Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am researching the names HARMAN, READ AND MULBERRY from the Melbourn and Whaddon areas, until mid 1850s when they headed to Australia.
Joseph HARMAN was born in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire in 1804 and his parents were James HARMAN and Keiza HALL. He was a boot maker.
Joseph married Sarah MULBERRY (1800-1880) (f: Jonathan MULBERRY m: Ellen WAYMAN) in 1827 in Melbourn. They had 13 known children:
James - 1827
Mary Ann - 1829
James - 1830
Alfred - 1833
George - 1835
Jonathan - 1837
Reuben - 1840
Arthur - 1842
Sarah - 1844
Walt - 1845
Ann - 1848
Elizabeth Betsey - 1849
Alfred Winslow - 1852
All born in Melbourn.
My ggg grandfather James HARMAN (b 1830) married Susan (Suzanna) READ/REED (1830 f: William READ m: Mary WAYMENT) in 1852. Susan was from Whaddon.
They immigrated to Australia in 1852 to Portland.
Joseph and Sarah HARMAN also immigrated to Australia in 1853 as well as their children George, Jonathan, Sarah, Reuben and Alfred Winslow. Their remaining children appeared to have died prior to their move except Mary Ann who married a John LOATS.
The Harmans became a well known pioneering family of the Byaduk area in Victoria's Western District.
