Just wondered if anybody could help with my brickwall.
Noah Harper on the 1851 census has British subject as his place of birth-on the 1861 census he has Downham Market as his place of birth-I have a range of birth dates between 1810 and 1820 but have found no baptism for him in Norfolk-He married a Bucolinus Bilney c1837-her name changes on the census returns from Rebecca to Elizabeth and back to Rebecca again.
I believe Noahs father was John Harper,bricklayer
Any help would be appreciated as I have not got much hair left.
