I am tracing Dawes (Daws) family in particular descendants of Samuel Dawes b1788 and Phoebe Billingham. They were married in 1809 in Kinsgwinford (St Mary\'s ).  According to my tracing their first child was not born until 1816.  Which seems strange.  They later over to Newport near Monmouthsire.  If you have any information re above I would appreciate it. I am descendant from their son William Dawes 1826/1877 who married Mary Ann Meese and migrated to Australia in 1877 he is my great great grandfather

My great-grandparents eldest daughter Rinah Ellen Marlow, born in Spratton, Northants.. in Sept 1869.  She was brought up almost from birth by her Uncle & Aunt, George & Annie Marlow in Blissworth.  They had all moved to 2 Wheeler Street, Stourbridge by 1901 where Gorge became a wagon builder with the GWR.  Rinah met and married a Chief Post Office Clerk, Ernest Whittingham from Market Drayton in April 1892, moving to 12 Baylie Street where they lived for the rest of their lives.  Anecdotally, it is said that there was a horse drawn carriage kept in a stable at the foot of their garden at the time of Rinah\'s death in 1949. All are buried in Stourbridge Cemetery.  I would very much like to hear from any other surviving relatives. David Marlow (Rec'd 23rd Jan 2015)

I originally posted this request in 2011 but since then have changed my email address so am hoping to re-post:  I live in Tasmania, Australia and my great-grandfather was Edward Thaddeus GREEN who established a cattle station at Georgetown, Queensland which he named \"Prestwood\". We suspected that he originated in Wollaston, Stourbridge (mid 1800s) and Prestwood confirms this. His father was Edward Michael GREEN and he married an Elizabeth EGGINGTON but I cannot find any definitive sources to confirm the family connections. Could anyone help please - I am new to genealogy and would appreciated any help to enable me to research further and fill in the gaps. Thank you, Rohan Weirman (Rec'd 11 November 2014)
