Note: There appeared to be just one family by the name of Dewy in Greenspond. Charles named his first son Richard and his daughter Sophia Jane. Sophia could have been the name of Anne's mother and Jane could have been Charles' mother. Therefore, it seems likely that Charles may be another son of Richard and Jane.
