Thomas's second wife was Mary Ann Jaycock or Jack or Jacomb and they had children James 1863, Maria about 1863, Sarah 1856, Thomas 1868... all born in Minto twp, Ontario

-----> If one assumes that the above 4 marriages are all children of the same John & (Winnifred) Sarah Hewlett, then the family looks something like this Henry James born in Toronto about 1875, Ellen born in England about 1872, Annie born in England about 1870 (marrying twice??), & there was probably also a daughter Alice. .............. this family does appear in the 1901 census for Toronto in ward 1 (F-6), page 6 as John HEWLETT born on 9 Feb 1843 in England, age 58, to Canada in 1874, occupation = church caretaker, + wife Winnifred born 16 March 1846 in England, age 55, to Canada in 1874 + children: Alice M. born 26 Feb 1875, age 26, domestic; Charles born 3 Dec 1879, age 24, printer; Bessie, born 1 Feb 1888, age 13; and Frederick, born 31 Jan 1890, age 11.

This family is also in the 1881 census, in York East, (microfilm C-13248, or LDS website) as John HEWLETT, 37, laborer, his wife Winnifred 35, children: Annie 10, Ellen 6, Henry James 4, Walter J. 3, and Charles 1. The older girls, Annie & Ellen, were born in England; the other children were born in Ontario.


#004248-88 (Grey Co) Thomas HEWLETT, 34, farmer, England, Scarboro twp., s/o James & Martha, married Elizabeth GALLOWAY, 28, Collingwood twp., same, d/o Edward & Elizabeth, witn Francis GALLOWAY & Mary WRIGHT, both of Collingwood twp., 19 Dec 1888 at Collingwood twp.

---------> The family of James & Martha Hewlett: I have found this family buried at St. Margarets in the Pines cemetery, West Hill Ontario (close to, if not in, Scarborough which is now part of Toronto). James 1819 - July 19, 1888 and Martha 1819 - May 24, 1891. Thomas Hewlett is also buried here (Jan 10 1853 - Nov 26 1924) along with his wife Elizabeth (nee Galloway) ( 27 Oct 1860 - July 23, 1936). Henry & Eliza Jane are not buried here. Other Hewletts buried at St Margarets Ellen E. 1890 - 15Sep 1891; Herbert F. 13 July 1905-20Aug1905; C. Percival 17Feb1903 - 27July1919; Edward J. 25Aug1891-4March1957; and Earle M. 24Feb1901-31March1969. I am not sure how they are related to each other but birth & death registrations would give the answers.
