We are researching the Arrow Family (have seen it spelled Aroe, Arow and Yarrow) from England, specifically the daughter Elizabeth born April 2, 1842. The family immigrated to the US around 1842-43, but have not found the ship record as of yet.
Her parents names are William and Elizabeth, but on the daughter's death certificate her father is listed as H. Arrow. However, we know from a city directory that the father's name was William and not "H". We have been told by librarians that the English often dropped the "H" from their surname so their last name might have been Harrow instead. Does anyone know if this is true?
Any information on this family or the spelling of the last name would be appreciated. We do have Elizabeth Arrow's will and records for her children if anyone would like to share.
