  • Name George DAWSON 
    Relationshipwith Andrew GOTHAM
    Born 20 Oct 1867  Biggin, Derbyshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From the 1911 census where shown as aged 43
      Entered first as 3 Jany 1860 (her wife's birthday); changed (probably at the time the form was completed) to 20 Oct 1867, later changed to 77!
      However, Biggin was in Ashborne RD, where there was the birth of a George Dawon registered in 1867, but not in or around 1877 (not another between 1866 and 1885).

    • From the PR entry (image on Ancestry, viewed 30 Nov, 2018)
      Shows George Dawson, son of Thomas and Martha, abode Biggin, father a Labourer
    Gender Male 
    Died Between 1945 and 1948  Stoke on Trent Reg Dist, Staffordshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Two deaths of George Dawsons of the right age recorded after 1939 in Staffordshire:
      GRO ref: Dawson, George q1 1945 aged 77 Stoke RD 6b 273 and
      Dawson, George q2 1948 aged 80 Stoke RD 9b 403
      - both of the above have the correct age for a birth in Oct 1867.
      Another in Derbyshire, but being in Shardlow RD some distance from where George was living in 1939, and giving his age as 78 early in 1944 points to a birth in 1865 (if Oct) and so seems less likely to be this George. In addition, there was a George Dawson living in Shardlow Rural District in the 1939 register, with his dob given as 2 Apr 1866. I think it is fairly safe to assume the Shardlow death was his and we can rule the death out as being this George.

      There is a probate calendar entry for the one who died in 1945, but the address does not match either of the addresses in the 1939 register
      (the other at the time of the register was living at 35 South Street, Whitfield, near Stoke-on-Trent, with a dob of 19 Oct 1867)

      More research to be done.

    • GRO ref: Dawson, George to Gotham, Eliza q4 1904 Stoke T. RD 6b 359
      Venue from UKBMD website (viewed 9 Apr 2015)(I did think it was probably the Eliza whose birth was registered in 1879 who married in 1904; however finding a George and Eliza to fit in the 1911 census shows Eliza was the one born in abt 1860 - age and birthplace match, and right length of marriage)
