    John Lawson

    Thank you to those people who have responded to my recent postings. Through your responses I have contacted someone in England who has a Lawson database and they have been able to answer several of my questions. I am now well on the way to finishing the jigsaw puzzle. Regards

    John Lawson married to Ann Lawson and maybe Henrietta

    Hi Barbara, thank you so much for your response. Since I posted the last post, in fact just in the last couple of days, I have managed to contact a person in UK who has a database on "Lawsons" and he has been able to answer several of my questions. John Lawson (my ancestor) did remarry...

    John Lawson married to Ann Lawson and maybe Henrietta

    Thank you barbarajoh, Henrietta still remains a mistery. I have this piece of paper which has been passed down the family in a "black box" that is why I am chasing Henrietta. Thank you for you help

    John Webster Lawson

    Thanks gibbo, I did think of that. I have a cousin with Ancestry.com she is going to have a look in there otherwise I will try and chase up a marriage certificate and maybe a divorce record. William Webster Lawson is certainly my ancestor John's father, so you would have to think it is him - I...

    William Lawson son of William Webster Lawson

    All I have is the names in the attached document - Joseph Henry, Edward Arthur, Maria Louisa, Ellen Wilson(Thackeray) and William Webster Lawson's wife Elizabeth. This is what I am trying to find out. I think John Lawson (born 1795/96) re married Henrietta Wilson sometime after his wife Ann...

    John Webster Lawson

    John Webster Lawson, was in Australia in 1901. He went to Paris to study Art mid 1890's then on to Australia around 1895. I believe he studied at the Sheffield School of Arts and South Kensington school London, that is why I was a bit surprised by a marriage & daughter as he wouldn't have been...

    John Webster Lawson

    DaveHam9, the entry in 1891 Draughtsman Artist fits for my John Webster Lawson, he was born in 1855 not 1856 and he is still in Sheffield. He is listed as single, so I don't know what happened to his wife and daughter

    John Webster Lawson

    I know ask the question if John Webster Lawson was married to Hannah Frith in 1880 I wonder what happened to her and their daughter Elizabeth, as I have no record of a former wife and child. John married my Great Grandmother in Australia in 1898.
