/ information about Ellen Harris
Mary Goldsmith 12 Jan 2014
We are doing some research into the life of our great grandmother Ellen Harris who was born in Faversham in 1870-71. After leaving school she went into service as a nursery maid with a family, possibly on the Isle of Thanet.
We know that in 1887 she had a baby girl named Alice Eleanor Maud Harris (our grandmother). We have no further news of her until late 1889 when she married John James Reader and moved to Broadstairs, where she had more children.
We would be grateful to hear from any Harris family descendants who might be able to fill in the gaps in Ellen's story.
