Edward Dodswell's story

Edward Dodswell, eldest son of Edward and Elizabeth (Elliott) Doudeswell, was baptised on 5 February 1679 and lived at Rotherfield, Sussex. He was churchwarden there in 1737-39.

He was married about 1709 to Elizabeth (family name unknown). She was from Goudhurst, Kent and brought considerable property to the marriage. The couple had 10 children, who were all baptised at the church of St Denys, Rotherfield.

Edward died at Rotherfield on 19 January 1763 and was buried there on January 25. His will, dated 18 June 1756, refers to him as 'Edward the Elder, yeoman' and named his eldest son Robert as executor.
