Tracker Report 29 May 2010 19:32

I am searching for any relatives of Karla Martha HARRISS Formerly Hansen and Herbert Cecil HARRISS
They married late 1970's Herbert was then in his 60's they lived at 32 Heeswyk Road Canvey Island
Herbert died 1981 in St Josephs HACKNEY and Martha died about 2 or 3 years ago in Sweetbriar Canvey Island. I understand that a grandaughter dealt with Martha's death leading me to believe there was a child. I know of children up to1956 from Herberts first marriage to Ellaline Tibbles so these can be discounted. Martha was born 1929 ish she was German
Any leads would be appreciated

This is the marriage

England & Wales, Marriage Index: 1916-2005
about Herbert C V Harriss
Name: Herbert C V Harriss
Spouse Surname: Hansen
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1976
Registration district: Hounslow
Registration county (inferred): London
Volume Number: 13
Page Number: 0931
Find Spouse: Find Spouse

Spouse - Karla M Hansen

At first glance I can't see any births for Harriss with Hansen as the mmn. Had Karla been married before?

If she was born in the early 30's it seems unlikely (but not impossible) that she would be having a child in 1976.

There was a male child born in Jun qtr 1957 with surname Harriss and mmn Tibbles - you mention that you have children up to 1956 so could you have missed one that could have had a daughter? Would you like me to PM details.

Welcome to the boards. This is quite an old thread and "Tracker" might not come back to it now. If you click on the name "Tracker" you will be able to send a personal message and, provided she still has the same email address, Genes will let her know that she has a message.

Good luck
