Harden of Cockermouth and Wigan
« on: Wednesday 07 August 13 10:01 BST (UK) »
Hi Vinnie,

I seem to be able to attach to a new posting. I forgot to mention that the photograph was taken in Wigan.

Copied from previous reply:
"They are my relatives and I have some family photographs. The one below was given to me some time ago and I forget all of the details without going back through all of the emails etc.

The boy in the middle front row is Richard's brother William. The lady, standing next-but-one to his right, is his mother, Ellen Darbyshire, and I believe Richard is the person looking over her shoulder.
One of William's descendants sent the photographs.

If I remember correctly, John is missing and I seem to remember that this was often the case.

Tracing Hardens can be difficult because they are often recorded as Harding. John's father was Richard Bowe Harden but I have still not been able to find his marriage to Annie, although a birth certificate for one of the children should help.

Richard's father was William but, again, I am not certain of his wife's maiden name. She may have been Mary Bowes - marriage 1810 in Cross Canonby."
