Diary of Alfred HARRIS (General)

by unknown, Saturday, November 06, 2010, 11:47 (2928 days ago)

Some years ago the dairy of Alfred HARRIS (born 15 December 1839) who lived at Whitecroft was made available on the internet and I saved a copy of this. I believe it is no longer available and I was wondering if it would be of interest to the Forum. I found it very useful as it referred to my ancestor William TOOZE. It is not indexed and not in strictly chronological order, but it is a fascinating look at his life and times. There is also a photo of him. There at 21 pdf's and the whole file is about 19MB.

Diary of Alfred HARRIS

I too saw the Journal of Alfred Harris several years ago; and because my family came from Whitecroft, and because it was written in no particular order, for my own use only I typed up the whole thing in a table and sorted by date. Quite a task! I found several mentions of my family and the 'goings on' in the village were 'delightful'. I found the grocery price lists were particularly interesting.
