Note on Husband: Edmund Harrington HEARD

At present, there is yet another HEARD mystery.

At his marriage, Edmund says that his father was Henry HEARD.

This may be so, and we may be on the wrong track with him.

However, thus far there is no birth registered for him in the UK.

It is interesting to say the least that he has the middle name Harrington. This name - Harrington-Heard, was used by James Bickford Heard Snr at one point. A rather unusual combination, I believe, if not unique.

Also,the Christian name of Lottwhich Harrington's first wife, Christina Nugent, was Edmund. Another co-incidence.

Since obtaining the marriage certificate of Heard to Lily Brooks, we have not found any mention of an Edmund Heard with a father Henry Heard in the 1901 or 1911 census.
