Surnames: FAWKE MATHIAS
I'm trying to find pre-marriage information on two members of the FAWKE family who both married into the MATHIAS family of Pembrokeshire.

1. Ann FAWKE born at "The Flights", Ledbury. Second wife of Joseph MATHIAS. 1841 Census in Haverfordwest gave age as 50. Husband born 1771.

2. Benjamin FAWKE of Ledbury bn c.1813 married Ann MATHIAS 1839 Pembrokeshire.

Thanks, Gomer.

Hi Gomer,
I don't know anything about the Fawke family members you're tracing but, was wondering do you know of a Henry Fawke c1899? He married my Great Aunt Phylis Tarling who I'm currently researching.
If you know anything about him or his family, I'd really appreciate your input.
thankyou in advance

Greyhouse,
I'm not sure if your message was intended for me however I am a Fawke descendent , and have come across my Fawkes living at Flights farm at various times.
A cousin of mine married ,Benjamin Fawke, married Ann Mathias in 1839 at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, they eventually lived at Southport Lancashire.
As the Flights farm and area features quite often in my Fawke line I would appreciate any info/details that you have.

Regards

Hi Dave,Thanks for prompt reply.message was really intended for Gomerd as he has lots of info. on my MATHIAS line but he hasn't responded to my queries as to where he fits in! I am a descendant of Ann Fawke's(nee Mathias)brother Joseph. His daughter Martha married her cousin James LLewellin and ended up in Neath, West Glam, where I was born and brought up. Their grandson Edward (My grandfather)spent much of his childhood with them as his mother died when he was young, he passed on lots of family info to me and got me hooked on family history.Just picked up Fawke thread again recently as had a message from a descendant of Mary Maria. I have a family bible listing descendants of BENJAMIN and Ann.Have visited Southport to see where they lived and burial places. Annie Fawke their daughter married a relative, Rev John Skittery, I am in contact with Skittery family, living in farm close to 'Flights' - they appear to be the only family with this surname in Britain! Would love to see a copy of your family tree and happy to pass on all info I have. e-mail me at greyhouse@hotmail.co.uk
I will copy all relevant info and photos etc and send to you if you give me an address - can only get dial up where we live so sending jpegs is not an option!
look forward to hearing from you,
Kathy Rees
