28 June 1838 saw the coronation of Queen Victoria.

The little church of Hamworthy in Dorset saw a different ceremony: the marriage of George Hawkins to Susanna Moore (variously spelt!). Susanna's family was probably relieved as their first child was born in the September quarter and the dresses of the day can hardly have concealed the fact.

Hamworthy church was destroyed during the Civil War. This replacement was built by the parishioners. Susanna's mother, Sarah contributed labour towards its construction. Sadly, they used the wrong materials. It had to be replaced withi a few decades.
