The Young Father

Was Charles HARRISON only twenty-three years old in 1911?

My first thought was that this is a transcription error, so I turned to the page image.

The transcriber’s failings are inconsequential. Glaisdale for a birthplace would have been better and Francis for Joseph’s middle name but Charles’ offering of his and his wife’s name,and their ages, have been faithfully rendered.

What was distracting Charles when he filled out the form? He should have known he was 33 years old and that Mary’s middle name was “Edmond”, after her second great grandmother Hannah EDMOND.

Charles’ father on the FamilySearch Shared Tree is as yet unmarried, so there is a lot of work to be done on the pedigree.  Charles and Mary are commemorated on this stone in St Oswald’s churchyard with four of their eleven children…
