Capt George Frederick Harvey: An Overview

The information I have about George comes from the following sources:

1. Information supplied to me by Carla Woodworth Lynas and based on the 'Original Genealogical Collections, by the late Lieut. Col. Robert John Harvey of Thorpe'.  This is mentioned in a publication called 'Walter Rye, Memoir Bibliography and Catalogue of of his Norfolk Manuscripts in the Norwich Public Libraries' by Geo. A. Stephen published in 1929? by the Public Libraries Committee, Norwich.  Original documents in the Norfolk Archives.


George was in the 18th Light Dragoons.  His obituary was published in the Gentlemans Magazine page 676, 18 April 1847.  Honora's obituary was published in the Gentlemans Magazine page 549, 1856.
