Robert Dadswell's story

Robert Dadswell was the fourth child and third son of Edward and Ann (Carter) Dadswell. He was baptised at Eastbourne, Sussex on 13 August 1784. He became a shoemaker by trade.

In 1803, he enlisted in the Voluntary Infantry during the British-French conflict.

On 12 October 1809 he married, at St John's Church, Lewes, Phillis Burfield and the couple had six children. Robert is shown in the 1851 census living with his daughter Harriett (Harriot) and son-in-law Charles Juniper on Weston Road, Eastbourne. His wife is shown as Phoebe, perhaps a census reporting error or perhaps he had remarried.

Robert died at Brighton, Sussex on 27 October 1856.
