I am trying to work out who Mrs Ann Harrison of Sheffield was. I am pretty sure she was born in Sheffield. Her first mention is in 1842 when she had a speech recorded in the paper. The last mention of her in the paper I found was in 1850. I think she was married to William Harrison. If I could find a William or Thomas Harrison mentioned as a Chartist that might help narrow it down. Can anyone find a mention of either as a Sheffield Chartist? Long shot I know.

A Harrison on here but very vague...not sure if he was a chartist or a policeman:confused:

Good document though.

Only Anne Harrison i can find is the origanal owner of Sheffields Weston Park.

No real evidence anywhere i can find Duckweed:(involved in the corn laws and a good poet!)

Edit...this could be a pointer though Duckweed....just noticed a statue of Ebeneezer Elliot is in the park.....wasn't he a big Sheffield Chartist?

Maybe she provided the money ....although i did look on the Chartist donation list and she is not on it.
