About Andrew Harrison http://hindskw.cts.com/KennethHinds/1792.html

Notes :

first marriage 1669-04-22 to Elizabeth Palmer, child John -- other children from this page -- notes from same source: Ancestry fairly well documented in Cripplegate circumstantial evidence of neighbors and friends in VA compared to Cripplegate ENG were used to conclude that Andrew who died 1718 in Essex Co., VA was in fact the son of Andrew and Margaret Barber of Cripplegate. This is in conflict with Worth S. Ray but seems quite plausible.

Andrew had patents on Golden Vale Creek, St. Mary's Parish, Essex Co. VA as early as 1684. He supposedly was the brother of Judge James Harrison of Old Rappahannock Co. In 1704 he was granted land southwest of Golden Vale on the Mattaponi River in King and Queen Co. VA. He died testate in 1718 and named four children in his will.

Dan Harrison writes on 4/17/1999:

I was poking around on the online FamilySearch Ancestral File and came across the following information on Andrew Harrison, Sr. (Andrew is in the Harrison Repository at this page )

It lists Eleanor Ellitt as the wife of Andrew Harrison, Sr.; born abt. 1642 in New Kent, VA.

It lists Eleanor's parents as Samuel Ellitt and Elizabeth ?

It lists Andrew Harrison, Sr.'s father as Andrew Richard Harrison, born abt 1611 in London, England; died 1667 in London, England; Married Aug 28, 1636 in St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, England to Margaret Barber.

There is also an entry listing Andrew Harrison, Sr.'s father as Richard Harrison. Both entries list Margaret Barber as Andrew's mother.

Margaret Barber born abt. 1615 St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, England; died 1676/1677 in London, England.
