i have a couple who married in the 1700s,in the parish register it say's they both come from,

Thorpe market Essex.

they married in Norfolk,now I know there is a Thorpe market in Norfolk but I cannot find a trace of them there.
was there a place in Essex by this name as I cannot find any info on it.

I can only see a town of that name in Norfolk, and nowhere near Essex.
What are the names of the couple who married and the date of the marriage?

Hi,

Could it be Thorpe-Le-Soken?

I don't know what the name means but I did try to add it earlier!

Kind regards

I can find no other reference to this couple other than the marriage in snetterton,

that is why I was trying to find out if they went back to were they came from.only having Thorpe market Essex,hence my posting.
thank you for the info you have posted,this is the couple I am looking for.

martynsue Report 3 Sep 2013 21:28

everyone who has him in there tree say's snetterton,
I have searched the parish record's for him and he is not there,hence why I was going to look at this place in Essex.

If you google Thorpe Market it appears to be a village about 20 miles from Norwich, and just a few miles from Cromer. It's still a good way from Snetterton, but at least it is in Norfolk.

I have been through the parish record's for Thorpe market Norfolk,alas there is no record's for this family.
