Harriet was born in 1848 at Hobart.2 She was the daughter of Thomas Roberts and Sarah Young. Harriet lived in January 1865 at 32 Lennox Street, in Richmond.3

She married Charles Oaten, son of John Oaten and Charlotte Amelia Pellett, at the Registry Office on Saturday, 25 February 1865 at the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy.4,5,6 She presumably lived with her spouse Charles at at 126 Gertrude Street in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in November 1865. This house was a 2 room house.7 Harriet and Charles Oaten, aged 22 became the parents of Charles Henry Oaten on Monday, 22 January 1866 at at 124 Gertrude Street in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy.8,9

The Oaten family moved frequently between rented houses in Fitzroy in the late 1860's and early 1870's. In January 1867 they were in a two-room brick house at 75 St. David Street, before moving on to 16 Alma Street (a three-room brick house) and then next door at number 14 - back to a two room house. Both of these houses were owned by George Butler who lived at number 20.10,11,12

On circa 1870 her son George died at the approximate age of 4.

Charles had a number of jobs after he was married. He was initially a clerk in November 1865, then described himself as a carrier in 1867, a chimneysweep in 1869, then a drayman in 1872 (which he was to remain for the rest of his working life).7,10,11,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29

The young Oaten family moved to a four room wooden house in Victoria Parade in 1871. This house was just off the street, close to the corner of Young Street.

In 1871 they moved to Valiant Street in the neighbouring suburb of East Collingwood for a short while then to Hunter Street Collingwood. It was only when the family moved to Sackville Street in Collingwood in 1873 that they put down roots and stayed for 15 years.13,30,14,31,32,33,34,35,15,36,16,37,17,38,18,39,19,20,21,40

They initially lived in a wooden house on Sackville Street, right on the corner of Smith Street This house was rented from John Tulloch who lived next door. However, in about 1875 they moved two doors up to a house initially rented from a Miss Scott, and then from Thomas Latham, a clerk who briefly lived next door.21,20,18,16,31
