Edward Henry Dadswell's story

Edward Henry Dadswell

Edward Henry Dadswell, the first child of Thomas and Eliza Dadswell, was born on 26 January 1838 at Uckfield, Sussex.

At the age of 23, he married Dorcas Susanna Webb, on 15 September 1861, at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, Sussex. Edward Henry and Dorcas Susanna lived at Uckfield and had four children, all born in Uckfield.

Edward Henry was a baker and confectioner like his father Thomas and was active in his community. He was a member of the Baptist Church, the Uckfield Lodge of Oddfellows, director of the Uckfield Gas Company, director of the Uckfield Building Society and served on the Urban Council. He is listed as a trustee of the Uckfield Baptist Church in 1871.

He died on 5 June 1922 at his home “Beechcroft” on London Road, Uckfield after a heart attack; he was 84 years old. He survived his wife Dorcas by 4 years and his first son Thomas Edward by 14 years.

The property No 1 Prospect Cottages that his father bequeathed to his brother Thomas David Dadswell appears in Edward Henry’s will so it is likely that Thomas David sold it to him before migrating to Australia.
