Isobel Crowther & Herbert Harrison - Melbourne Victoria Australia

Query by MsSinclair

Isobel Harrison (nee Crowther) was married to Herbert William Harrison and both lived in Footscray Victoria near the Footscray football grounds. Had 4 children, 3 daughters and 1 son.

Would like to search the parents of Isobel. I believe that Isobel had a sister Bes who lived in Victoria also.

Would like to find the parents of Herbert Harrison. Mothers name Rose and fathers name possibly William, 3 children 1 boy and 2 girls. Father of Herbert left Rose and remarried whilst still married to Rose.

I am trying to research my fathers side of the family, the Sinclairs. I have had some research done into my mothers side of the family, the Harrisons and would also like to find out more about the Crowthers (maternal grandmother)

Father: William Armstrong HARRISON.
Mother: Eose Harriet Smith.

Please Note.
Herbert's mother was recorded in the birth register as Eose Harriet SMITH.
This was an index error and should have been Rose Harriet SMITH.

Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria. Reg #1066.

Thanks Tonkin, I also hear that William Armstrong Harrison left Rose and remarried, he was a bigamist and as far as I know the family never heard from him again. It is possible he went to Western or South Australia after Melbourne.

The only William Armstrong HARRISON I can find died in Concord, New South Wales in 1942, aged 48 years. Would have been born about 1894. If this is the same William he would have been about 19 or 20 years old when he married Rose SMITH in 1915.

There are lots of deaths and marriages for a William A HARRISON, but when the second given name is not recorded it's hard to tell if you have the right one.

Have also put a few details together on your BLACKSELL lines for you.
See BLACKSELL Charles married Martha MUNN 1881.
This is the family of Alice BLACKSELL married to David SINCLAIR in 1911.

May be of some help to you.
