    William Brine Harris

    William was born in 1809 and was baptized at St Matthew, Bethnal Green which was bombed in 1940. He married Mary Watts in 1832 in Stepney, and a son, Stephen Alfred Harris ( gt grandfather ) was born around 1837.
    William and Stephen emigrated to Tasmania most likely in 1851/52. He took over the license to the Sailors Delight Hotel in Hobart in 1852 and married Mary Ann Leonard the same year. William and Mary Ann had six children.
    I am trying to discover if Stephen had any siblings. Love to hear from any other descendants.

      Oops, those are William's sibs. Here's Stephen's possible sibs:
      Joseph Benjamin, born 9 Mar 1843, bapt 5 Apr 1843 /* St Matthew */
      William James, born 31 Dec 1847, bapt 11 Jun 1848 /* St Pancras */
      William Henry, born 18 May 1847, bapt 18 Jul 1847 /* St Andrew */
      Mary Harris, born 20 Jan 1846, bapt 22 Feb 1846 /* St Matthew */
      You'll probably need the actual records for abode & occupation info, to narrow the selection.

      try this link for the above info:

          Nudge - can someone find the family in 1841, confirming or negating my guesses above? I wasn't able to locate Stephen in 1841

              Post # 3 was the one that you wanted - Stephen's possible sibs. Hopefully someone with a sub will check census records. I didn't see a sign of them in 1851 census either.

                    Thank you for your offer of help. William was also my gt gt grandfather. My gt grandfather was his son, Stephen Alfred Harris ( b around 1837 ) by his first wife Mary Watts ( m 1832 ). He came to Tasmania with his father around 1851/52. Have not yet found any record of them arriving here yet, and I am looking for any info on Mary and any other children she and William may have had. I have the 6 children from William and Mary. Coincidentally we lived on the Sunshine Coast for 25 years.
                    Regards
                    Robert

                      William Brine Harris, my gg grandfather too.

                      Louisa Caroline Harris was 4th child to William & Louisa and also my ggrandmother. Louisa Caroline married John Gerhard Larsen, they had Violet Maude who married James Joseph Snow. Their eldest son Reginald James Joseph Snow was my father. I am trying to find out when William arrived in Hobart as well as when & where he met Louisa Leonard.

                        I have found a Mr and Master Harris arriving in Hobart on the 29.3.1852 on board the "Emma". Dates are right. I believe William came out with his son Stephen by his first wife Mary. Whilst I have not yet found a birth record for Stephen, there are two references to William and his son, and Stephen and his father in the Cornwall Chronicle ( 5.1.1867 and 6.2.1867), regarding hotel licenses. As yet I have no further information on Louisa.

                            robjons hasn't been on the site for some considerable time sherston and may not see this message. Can I suggest that you send him a Private Message by clicking on his name and you will see the box come up. If he still has the same e-mail address he should receive an e-mail advising him of your message.

                              Hi Sherston,
                              WBH was my 2nd gt grandfather. Descendent via his first wife Mary Watts. He arrived in Hobart with his son Stephen Alfred in 1852, 11 months before his marriage to Mary Leonard. I have been unable to find a death for his first wife.
                              Regards,
                              Robert

                                    Hi Margaret,
                                    Happy to exchange family details. Would be most interested in your descendancy chart. I have some interesting facts regarding ancestors back to WBH's grandfather. The forum deletes any email addresses, so I don't have yours.

                                    Cheers
                                    Robert
