Edward Harris and Eva Gertrude Hawkins

Married 1896

Husband:   Edward Harris



Wife:   Eva Gertrude Hawkins

Born: 30-Aug-1874
Father: John Hawkins
Mother: Marion Marshall

Aged 6 at the time of the 1881 census, and recorded as having been born in Portsea.

Aged 16 at the time of the 1891 census, and still living with her parents. At this time her occupation is recorded as Pupil Teacher (?).

At the time of the 1901 census, aged 26, she was seemingly (still?) living with her parents, now named Eva Harris. Her two children were also living with her.

Both records tie in very well with an Eva Gertrude Hawkins recorded in the GRO index for Oct/Nov/Dec 1874 as having been born in the district of Portsea (volume 2b page 451).

In fact, I have a copy of Eva's birth certificate which confirms this is the correct entry.

Additionally, a marriage record appears in the GRO indices Jul/Aug/Sep 1896 (Portsea volume 2b page 912), on the same page as that for an Edward Harris.

All in all a fairly complete set of records, that all fit together very nicely.

Male  Child 1:   Reginald G Harris

Born: 1897

Aged 3 at the time of the 1901 census. His place of birth appears to be something like Malta, but the second word is unreadable.

Male  Child 2:   Percy F Harris

Born: 1899

Aged 1 at the time of the 1901 census. His place of birth is entered as Hants Southsea.
