Selected descendants of a (the main) DAWE family from Buckland Monachorum, Devon


Another Sampson, who just has to fit in the above Buckland Monachorum, Devon tree somewhere.
It has been suggested that he is the son of Joseph & Ann (MILDREN) DAWE - which means he went from yeoman of Netherton (to 1828), to a widowed gardener living (1851) with his nephew John Crossman WILLCOCKS.
Does anyone have any information on when Hannah nee CARWITHEN died, and where?
Neither Sampson or Hannah are immediately obvious in the Buckland Monachorum burials, where their youngest children are buried.
If Hannah died prior to 1841 the id may well be correct.
