The villages of Wattisfield, Norton, Walsham le Willows and Pakenham are situated between Diss and Bury St Edmunds some 40 plus miles from Carbrooke, Norfolk ......

Records then take us to the Watton area of Norfolk where Richard and John Tolman settled for reasons unknown at this time. Although Richard is recorded at first as living in Thompson, by the year 1803 he had moved to Carbrooke where John was living.
Both Richard and John Tolman are the origin of all the Tolman families from the Watton area of Norfolk.

* Did Samuel Tolman (1757) or a son Samuel go to live in the Kings Lynn area as there is a baptism record of a Samuel Tolman in Wiggenhall in 1826 and 1828 the son of Samuel Tolman and his wife Mary. There is also a burial record at West Lynn in 1843 of a Samuel Tolman aged 64 which would give a birth date of 1779.
