Re: John Harris

My grandmother Edith Annie Williams was the granddaughter of John Harris. She was living at Cople Dog Inn in 1871 and Octagon House in 1881 with her grandfather and other family members. She was born in 1868 to Mary Harris and Daniel Williams and came to New Zealand in 1885. Her siblings were Walter H (b abt 1867), Edward (b abt 1870), Amy R ( b abt 1871), Gertrude M F (b abt 1876) and Frances M (b abt 1880). I am unable to find them in 1891 and wonder if they all came to New Zealand too. I have some leads here but none confirmed so far. All were born in Wolverhampton except Frances who was born in Leicestershire.

Edith Annie married James Stephen Donaldson in Wellington, NZ in 1899. They had 5 daughters and 2 sons
