I haven't found a baptism in Norfolk for him. There is a baptism in Suffolk which I used at one time, but the census says Norfolk.

Hi Amanda I was hoping to find him in 1841 or his son Stephen. Will have to dig a bit further, I guess it would say not born in county if he was in London. Not much help. G.P

N K, Norfolk = Not Known

so no idea if it might have been on the boundary of Norfolk and Suffolk.

1841 census, neither he nor Sarah were born in county:

Name Jeremiah Abbott
Age 50
Estimated Birth Year abt 1791
Gender Male
Civil parish Bethnal Green
Hundred Ossulstone (Tower Division)
County/Island Middlesex
Country England
Registration district Bethnal Green
Sub-registration district Green
Piece 692
Book 4
Folio 18
Page number 3
Household Members
Name Age
Jeremiah Abbott 50
Sarah Abbott 50
William Abbott 15
James Abbott 12
Sarah Abbott 10
Richard Abbott 8
Stephen Abbott 6

He was a Hawker, and the one I found in Suffolk was this one:

First name(s) Jeremiah
Last name Abbott
Birth year 1795
Baptism year 1795
Baptism date 26 May 1795
Parish Westerfield, St Mary
Place Westerfield
Relationship Son
Father's first name(s) Jeremiah
Mothers first name(s) Grace
Notes Born 7 Nov 1794
County Suffolk
Country England
Source Suffolk Baptism Index (part 3)
Entry number 57
Record set Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911
Category Birth, Marriage, Death & Parish Records
Subcategory Births & baptisms
Collections from Great Britain

The problem is Westerfield is near Ipswich, which isn't on the Norfolk Suffolk boarder. A witness at Jeremiah and Sarah's wedding in 1828 was a John Abbott, I'm assuming a relative. Jeremiah was a batchelor at their wedding.
