English newpaper reports via Aus!!

Leeds, born Hull
If it's not too much trouble would some kind person in Aus have a look in the Norfolk, England, newspapers for me.

I am trying to find out anything to do with an Edward Lambert born abt 1750, possibly in East Harling. He married Hannah Cullum possibly in the same village, where they both died, Edward in 1830 (80) and Hannah in 1826 (75).
They had children Edward born in Brettenham, then Richard 1786, Hannah 1788, Francis 1790 in Forncett St Peter, and possibly William 1792 in Forncett. I can't find confirmation of William's birth or that his parents were Edward and Hannah, but this was the only Lamberts in Forncett at that time.

I'll have a look Dave.

Only the Bury & Norwich Post from 1801.

Can't find any reference to Edward. Several references to Forncett but not in relation to a Lambert.

Lots and lots of William Lamberts baptised in Norfolk in FreeReg and although it says Forncet is complete no sign of a baptism for a William around 1792 in Forncett or any other Norfolk parish. The genuki page says the Norfolk FHS will do a look up for free for a single person if rough date and a parish is supplied.

Newspaper references to several William Lamberts including a 1842 marriage to a Mary Ann Dawson.

Not much joy so far Dave. I'll look again in the morning.

Hi Dave
thanks very much for your time

I have been through the parish regs but William seems to have been missed, unless he was born somewhere else but 1851 census has him born in Forncett, living in Kenninghall
I have all the rest of Williams details, its his dad Edward I want to find to get a bit further back in time

I'll have another look today. There might be something other than the Bury & Norwich Post. Something outside the Gale Collection.

All I can see so far is an Edward in Southwark and nothing in Norfolk.
