Re: Family History Research

Nigel, Thank you for this additional information. I'm now pretty certain this is not my NORMAN family as they were of very modest means and earliest known ancestor was born in Cambridgeshire in 1793. My John and Elizabeth NORMAN did not move to Sydenham until after their marriage in Middlesex in 182...

Re: Family History Research

I was unable to find John Norman's gravestone in St Bartholomews Churchyard in 2016 nor was John H. more recently. However, I have just found this entry entry online courtesy of Find A Grave https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=norman&GSfn=john&GSby=1790&GSbyrel=in&GSdy=1852&GSdyre...

Re: Family History Research

Dear Michael, Thank you for taking the time to look into my enquiry and your interesting reply. There is a good chance that this 1852 burial is my John NORMAN since his wife Elizabeth is recorded as a widow come the 1861 Census for Sydenham. I suppose she could also be buried in the same churchyard....
