    The quite by accident finds are quite often the best finds.

    Why do such good 'finds' always involve places where none of my lot came from :sceptical:

    Thanks for the link - I do have quite a lot of Norfolk ancestors so have bookmarked the site to look through later.

    I've been checking out Norfolk bmd's.. Now I am more confused. I thought my 2x gr, grandmother's maiden name of Blogg was fairly uncommon. Ha! Not in Norfolk, it isn't. I knew her parents were Thomas and Sarah?.. Found out Sarah's maiden name was Peck and Thomas' parents have the very uncommon ( tongue in cheek) names of William and Mary. Of course. So do half the other Bloggs! I think she is Mary Wiston/Weston, but not sure... will continue on the weekend..must get to bed, but I just wanted to thank mugsy for the head's up!!

    He may or may not be related to you, but here's a famous Blogg from Cromer:

    Thank you, Arthur! I haven't done a lot on the Blogg family yet and what I have done, I have gone back, not forward. My 2X gr. grandmother, Martha, was born early 1823 or late 1822, baptized early 1823 so Henry could be a nephew or gr. nephew of her. I did a brief skim over the article and printed it off to read and digest later. I hope he is one of mine... I haven't many interesting people ...it's fun to have someone to add some colour to the tree.

    @arthurk ... Sadly, I don't believe he is one of mine unless it is several generations back. I would be proud to say I was related to him, though! What a humble man and so sad he lost both his children when they were young. I followed back in his family to look for a connection and all I find are fishermen. He was illegitimate but raised by a step-father, but 3 more generations of Bloggs back are all born in Cormer and all fishermen. Mine seem to have stayed around Foulsham ...this family line stems from Felbrigg. Not too far, I know, but I can't get back further than mid 1700's to see if there's a connection.
    Thank you again for a wonderful read and I will keep it on file, just in case!!
