Samuel Gotts/Bramble 1496 of Oulton

Samuel is the earliest known person in this tree. He was born in 1801 in Oulton to Susannah Bramble. It is not yet established who Samuel’s father was, but presumably was a Mr Gotts. The name Bramble crops up in several of the records for Samuel & his children.

Barbara Adams has considered that his father may have been a LUKE GOTTS, sometime resident in Aylsham and Heydon who died about the time that Samuel started using the Gotts name.
