massive brickwall


Active member

I am hoping someone may be able to help re my brickwall. I have tried everything and saturated websites etc. I think I may have to think outside the square but first I will see what others say. Apologies if I am a bit longwinded.
I am looking for a birth for a Joseph KIRBY. I have everything else on him but cannot find a birth with parents. Joseph was born in 1791 so the 1841 census says in Norfolk England. He married Sarah HEADEN/IN in 1809 5th July in Walsoken Norfolk. He died in 1844 December and was buried 25th Nov. Mileham Norfolk. Joseph was a national school master. He had the following children from 1811 through to 1823. I did find two more that might be his in 1838 and 1840. In order from 1811:
Henry, John, William, Sarah, Elizabeth (all baptised 6th May 1827, Southey Norfolk). Not the last two who were Mary and William. I am now thinking was he really born in Norfolk, was he born in a workhouse, was his mother a solo parent. Is the answer staring me in the face and I cant see it lol
Thank you for any help.
