    3-9. Descendants of William & Maria Harris
    William Harris was born somewhere in England around 18091. William
    probably married his wife, Maria2, around 1834, possibly in Southwark, Surrey, where they lived when their first child was born. According to different censuses Maria was born in Eton or Eaton3, Bedfordshire, around 1807. Before 1837 the family had moved a short distance to Bermondsey where the rest of their children were born. William was a potato salesman in Bermondsey at the time of the 1841 Census. William Harris died sometime between about 1845 and 1851. In addition to losing her husband, Maria may have lost her youngest daughter, Louisa, during the ten years between the two censuses.

  • Notes 

    • [1841 Census]


      William is the most likely of two probable William Harris to have been the father of William Edmund Harris. The 1841 Census shows his age as 30, however, in that cencus ages were rounded down to the next multiple of five, so he may have been born between 1806 and 1811.

    • A William Harris died in Bermondsey, Surrey in the first quarter of 1847. Another William Harris died in Bermondsey during the last quarter of 1849. One of these was probably our William Harris. No age is given for either in the BMD Index.
