Looking for her birth and anything else..

There is this birth, but nothing to link it to, also expecting the East Ruston or Yarmouth areas [spouse born East R and marr. Yarmouth].

Person forename Hannah
Person *** F
Father forename James
Father surname SEXTON
Mother forename Mary

Hi Geoff, tough one, her birth year ranges from 1793 to 1802 in all the various census.
She's 90 in 1891 with daughter Maria. Considering her life as a mangle woman, washerwoman, she lived a long time.
Good luck, sorry to be of no help.
I have no access to any content on FS. Don't know what is going on.

All born Norfolk.

Thanks, Steve..

Yeah, a lot going for that one.. 2 problems; as far as I know there is no Thomasine, though an 1816 birth can't be ruled out.. The other is George aged 2y..

My line is their son, George b. 1821.

Ooops, I should have looked more closely.redf)

Thomasine Gotts, is actually Thomas Gotts, c1816. Norfolk.:rolleyes:

He's a son in the 1851 census, a Master Mariner. Mother, Hannah Gott is a Mariners wife.

More chicken scratch.:biggrin:
