Taken from Great Saxham parish register.

Harriet 21st June 1846
George 2nd August 1846 (I did study these two entries carefully but this definitely appears to be correct  ??? )
Margaret Twenty-something November 1848
Arthur 4 August 1850
Henry 20 February 1853
Elijah 21st June 1857 bn 13th May

Also spotted this burial - not sure if he's yours though - Timothy Sharpe buried 13th March 1843 age 82

   There's a lot of greats whats the death date , there's a Abraham J  Sharpe aged 74 in the parish
  of Risby in the 1871 census on page 17 and the rest of family on 18, he gave Little Saxham as
  place od birth, if that's any use it will some thing to work on.

Abraham Julian Sharp
17961881
BIRTH ABT 1796 Suffolk, England
DEATH 8 FEBRUARY 1881 Suffolk, United Kingdom

it is sharp without the e but i have noticed that it is possible his father may well have had the "e" does anyone know if there was rhyme or reason for using the "e"

   Hi Barry
   The reason is the clergy at the time when looking for your Ancestry back then (E) got added
   for no good reason, were the church person was educated who wrote in the parish reg, I have
   all ways took the E with a pinch of salt, its not till the BMD's got written out officially and they
   become legal documents and one recorded them for official purposes, and the parish register
   took a step back, all so as the people started to migrate about and education was getting its
   nose into village life ( Whats your name;A J Sharp; is that with an E or with out, do not know),
   so if the registrar added an E it tended to stay, I have quite a few early folk who's name has
   got distorted by dialect, think of the clergy man was educated at Cambridge and the local
   family has all ways lived in Saxham area and there broad Suffolk dialect no education explanes
   a lot, I have Aldertons in the area and there name is Ollerton in some parishes, so as I say E
   forget it for back then keep an open mind how many ways can you spell SHARP'E you will be
   surprised.      mick

Thank you Mick

Very much appreciated..   

I am new at this so in one sence i am very lucky that one of my farthers cousins has done some serious amount of work on that side of the tree, i suspect the downside will be that getting new facts will be much harder.

However i do have the other side of my tree my mums side and that is looking to be very interesting very early on.

    Hi Barry
      there's so many avenues to follow if you get down say 8 generations you are looking at about
   800/1000 family members, I have been mucking around with this for 40 odd years and at times
   gets very frustrating, no two parish records are the same, some are clearly written others, well,
   the best are giving age's dates family names etc, as I say earlier keep a very open mind and
   remember what was written was hit and miss, local accents and dialog, I have one that has
   14 different ways of being recorded in the 1600/1700's registers, have fun...mick
