Note on Wife: Eliza COWELL

William's birth certificate names his mother as Eliza Shortland, previously Harman, formerly Cowell. This enabled us to track down her marriage to the unfortunate Thomas Harman, married at 23, dead at 24.

 

2nd wife of John Shortland (b. 1831)

 

Frank's RC baptismal records in Cork give his mother (probably step-mother) as Eliza Olive (Prior?). Must look at this again.
