    • Thomas Hewitt's first wife died in 1865 following the birth of their only child Winifred.
      In 1869 he married a first cousin Fanny Dugard Powles when she was only 18 years old and he was 32. The marriage took place at Eversley Parish Church in Hampshire and was conducted by Fanny's half uncle the Rev. Richard Cowley Powles and witnessed by her eldest brother John Fleetwood and Mary Powles (the wife of Richard Cowley). The ceremony was performed by Canon Charles Kingsley, author of The Water Babies.
      There is a mystery in the 1911 Census - someone (other than Sir Thomas) writes: "married 20 years, no children". See below.
