Jeremiah Ives Harvey: An Overview

The information I have about Jeremiah 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.


Jeremiah was a merchant.  He was made a freeman of Norwich in 1766, Sherriff for Norwich in 1779 and Mayor 1783-1784.



If anyone can add more information about Jeremiah I would be very pleased to hear from you.
