Wow, that is so fast.
As always i am so impressed with the wonderful folks a genes.

If the James in this family is the one that I think it is, James names one of his daughters Harriet.

Yes, certain now that it is Noy. See the 1851 census and also his parent's marriage which I've posted above.

Ah, I also hadn't registered the / ahead of Oliver's name.
I think the name is Noy, comparing the N to others on the page it looks identical
There are quite a few Noy families in Suffolk mostly I think in Ipswich

This is the connection to Harvey. This is the marriage of the child's parents:-

Registration district: Blything
County: Suffolk
Year of registration: 1838
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Spouse's last name: Not available before 1912
Volume no: 13
Page no: 915

MarriageFinder: George Noy married one of the following people:

CUSHION, Hannah
HARVEY, Harriet<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
WRIGHT, James

Perhaps Harriet is a sister to Oliver Harvey???

This appears to be the same George in the 1851 census:-

I think it's Noy - the "y" is the same as that on "Amey" on the next page, the "No" is the same as in "Noble" further up the same page.

This is a possible birth for George although this birth should only have him at age 1 on the 1841 census:-

Name: NOY, George
Registration district: Blything
County: Suffolk
Year of registration: 1839
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 13
Page no: 346

There is a single / next to Oliver Harvey which would indicate that the 2 year old is in a separate household but in the same building as the Harvey's. I'm not convinced that the name is Noy either although Findmypast also transcribes it as Geo Noy.

I've looked at this census entry several times, obviously not hard enough because I have only just realised that the entry below Oliver Harvey age 35 in an entry for what looks like Noy G, age two years. It is this last entry that I am confused about. The double // on this entry indicates that it belongs to the Harvey family.
