James Harry Dadswell's story

James Harry Dadswell, the third child of Martin and Eliza (Hemsley) Dadswell, was born at Kingston, Kent and initially trained as a butcher and worked at Hastings, Kent.

In 1885, he married Elizabeth Ackrill and the couple is believed to have had six children.

James and Eliza left Hastings and moved to farm at Bishops Waltham, Hampshire. Their son Herbert John Dadswell, who had migrated to Australia, returned to England in 1928 to help work the farm. Both Martin and Eliza lived long lives - she died in 1949 aged 86 and James died in 1958 aged 97.
