BMDB data

     John Dawe was born cir. Jul 1782 Buckland Monachorum, DEV, ENG, assumes correct id in 1841, certainly the John C with them is likely to be their grdson.4,2 He was baptized on 15 Jul 1782 Par. of Buckland Monachorum, DEV, ENG; John Son of Joseph and Ann DAWE.2
     John Dawe married Elizabeth Horrell on 15 Jan 1806 Shaugh Prior, Dist of Plympton, DEV, ENG, cert. shows John DAWE as yeoman, Par. of Bickleigh; Elizabeth HORRELL spinster of this parish. Both signed. Wit: Joseph DAWE, Henry DAWE.1,5
     John Dawe died bet. 1841 - 1851 ?Tavistock, DEV, ENG; several candidates, assuming stayed in the Tavistock district.6
     The Bower connection is what makes me assume that the John married to Elizabeth HORRELL is the one born in the right timeframe to Joseph DAWE & Ann MILDREN - that and the use of Crossman as a middle name for his own son John.
Examination of assorted marriage certificate signatures was inconclusive as to whether the same John, Henry and Joseph siblings were involved, they looked sort of similar, but not identical to me.7

All the other info

Buckland Monachorum, the other marr. to Mary POPE, labourer of Netherton - but the latter is more likely to belong to the Gentle DAW line - or to the Sampson of Netherton??11 John Dawe witnessed the marriage of Abraham Harvie and Agness Dawe on 4 Apr 1820 Par. Ch, Buckland Monachorum, DEV, ENG.12

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
