Discussion in 'Norfolk' started by mugwortismy cat, Jun 30, 2018.
Just found this site, quite by accident
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
The same here too!
Thanks for the link - I do have quite a lot of Norfolk ancestors so have bookmarked the site to look through later.
I think I have some way back in Norjolk... need to go and check my tree!
I do also but never heard of Tinstaafl.
That looks interesting. Thank you.
Me too...will check it out!! HAPPY CANADA DAY, SuzyQ!!
Same to you, Heather! Keep cool.
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!!
