Hi Susie When you have the time I am looking for 3 births Henry Norris 1847 St George Southwark Thomas Norris 1849 St George George Norris 1857 Bradford upon Avon Many thanks Shona

Hi Susie, I don't think that is the right Joseph Williams, as I found a Joseph Frances Williams marriage record to a Lucy Hannah Barrett. Just cant find any other record for that Joseph Frances Williams. He must have died before the turn of the century. If we could find a birth record for any of their three children, that could give us a clue. We need some record between 1871(their marriage) and his death. Where can we find birth records for Christchurch,Southwark? Sam/Martin

Hi Susie Thanks for the information the john is definately his father and i've heard that john had a brother called Charles so i would say that's his uncle. I've just realised that I did not put down birth year - sorry Charles Norfolk was born in 1845/46 Kind Regards
