One such marriage was brought to my attention by a contact who told me her grandfather, Harry Dunlop Wareham, born in Perth, Scotland in 1875 and who died in Queensland, Australia in 1962, wrote in letters and a diary that he found it funny that he was called "Harry Wareham" and that he had a cousin called "Wareham Harry". I subsequently found three inter marriages over the generations between the Wareham and the Harry families which we know about ...... and there may be more.
Seven years later, Margaret's brother, George William Wareham, married one of Edward's sisters, Jessie Deveraux Harry. According to a contact, George had been educated at Eton and the Sorbonne in Paris. By May 1883, they had emigrated to Taranaki, New Zealand and their first child had been born.
You will notice that the first of these unions involved an Edward Wareham Harry. We initially wondered where he got his middle name from. Nothing has been completely proven yet, but there is evidence that William of Ilfracombe's aunt, Hannah Wareham, married a William Harry in 1811 and it was their grandson who had the name Wareham as his middle name.
And finally, if having a Wareham Harry and a Harry Wareham in your family isn't enough, I wondered if anyone with a surname Harry had called their son "Harry" so that he would be Harry Harry. This may sound unlikely but there were in fact four Harry Harrys born between 1873 and 1875 !
