    I finally found a marriage for my Sarah Honeybun and am now knee-deep in Harrises

    Sarah having married William HARRIS on 4 Sep 1833 in Chard, Somerset, had seven children that I know of ...

    Job (1835-1918), Daniel (1836-?), James (1838-?), John William (1840-?), Samuel (1844-1902), Hannah (1847-1923), and Ruth Susan (1850-1945) all born in Chard

    it's Ruth's children that I am focusing on for now, she's mainly known as Susan btw

    Ruth Susan Harris married Reuben PINNEY in Tatworth, Chard on 22 Oct 1871; on the 1911 census in Bridport, Dorset she claims 9 children, 6 died, 3 still living

    The 3 still living are Annie Harris Pinney (1872-1957), Percy James William Pinney (1875-1947), and Bessie Pinney (1880-unknown)

    Using the GRO online index and baptism records I have:

    1. Annie Harris
    2. Maggie Hannah (Mar 1874- Mar 1875)
    3. Percy James William
    4. Rice Barn (Dec 1877-?
    5. William Bar(r)on (abt 1878-Jun 1878)
    6. Bessie
    7. John William (Sep 1882- Mar 1883)
    8. William or Willie (Mar 1884-Mar 1885)

    Now thinking Rice Barn must be a transcription of some spectacularly bad writing, I guess given the dates he's actually the same child as William Bar(r)on. So I probably only have 7 children here, although it looks a bit like 8.

    The first 3 children are born in Chard, "Rice Barn" was registered in Beaminster RD, William Bar(r)on death registered in Bridport, where subsequent children were also registered.

    I cannot find another 2 children. Pinney often occurs as Penney; Bessie's birth for example is registered as Penny

    Just wondered if anyone else fancies a go ... and Opinions please re: "Rice Barn", should I get the birth cert? or would that be a colossal waste of time

    Curiosity would get the better of me and I would get the certificate.
    It would be interesting to see what it would throw up.

    Percy James William and William Baron were baptised on 15/5/1878 in Bridport,
    source FS on FMP.
    so if William Baron is not Rice Barn, then he had to be born 1876.
    I wonder if Rich(ard) Baron has been mangled on registration, and then they decided to call him William.
    I would think they are one and the same child whatever the name.

    Just wondering if Barn is a phonetic version of the spoken name (with a dialect) of Baron.
