FS has the name as HAMSTON and no pob for James or Sarah.

1851 has Hemwall for James but that I read that one as Hempnall.

Thanks,

Re: 1861 pob

I think it says Topcroft. Hempnall is about 2km from Topcroft and on the Genuki Norfolk list of parishes there is something called the Hempnall group of churches which includes Topcroft.

Also the Norfok Baptism Transcription has the Parish down for his baptism as Hempnall and the Hempnall group of Churches.

Re: 1861 pob

Thanks Emeltee.

I was looking at 'I' and not at 'T' but that looks a good fit.

Yes, I thought I at first but if you look at the whole page there is a family called Tyes near the bottom. It was the way the T was written that made me look for somewhere beginning T and Topcroft seemd to be the best fit.
