Research Note

This census record places the family of Joseph Harrison and Ellen Ball on Pool Street on 3 April 1881. This house was within a block of the Honeysuckle Inn. As such the census record is one of many pieces of information leading us to conclude that the Henry Harrison recorded here was indeed the eventual owner of the Honeysuckle Inn and the father of Henry Harold Harrison.
