William and Ursula Hawes of Solihull

Anyone who is researching the Hawes family has most likely read Edmond Hawes of Yarmouth, Massachusetts, by James William Hawes. I came across an article while browsing back issues of the NEGHS Register this evening: Reinterpreting the Vital Dates of WilliamB Hawes and His Wife Ursula from Their Memorial Brass (by John C. Brandon). It’s a great article regarding alternate reading the ages/birth dates for William Hawes and his wife Ursula Colles.

Also in the footnotes is a link to a blog that will be of interest to those researching: one entry deals with the St. Alphege Church (where the brass memorial is found) and the other deals with Hillfield Hall (the manor built by William Hawes). There are some great photos.
