Harrison Bible

This Bible was submitted by Lesley.

The bible passed to Emanuel's son Harry 8.6.1895 - 4.7.1959 who did not keep it up to date. Harry had an older brother Frederick but little is known of him. Harry had three sons -

Keith 26.6.1920 m Ivy Rees 4.5.1946 (one son, three granddaughters)
Donald 12.8.1927 - 21.9.2000 m Sonia Cockbain 16.11.1927 - 17.3.1993 (one daughter, two granddaughters, one grandson)
Alan 14.7.1931 m Sheila (one son, one daughter, one granddaughter, two grandsons)

The bible has now passed to Keith's son Barry and has been taken to Australia where Barry lives.
Donald's daughter Lesley attempts to keep the family records, so if anyone has anything to add to this about any of the family mentioned, please contact her on
