Research Note

This census record shows Joseph and Ellen Harrison living with seven children on Byrom Street in Wigan. Byrom Street no longer exists but was located one block west of Pool Street where the Honeysuckle Inn is located. The record suggests that the Harrison family moved from Blackrod to Wigan sometime between 1860 when Henry was born and 1862 63 when Maria was born.
