Below are FISHER family goups taken from a search of our local area to Mattishall of Birth , Marriages and Burials .
It could be that in the future as more records are transcribed we can link some these families together.
If anyone has any ideas please let me known.

The villages looked at so far are:
Mattishall: - Mattishall Burgh: - Welborne: - East Tuddenham: - North Tuddenham: Yaxham: Barford: Wramplingham

Starting with below the closest link to Thomas (1750)

Could this be the Thomas below father of Thomas born 1755?

(1798)
1827:
Jan 13 – Marriage at St Andrews Church Hingham – Entry 122
James Fisher of Wramplingham, Bachelor married Elizabeth Pitts a Spinster by Licence - James and Elizabeth both signed
Witness: Sarah Pitts, Elizabeth Pitts and Phily Pitts
James and Elizabeth had children:

[2] Elizabeth Lousia born 1830 at Hardingham
[3] Emma Maria born 1832 at Hardingham
[4] Julia Ann 1834 at Hingham.

The following was very kindly given to me by Jennifer Giles of Perth Western Australia.
Jennifer has researched her husband's family line and consequently done a lot of research on James Fisher and his descendants.
Jennifer has already written a book on James and Hingham Hall which is now out of print. However through her book, the feedback received and further research she is currently working on a second. When this become available I will post a link.
Below is just a brief summery.

James FISHER was born in 1797 in Norfolk and was the owner of Hingham Hall. As a family they moved to Hingham Hall in 1834 having lived at Hardingham Hall which James hired while Hingham Hall was being thoroughly repaired. James was a Gentleman Farmer, cattle dealer and landowner who died in 1835 aged 38 and was buried on the 14/01/1835 at Hingham. James wife was Elizabeth PITTS born 1801 at Wells Somerset. They had four children:

[1] Frederick Robert Fisher (1827 born at Hardingham –1893 at Norwich) who married Mary Phillis Elsy (born Aug 18, 1832 at Hingham and died Nov 01, 1911 at Norwich) and had 11 children: Mary was the daughter of George Elsy at Shopkeepr and Draper of Hingham and Phillis Payne born at Smallbough, Norfolk. Frederick inherited his father's estate and purchased a 1112 acre farm at West Wretham near Thetford where the family was recorded living in the 1851 census. At this time he was employing 23 labourer's. Sometime about 1865-6 Fredrick sold the farm at West Wretham and bought a smaller 480 acre property (Woodhouse Farm) at Old Buckenham where he employed 15 men and 5 boys. He was recorded in the parish records as a 'Gentleman'. Frederick it is believed was hit badly by the Great Depression in 1873 and sustained severe losses. He sold up and subsequently went to London to work rather than be a burden to his family where he drove a Hansom Cab. Frederick returned to his family home at Norwich as he was in poor health and died there on 1 June 1894 aged 66. His wife Mary Phillis Fisher aslo died at Norwich aged 79 in Dec quarter of 1911.

[2] Elizabeth Louisa Fisher (1830 born at Hardingham -1917 at Norwich) who married Samuel Jarrold (1805 born at Dallinghoo, Suffolk -1874 at Norwich) and had 7 children. Samuel was the son of John Jarrold who in 1823 moved from Woodbridge in Suffolk to Norwich and fonded the world famous Jarrold family run printing business and General Store. Their department store on the corner of London Street has grown into a well known Norwich landmark. Samuel and Elizabeth's descendant (Richard Jarrrold) is the present day chairman.

[3] Emma Maria Fisher (1832-1917) who married Henry Pratt Harrison (born 1823 and died 08/12/1898) and had 6 children; Emma and Henry moved to Durban, South Africa.
For more on Henry Pratt Harrison click HERE or more on his Duban home now known as Hingham Nursery HERE

[4] Julia Ann Fisher (born 1834) who married John Fergusson: - John was born in Scotland and in 1861 was recorded as a Land Agent living at West Wretham - Some of their children moved to South Africa and were involved in the setting up of the South African Stock Exchange while some other children moved to New Zealand

After James died in 1835 his wife Elizabeth Fisher was shown to be the owner of Hingham Hall and in 1848 Elizabeth was living at Hall Farm while she tried to sell it. It seems the property did not sell until 1858, apparently to Alfred Muskett. Radical changes were undertaken between 1841 and 1886. In 1944 it was used to billet officers. Unfortunately, the Hall was not looked after and was badly damaged. Therefore, between 1947 and 1955 most of the Hingham Hall building was pulled down with only one wing remaining and this was converted into flats after it was bought by a property developer. In 2000 the remaining wing of Hingham Hall was demolished to make way for a new housing estate. Being the eldest son Frederick inherited James's estate and purchased a farm at West Wretham near Thetford where the family was recorded living in the 1851 census.
It is not clear where Elizabeth Lousia was in 1851 but in 1858 she married Samuel Jarrold where she was recorded in 1861 living at Bracondale, Norwich as shown below. Samuel Jarrold had been widowed in 1857 when his first wife Mary Turner who was born at Old Buckenham died aged 38 at Norwich.
