Edward Dawson’s mother was Sarah Ann Pepperel. She is listed as ‘Ann’ in some of the census records so perhaps called herself that. She was born in Exeter and baptized in 1821, to John Pepperel and Jemima Damerall.
Jemimah was born to James Damerel and Elizabeth Wood, baptised 19th May 1793. (Parish register – GD).
There has been extensive research completed on the ancestors of the Damerells. The names of those ancestors are included in the attached family trees. They reach back to 1658. I will include more info soon.
