The Frances (DAWES) HEMSLEY Line

This is a small line. Frances DAWES (1814-1892) was the first child of Thomas "the labourer" and Elizabeth who was born in East Peckham. An 1809 removal order directed the family back to Uckfield, Sussex from Hadlow, Kent. They weren't quick in responding and had two more children in Hadlow before moving. Along the way they had Frances, Elizabeth, Mary and George before arriving back in Uckfield. Frances married Henry Hemsley (1812-1870) in Uckfield on 18 Oct 1840 and they had one child, Henry, b. 1837 before they married who died in 1853 at the age of 16.
