I would be pleased to compare notes with anyone who can trace their history to Jacob Norris, born c 1848, Road / Rode / Roade, near Frome, Somerset, and particularly to his son Herbert George Norris who was born c 1872 in Charlton, Nr Frome, Somerset and whose family lived in the Lambeth / Southwark / Bermondsey area.

Thank You

Colin
