with her, that her mind often wanders back to Devon. Still she speaks of the Brownsham farm days and of how they used to go via Newberry Hill to Hartland Church, and heading the "butifulst" bells ring from the old tower. There was then only one carriage driven to church - that from the Abbey.
And the impressions of fifty years at Morwenstow have naturally a very prominent place in her thoughts. The name of Morwenstow at once reminded us of the celebrated Hawker, the eccentric and clever Vicar of that remote parish and Mrs Downing was delighted to recall her early association with this world-famed clergyman.
In common, however with the majority of the West Country folk, her inclinations were away from the Anglican Church towards Methodism, and consequently for long years she was identified with the people called "Bible Christians" in one of the neighbouring villages (Eastcott). She knows nothing of United Methodists to-day, but she is pleased at any time to have a talk with a "Bible Christian" minister.
"Yes," she said, "our ministers at home were good men, and they were greatly beloved by the people. They had to work very hard. Journeys in the circuit were very long, and difficulties very many, but that always seemed happy and were read to sing and shout for joy."
Samuel Crocker, Thomas Woolridge, William Courtice and Samuel Pollard (sneior) were among the many who made a deep impression on the religious life of the neighbourhood, and Mrs. Downing speaks in highest praise of their labours.
Mrs Downing speaks in gratified terms of all the love that is showered upon her. "I receive," she said, "nothing but love and kindness, God has been very good to me, Jesus is with me always." There are times when she grows just a bit weary, and then she finds herself longing for "Home," but she is not impatient. "The Lord knows best. When He wants me He will send for me, and then, I shall be quite ready to go."
Mrs Downing is still hale and hearty, able to get about and reads a newspaper every day.
A hundred milestones on the highway of Life. They span a long and tortuous journey. May the old lady's last few miles be pleasant ones to tread."

Devon Yearbook the following:

"Earlier in the year, on February 26th, another native of Devon attained her hundredth birthday. This was Mrs. Sarah Downing, who was borin in 1816 at Beckland, in the parish of Hartland, and now lives with her daughter (Mrs Harding) at Roath, Cardiff. Although she cannot get out of door, she is able to move without aid. Her only infirmities are deafness and defective sight; otherwise she is well and hearty, and bears but little indication of her years. Her father, Francis Cory, was a farm labourer in receipt of only five shillings a week wages, and yet he managed to bring up four children, one son and three daughters. "He was billeted out for the winter with one farm or another." Sarah was baptized on March 24th 1816, by the Rev. William Chanter who himself lived to the age of 92, and, when she was 9 years old, she was bound parish apprentice at Brownsham Farm until she was twenty-one. She remembers going up Newberry Hill on her way to church, and hearing the "beautifullest" bells ring from the old tower; they were then new, having been recast in 1826. The only "carriage folks" who attended the church came from Hartland Abbey. On attaining her majority she moved to Wooley, in the adjoining parish of Morwenstow, and on March 26th 1837, she was married by the eccentric vicar, the Rev. R. S. Hawker, to John Downing, a farm labourer of that parish. During the half-century and more that she lived in Morwenstow, she was connected with the sect of dissenters then known as the "Bible Christians" but now incorporated in the "United Methodist Church." Since the death of her husband, in 1890, she has lived in Cardiff with two of her children, but prior to that date she had never, so far as she recollects, travelled by railway, for her home was eight miles from the nearest railway station. Altogether she has had six children, three of whom are still alive. There are thirty-seven grandchildren, a very large number of great-grandchildren and two or three great-great-grandchildren, making up five generations - a truly remarkable family."

A similar article appeared in a Cardiff magazine, also in that year, probably based on the same interview:

"Mrs Downing who lives with her daughter, Mrs Harding, at 52 Richards Terrace, Roath, Cardiff, was born on February 26th, 1816 at Hartland, North Devon, so that by the time this month is out she will have passed her hundreth year.
We saw this remarkable old lady in her home a few days since and found her most ready and willing to engage in conversation. Her sight is defective and hearing somewhat dull, but apart from these drawbacks, she appeared wonderfully well, and manifested no little interest ih passing events. When about 20 years of age, on the occasion of her marriage, she removed from Hartland to Morwenstow, North Cornwall, where she resided for more than 50 years. The name Morwenstow at once reminded us of the celebrated Hawker, the eccentric and clever Vicar of that remote parish, and Mrs Downing was delighted to recall her early association with this world-famed clergyman. In common. however, with the majority of the West Country folk, her inclinations were away from the Anglican Church towards Methodism, and consequently for long years she was indentified with the people called "Bible Christians" in one of the neighbouring villages [Eastcott]. She knows nothing of United Methodists of today,but is pleased at any time to have a talk with a "Bible Christian" minister. "Yes" she said "our ministers at home were good men, and were greatly beloved by the people. They had to work very hard, journeys in the circuit were often long, and difficulties very many, but they always seemed happy and were ready to sing and shout for joy". Samuel Crocker, Thomas Woolridge, William Courtice and Samuel Pollard(senior) were amongst the many who made a deep impression on the religious life of the neighbourhood, and Mrs Downing speaks in highest praise of their labours. Our aged friend came to Cardiff to reside with her son a quarter of a century ago, and was then regarded as being in a somewhat feeble state. There are two sons and a daughter (Mrs Harding) living, the eldest of the family reside in America, and is fast approaching his 80th year, but to his mother he is still "my boy in America".She speaks in gratified terms of all the love that is showered upon her. "I receive" she said "nothing but love and kindness, God has been very good to me, Jesus is with me always". There are time when she grows just a bit weary, and then finds herself longing for "Home", but she is not impatient. "The Lord knows best, when He wants me He will send for me, and then I shall be quite ready to go"."

Notes: John was living as a farmer's servant on John Littlejohn's fam in 1851. This is probably because the Littlejohns family were friends. In 1861, William Littlejohns was a lodger with John and Sarah Downing (1861 census). He would subsequently work on his father's and his own farms.

John emigrated to the United States in 1888. As a farmer, in a remote parish, with the agricultural depression of the 1880s, emigration to the United States must have seemed encouraging. John followed his eldest son William Petherick Downing who had migrated in 1883. Around these years the remainder of the family with the exception of Lucy Ann and Emily also left for the United States and settled in Pennsylvania at various locations.

He subsequently returned to the UK to visit his family on several occasions. In 1912 he visited his mother Sarah in Cardiff. He was accompanied by his eldest son William Petherick Downing, his daughter, Mrs Emma Brown and her infant child. This visit was featured in the Cardiff press and in The Hartland and West Country Chronicle at the time. Sarah was 97 years old at the time.
