Update on Harbord family.

In 1752 my ancestor Elizabeth Harbord (born c1731) wed Dennis Helsdon at St Peter Parmentergate, Norwich. In 1766 Sarah Harbord wed Thomas Dewing and a witness to the wedding was Dennis Helsdon. I think Elizabeth and Sarah were sisters. From 1761 to 1765 a Benjamin Harbord is listed in the church rates for Parmentergate, Norwich. He died in January 1766 aged 65. In the 1766 church rates, a Sarah Harbord is listed.

In 1724 a Benjamin Harbord married a Mary Budery in Norwich. Not yet found a baptism for Sarah but an Elizabeth Halbert (slight variation) was baptised in 1728 daughter of Benj and Mary.

Initially I did think the Eliz Harbord bap in 1733 to Robert and Rebecca was mine but she married a different spouse in 1756.
