Dunkin, Sarah Francis

Sarah Francis married John Hays Dunkin (1775-1858) on 16 May 1799.  She was probably the sister of Henry Francis, who married John Hays Dunkin’s sister, Elizabeth, in May 1803. A William Francis joined at Carter Lane in 1782, living then at 67 Aldgate, High Street. Henry and Sarah may well have been his children. John Hays Dunkin and Sarah Francis had at least five children: Henry Hays Dunkin, born 14 March 1800, at Cripplegate, London; Joanna Dunkin (17 August 1800, entered first at St. Peters, Maldon, Essex); Elizabeth Dunkin (5 July 1802); Emma Dunkin (16 August 1804) (p. 305 of records); and John Hays Dunkin (c. 1807-1824), of Winsley, Wiltshire, late of Beeleigh, Suffolk [now Essex] (see Nonconformist Registers, RG4-4663); see also the obituary on the death of the younger John Hays Dunkin in 1824 in the Gentleman’s Magazine,  135 (1824, part 1), p. 93.
