096 - Alby, Roughton and Felbrigg

John 605 Gotts and Margaret Lawrence: their children in Roughton:

NB The records found in English Marriages in Family Search and Find My Past show events happening in Felthorpe, however this is a long way away and when you check the original images you can find they are from the Felbrigg registers. Whether this is a systematic error across all Felbrigg records is not known, though it has been reported to FamilySearch.

Alby, Roughton and Felbrigg

We have a small tree starting with John 606 baptised in Alby 1632 son of George.

He married Margaret 605 Lawrence of Roughton in N Walsham 1655. They had family in Roughton and they both died in Felbrigg in 1694 and 1701/2 respectively.

When you look at the parishes, Alby to Felbrigg is only 5 miles with 5 parishes on the way! The main road between them passes through Roughton now and probably did so back then. This tree will probably fit into a bigger tree, but as yet we don’t have the connections. There are several parishes nearby where Gottses have lived, including Aylmerton, Gresham, Northrepps, Thurgarton, so there are plenty of possibilities.
