................Walter Harrs 1829 - 1891
Very little is known about Wiiliam and Betsy's son Walter Harris. We can find no record of his baptism. He is listed on the 1841 census with his parents at Artichoke Court Grnady Place Lambeth.

The 1851 census records Walter Harris as being resident at the St Martins in the Fields Workhouse in central London. The above census extract shows he is a stone mason by trade.His brother James Banfield Moore Harris was also listed with his wife at the St Martins Workhouse so we assume as both Walter and James were mason they were worling locally.

By 1861 the census shows that Walter Harris is now married, yet there are no records of this marriage being registered. The 1861 census records Walter and his wife Elizabeth living at 1 St Albans St Lambeth.

The 1871 census shows only Elizabeth and her children living in Northfleet Kent with no mention of her husband Walter.

The 1881 census shows both Walter and Elizabeth living back in Southwark at 3 Pitt Court Walter was now a stonemason aged 52.

Walter and Elizabeth are recorded as having at least 10 children but most are presumed to have died in infancy. Charles (1852); Walter Henry Landrells 1859) 25 Stanley St Brompton; Frederick (1860); Florence Emily (1862) St Albans St; George William (1864) White Hart Square; Alfred Ernest (1865); Alice (1868); Louisa (1870); Henry (1875) and Eliza (1878).

Nothing more is known on this branch of the family other than Walter Harris died aged 62 in Camberwell.
