Hi, I have a mix up with this family. My 3 x Great grandfather was Thomas Harrison b Oct 1771 Liverpool and his wife Ellen Prescot b 1768 in Kirkby. I have their marriage in 1792 at St Mary in Walton (or a chapel of it ). I know of 10 children, but the first 2 I have no details of. apart from their names and dob They are Elizabeth 1793 and margaret 1795.
There is one other problem, their son, James harrison b c 1806 (Lancs OPC). On the 1841 census, Thomas and Ellen are living in Eaton St (off Vauxhall Rd) with James Harrison aged 38 and Eliz aged 14, Ed aged 10 and Jane aged 6 All born in county. Next door but 1 to them is my great x 2 grand parents Rd and Mary and their family. Piece:557 Book:13 Folio:34 Page Number:23
I presumed (not a good thing to do) that the James with Thomas and Ellen was their son and the children their grandchildren.. I can only find 1 marriage and no births for the 3 children. The marriage was 7 Oct 1822 to Elizabeth Joynson , but she is on the 1841 census , in Liverpool, West Derby, with her family Piece:568 Book:22 Folio:65 Page Number:14 (Lower Granby St on back??)
My James cannot be in 2 places at once. I have 2 DNA matches that have this marriage for James Harrison. s/o Thomas and Ellen. The surname Joynson has been carried forward as a middle name. I think there must be some connection, but I know not what.
Please can skp help me past this muddle. Thanks in anticipation Lynne
