Looking to try and connect the generations of my Reeder family, I found on Anc. Cambridge University Alumini for a Robert Reeder s/o Thomas (mercer) entering Caius college 18/5/1680, which fits nicely with 'my' Robert s/o Thomas bap 6/8/1662 in Wells Norfolk. So far so good, but can someone help with the following? Matric. 1680; Scholar, 1680-5; B.A. 1683-4. Ord. deacon (Norwich) Dec. 1684. (Venn, I. 464.) As I read it:- he studied 1680-5 and gained a BA. Ordained deacon Dec 1684 Now in the parish of Whissonsett Norfolk 1690's is a curate, Robert Reeder (who submitted the Archdeacon's Transcripts). How can I find out a) more info and b) if they are one and the same? Also in the PR's for Whissonsett are two children baptised to Robert Reeder by his wife Sarah - Thomas 4/2/1689 and Robert 2/1/1690 - if these are the children of 'curate Robert' I cannot find a marriage to Sarah, this being my original quest. This is the first learned ancestor I have found, and sadly his father's wealth and standing had disappeared long before 1865 when15 year old Hannah Reeder d/o of a blacksmith (my g.grandma) married in London.
