    22 November. The will with a Codicil of Elizabeth Hammond (wife of Charles Hammond) late of Ringsfield in the county of Suffolk, Farmer, who died 21 October 1889 at Ringsfield, was proved at Ipswich by James Dowe of Beccles in the said county, retired Tailor, and Philip Dowe of Ringsfield, Farmer, the Brothers the Executors.

    I haven't tracked down her burial yet - it doesn't appear to have been in Gillingham.

    If not Gillingham, hmm, Saxlingham Nethergate is where Daniel was by that time o_O

    But not to worry if you can't find it. Thank you for all your help :)

    I did a bit of work on him the other night - the marriage doesn't look as though it went so well (but I haven't dug too deeply yet). It'll be interesting to see what you have already.

    Hmmm, my underwhelming impression is that they didn't get on, but who knows :( he probably just wanted someone to look after his girls
