In 1820, Hawes married Sophia Macnamara Brunel, daughter of Marc Brunel. She died on 17 January 1878. The marriage made Isambard Kingdom Brunel his brother-in-law; and in his capacity at the War Office, Hawes called in 1855 on the younger Brunel to design a pre-fabricated military hospital, for the Crimean War.

Famous quotes containing the word family:

    —the dark ajar, the rocks breaking with light,
    and undisturbed, unbreathing flame,
    colorless, sparkless, freely fed on straw,
    and, lulled within, a family with pets,
    —and looked and looked our infant sight away.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)

    Being in a family is like being in a play. Each birth order position is like a different part in a play, with distinct and separate characteristics for each part. Therefore, if one sibling has already filled a part, such as the good child, other siblings may feel they have to find other parts to play, such as rebellious child, academic child, athletic child, social child, and so on.
    Jane Nelson (20th century)

    Our society is not a community, but merely a collection of isolated family units.
    Valerie Solanas (b. 1940)
