Hi Kerry

I have a John Fradley b:1858 don't know who he married but I have come across the Harison Family in previous searches.
John Fradleys siblings I have are Benjamin, Joshua, Elizabeth, Sarah, Thomas, Mary, William, Rachel, Ann, Rebecca and Charles.
My husbands tree has the boatmen in it.

Elizabeth Moore married Joshua Fradley after the death of his brother Samuel Fradley and had four children.

I am away on holiday at the moment and all the information I have is at home, I will have a look when I get home for any Harrison informaton I might had written down, have plenty of names of boatmen that I have come across whilst doing my research, never know when you might need them.

Hi, I have the Bromage family of boatmen appearing in my tree - they seem to have been on the Oxford to Coventry canal.  They were William Bromage and his wife Sarah - I have them on several census entries from Market Bosworth, Rugby and one address says California Oxford Canal.  All very interesting.

My Moore, Fradley and Wood Families are all connected by marriage, we must be connected by one of the marriages
