Hi All. I have read with interest the various e-mails,and glad to note that you have spotted Dawe Joihn who married Grace Beal was a DAW. But many miss spellings happened in past years.
Now just to cause a little confusion-I also have a Dawe connection from Stoke Damerel (Oh no I hear !!) One of my christian names is Dawe.
William Dawe of Stoke Damerel married a Mary Buchan in 1839. His father was a Thomas and I think his father was a Samuel.
With all your research have you come across the above. They could be brothers.
I do have many records of Dawe/Daw including print out of Devon FHS Baptisms 183/39 and Marriages 1754/1837 if you need a look up.
