Frank Harman of Cottage Hill was born on 6th July 1851. He was a son of John Harman and Rhoda Martin. He was a well to-do master mason and builder who was very well known in the Rotherfield district. Amongst his projects were Rotherfield school, the brickyard chimneys at Jarvis Brook and on one occasion he did some interior stonework at Wadhurst Hall. At that time he lived at Cottage Hill. He married Doris Moon, the daughter of John Moon (deceased), on 4th April 1872 in the parish church St. Denys at Rotherfield around 1892.

Their first born child was Owen Thomas born 2nd February 1872. Rhoda Eliza was the eldest daughter born on 1st July 1875 at Town Row. Rotherfield. Doris who was baptized on 9th December 1877 at St. Denys was buried at Rotherfield just six months old. Annie was born at Town Row on the 26th March 1881. Walter, the next child, was born at Packhams Hill on 31st August 1883. Herbert was born at Town Row, Rotherfield on 12th October 1885. Frederick Edwin, the next son was born at Packhams Hill on 12th November 1887. Luther was the next child to be born and that was on 24th March 1890. Frank Herbert born on 11th January 1880. James Sydney was the youngest son and was born on 3rd December 1892. Elsie was born on 22nd December 1895 at Packhams Hill. They had ten children.

Frank Harman and Doris suffered a tragedy of having three daughters suffering from tuberculosis and being nursed at home. Firstly Doris suffered death by tuberculosis. She died at the young age 0f 18 years of age and was buried at Rotherfield on 21st March 1896. Annie who was born at Town Row died at the age at 18 years of tuberculosis and was buried at Rotherfield on 30th March 1899. Rhoda Eliza died at the young age of 24 years, unmarried, of tuberculosis and was buried at Rotherfield on 6th April 1900. Thus in the space of four years, Frank and Doris saw three of their daughters die of the same disease.

Frank and Doris ran a public house at Belle Mead, a large house at Packhams Hill in Rotherfield. The venture wasn't very successful and he lost his money.

Frank was buried on 2nd February 1925 at Rotherfield age 75.

Doris died two years after on the 24th Augusy 1927 at Rotherfield age 75.
