My great grandmother Harriet was born to Thomas and Emily in Barking, Essex on 17th January 1878 and baptised on 22nd February in St. Margaret's Church.
In 1881 she is living at No 3 Park Terrace, Fisher Street, Barking with her parents, maternal grandparents, an aunt, an uncle and two siblings.

Harriet married George Mundy on 24th June 1899 at St Mary the Virgin, Great Ilford, Essex.
The family had two children by 1901 and lived in Grove Place, Barking with 3 lodgers.
They are still living in Grove Place 10 years later and now have 5 children, including my maternal grandmother, Clara.
