Here you are, Saar3,

I found the Harrisons eventually, the family is listed as 'Hamson' on 1891.

The writing on the Census sheet is not the best I have seen (surprise!)

*****


Hamson, James 41 Barnsley, Yorkshire Head 
Hamson, Rachel E 31 Darton, Yorkshire Wife 
Hamson, Manon H 10 Barnsley, Yorkshire Daughter 
Hamson, Godfrey 7 Barnsley, Yorkshire Son 
Hamson, Constance M 4 Barnsley, Yorkshire Daughter    
Matthewman, Josephina 3 Barnsley, Yorkshire Niece 

Barnsley
Yorkshire
RG12/3771 Folio 60 
Page 23

****

I hope this helps you.

Dear B

Thanks very much - it helps a lot.

Just as well the children had fairly uncommon names!
