The marriage license of John Dawes of St Olaves, Hart St (bachelor, aged 30) and Christian Hawkins (spinster, aged 16) is dated 21 April 1663.

A petition by Dawes to the King about the disputed guardianship is in the National Archives. Dawes was the son and heir of Sir Thomas Dawes (who had been ruined by his loyalty in the wars), and was created a baronet on 1 June 1663. (Per L&M footnote)
