Hi Mike
Youve previously helped with my Harris family from Hugglescote
I cant find any info from the Anglican P R 's so i am wondering if you have access to the Hugglescote Baptist records please
Im looking for the birth of Elizabeth Harris ,she was b about 1810, and according to her mar details her father was William Harris. There is a William Harris who was a member of Hugglescote Baptist church
Eliz Harris also had an illigitimate son named Charles Harris b about 1834 Hugglescote. Ive never been able to find his birth either so please could you look in the Baptist records for that
Thanks Marion in oz
