I'm returning to this old thread in the hope that someone can help me take these lines further back. Having now established the marriage of Robert Dunton and Frances Lake nee Grimes, I can't find any birth/baptism registration for either of them. Both are living in Brancaster, 1841-71.Details again:
Robert Dunton:
1841, born Brancaster abt. 1802.
No sign of him or family in 1851.
1861, born Holkham, abt. 1806
1871, born Brancaster, abt. 1804.
Frances Grimes:
1861, born Brancaster, abt. 1801.
1871, born Brancaster, abt. 1797.

Any help gratefully received.
