The Thomas (1) DAWES Line

This is the 3rd Thomas in a string of four. I refer to him as Thomas "the bricklayer." He married Ann LANGRIDGE (1814-1876) in Lewes, Sussex on 10 Nov. 1834. He died of cancer at age 42 in 1851 right after the census leaving his wife Ann with five children under the age of sixteen. The children dispersed at this point and became very hard to trace. In 1856, Ann remarried to a James GALLOP and had a daughter, Caroline b. 1856 as well. In 1861, they were living in Brighton and had her son Thomas "the builder" living with them and working as a wheelwright.
