Hi Wendy,Yes we are connected via the Healey Family. Elizabeth b. 1838 was my grt,grt grandmother. She married William Horritt in 1860 and James William Healey Horritt, my grt grandfather was born in 1861.Her father James was born in 1814, as you say, and was married to Ruth. His father, Phineas was born in 1790 and was married to Betty. His father Thomas was born in 1754 and was married to Ann. His father was James married to Betty. It is interesting that Elizabeth b. 1838 also named one of her sons Phineas.
William Horritt, b. 1839,his mother was Mary b.1819 and she married a Robert Healey in 1844 but I don't know if he was William's father but could explain why William's son was named James William Healey Horritt.I dont' know how Robert fits in the Healey family. Any other info. you have would be most welcome. My e-mail address is DAVEHORRITT@aol.com
Thanks for replying. Regards,David Horritt
