His second marriage was to Elizabeth Breeze daughter of Chatlotte Reeve and Henry Breeze. They had fifteen children.

I have a great deal of information on these families that go back a number of generations.

Lawson, Hamsterley, County Durham, C18th
I am researching a branch of the Lawson family that appeared in Alnwick in the 1750s (see earlier postings) but which may have originated in or passed through the Hamsterley area. The birth of a John Lawson is recorded in Hamsterley in 1753, son of Mark and Dorothy. I have never seen the actual record, only the IGI entry. Our John Lawson was the right age to have been born in 1753 and was also the son of Mark and Dorothy, according to his marriage record - which also stated that Mark was a shopkeeper in Alnwick. Does anyone have access to the Parish Records or other archives of Hamsterley or the surrounding area, to check whether there were any births of Mark, or marriages of Mark to Dorothy (in around 1740-53), or of evidence of any more children?
