Cann Norfolk
« on: Wednesday 20 October 10 11:12 BST (UK) »
I have a long time (well 6 years ) interest in the Cann name mainly Norfolk and I am on a budget of nil so use free sites etc and also beg help.
I want to try and link as many Canns as I can together,is this what a 1 name study is all about?
My Cann name connected to Bell/King/Hewett/Pegg/Mountain/Watling/Adams/Buxton/Reeve/Patrick/Godfrey/Hudson/Burton/Hatton/Chaplin/George and many many many others.
A lot of the names are through Marriage etc.
Quite a bit of confusion in my tree ,changed names and hard to follow through census records etc.
Also could Canell become Cann later on in generations.
Could Hipper be Skipper at any time?
Anyone researching Canns of Norfolk on a big Scale that may be willing to offer me info and visa versa from me too?
Hope I'm posting this in right area as I do worry about posting in wrong place etc,I do try my best to get things right.
Regards to you all.

Hi, Moira,
Might seem a bit of a long shot, but..........

I have a stray "CANT".....

She is Martha CANT from BULMER, b1755, d1782

Nothing too interesting there, until I read the rest of your post.... Martha is a direct line descendant of mine, and joins my line by marriage to a Thomas RAYMOND.

I don't know if any of this rings any bells, but I thought I would give you a shout as looking at your Surnames list, her descendants fed into my tree which includes the names ADAMS, SKIPPER and HATTON...

Worth a try,
Steve

Hi thanks for your reply to a very old post. It is interesting as Adams is in my direct line with Skipper also and Hatton I did think was a possible married partner to one of my Cann males.
Can we pm each other on here to talk further ?
