View Full Version : FAMILY PHOTOS OF HARMERS + Bible for WILLIAM AND SARAH ANN WALLIS
06-02-2005, 8:33 AM
I have inherited an 1860s onwards photograph album of the HARMER family - ancestors of Thomas HARMER Draper of Cambridge however after doing some preliminary research of the censuses have located them back into Mattishall, Norfolk in the mid 19th century. I would like to offer this album to proven descendants only of this family free except for postage. Thomas's only unmarried daughter died in the 1960s and I would like to see it go to a good home.
The bible is also connected to this family through the maternal line and was given to this couple on their wedding day by Sarahs brother Charles R. Player.

Have you contacted the secretary of the Harmer Family Association?
Gill was able to help me with my distant connection to a Harmer in Norfolk. The Association has loads of info, certificates, trees etc and may be able to find or know of a proven descendant of this Thomas Harmer.
My grandfather was Harry George Harmer of Ilford Essex. My Mother has the family tree traced back to 1300's . I will check and see if there is a connection.

I posted to the Harmer association website back in 2004 and contacted Cambridge Family history society but have had no replies (Thought there may be contacts in Cambridge still) . I could not locate an actual e-mail address on the website so have not contacted anyone directly. Do you have an e-mail address for contact.

You should get a reply from the secretary of the Harmer Family Association
I know that Gill has been busy with pressing family matters but hopefully she has more time now. Gill is a very nice helpful lady. If you don't get a reply in a week or so let me know and I will see if I can contact somebody else in the association. (I am a member so have details for the main committee members)
