Who was John HARRINGTON's father
« on: Friday 03 September 21 11:31 BST (UK) »
I am currently researching the circumstances of a Court case in 1890 which involved Nottingham chemist Richard Beaumont Harrington (RBH).

Richard was the son of John Harrington and Mary Ann Beaumont and was baptised in Bury St Edmunds on October 18th 1823. I am trying to find a marriage for John and Mary Ann - and also the name of John's father (was he illegitimate?)

The Court case hinged upon how RBH was related to a William Richard Harrington - an organist and Professor of Music - who died intestate in 1889.

Many thanks

I was hoping Richard or Arthur would be with their Parents in 1841 but no.

1841 Census
Rochford, Essex

Richard Harring   15 Druggist
Both Not born in County

FreeREG has a Mary Ann HARRINGTON burial 18 Jul 1859 Rochford
Age 76
(c 1783)

Appears to be them 1841 in Bury;
John Harrington   55 Organist
Mary Ann Harrington 55 Not born in County
Ellen Harrington   20
Eudosia Harrington 10
Emily Winter   20
