    Calling all Harrington family members

    Dear John Sorry for the delay in replying to your post. I'm afraid I do not recognise any of the names you give and therefore have no evidence for a connection between your Harrinngton's and mine. Sorry, I can not be more helpful. Kind regards, Sarah.

    Hello everyone. To confirm GP's info. Kennith Trodd decends from John and Martha Trodd. Most Trodd trails seem to link us via this couple. Their daughter Harriett Trodd b. 1811 married George Pennicott. Before her marriage I suspect she had Benjamin Trodd b. 1842. Benjamin (above) married...

    Have tried to contact owners of said trees, waiting for replys. No Baps or marriage for William or Jane but their children are listed as John, Elizabeth, Rodger, Joseph, Jane and Amelia. The Dagwell senario could be a possibility. Will keep everyone posted as and when I find out more.

    Gotcha! But thanks for trying. Have done some investigating myself. There is a place called Stave Hill in Rotherhithe, built over much of what used to be Stave Dock of the Surrey Commercial Docks. So I am assuming he most likely worked at this Dock as a Porter. Thank you for sharing the book...

    Hi GP, Searching on behalf of a family member, I came across a male 48yr old's profession recorded as a "Stave Porter" in Rotherhithe, London in 1851. Can you help? And would love to know the title of your book. Regards Sarah.
