Henry Doe and Elizabeth Doe

All Saints Church, Little Canfield, Essex

Henry Doe (bap. 20 Sep 1778), son of Henry Doe and Elizabeth Stones, married Elizabeth Doe at All Saints Church, Little Canfield in 1799. Either there were a lot of parish foundlings given the surname Doe in that area, or we have to consider the possibility that these two may have been cousins.

This Henry and Elizabeth Doe had eleven children, baptised at Little Canfield: 

  1. Sarah Doe bap. on 19 Apr 1800
  2. John Doe bap. on 14 Feb 1802
  3. William Doe bap. on 22 Jan 1804
  4. Edward Doe bap. on 17 Nov 1805
  5. James Doe bap. on 24 Jan 1808
  6. Elizabeth Doe bap. on 28 Nov 1809
  7. Jane Doe bap. on 25 Nov 1810
  8. Mary Doe bap. on 11 Apr 1813
  9. Charles Doe bap. on 15 Oct 1815 
  10. George Doe bap. on 21 Sep 1817
  11. Moses Doe bap. on 4 Feb 1821

The last child was a posthumous birth, Henry Doe (40) having been buried at All Saints, Little Canfield on 28 Sep 1820. 

In 1841, Elizabeth Doe (61) was living in Little Canfield with her daughter, Sarah Gunn (41), George Doe (23), Moses Doe (20) and William Gunn (13). And in 1861, Elizabeth Doe (80) - place of birth listed as Great Easton, Essex - was living with her son, George Doe (43) at 11, The Village, Little Canfield.
