Charles and Susan DOSWELL also witnessed the marriage of brother Edmund HARRIS in 1884.  He thought his father was a Horse Keeper.

I guess with this variety of details for the elder Henry Harris itís not so surprising if Henry junior got his fathers name wrong on his marriage certificate, or his own birthdate wrong later in life, or indeed that Henry senior maybe didnít register his sons birth until a few months laterÖ!!
 Itís just worrying me a bit that thereís both the discrepancy in names and birth dates. Not sure how to work out for certain what are the correct names and dates  :-\

If your Henry was born 27 August then it was 5 weeks till the end of that quarter.  If the birth was registered  the following week it would then be in the December quarter. 

I think the Henry John ELDRIDGE/HARRIS might have married Susannah MORE in 1887.  In 1871/1881/1891 he is living with his uncle George Harris in Warlingham and said to be born in Dulwich.  Just guessing though.

Makes sense! Thanks. So the record on freebmd for a Henry J in the 3rd quarter registered in Southwark would work. Will keep checking. Many thanks again debra. Have attached a pic of Henry :)
