Family History of Harnden

15th November 2010

Ian Murphy:

Thanks Diane,
Looks like the cyber censor decided my message needed shortening. [Ed. sorry about that, content must have been longer than the system allowed, will look into fixing this.]
Basically what I had written refered to my embarrasment about claiming to be able to trace back to John and Jane Harnden in Ticehurst.
Compared with what you probably know about them, I can only use the Will of John Harnden of 1836.
Even then I needed to link the fact that the Will said that he was a Mariner.
The Mariner thread seems to be strong in the Harnden family, best smmed up for me in the inlaid slipware spirit flask inscribed Henry Harnden, 1844.

Amazingly the surviving Harndens in Australia are keen spend a large part of their time on the water also.

If you would like a copy of the 1836 Will please contact me at [email protected]

I would really appreciate any other information or stories that you may have regards the Maritime link.

Cheers

Ian Murphy:

Thanks John

Sorry for the delay we have been away. Looks like they are the same family.

I can trace Henry Colin Harnden back 4 generations to John Harnden, born 1755 Ticehurst Kent. He married Jane Fry.

Living descendants are in Melbourne Australia.

Cheers
