Harrisons Green

B15 Grid reference SP041849

Harrisons Green, Harborne is listed in the 1841 Census, when maltster Benjamin and his family are recorded there. Its name certainly derives from a surname with the addition of green signifiying (common) grazing land. It is now recalled in a streetname.
