Descendants of Henry Rawles


Updated 6-Jun-12


This Family Tree has been assembled from various sources and is an overview of more detailed information available elsewhere on this website, as in most research it contains some assumptions based upon the best available information. Some links have not been fully proven and are based upon dates, ages & birthplace.

I have much more on the descendants of some of these families

Important note Due to the fact that there are two William & Mary Rawles (or variant) in the area at this time, this listing may be incorrect, some evidence seems to indicate that his wife was Mary Norris who was born in Winfrith where her siblings are also shown. Some of the children shown here may also be incorrect. Research continues and listings will be updated as things become clearer! There may even be more Ralls / Rolls / Rawles / Rawls William & Mary couples in this area of Dorset at this time.
