my family live in Carlisle, cumbria decendants of robert george dawes, b 1875(also my fathers name) who came from cockermouth where we know they worked in the flax mill known as 'the goat'(from gote/gate as in sluice gate)a watermill has been in the area since roman times, we know that many of the men in the family were engineers...firstly ship building and the watermills..later steam engines for the railways and the mines(coal,graphite,copper)and have been carters ...they would have lived and worked in cockermouth, maryport and whitehaven as these are all small coastal towns...and in those days you lived where there was work. it's not a large family so we are sure to be related. if i can be of any help...let me know.
