From on Fri, 20 Jul 2007

Hello Elizabeth,
My name is Kevin Harbrow one of 9, yes 9 children of the late Arthur James and Mum ( who played a very important part ) Betty Ellen Neil. We decend from Ezekiel via Albert James, Arthur James then us lot. Albert and Henry who we knew as George came to NZ and lived near Dunedin.
In 1983 I was manager of KFC in New Plymouth and was lucky to be in the store when a lady named Yvonne Day came in. My picture ( Manager ) was on the wall and she being related inquired if I was there.
From that I started searching back and because of cost my Eldest Brother Allen took up the task. He has developed our family tree site and its under pandorasbox.co.nz worth a look if any Harbrows are interested. Anyway check out that site if you wish, its still being updated but Allen is going at a great rate.

Cheers From Kevin John Harbrow - see the Harbrow family tree on several pages.


Frederick Harding

From on Thu, 10 Mar 2005

Hello Elizabeth - and a warm welcome from Bermuda to you
I came across a page on your site that interests me, in that as you can see from my name, I am a HARDING. The Fred Harding you mention is one of 13 children of DERISLEY HARDING. I am descended from Fred's brother - William - who unlike Fred and 3 of his brothers did not immigrate to Australia, but elected to stay in the UK.
I am not clear what your interest is in the family (hence my email).
By the way, some of the information I have on the Australian branch of the family differs to your info.
Kind regards
Martin C Harding
