Nothing for Harridge on that date, nor for the whole of 1801.
The earliest Harridge reference it comes up with on a keyword search is Dec
I've often believed The Times search facility to be a bit perverse - it is,
after all, scanning a scanned image of a page covered with small, smudgy
printing, then relying on ocr for a match. It's amazing that it works at
all, never mind as well as it does!
There again, someone else may fish it straight out, first shot.
Principle current interests:
THE ASHES (England)
OWEN (Pembs - Orielton)
RUGBY WORLD CUP (England)
