Post by Kingmaker on Sat Jul 17, 2010 2:26 pm

Well I can trace ours back to OldBuckenham, Norfolk, UK 1758 , William Crook.

The 1851 census as well shows his son http://www.reocities.com/PicketFence/1704/MertonHouseholds1851.html, we are near the bottom. After this they moved to Hull where I was born some time between 1851 and 1900

The Kingmakers ancestors were not too far away from me. Old Buckenham,Norfolk.Twenty miles outside Norwich. In those days farming country.Old Buckenham in very near Attelborough.Situated just off the main A11, road from Norwich to London.There would have been very little around there at those times.Farming, and thats it. Even now Old Buckenham is very small.Attlebororgh has only, in the last decade opened up a betting shop and a supermarket.Sainsburys, i believe.

Yes he was a farm Labourer and moved to Merton also nearby. Then between 1860 and 1900 they popped up in Hull.

Just trying to find out more Williams wifes maiden name was Briggs and there is a lot of them in Old Buckenham...

Strange they went to Hull from Norfolk?Hull, is such a long way from Norfolk. Specially in those times.Was Hull still a major port in those days? presumably yes.Perhaps the farm game was not paying. So went to work on the docks?Good luck with your search.

I will pull the rolls and see... One my relatives took the time to place all this information on a large roll out (much like a map). I believe the information is actually on there.

BTW... Briggs is a very popular name here in this area. I have taught around 7 of the chidlren from that family over the past 10 years or so. Lot's of them!

I'm an American, so I'm pure bred mongrel.

Like 1 out of 6 in Europe I can trace back to Charlemagne on one line.

I'm related to most of the notable early dutch settlers of New York city.

I have a Moroccan admiral and the first prostitute of new york in my lineage as well. :-)
