To close this chapter of the Dawes family I need to explain what happened to two daughters. The first is Florence Ellen DAWES (1870-1870) whose birth was registered in Brighton during the June Quarter of 1870 and her death was registered September Quarter of the same year so she only lived for a few weeks or months at the most. She was baptised in St. Nicholas Church on the 5th June 1870 as were both of her older brothers Walter and Ernest.
Ada DAWES (1876-1908) was born 31 Dec. 1876 and died of peritonitis on 2 May 1908 at age 32. She is buried with her mother, Sarah BOXALL, and her father Thomas DAWES.
NOTE: See my earlier blog on Thomas to view the tombstone in Brighton Cemetery.
