NOTE: Well known members of the HARPER family lived in Bridlington where Ceres and Edwin HARPER had Bands that performed at the Royal Hall.  I understand that Edwin had a daughter Edwina [ later called Jayne ] she attended Bridlington School and became a well known Nurse in York. Ceres is buried at the rear of Sewerby Church. I have not yet linked them into the exact family lines. There is a picture of Ceres on our Photo Page
