      Interesting Timothy. Do you have a link to Henry Hawson, who came to SA in 1839? If so I’d love to see a copy. You can email me direct if you want, by clicking on the ‘contact’ link above, for Eirene.

        I’m not sure, however my Uncle has our family tree going back a fair way. I’ll have to ask him,

        Hi Tim

        My connection is already up.

        Henry’s father was Gregory Hawson b. around 1761 in Dartmouth and d. around 27 Aug 1835, St Clements, Dartmouth, England.

        Mary Tapley who he married on 17 Jan 1787 in St Petrox, Dartmouth, England was b. March 16 1763 in St Petrox.

        I have made contact via email with the Church in St Clements, Dartmouth hoping to get the birth certificate and death certificate for Gregory Hawson which seems to be evading us all!! but he was probably born in St Petrox and buried in St Clements, Townstal.

        I also think I found 1 sisters for Gregory: Mary b. 1763 d. 1825 St Clements; Elizabeth b. 1775 d. 1849 St Saviours (maybe a relation of some sort) and a brother George b. 1765 d. 1807 St Clements.

    It would be interesting if we could get the birth certificate for Sidney may give us some insight to Sidney’s starting point.

    Cheers Jane
