Jane Leming Dawe
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 19, 1841
Cornwall, England
Death: Mar. 25, 1888, England

Jane was born to William and Anne Leming. There is question as to whether that was her father's birth name. He was from Devon. She was one of two legitimate children of the couple and was born in a village over the border in Cornwall.

Eventually, the small family came to Linkinhorne where she met Richard B. Dawe. The young couple married 24 Apr 1862 at the local registrar's office in Liskeard.

Richard was a copper miner at the time. They stayed in the area where his parents and grandparents lived. In 1869, Richard took the family to the west coast of Cornwall where Jessie and Alfred John, their youngest children of five at the time were born and baptised.

A few years later, the rest of his family migrated to north Yorkshire. I don't know if they moved first or if Richard did, but they all ended up in the same area, near North Skelton where the next five children were born to the couple.

Jane's father, William, lived with them from about 1870 to 1891. Richard was busy in the iron mines as was his father James, Richard's son Alfred, and his nephew John.

Jane died in North Skelton. They belonged to the Anglican church in Brotton where she was buried.

A lady can never receive too many flowers. To a great lady who gave England, Canada, and the US many ancestors.
