Virtual Trust Talk: Joseph Packwood, The Boy in the Painting
Based in Hampshire, England, Emrys Harries is an experienced family historian with a passion for research and a patient eye for detail.
In a quest to find the next link in his wife’s Bermuda roots, and inspired by John Green’s portrait of a young Joseph Packwood hanging in the parlour at Verdmont, Emrys set out to research the man that he became.
Using a multi-disciplined approach, combining ‘boots on the ground’ genealogy with newspaper archive and internet database searches, Emyrs discovered highly significant information about this extraordinary man and the impact he was to have on future generations of the Packwood family in Bermuda.
Disabled himself through multiple sclerosis, for many years, Emrys has been a director and trustee of British disabled flying charity Aerobility, involved in encouraging and teaching
disabled people to fly light aircraft.
Always keen to visit Bermuda, Emrys and his wife Bunny enjoy staying with relatives on the island as often as they can.
