The BOXALL Line "Going Back"

My great grandfather (Thomas DAWES - The Builder 1840-1925) married Sarah Ann BOXALL (1841-1890) on 10 July 1864 at St. Nicholas Church in Brighton. They were married for 26 years when Sarah Ann died at age 49 in 1890. During their marriage they had nine children of which eight survived to aduldhood. Their family tree can be viewed in this earlier post.

The tree at left displays Sarah Ann's ancestry back to her grandparents John BOXALL (1778-1855) and Hannah HORNSBY (1779-1831). Her great-grandparents were Richard BOXALL and Elizabeth BRISTOW who married in Duncton, Sussex on 17 June 1772. Nothing more is known about this couple.

Of Sarah's five siblings only she and sister, Clara, had children.

Sarah died of Leucocythoemia (2 years) and Hemiplegia (1 month) according to her death registration. She is buried in the Brighton Woodvale Cemetery with her husband and daughter Ada. Her tombstone is shown in this previous post.
