Charles Johnson married Eliza Digby in 10-11-1877 in Downham Market, Norfolk.
Her parents were Frederick Digby, son of William Digby &
Aves/Avis Earle, and her mother's name was Emma b. aprx 1836
in Litchan, Norfolk.
I was hoping to find Emma's maiden name, and possibly
the name of her parents and siblings.

I have found the marriage registry entry in the Downham registers on the Family Search site here:

Her father was Robert Preston a Carpenter.

This Robert is a Carpenter but there is no Emma unless she is Emily. Caroline was a witness at her wedding.
