Hawker and Hall Family Trees

Notes


Elizabeth Hawker

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..


John Darke

Name found from the will of his grandfather John Hawker


Thomas Turner Darke

"DEATH OF APPERLEY SOLDIER

Mr. and Mrs. C. Hawker of Lower Apperley have received news that their son, Arthur, has died of wounds in Burma. L/Cpl Arthur William Hawker was in his 25th year and at the outbreak of war was working for the Gloucestershire County Council. He joined up in 1939 in the Gloucestershire Regiment and came through Dunkirk. Later he was transferred to another Unit with which he was serving at the time of his death. L/Cpl Hawker was educated at Deerhurst C of E School and was well known throughout the district and much sympathy will be extended to his parents.
