Family Connections in Little Hadham 14 Years, 10 Months ago  
Having just retired, I'm starting a genealogy project by documenting material which another family member has already traced back as far as the baptism of my Gt. Gt. Gt. Gt. Grandfather; Samuel Harris in St. Celia's Church in 1756. There are also parish register records of his marriage to Elizabeth Collison and descendants' marriages to other family names of Wrench and Stains.... all in St' Cecilia's Church.

My branch of the Harris family moved from Little Hadham area to London ca. 1850 but I was wondering if there is anyone in the locality who believes or knows they are descended from Harris, Wrench, Stains or Collison families living in the area between 1750 & 1850 or even earlier.

Many thanks for taking the trouble to read this. I intend to re-visit and spend more time in The Hadhams soon in any case as my last visit was only a fleeting one soon after I learnt that I had roots in Little Hadham - which I found all the more fascinating when I considered the countless times I must have overflown the area during the last 30 years as a frequent business flyer from Stansted.

I'll be delighted to hear from anyone who can share any information with me.

Thanks & Kind Regards,
Alan Harris

Alan, I have just seen your message in the Guestbook. I lived in the village as a boy and spent many hours recording memories of the 1900`s -1920` from the older residents. I have info on a few Harris`s including old Harry Harris (b 1852) who laid rough around the village at the start of the last century. As a boy he was given 16 lashes for putting a cat into the mill-stone at the village windmill! A messy old business!
I have one or two old photo`s and quite a lot more about the Harris family from "Teddy" Harris (born 1831) onwards if you want to contact me.
