The Lucy (DAWES) CHAPMAN Family

Lucy was a problem for a long time because she disappeared after her father died in 1851. A Lucy DAWES b. 1834 married a George WARE (1828-1873) in Newick on 22 Aug 1858 but she identified her father as Laban DAWES. Because of the age discrepancy and father's name I didn't pay much attention to her until I was researching her sister Ann. Ann married James PHILLIMORE (see The Ann (DAWES) PHILLIMORE Family) and in 1874 named a son George Ware PHILLIMORE. That brought me back to Lucy because her first husband was George WARE and he died in 1873, the year before young George Ware Phillimore was born.
I then found a marriage for Lucy WARE to William CHAPMAN (1833-) who listed her father as Thomas DAWES - bricklayer. William had 6 children with his first wife Deborah MOSCROP (1829-1875) and the youngest son (E.J. CHAPMAN b. 1873) was the informant on Lucy's death certificate where she was identified as the widow of William CHAPMAN so he died before 1917. In fact, he is missing from the 1911 census where she is found in the Aged Pilgrims Asylum, Islington, London so he died before 1911. Other than step-children, this line ends with Lucy.
