Thread: William Brine Harris

  1. #11

    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

    If you each click on the other's name you can send your email address in a PM (private message) which isn't seen on the forum
