Elizabeth Sophia Greathead née Worville
     Bessie writes a letter to all her children; the envelope is addressed to Harold and is to be opened after her death. She states that she is losing her eyesight and she knows her end is near. She thanks them for their care and love and leaves Daisy in charge of her possessions. She wishes to see Connie and Bessie married; and refers to a "Clandestine relationship" that Bessie has as it appears that Elizabeth Sophia hasn't seen the man of her daughter Bessie's choice but hopes that it will be all right before she passes away. She then bids them farewell in life and death.

     Edward Harris was born on 1 January 1777 in Uddens, Wimborne, Dorset, England, Edward was the third son.1,2 He was the son of John Harris and Mary Greathead.2 Attended Eton.3 Edward's Godmother was his Aunt Sarah.4 He married Mary Elizabeth Glyn, daughter of Richard Carr Glyn, on 14 August 1811 in St George's, Hanover Square, London, England, after a marriage licence was issued on 12 August 1811. Her father Richard witnessed the ceremony.5,6,7,8 I believe the Mr and Mrs Greathed mentioned in the book "The Waterloo Ball" by Sir William Fraser (London 1897) attending the famous ball given by the Duke of Richmond on 15 June 1815 in Brussels are Edward and Mary Greathed. Wellington and most of the army top brass attended the ball. Whilst the ball was in full swing news arrived confirming that Napoleon and his army were advancing into Belgium, which led to the battle of Waterloo three days later. Legend has it that Wellington and his chiefs of staff hurried away straight to the British Army, many not having time to change out of their dancing shoes before engaging with the enemy. The event is commemorated in Byron's poem, "The Eve of Waterloo". Since Edward was a civilian he did not attend the battle.9,10 Edward died on 1 December 1840 in Paris, France, aged 63 His death was registered in Marylebone register office.11,6,12,13 Edward was buried in 1840 in Kensal Green Cemetery, Kensington, London, England.14 The will of Edward was proved on 21 September 1841 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. He had written his will in February 1830 stating that he was late of Uddens in the County of Dorset, now living in Paris, and appointed his wife Mary Elizabeth as his sole executrix. He said that his wife should be the guardian of their children until such time as their eldest son Edward attain the age of twenty-one when they together should assume the joint guardianship. He left all his all his estate and effects to his wife.15 There is a monument to Edward and Mary in Hampreston Church.13
