John CONGRAM married Agnes DODD in the Swimbridge, Devon, Cathedral. I would like to think that the celebrant was John Russell. Parson John "Jack" Russell, Vicar of Swimbridge in Devon, acquired his first terrier while studying at Oxford and it is from here that the Jack Russell dog breed originated.
John's daughter Louisa CONGRAM married James William HARRISON at Donnybrook, Victoria. Their son James George HARRISON was my paternal grandfather. He married Clara Ann CRAWFORD at Narrandera NSW.
Perhaps this is where I get my love for dogs, however anyone with CONGRAM connections, please contact me.
