Checking the map again I see that the Tunstall I thought you referred to is probably in Suffolk as it stands at the junction of the b1078 and b1069, miles away from Norfolk.
I would certainly think there could be a connection between these Lawn families. Buxton was baptised in February, 1759. His parents were John and Mary Lawn nee Curtis. I will have to check through the paperwork to find out the names of the rest of the children born to them. My own research has been mainly connected with Buxton and his children. We do know that Buxton's sister married a member of the Layton family who were prominent in the area. Buxton, himself, was in the corn trade for some time and wrote a book in 1800/01 about the inconsistences within the corn trade. He was , at one time, baker to the Duke of York in Bath. It could be that your William could have been an older brother or possibly a cousin.
Certainly worth following up.
