on one of the workhouse records in the early 1900s, Harriett gives her date of birth as the 18 March 1843

Just found this birth record and someone has added a note to it to also be Harriet Ellis.

Name:   Harriet Swain
[Harriet Ellis]
Registration Year:   1845
Registration Quarter:   Jan-Feb-Mar
Registration district:   Penzance
Parishes for this Registration District:   View Ecclesiastical Parishes associated with this Registration District
Inferred County:   Cornwall
Volume:   9
Page:   235

It's the right quarter going by the what she gives on the poorhouse records.

No mother's name listed, which would make you assume she was born illegitimate. Now I am wondering if Harriet might be the illegitimate daughter of Grace Swine. Maybe Harry ended up with her daughter instead.

this, of course, ties in with the Grace Ellis and Harriet Ellis in the workhouse together in the 1851 census. Now to work out why the switch from Swine/Swain to Ellis.

If my theory is correct, I wonder how she felt about Harry picking her daughter over her, unless the marriage in 1865 of Grace Swine is actually Harriett Ellis, as she appears to be using Grace in 1871.

Such a confusing family.

it definitely looks like the marriage in 1826 in Cornwall of Grace Ellis and John Swain is Grace's parents or at least her mother.

She was most likely born before they married. Such confusion with this swapping of the Ellis/Swain name.

this could be her parents or it could be grandparents.

edit: it looks like her grandparents, as this looks like Grace Ellis/Swain mothers birth

Bermondsey 1dMary Ann Fisher 1867 D mmn ELLIS

Hi again, what is the relevance of the children being born in Redruth and registered in Surrey?

1871 census

Henry Fisher 35 occ Tanner b Newington
Grace 25 b Bermondsey
Mary Ann 3 b Redruth, Cornwall.
Census ref RG10/632/102/18
Keyboard86

I wonder if the places of birth got mixed up in the census form. Should be bermondsey for Mary Ann and Redruth for Grace maybe. I do think Grace is actually Harriett here.

Hi Tea Clipper

I am still researching this side. I am not related, but another relative is and I am doing the research for them.

You can send me a private message if you like with your email address. As you can see I have pieced together quite a bit now on Catherine, so would love to see what you have found too.
