Margaret 12
Francis 9
Sarah 7
Robert 5

all b in county
HO107 776 21 23 41

and this looks a possible for Wiliam
1841
High St Blakeney
Elizth Williamson 60
Robert Foy 20 ag lab
Wm Murrell 15 ag lab
John Garrett ag lab
all b in county
HO107 776 21 12 19

a few doors away is John Murrell 45 fisherman and wife Ann (they may connect up somewhere

Possibly parents marriage
30 July 1821
Blakeney
Francis Murrell single
Margaret Maria Cushing

The BT's on family search with image have William Baxter Murrell and his brother John baptized the
same day, however the parish records have the following:
William Baxter Murrell bap. 5 October 1823 **born 4 October 1823, son of Francis Murrell and Margaret Maria Cushin.
He appears to have been baptized twice or omitted from the BT's of 1823 and added in 1826.

His siblings listed in parish records
Elizabeth bap 3 December 1821 **born 2nd December
William Baxter as above
John bap 29 January 1826
Francis bap 23 June 1831
Margaret bap. 23 June 1831
Sarah Anne bap 31 August 1834
Robert bap. 6 August 1837 **born 29 May 1835
Mary Ann bap. 6 August 1837 ** born 3 June 1837
Maria bap. 22 March 1840

As I said earlier the Witnesses to the 1821 Marriage were William/Sarah Cushing

I think this is likely Margaret Marias Brother and Sister;

SARAH Cushing married Matthew WATERSON 21 Jan 1825
1861 Census she is born c 1797 Blakeney

From FreeREG it looks like Her Father William was Buried 4 Nov 1819 age 69 (1750) and Mother Mary 17 Jan 1829 age 73 (1756)
