Hi Janet No Frasis in the area you want. There are some with spelling variations in Worc and a couple of marriages with different spelling in Lincolnshire


Vanessa Report 7 Oct 2003 19:11

Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to look up the elusive Thomas Tanner. Sadly these aren't him...they never are! But many thanks.

Hi Dawn No Alfred Covell. The only Mary Toogoods are in Lancs, Dorset, Wilts and Hants during that timeframe. Is Elizabeth Harmon the birth or married name? I wasn't sure if Burgoyne was the birth name


Janet Report 7 Oct 2003 20:32

Thanks for looking Teresa, but it's highly unlikely that the Worcestershire and Lincs members are anything to do with us. Worth a try though - thanks! Janet

Hi Teresa, Thank You for your speedy reply. I was hoping for a miricle regarding Alfred Covell & Mary Toogood because their births just do not seem to exsist......but my search shall go on...& on & on, etc!!! You asked about Elizabeth's surname, apartently HARMAN was her maiden name (even though she coindencely married a fellow Harman out in Tasmania, Australia) and BURGOYNE was part of her middle name - it is stated on her marriage certificate too. She was a servant in Oxfordshire, just before leaving England in 1854 and the Shipping List states as her being born in Oxfordshire but her tombstone says she was born in Brighton, Sussex. As you can imagine, trying to find Elizabeth's roots & family back in England, is like sitting on a Merry Go Around..... Teresa, I really do appreciate your interest, time and I can see that you've been a 'busy bee'......THANK YOU SO MUCH. P.S.......Do you mind if I ask you, where did you buy the 'Vital Records Index' (2nd Edition) from...........Is it the latest edition out, as I am going to do my utmost best, working on my Hubbi, to get me one for Xmas (someone is hoping...!!!!) All the best, from Dawn.

Hi Dawn I forgot to mention about the BVRI second edition. I got mine from the LDS website at for about $20 US. I am in Canada so this was the easiest way for me. There are 16 cds with 12.3 million records although still not complete for all counties. I have had mine for about 18 months or so. I am hoping they will update it again soon. Teresa

A Million THANKS for sending me all the Elizabeth Harman's listed around 1837 (plus 5 years), you have given me some hope on finding her. Thank You again, for your time, etc......and wish you loads of luck with your own researching. Take Care Teresa. Best Wishes, Dawn.
