Letter to the Editor

from Pat Mason, Trustee and volunteer Researcher of the Norfolk Family History Society


I am currently transcribing the nonconformist microfilms for Norfolk held at the PRO. As you are probably aware, the register book was sometimes seen as the property of the minister and sometimes ended up travelling with him. The minister of the King’s Lynn, Broad Street Independent Church seems to have taken the register with him to Berkshire for a time before returning to King’s Lynn. The entries from the Church register baptisms 1745-1837 (PRO ref RG4/2467) may be of interest to your members. They include families with the surnames: Bishop, Darval, Fowlder, Hardon, Harris, Leach, Lee, Nibbs, Ranse, Searl, Sharp and Winch. Most of the baptisms took place at Maidenhead.
