This is excessive. Contact either your harp store or Lyon and Healy directly.
I had 11 strings break on a new harp in a 5 month period and the manufacturer ended up changing the type (and tension) of the strings in the worst offending area. They were too close to their natural breaking point.
Are you using gut the whole way up? My second octave is the highest I’ve gone in gut and it breaks the most, so I got a nylon second octave to replace it and will begin changing the octave once my spare gut supply runs low enough.
