Hello Bodham. My great great great grandfather is a Newby, documented in various places as a master mariner. The family lived in Deal, Kent, throughout most of the 1800's and I'm wondering if the Newby's you have found could be their ancestors in Norfolk? Capt Robert H Newby was (I believe) a master mariner from around 1820 and commanded various vessels of the infamous South Sea Company, including the "Mary" (wrecked off Tasmania circa 1845), the Helen Denny and Pusey Hall amongst others. He was killed at sea as a passenger on a fellow captain's ship (the Wellington) around July of 1875 when the vessel struck an iceberg. I wonder if there is a connection with the 'Norfolk Line' you mention?
Hello Nibbler
Can e-mail you family tree if you send me your e-mail.
Tried it here but to big to post it.
All the best

Have a look at
click on Start search NOAH
In search box you can put in surname or town/village etc.
 Tick the box on the left which one you want.
eg. Probate, Books and Trade Directories
& away you go.
Probates: any i find of interest i open the thumb nail up & right click
save image as
i put it on desktop so i can read them.
If you stay online to long reading them, you get time out.
You can save these & it does not cost you anything.

Have a look at the dir's also plus the churches. Keep you going for a while

I also access Norfolk Record Office
& scroll down to NORCAT
open that up put in the surname or town/village loads there but remember you have to pay for Norfolk records Will's etc.
I got most of my Wills from them at reasonal cost.

Family chest is another one.
