    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.

    Oh, yes, here's the first that pop up on familysearch:
    Sarah Elizabeth, born 12 Mar 1818, bapt 1 Apr 1818
    Thomas Samuel, born 19 May 1811, bapt, 1 Apr 1812
    William Brine Harris, born 6 Oct 1809, bapt 1 Nov 1809

    see if this link works:

    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
