Hello David

There's a marriage given in the IGI/FamilySearch (and the GRO Index) for James Cooper Proctor and Katherine Dawes Saunders Adamson on 9 August 1855 at Rye.
Looking at the 1851 census, Katherine Adamson (age 16, born Rye) was living with her parents John and Jane at Middle Street, Rye. John Adamson is shown as being a GP, age 52, born Lambeth, Surrey, and wife Jane age 50, born in Devonshire(Devenport?). Weeden Adamson was Katherine's brother, age 20, an architect and surveyor.

At 1841 the Adamson family - John and Jane and 7 children- were living at Middle Street, Rye. The IGI shows a marriage at Rye on 19 January 1826 between John Adamson and Jane Saunders.

I hope this is helpful and happy to help further if I can.

Best wishes

I am researching my family history and have found a connection to you're village. Mt great grandfather married a Catherine Dawes of Iden around 1850. His name was James Cooper Procter from Rye. He was a surgeon and the family went on to live in Lydd. They had nine children any links to either Catherine Dawes or James Cooper would be helpful. Catherines fathers name was Weedon Dawes, Possibly a surgeon or lawyer.
