Harriet was born in 1873. She was the daughter of George Punchard and Harriet Stiff/Sparke.[1]

She married Thomas Raynham on the 6th of August 1905 at St Silas, Liverpool.[2]

They had at least 3 children: Mary, Arthur Hermas, and Louisa Harriet.[3]

Research Notes

Stiff/Sparke - Harriet's mother, Harriet (Stiff) Punchard (abt.1841-bef.1915), used both as maiden names when registering her children's births. Her father was Robert Stiff, the illegitimate son of George Sparke. The family seemed to use the surnames interchangeably.
