William Crook. Norfolk.

Hi,

I can trace my family back to William Crook of Old Buckenham, Norfolk, UK in 1758 and his Wife Phoebe/Pheby Crook nee Briggs of same village.

I am trying to go further back if possible

They both died and are buried in Merton, Norfolk UK

Any help much appreciated

Terry

(So far I can find no mention of a Phoebe/Pheby BRIGGS, although there are plenty of Briggs in Old Buckenham, Norfolk, UK)


WILLIAM CROOK

Died: 02 March 1824, Merton, Norfolk, UK

Hope that helps a bit

Re: William Crook

Have you tried variations of Buckingham/Buckenham old and new.

I've found a few 'unconnected' rellies doing that, and I think Buckenham was one of them.

There are a few other members who've got rellies in Norfolk, and are a more knowledgeable than me.
