HAWES 1600-present day Oxfordshire, Bicester, Oakley
HAWS <1805 Witney Watlington

Notes: I have baptisms for John, 1805; Mary, 1806; and Hannah, 1810. Their mother was Susan Haws who is believed to have been in service in Witney when the children were born. The children were baptised at Watlington. No father named was named. Susan's parents were William Hawes and Hannah Reeves. She was born about 1786. Her older brother George was baptised about 1770.
