Thanks for this amondg.

John seems to be the son of Benjamin and his wife Susan baptised 11 Apr 1809.  John's wife Susanna was formerly Hubbard and they married 28 Mar 1833.

When I get some time I will need to revisit the Laird family.

Not sure if this is worth considering but here goes.

Going back to at least the 1200s some Scots nobles also held lands in England from King Edward of England, so there is a possibility of an interchange of personnel.  I would imagine that when Scotland kicked the English out, Scots nobles with lands in England would be faced with losing either their Scottish lands or the English lands, any that chose to lose their Scottish land in favour of keeping the English ones would no doubt have taken people with them back to England.
Concentrating currently on:
Essex: Card, Harris, Stowell, Theobald/Tibbles & Turner.
Norfolk: Beale, Cork & Dalton.
Yorkshire: Oswald Sturdy birth/baptism c1708, Oswald where the devil are you?

John Laird age 77 was buried 30 March 1854 at All Saints Kings Lynn of Windsor Road.
His birth date would be 1777.

There is also a John Laird age 54 buried 7 August 1863 of Union Street, accidentally killed by the Lynn Hunstanton Railway on 3 August 1863. This unfortunate event probably made the papers and may give relatives names.

Also Susanna Laird age 54 died 27 August 1863 of injuries caused by Hunstanton railway accident 3 August 1863.

There is a copy of the newspaper report headline Hunstanton Line Crash 1863

Thanks for that information ... sad story indeed.

I am wondering if William, John (1777) father (married 1760s) was the brother of the older Benjamin that can be seen in the Death Index ?

I have sketched out a tree with William & Benjamin as the oldest Generation, but no obvious way of seeing if they were brothers.

"My cousin had a theory that the Scottish name suddenly appeared in Norfolk about the time that Bonny Prince Charlie's Army retreated north from England - maybe a deserter ? Nice thought haha !"

I have read that Queen Victoria made it possible for Scots to come down to England and farm, which is why there have been quite a number of Scots surnames in Essex going back to Queen Victoria's reign, no doubt it applied to other counties.

Quite a few Scots came from Scotland to tenant Lord Petres estates in Essex at that era.
