CER B002: Witness
Caroline Burrows had a stroke when she was about 30 which robbed her of speech until 6 months before she died aged over 70. She used to write on a slate to communicate. She lived with Clara during this time. This infornation was given verbally by Muriel Hall to Graham Hawker on 16 April 2002.
Died very young
Family information taken from the Will of John Hawker dated 20 December 1828 held at Hereford and Worcester Record Office.John was of the parish of Eldersfield and the will was witnessed by Charles Coates.
Free BMD shows under the December quarter of 1840 the death of a Mary Hwker in Upton on Severn district (which includes Eldersfield) in Volume 18 page 33
Volume 3 - Baptisms & Burials 1790-1812
George son of John & Mary Halker 25 November
Could he possibly be related to Mary Everis who married William Hawker in 1765.
John mentions his grandsons in his will so probably this daughter died before the will (28 December 1828) having married a Mr Dark and having two sons. The name of this daughter was found by inference from Boyds Marriage Index (see source notes for the marriage) which itemises the marriage of Elizabeth Hawker and John Darke and the entry in Chaceley Parish Register for this marriage..
