Norton, St Andrew, is covered by the Suffolk Burial Index but there are no West burials recorded.

The other parish that could be a possibility is nearby Blo'Norton, Norfolk, not far from Harling but the PRs are available online & there is no bapt of a Harriet West around that time.

Can you tell us a bit more about Harriet please - did she marry?  If so who did she marry & where?

I think thinks may be the problem, she was born c1807 in 1851 she says Harling and 1851 as Norton, Suffolk.  She marry's in Thorpe Abbotts 24/05/1831 to Thomas Flatman, he was born c1798 in Wortham, Suffolk, bapt 18/03/1798.
Thank you,
Phil

The marriage entry states witnesses were Robert WEST, Hannah WEST & Thos FINCH - highly likely the West's were related have you tried tracking down Robert on CRs as he could be father/brother. 

Robert WEST married Frances Stebens?/Stebbings  7 Nov 1833 - witnesses James WEST, Elizabeth ? & Thomas FINCH.  Thorpe Abbotts

Hannah WEST married Lott EDWARDS 13 Sep 1834 Thorpe Abbotts. Witness James WEST, Betsey S...., & Thos FINCH

If you can trace any of these other WESTs on the CR & see where they say they were born it may help

Thank you very much for the marriage details, i only had the dates for these.

I have looked at the siblings for Harriet West and i found the first three Hannah (no date) Elizabeth 1809 and Robert 1810 all born Nth Lopham, with Harriet in between says 1807 Harling/Norton then they have Ann bapt 1817, Emily & Elizabeth 1818 and George bapt 1821 all four baptised in Thorpe Abbotts, Norfolk.

The parents of these children are William West born c1756 Norfolk? and Mary Gathercole/Atkins born c1778 North Lopham married 12 July 1808 North Lopham. this was Mary's second marriage first one also in North Lopham to William Atkins (no date)

Having checked these baptisms i think it could now be possible that Harriet was maybe bapt also in North Lopham and not Harling/Norton as she says.

My info was taken from the actual Thorpe Abbotts PRs via the familysearch.org website - The Yokels links take you to them.  Shame the North Lopham PRs are not available to view also.

North Lopham is very close to Harling perhaps there were family links to the parish.

Good luck Phil

Just a thought have you tried looking at Blo Norton, which is in Norfolk, but close to East Harling, the Lophams and Wortham. Just a possibility. I live in a mentioned village so noticed the post in my potterings.
