Searching for birth of John Woods born c 1834-36,possibly Suffolk/Norfolk. Parents possibly John and Mary. John jnr married Esther Allum on 25 March 1858 at St Cuthberts, Thetford (Suffolk/Norfolk). John & Esther came to Australia in Aug. 1858. Johns parents lived at Walsham and Esthers parents (Thomas & Ann) lived at Norfolk at this time. Any help greatly appreciated.:)

Hi

I found John on the 1851 census aged 16, born in Walsham, Suffolk, living as a visitor in Feltwell in Norfolk to William & Mary Pleasener. William was born in Walsham.

I cannot yet find his baptism on the IGI but I did find a submitted entry which say he was born c1840 in Walsham, son of John & Mary and died 23 December 1882. Does the death date ring any bells?

Hi Kerry

I have just checked that IGI submitted entry and it does say 23 October 1882.

I have found him on the 1841 census at Walsham Le Willows aged 5 with parents John and Mary Woods. They were living in Church Street. John Snr is an Ag Lab and they have 3 other children Mary aged 7, Susan aged 5 and Robert aged 2. The parents John is 30 and Mary is 29.
