Good Morning,

Your information is most valuable for me. I am in NZ, researching this Harris family for my grandson's genealogy. He is (through my son-in-law) the 4x Great-grandson of Samuel Gregory HARRIS and Mary BROWN.

His lineage is through Henry Edgecombe HARRIS, Ernest William Gregory HARRIS, Ruby Mildred HARRIS, who married Edward Francis HAMMONDS, Ross Edward HAMMONDS and my son-in-law Craig Edward Charles HAMMONDS.

I would therefore be interested in sharing information. I have substantial HAMMONDS data researched by one of the family, if of interest.

This, on Samuel Gregory HARRIS, may or may not be known to you: http://www.thewhittingtons.org.nz/theriches/sgharris.html

Kind regards

Dear Robert, Hi. You are welcome to my genealogy information that is of interest to you.

Yes I was aware of The Whittingtons website incorporating the Riches family as descendants of the Harris/Brown etc.

If you post your HAMMONDS ancestry on here no doubt you will find more descendants. Keep in mind to protect the privacy of the living.

Best wishes.
