Family:Francis Forsey and Sarah Hawkins (1)

Facts and Events
Marriage[1] 6 Nov 1788 Winsham, Somerset, England

The gaps in Francis and Sarah's children are such that it is quite possible that there were other children whose birth or baptisms are not recorded or have yet to be found. One particular possibility is that they had a son, Thomas, whose death record suggests he was born about 1793 - after his death in 1840 Francis and Sarah's son Francis appears living with Thomas's widow and children in Winsham.

Also not clear if or how this family was connected to that of Samuel and Rachel Forsey who were living in Winsham at the same time.
