Biography

Harriet was born in 1841 and baptised at Rattlesden on 3 April 1842.[1][2]

In the 1861 census, Harriet was working as a dairy maid for Fanny Ward of Drinkstone Hall, Drinkstone, Suffolk. (Also working there as a groom, was Henry Punchard of Rattlesden - brother of future husband, George.)[3]

She married George Punchard in 1862.[4]
