Interested in this "royal lineage" bit...

Have established that my Gt Gt Gt G'mother's married name was Harriet Symons/Simmons, living St Austell 1871/81 census, born Camborne about 1834. Two of her children, John and Annie, have the middle name Vivian, leading me to wonder if her maiden name was Vivian. A search on the IGI gives me Harriet Vivian, baptised 30 July 1836 daughter of Johnson and Elizabeth Vivian. Further search on that batch no gives me 13 baptisms for this family from 1789 - 1836, presumably two generations.

All very tentative stuff, done late last night with on line sources, so nothing is confirmed, but you can see why I sat up and took note when I saw the words "royal lineage"!!!

Do you have any information on Harriet Vivian that could tie her to Harriet Symons/Simmons?
