Hawes Family History
I am currently researching the family history of Michael (Mick) Hawes, a friend of mine for the past 50 years. He is particularly interested in the paternal side of his family, whose roots are in North Suffolk. Mick's father, Percy Hawes, was born in Wickham Skeith, but his father George Hawes (Mick’s grandfather) was born in Horham in 1870. George's father, also called George and his mother, Jemima (née Elliott) were also born in Horham, in 1833 and 1838 respectively. They had a total of eight children: William (b.1858), Anne (b.1861), Frederick (b.1863), Charlotte (b.1866), Louisa (b.1868), George, Angelina (b.1873) and Thomas (b.1875). The family lived in The Street, Horham and George snr. was a farm labourer. Going back further in time, George Hawes's mother Charlotte (b.1796) was from a Redlingfield family, her parents being Robert and Lucy Hawes (née Baldwin) who married in Redlingfield Church in 1784. Jemima's mother Mary, was born in Horham in 1817 and was the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Elliott (née Harvey) who, I believe, married in Rishangles Church in 1804. The name Hawes is relatively common in this area and I wonder if anyone has any family connections with George or Jemima, or has done any research on the Elliott, Baldwin or Harvey families. If so, I would love to hear from them. I can be contacted at 25, Precosa Road, Botley, Southampton SO30 2NW, via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01489 78120801489 781208.
