Oh wow, that's lucky I only started my tree this morning! And Dawes certainly rings a bell! Yes If you have any information that you think would help I would be very grateful my email is email@example.com as my knowledge of my mothers side goes back to 10th generation but on my fathers side I have so little!
Also I hope you don't mind me asking but are you in anyway related to a cynthia bennell? It's just that i work with a cynthia bennell and im sure she would find it very funny if we were related too!
