Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Skewen is about 2 kilometeres from Neath and Neath is the registration district. Unfortunately if you look on FreeBMD there are about four entires for John Harris in Neath around 1843/44. Take your pick!

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

There is a good tree on Ancestry with him in, starting with the 1851 census and going through to his death in Australia in 1920 but the details of his parents are just from the censuses and there is no baptism for him.

Too many people of the same name and too many non-conformist chapels with unpublished registers.

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Thanks Emeltee.

Thanks Elaine.

Was hoping 'Skewen' would sort them as most have Cadoxton-Juxta-Neath, or Cadoxton or Neath or just Glamorgan.

Yes, John died in Auburn in NSW in 1920. Buried CofE Rookwood.

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Marriages Sep Qtr 1865
Harris John Neath 11a 692
Powell Martha Neath 11a 692

Daughter's birth certificate has marriage written as 16 Feb 1865 ?


Quote:
John filled out a book for entry into Australia for his family in June 1883. A Mrs Howells listed as personal reference.
I have not yet found who Mrs Howells is.

John's arrival not yet found.

Arrived in Sydney onboard 'North' 24 Dec 1883 with three children but not husband John.
HARRIS Martha 35 and son
HARRIS Bertie 8 and mother
HARRIS John 17
HARRIS Evan 15
Departed Plymouth 22 Sep 1883 Arrived 24 Dec 1883
Single Women
Martha 35 Domestic Servant Glamorgan CofEng Yes
Bertie 8 School America No

John & Evan listed under 'Single men'

No second shipping reel with details of parents. Also therefore no mention of any relations already in the colony.

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

No sign of a birth reg for Martha. I can't confirm 15 Mar 1848 date.

Family looks to be CofE and not NC.

Shipping record CofE, burials in NSW are CofE.

Burials in Glamorgan are at St Catwg Church Cadoxton Juxta Neath.
