John Harrison 1881 -1917 Prescot, Lancashire.
« on: Monday 05 November 18 17:44 GMT (UK) »
Looking for John Harrison's Parents. He was born 1881 in Prescot & died in Colliery accident in 1917. I have found him in 1911 Census, married with one Son. Derby Square, Prescot, Lancashire would appear to be a link. I have searched FindMyPast, GR, Family Search & Freereg & FreeBMD without success as there are many John Harrisons. He may have had a Sister Ann (Annie). Any help or guidance would be helpful. Thankyou, Marianne

Do you have his marriage cert?  1911 should say how long married. That will have his fatherís name (hopefully) and occupation
Please tell us the name of his wife and son. And give the 1911 census references
currently concentrating on NUTCHER & MARSHALL families, Hampshire.
and family of Thomas ANDERSON a Tailor of Perth, Scotland

if I found the right couple in 1911 it would appear that John married Margaret Barrow in 1905 at St Mary Prescot.

I may be barking up the wrong tree here but the 1901 Census has
RG13/3517/F89/p4
20 Derby Street, Prescot
John Harrison 20 unm. Copper Wire Splicer Prescot
Ann Harrison sister 15 unm. Machine Minder Watch Factory Prescot
Ellen Murray mother marr. 42 Prescot

I realise the occupation doesn't match.

Looking on the GRO site I can find both a John and an Ann Harrison born on the appropriate dates with mmn Fairhurst

There is a marriage June 1881 Prescot 8b 998 between a Reuben Harrison and an Ellen Fairhurst

also

Ellen Fairhurst/Peter Murray Sep 1897 Prescot 8b 1122

Ellen is unmarried.
