Default help request

Can anyone decipher the surname in this clipping, please?

Sister- Ellen ?
3 Grocers Court



I know she was originally Ellen Donovan and I have the rest of the Donovan family on the census at the address shown but I can't make out Ellen's married name. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Tim and How. I see the probable Har beginning but I can't see an 'son' ending. I would say 'star' above anything else...
...probably why I can't read what it says and you guys can!!

Ah- now I see 'so' -I still don't see 'n' though...maybe 'sow' ?
I'm looking for Ellen Harrison on the census first though. Thanks!

The 'n' at the end of Ellen is the same shape as the 'n' at the end of the surname (looks like a 'w', thats normal for a trailing 'n').

Harrison, I agree.
