I am researching the Gamble family from Middleton, West Acre, North Runcton area and wondered if any of the Gamble families from around the stow Bardolph area are linked in at all. I know I have at least one relation in my tree from Wimbotsham. If anyone has any of the above information could they please contact me.

My 3rd Great Grandparents, Robert & Elizabeth Sherwood, lived in Stow Bardolph. I am descended from their son, Henry, born 1823 in Wimbotsham. The website has proved very informative and helpful for my family research. Many thanks.

I was born on Stow Hall on 25 Oct 1955 and have been trying to find any photographs of the hall as it was then. My name was Susan Ann Healy and my brother Joseph Maurice Christopher Healy was also born there on 28 Nov 1954. If anyone has any pictures of tha hall as it was then, please let me know. Many thanks. Suzy

Lovely website, Dominic, for a lovely little village.
My Great Great Grandmother, Ann Haines, was baptised in Stow Bardolph Church in 1826 & her family lived in the village, her parents having married there in 1820. Ann married George Green in 1844 & lived on the Ouse Bank until her death in 1911. Her mother, Martlemass Haines (nee Whitehead), and a 12 year old brother was buried in Stow Bardolph churchyard having died from Cholera in 1834.
I would love to hear from anyone who knew or are researching this family or who could tell me more of 19th century life in the village.

Thanks for a great and interesting site. William and Judith COOPER and seven sons left Wimbotsham in 1848 for South Australia. It has been very hard to find out much about their previous life in England and if they left any family behind. Judith was a LANGSFORD/LANGFORD from Terrington St Clement where her and William were married. They are in 1841 cencus but left before 1851 which would have been helpful. thank you again

I am searching for Mann family from Stow Bardolph. I know that Benjamin Mann of Stow Bardolph married Ann Wilson in Wereham in 1806. By 1851 Ann was a widow and back in Wereham - cannot find any trace of Benjamin or Ann in 1841 census. Interested to hear from anyone with Mann connections.

I am researching the RENAUTS of Norfolk
It starts with Samuel Renaut who is buried in the church at stow bardolph.
Would like to find out why he was buried inside the church and what the coat of arms on the grave mean.
I know he worked for Sir Ralph Hare in the late 1600's.
