My Harris family came from Broomfield, Essex, England. They left Gravesend, London for New Zealand in 1839 arriving Petone, Wellington, New Zealand in 1840. Abraham Harris and his wife Sophia were both born in 1810. Abraham in Broomfield Son of Edward Harris & Ann Turner Sophia Harris - It was once thought she was from Terling in Essex. It is now believed she is from Battle in Sussex. It is believed that Abraham & Sophia were cousins.
