On This Day - HUDSON, PORTER and HARLEY

14 Nov 1831 (179 years ago) - John HUDSON was born at Barton-le-Willows, North Yorkshire, England. He was a son of William HUDSON and Christiana MATTHEW, and the husband of Hannah WRIGHTSON. [Great-granduncle]

18 Nov 1766 (244 years ago) - James PORTER and Catherine HARLEY were married at Battersea, Surrey, England. James was a son of George PORTER, shoemaker of Douglas in Scotland. I do not know his mother's name. [Great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, Webster line]

If you are researching these families, I will gladly provide full details of my sources, which include parish registers and private family papers. My thanks to Joe Hudson and Michael Flynn for their help.

The idea for this weekly feature came from Linda McCauley's Documenting the Details. I use On This Day, a companion product for The Master Genealogist, to generate a list of events for the week.
