Spouse Father: THOMAS HARMAN 5/2 (1824-1866)
Spouse Mother: ANN MARTIN (1819-1898)
Spouse Notes:
THOMAS & ANN'S DAUGHTER KATE.
KATE HARMAN & SAMUEL BELLINGHAM.
KATE HARMAN MARRIED THE SON OF HER FATHER'S SISTER SARAH.
THIS SAMUEL BELLINGHAM  WHO WAS HER COUSIN. BOTH THEIR GRANDPARENTS  JAMES & MARIAH.
JAMES & MARIAH DAUGHTER SARAH HARMAN MARRIED SAMUEL BELLINGHAM AND IT IS THEIR SON SAMUEL   THAT MARRIED KATE DAUGHTER OF THOMAS & ANN HARMAN .
IN 1899 EIGHTEEN MONTHS AFTER THE DEATH OF HER MOTHER KATE MARRIED SAMUEL BELLINGHAM ON 31ST AUGUST 1899.
THIS WAS A STRANGE MARRIAGE IN SOME WAYS THE REASON IS AS FOLLOWS:-
KATE WAS AGED 40 AT TIME OF MARRIAGE AND SAMUEL WAS AGED 56.IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THIS WAS A MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE TO BOTH PARTIES NOW IN THE LATER STAGES OF LIFE GIVING COMPANIONSHIP IN THEIR LATER YEARS.
THE BELLINGHAM'S WERE EDUCATED PEOPLE IN FACT JESSE BELLINGHAM WAS THE REGISTER OF BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES AND IT IS HIS NAME THAT APPEARS ON THE DEATH CERTIFICATES  THAT KATE'S MOTHER ANN OBTAINED FOR JOHN AND RHODA'S CHILDREN IN 1872.
I WOULD THINK THAT KATE'S STORY OF HER LIFE WOULD BE INTERESTING TINGED WITH SADNESS.
FIRSTLY SHE LOST HER FATHER THOMAS AT A VERY EARLY AGE OF EIGHT. SECONDLY IN ALL ,PROBABILITY AS SERVANT FROM THE AGE OF APPROXIMATELY 14 TO HER MARRIAGE AT 40.
A TWENTY SEVEN YEAR PERIOD OF SERVITUDE. AT LEAST.
LASTLY SHE LOOKED AFTER AND LIVED WITH HER MOTHER ANN UP TO HER DEATH. IT WAS ONLY THEN THAT KATE HER SELF MARRIED.
THERE IS NO DOUBT LIKE HER MOTHER KATE WAS A CARING PERSON AND DEVOTED TO THE FAMILY. WITH THE SELF SACRIFICE SHE HAD DEVOTED MOST OF HER YEARS TO HER MOTHER AND BROTHERS.
THOUGH BOTH PARTIES OF THE MARRIAGE WERE NOT IN THEIR YOUTH, AND THOUGH KATE WAS AGE 41 WHEN SHE MARRIED. SAMUEL. KATE GAVE BIRTH TO A BOY. AT THE AGE OF FORTY-FOUR.
THE BOY GEORGE, FREDERICK BELLINGHAM WAS BORN ON THE 10TH APRIL 1903 AND WAS NAMED BY SAMUEL & KATE AFTER HER BROTHERS GEORGE & FREDERICK ,HARMAN.
KATE WAS TO LIVE ANOTHER 38 YEARS WHICH IT IS HOPED THAT WERE HAPPY ONES TO MAKE UP FOR THE HEARTACHE SUFFERED DURING HER LIFE.
SAMUEL HER HUSBAND DIED AND WAS BURIED 15 MAY 1926.AFTER 26 YEARS OF MARRIAGE TO HIS COUSIN KATE.
KATE EVENTUALLY DIED AT THE GRAND AGE OF 79 AND WAS BURIED AT ROTHERFIELD ON 20TH MAY 1937.
