Trying to find Flint

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Linda Report 4 Aug 2006 13:52

EDWARD FLINT was my gr gr grandfather.

He was born c 1783. but where ????

I have found him on 1841 and 1851 cencus but it only gives his birthplace as Norfolk.

On the cencus he is living with wife Ann(nee Hovell/Hobbles) at Wheatacre. Norfolk, which is also where he died Jan 1861.
Edward and Ann married at Corton, Suffolk.

They had children MARY-ANN, ROBERTand BENJAMIN

I am hoping one of you may have come across his birth in parish registers in your search for Flint families in Norfolk.

I would be greatful for any help you can give me.
