Harrison - East Retford
« on: Thursday 09 February 17 21:19 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Am trying to find where a John Harrison was born in approx. 1800
In 1825 he was in Sutton Row, East Retford. In 1841 he was in Canal Row, East Retford with wife Sarah. He died in 1862 in East Retford. They had 10 children, all in East Retford.
From East Retford Records, there is no mention of his birth or marriage to Sarah.
Would appreciate any assistance anyone can give, please.
Thank you.

The 1851/1861 census should show his birthplace - have you found him there?

Hi Milliepede and keyboard86,
Thank you most kindly for your replies.
I was unable to find them in the 1851/1861 census.
The 1841 census  (H107/851/13/18) I honestly read it as Canal Row, I do know that there was a Canal Row in East Retford, but am willing to bow to more informed knowledge.
John and Sarah were certainly the parents of Gervas. Have also a copy of the parish record for the 1821 John.
Thank you,
Firefly23

I have answered this question on the Nottinghamshire board on Ancestry.That was posted on the 8th of Feb. The 1841,51 and 61 census give his birth date as circa 1776. His 1862 burial, the GRO has him as 85 years old. NFHS has his abode as CANAL Row, the same with Sarah's burial.

Thank you, Larkspur.
I normally get a notification of a reply post, but can't find one for Ancestry.

This information is really useful and helps me progress.
Thank you so much for your time and efforts.
