HARRISON BRIGGS (1762-?) AND HIS DESCENDANTS

Harrison BRIGGS

Harrison Briggs(311) was the fifth of the twelve children of John Briggs (11) and Mary Rawdon(12) who are listed in the IGI and in the church records of the Bowl Alley Lane Presbyterian Chapel, Hull. He was born on 22 Jan 1762 and baptised on 01 Feb 1762. The IGI, based on parish records, indicates that he married Elizabeth BROUGH(370) on 16 Dec 1784 at Hessle by Hull, and the FHL film no. (919427, not checked) points to this being based on Bishop's Transcripts for the parish church (All Saints). There is a photograph of this church available via the GENUKI website. The IGI lists seven children of this marriage, based on the baptismal record of St Mary's church, Kingston upon Hull (FHL film 990838, which I have not checked). These baptisms therefore took place in a Church of England church, and not within the presbyterian community from which Harrison sprang.
