Jane Head & Family continued

Maria’s birth in Hastings would seem to indicate that they were living here since at least 1844, Charles died in 1849 and in 1856 (and possibly earlier) we find Jane Head of St Clement Hastings - Settlement examination dhbc/DH/B/92/3/174  20 Nov 1856

In the 1861 census Jane is living at 1, Castle Terrace and her occupation is shown as Fundholder, which would suggest no further need for a Settlement Examination.

The 1871 census shows her daughter Emily living with her at Castle Down Terrace, as well as a 12 year old visitor, a grandson, son of Mary and her husband Henry Harrod. They also have two servants.


Two of the 22 children of Elizabeth Butler and Nathaniel Dawes

+Daniel Butler Dawes, b. 29 Nov 1762, d. 19 Apr 1849, Winchelsea.

+Weeden Dawes, b. 13 Nov 1768, Winchelsea, d. 16 Nov 1840, Clapham Surgery.

Both are named in A list of the names of the members of the United Company of merchants of England trading to the East-Indies - 1826

Hence Jane Head and Daniel Butler Dawes  (the younger) are first cousins. [AH L23]

Christopher Myers Dawes is Daniel's brother. He married a Caroline Johnstone [AH A11]
