024 - 4 Anthony 358 of Lessingham and N Walsham

Anthony 358 of Lessingham

Anthony was baptised in 1690/91 in Alby, not N Walsham as we originally thought and we see from the baptisms of his children that he married Elizabeth 359 though we can’t find a marriage entry. Their children were baptised in Lessingham and North Walsham:

Anthony and Elizabeth appear to have moved to N Walsham with both of the buried there.

Richard 342 and Elizabeth Goodwin of Lessingham & N Walsham

Richard married Elizabeth 359 Goodwin in East Ruston in 1738. Their children were baptised in North Walsham:

After Mary died in 1782 Richard married Mary Olley 1790 in N Walsham

This is as far down the tree as we know for Richard’s family.

John 360 & Margaret Colby in Norwich

John appears to have married Margaret Colby in Norwich in 1742. We have the baptism of:

And we believe they also had a son:

We can’t find his baptism, but an Anthony witnesses Charles’s marriage in 1771 Thorpe Episcopi, Norwich. When you look at all the Anthony Gottses you can see that he could only be this one and may be Anthony’s brother or cousin.

North Walsham figures frequently in events around this area. As the local market town you can how busy the registers are compared to other parishes.
