Hawker and Hall Family Trees


Joseph Hawker

In the Gloucester mailing list at RootsWeb 1 June 2004, Mike Beacham states:
The GFHS cd of the 1851 census for the county has Joseph HAWKER, HD M 42, a master baker, at 16 Milsom Street, Cheltenham, with Harriet, WI M 45, Baker's Wife; Martha, DA U 15, Mantle Maker; Louisa, DA U 10, Scholar; James, SO U 8, scholar; and George, SO U 5. I know this is a bit before the date you are looking at, but unfortunately I have no other Cheltenham censuses.

However, Ann Victoria Wright (b 1957) sent an email to Graham Hawker on 3 January 2002 as follows:
"Attached a photo of Annie Pinnington, Elvia Price and Beatrice Hall. The
photo was taken when Elvia was about 4 years old i.e circia 1928.
We know Annie was a teacher so we conclude that the first entry you have
from the 1881 census is correct for her."

William Eagles

Email dated 2 November 2000 from Marcy Petersen Carthage, MO, USA
"Kent Petersen" <kentp@cox-internet.com>

I received your letter dated September 09. I searched through your website
and found you had a little bit on my Eagles and Margrate lines-which are two
of my main lines. I found this below. The Hannah here is Hannah Margrate.

William Eagles married Hannah.

Hannah married William Eagles.

They had the following children:

F i Elizabeth Eagles was christened on 4 Jul 1786.

But, what I am hoping you have is information on a Gyles Hawker. Actually,
I have atleast 2 Giles/Gyles Hawker in my lines. In Mrs. Elizabeth
Greening's 1625 will at Deerhurst, (the main line I am working on) she asks
that Gyles Hawker, my kinsman..."
