In Reply to: Re: HARLEY of TURVEY, BEDS, UK by Rick Harley of 662

Hi there,

If you look on a map you will see that Turvey is only about 15 - 20 miles from Broom.

There are 24 HARLEY folk on the 1881 census in Bedfordshire, almost all are in Turvey. Perhaps an ancestor is listed there!

I think I got most of my Harley data from the local history collection in Bedford library - but it is such a long time ago (before folk did genealogy on the PC!!!) that I can't remember of the top of my head!

My connection is that my husband's grandmother was Sarah Ann HARLEY, b 1896 in Northampton, daughter of Thomas Charles Harley who was born in Turvey c 1845. TC was the son of William bc 1810 in Turvey, and so on.

If you establish a Turvey link let me know!
