In Reply to: Re: Greenacres of the Ormsbys, Norfolk, UK by Michael Taylor of 27

Hello again Mike. I'm afraid that I can't find the Charles you mention. However, the Ormesbys were really small hamlets at that time and I wouldn't be surprised if Charles was related to William in some way. There is only 18 years between them (I have William baptised in 1761) so son is probably unlikely in those days, but not impossible of course - nephew perhaps or even brother, but of course all we can do is speculate. I have also accessed the web site you mention and I agree it is excellent, but I don't think it has been updated in a while. Try also the Norfolk Transcription Archive at, and Susan Doyle who is also researching Greenacres in Norfolk. Susan has a fledgling website at, which may help you. I hope we manage to sort this out eventually, but I suspect it will take one or both of us some hard graft at a Norfolk Records Office - perhaps you have done this already - I'm in Berkshire and I haven't ventured up there yet. Best wishes, Jon
