Hello im currently struggling finding some information on my great grandfather George Henry Nobbs who used to live in Foulsham ,Norfolk. He married Keziah Esther Stanton and had 3 children with her. One of which was my grandad Alan George Nobbs. Just finding it hard looking for his parents and none of my family really know who his parents were either. Any help would be appreciated. For anyone wanting to know also, he used to live in London House in Foulsham.
