Ann DAWES was born in Uckfield on 12 July 1843 and baptised at Holy Cross Church on 22 Oct 1843 the same day as her older brother Thomas. On 13 Aug 1866 Ann married James Phineas PHILLIMORE (1845-1921) of Brighton. In 1861, there are two Ann DAWS' found working in the Royal York Hotel, Old Steine, Brighton with one aged 16 and the other 20 so this Ann could be either since she should have been 18 which is squarely in the middle.

Ann and James had 6 children of which only George Ware PHILLIMORE (1874-1930) moved the family into the twentieth century and I am in contact with descendants of this line.

Ann died 03 Dec 1888 at age 45 in Steyning. Her husband remarried in 1913 to Kate MOULDING.

Correction: I just received a copy of Ann PHILLIMORE's death registration and she died on 03 DEC 1877 not 1888.

(L-R) Ann Dawes Phillimore and son George Ware Phillimore

  1. Hi, so pleased I found your blog, not a direct relation but Walter Phillimore's wife who married Gertrude Matilda Howard is the sister of my gr gr grandfather George Howard (children of William and Matilda Howard nee Green). I am still searching for George's birth record as the family moved around a lot!
