William Dadswell's story

William Dadswell was the second son of Edward and Mary (Taylor) Dadswell. He was born on 24 July 1773 and baptised on 22 August 1773 at Buxted.

On 6 April 1804 at St Saviour's Church, Southwark, he married Barbara Colbran. They had 9 children. The family was living at Stone House, Buxted in 1841 and later moved to Maresfield. In 1839, three of the children - Barbara, Anne and Edward - migrated to New South Wales, Australia.

William, who described himself as a yeoman (one who owned and cultivated his own land), died on 17 January 1849 at Buxton and was buried at Maresfield. His will named their sons William and Thomas as joint executors.
