File Information:

 

William Horn 1755-1843 (88 years) - Son of John Horn & Elizabeth ????

Note:- records show that there was no e’ in the name at this time, this could have been down to the interpretation of the transcriber, as William could not read or write. This theory is derived from the fact that at the age of 36 when William married Mary Tennent he could only make his mark. However it is noted that by the time his daughter Ann was born the e’ was added.

Born:- precise date unknown; 1755, East Dereham: Norfolk but we assume it was 1755 as he was recorded as being 88 at his death.

Elizabeth Carr age 66 of Dereham

Elizabeth (1794) married on Dec 9th 1830 to Joseph Carr a bachelor at St Nicholas Church East Dereham. From all accounts they never had children. In 1841 they were living at Back Street, Elizabeth is recorded as a School-mistress although this may not be true as at the time of her marriage she could not sign her name. Joseph is a ‘Jobber’. Living with them is her father William Horn (1755) now a widower age 85 and a young boy called George Girling age 5, described as a ‘Nurse Child’ (equivalent to a foster child today). George was born on May 16th 1836 the illegitimate son on Rebecca Girling. He was baptised on Feb 11th 1844. It appears Elizabeth and Joseph could have adopted George as in 1851 he was still with them, now an apprentice Shoe-maker. Joseph was now a Pauper late Gardener. Joseph died in 1854 and Elizabeth died in 1861 age 66 and was buried on Jan 1st at St Nicholas Churchyard with her husband. George moved to Norwich and worked as a shoe-maker he married an Elizabeth – and had several children.
