The 1861 census has Harriet as "house keeper" to George Fisher
whom it seems is the father of of her children.
William, George, Lucy(georgina, Susanna, Emma and Harriet are all given the second forename of Fisher
and Harriet their mother is described as 'single woman'.
Given George Fisher is single in 1851 it is not clear why they had not married
