 Notes on Mrs Harrold attached



1. Mary was the third of 12 children born to Henry Harding and Lora - who just happens to be the sister of Frederick JJH.  This makes Mary both the wife and a niece of Frederick.

2. Margot Wheaton [Granddaughter of Jessie Harrold (Aston)] has kindly provided the following additional information.

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Harrold was the eldest daughter of Frederick and Mary; she married Sydney Joseph Knight, a son of Mary and George Mitchell Knight (see elsewhere), Newbury’s Mayor in 1888.  Sydney was a solicitor in Newbury and was very prominent in the church. 

 After Sydney and Lizzie married in 1901 they went to South Africa returning home to Newbury on several occasions with their 4 children
