Surname Saturday

Surname Saturday – Searle

The first ancestor in my tree with this surname was Susanna Searle.

My ancestral line is:

1 Lois Whimpey

2 Ivon Walter Whimpey (1923-2009)
3 Edith Jean Marr (1922-1990)

6 Wilfred Palmer Marr (1892-1955)
7 Edith Meriden Docwra (1904-1948)

14 Harry Docwra (1866-1934)
15 Emily Alice Oliver (1877-1925)

28 Alfred Docwra (1824-1903)
29 Mary Scott (1830-1885)

56 Tempest Sell (1787-1861)
57 Jane Docwra (1800-1840)

114 William Docwra (1768-bef 1813)
115 Elizabeth Quy (1770-1852)

228 John Docwra (1745-?)
229 Elizabeth Sell (1740-1782)

456 John Docwra (1705-?)
457 Sarah Barraves (abt 1710-?)

912 Francis Docwra (1670-1740)
913 Susanna Searle (abt 1676-1711)

Susanna married Francis Docwra on 3 October 1694 at Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, England.  She doesn’t appear to have been baptised in Bassingbourn, and without knowing where she came from, I am unable to confirm which, if any, of the baptisms for a Susanna Searle born around 1670 is for this Susanna.  I have therefore been unable to trace this line back beyond Susanna.

Susanna and Francis had five children:

  • Susanna 1695-?
  • Francis 1702-1782
  • John 1705-?
  • Thomas 1708-1709
  • Anne 1710-?

Susanna was buried 19 June 1711 at Bassingbourn.
