looking for information on the Hawker family from Dorset.

Query by kalaidascope

I started looking for my g grandparents quite a few years ago, my great grandads name was John Donoghue and his wife was called Susan, but I could'nt make out the surname so I spent a number of years searching Kildare where my Gran was born in 1888.
Then about a year ago I discovered John Donoghue was from Wicklow so I had been searching in the wrong area.
Shortly afterwards I found out my Grandad had been a civil guard on the Isle of Wight and that led me to Susannah Hawker who was my g Gran, and appears to be Johns second wife.
Susannah was born in 1845 in Shaftsbury Dorset, her parents were Thomas Hawker born 1809 in Bermondsey Surrey and died in1889 in Fulham Middlesex,and her Mother was Maria Floyd born in 1815 at Romsey Hampshire and died in Cheetham Manchester in 1901.
I have some other details that go back to 1641 but it needs confirming . Ken

Do you have the birth and marriage certs to prove Thomas and Maria are Susanna's parents. they should show Thomas's occupation.

Re army record not as yet found any, not sure if he was in the army his occupation was a prison guard.

I dont have any certificates at the moment, I assumed John was in the Army because he was a pensioner and I thought there was not a state pension back then .
I will apply for the certificates shortly, thanks again for taking the time to look, Ken
