    Can anyone decipher the surname in this clipping, please?

    Sister- Ellen ?
    3 Grocers Court



    I know she was originally Ellen Donovan and I have the rest of the Donovan family on the census at the address shown but I can't make out Ellen's married name. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

          Thanks Tim and How. I see the probable Har beginning but I can't see an 'son' ending. I would say 'star' above anything else...
          ...probably why I can't read what it says and you guys can!!

              Pretty sure it's 'Harrison'.

                Ah- now I see 'so' -I still don't see 'n' though...maybe 'sow' ?
                I'm looking for Ellen Harrison on the census first though. Thanks!

                  I vote for "Harrison", too.

                    The 'n' at the end of Ellen is the same shape as the 'n' at the end of the surname (looks like a 'w', thats normal for a trailing 'n').

                    Harrison, I agree.

                      Harrisow?

                      If you type a name into Google and it turns up a name then at least one person has that name and it exists.

                        Case closed. Tim is the winner and he never even had to pay an entry fee.
