Nicholas Dodswell's story

Nicholas Dodswell, the fourth son of Edward and Elizabeth (Elliott) Dodswell, was baptised on 23 September 1684 and lived at Newmans, Rotherfield, Sussex.

On 12 December 1732, when aged about 48, he married Ann Luxford at Withyham, Sussex.

The couple had seven children, with all being baptised at Rotherfield. Nicholas and Ann Dadswell died within six months of each other, in 1765. By that time, Nicholas was aged about 81.

Nicholas and Ann were ancestors of siblings Nicholas, Elizabeth and Hannah Dadswell who all migrated to Adelaide. This 7-generation Family Chart shows the development of this Dadswell family (PDF file).
