Establishing Link

Postby lin1506 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 8:36 pm

Hi, New to this, so apologies if I do this wrong.
I am trying to establish the Family Tree for 'Hale' Family from Wiltshire.
My grandfather Frederick James Hale was born in 31/03/1907 (Urchfont) - died 09/1985 and was married to Gwendoline Ruby Gale (nee Mansell) - they resided in Melksham. He was the son of Edwin Hale 1875 - 1941, and Edwin was the son of Roland / Rowland Hale. And this is where I am having great problems. Roland / Rowland Hale married Sophia Daw - should be easy to make a connection with the surname Daw, but I have found 3 families with the same names, but differing dates - between 1828 - 1836. What advice can you give as I have looked and looked and looked and cannot figure my next step.
Many thanks
Linda

Witnessed by Pamela Daw

In the census Sophia Hale says she was born Enford, and there is a baptism there 16 September 1832
Sophia
Daughter of Timothy + Eliza Daw

Also a baptism at Enford of a Pamela Louisa Daw, 19 April 1835, same parents

Many thanks for replying and indeed of supplying the information. I know where I went wrong, I combined 2 families with the same 'name' for a father. The information you provided meant I was able to correct this.
It is the HALE family I am trying to work on. If I am right in what I have done I have managed to get further back. And it is producing some interesting initial information. I hope to further look into any war records etc, as I know one family member was a POW, a few were given medals, and I believe one was lost at sea in the war.
Again I thank you for helping me.

Hale Family

Postby Haled280 » Tue May 19, 2020 6:56 pm

Really interested in the above, I am also researching this very same area. My family line stems from not Edwin but his brother Henry. I have been passed down information from now deceased relatives, that Rowlands father James was married to an Elizabeth Daw, which is strange as Rowland married a Sophia Daw. However I try and search this, I seem to keep coming to the fact that Rowlands father James was not with an Elizabeth Daw but Elizabeth / Eliza Spreadbury? Is there anything I can be missing here? I noticed on Ancestry that another family tree had manually entered Elizabeth Daw married to James Hale also. I'm sure it must be.
