Finally found it 29 Dec 1809 Henry illegitimate son of Anne ROWELL, born 16 May

still looking for marriage to Maria? after Anne death, but Maria is not a director ancestor -instead Henry Norris Mum is Anne Rowell, became Anne Norris in 1810 and died 1812.

Am now wondering whether Henry was illegitmate when born, but accepted by Father and known by Father surname as there is this record in 1808

25 Sep 1808 Henry Weil illegitimate son of Anne WOODASON, born 5 Jul

NOW FOUND Henry's marriage to Ann Rowell 06/06/1810 in Plumstead, Kent -however she was the sister of Charlotte Rowell, first wife.

The search continues for marriage to Maria and to find Henry Norris married to Ann Eames in 1831 Dogmersfield baptism -year of birth to conclude Mother.

Can anyone help please

Found something which just does not seem possible but anything is possible with marriages I suppose

I have found what I believe to be Henry Norris first marriage to Charlotte Rowell on 05/11/1805 but she dies 1807 age 21 years old.

Now I find a baptism of a Mary Anne, in Odiham with parents Henry and Anne, baptism 15 Feb 1811 Mary Anne dau Henry and Anne NORRIS, born 7 Dec 1810
I then find a death of Anne Norris on 05/08/1812 age 22 years old.

I then find the above baptisms John Norris christened 23/02/1815, Maria Norris 27/12/1816, Martha 17/03/1820 and Sarah 08/08/1821 all with parents listed as Henry and Maria Norris. Maria dies 17/01/1826

and he finally marries Sarah Godfrey 1826 my goodness

Now what I need help with I can not find the marriages to Anne or Maria? and I still can not work out who is Henry Norris's Mother as I do not have a baptism for him.

On family search have found a

John Norris christened 23/02/1815

Maria Norris 27/12/1816

Martha 17/03/1820

Sarah 08/08/1821 all Odiham Father Henry and Mother Maria, but NO Henry Norris -however I believe as named after Father likely first born son

Well I have just established that a Maria Norris died on 17/01/1826, in Odiham, via FMP, this is the correct time and right place

Have you looked for the records that you seek on the site

N.B. Unfortunately the marrying couples father's details were rarely recorded on parish marriage entries.

I have a Henry Norris married to an Ann Eames 24/03/1831 Dogmersfield, Hampshire found on FMP, but it does not give Father name.

I believe he was born approx 1810 and his Father is also Henry Norris. However with the help of others last night established that Father Henry Norris 1784 married again on 26/11/1826 in Windlesham, Surrey to a Sarah Godfrey, so she can not be his Mother.

Now trying to establish who his Mother is, and help would be great
