Edward Dadswell's story

Edward Dadswell, second son of Edward and Elizabeth Dodswell, was baptised at Rotherfield on 21 November 1715. According to early family researcher John Dadswell, Edward farmed at Rotherfield, Sussex until 1760 when he moved to Barnsgate Farm at Buxted.

On 13 April 1768 he married Mary Taylor, daughter of Nicholas Taylor. He signed himself 'Dadswell', probably the first time this spelling had been used in the marriage registers. Edward and Mary had six children who were all baptised at Buxted.

Edward died at Buxted on 30 March 1802 and was buried there on April 3. His will, dated 3 February 1797, was proved at the Deanery of South Malling on 23 August 1802, and it named his eldest son Edward as executor.
