Harridine Gray
« on: Friday 18 September 20 07:27 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am doing my friends tree and her gg grandfather is Robert Gray bn 1832 Norfolk ,I have found a marriage for Robert and he lists his father as Harrodine Gray occ Hawker. 
They seem to move around East Anglia abit looking at the few records I can find.
I cannot find anything on Harridine and his name is spelt differently on most of the records but have found a Gray married a Harridine in 1750s so am assuming that's where the name come from.
Has anyone heard of him and know if they were travellers ?

Assess the records that you have found for location and occupation.
Occupation and residence typically shows if they travelled.

WE don't know when/where/ what records are "your" family.
You haven't even stated when/where Robert wed, not the names of the witnesses.
Nor where he later resided, together with any other known family members.

Sorry for asking as I said the records are sparse
Sometimes I wonder why people have to be so rude and blunt with their replies .I was simply asking if anyone had heard of the name before and if they thought they were travellers . I will enquire on other sites .Thank you

You say Robert was born Norfolk, have you any idea where as I assume that you have not found his baptism.  Who were the witnesses to his marriage.  Where do you have him on census 1841/51/61
