Does anyone have this name in their family tree? Specifically Thomas and Mary, plus children Ada, Annie, Robert, Thomas and Nellie.
It seems they went under the name of Edinburgh/Edinborough between 1871 and 1901 - we are wondering why!

Hello I can ont help with your question but I do notice you are tracing the surname Harris, this was my maiden name and I have traced my fathers history.
Which Harris family are you tracing maybe we have a link

:)
 
Jackia - thanks for response.
Regarding Harris family. Well, it's a little way back, but here goes. Elizabeth Harris was my great-great grandmother, born 1843, and her father was David Harris. He was born in Tardebigge/Webheath about 1795. His parents were Joseph and Mary. and he had a brother called Edward.
David was married twice I think, firstly to a Leah Hill and then to Emma - I suspect her name was also Hill, but I'm not sure.
His children were: Emma, Joseph, Keziah, Selina, Letitia, Martha and Elizabeth (my ancestor).
Harris is such a common name we'd be lucky to find a link - but you never know!
Regards
Jan

Thanks for this my family are from wales, so I do not think we are on the same track. I do hope you are succesful, as you have probably found out by now it is a drug, once you start you cannot stop but it is a great feeling when you discover new relatives even if they are so long ago.

Hi JanMary,
I do have the name in my family tree, but no link to Birmingham as far as I know.The name is spelt Vose most of the time in Lancs, mine where horseman and carters/carriers by trade.But the name is amongst many people who are craftsmen, skilled in pottery, silversmith,saddlers,Blacksmiths,shoemakers,watchmakers and other trades.If I have remembered it correctly they originate from French Hugonet families escaping from France and finding shelter here.Best wishes :) kerrymac.
