My Great Great Grandparents were William and Eve (nee Barnett) Harris.

John Gould found the marriage announcement in the Jewish Chronicle dated 23rd November 1860.  John is the great great Grandson of Eve’s parents (Caroline Lazarus and Abraham Barnett)

Marriage Announcement
On Wednesday the 21st November at the New Synagogue, Gt St Helens by the Rev. Dr Adler, assisted by the father of the bride, Mr William Harris, Esq. of Lima South America to Eve, elder daughter of the Rev. Abraham Barnett, Minister of the New Synagogue, Great St Helens.

William Harris is thought to have been born in Germany, but the marriage announcement says he is from Lima South America, I wonder what the story is behind that…
