Dowling and Harrod
« on: Saturday 22 September 07 21:01 BST (UK) »
Hi!  Any help with tracking Sarah Elizabeth Dowling - born Wisbech approx 1870 (husband's gt. gran). - she married Thomas William Arthur in 1893 at Kings Lyn.

We have details of them already but I am keen to expand the tree - the rest of the family are concentrating on the "Arthur" side.

Also, if possible, Thomas William's mum - Elizabeth HARROD.  Again from Wisbeach.  She married John Arthur in 1856.

Ah - James is a COAL porter on 1881

1871 census

Wisbech St Peter

Elizabeth Arthur wife (head of family at sea) 35 Mariner's wife Norfolk Wormingay*
Sarah A Arthur 11
Mary E Arthur  8
John R Arthur 6
Thomas W Arthur 4
George H Arthur 1

children all born in Wisbech

*think the place would be Wormegay, Norfolk

Class: RG10/ Piece: 1616/Folio: 77/ Page: 13

The 1831 census for Wormegay, which you can find at:

shows that there was one head of household named HARROD.

Tony, I was bowled over to receive your reply!

Strangely (and who believes in coincidences?) I had only just been going over the family history stuff yesterday evening after a break of a couple of months!

I had e-mailed my husband's cousin, David Arthur, in Australia to say I was picking up the threads again.  David has done most of the work in tracing the Arthur clan; I'm a bit of a late-comer!

If you can let me have an e-mail address I can send you John Arthur & Elizabeth Harrods Marriage certificate.  They were Thomas William Arthur's parents.

My main computer crashed a couple of weeks ago and I have photos of Thomas William on the hard-drive.

Sarah Dowling was his first wife and the mother of my husband's grand-father, Thomas Sydney Arthur.  Thomas William (Sarah's husband) emigrated to Australia and re-married.  He had a further family out there -2 sons - Nelson and Beresford, I think.  The wife of one of them is still alive and has given David heaps of information about the Arthur connections but we knew very little about Sarah's family.

I have asked David if I can pass on his e-mail address to you.  I'm sure he'll be fine with that.  In the meantime, I'll get on to the old computer and drag the stuff off the hard drive.
