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.
Regards
Rob

Hello

Found the marriage of Noah HARPER and Bucolinus BILNEY 7 May 1839 St Edmunds, Downham Market. Grooms fathers name John HARPER bricklayer. Brides fathers name John BILNEY Labourer.

Although I dont know that this is related but I found the following baptism Noah HARPER 24 Sep 1809 Holy Trinity, Stow Bardolph( I think Stow is only a few miles from Downham). Fathers name John Mothers name Margaret.

Good Luck
Su

Hi Rob,
I have just spotted this old note re Noah Harper and Bucolinus Bilney.
I presume that it’s long sorted and that your hair is safe.
If you have any great insights into the Harper side of the tree, I would love to hear from you. It would be good to compare notes anyway.

Regards

Bruce Harper
