Norland House
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 17:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

The 1851 census shows my 3rd gt grandmother (Susan Brown nee Hallsey)'s birthplace as Norland House, Essex.

I can't find any mention of this place on the internet, I just wondered if anyone was familiar with the place name at all?  She married in 1843 in Orsett before moving to Kent.  I would like to find a birth for her.

Many thanks

In 1861 it seems to say that Susan was born in Stanford le Hope, or something very much resembling it (Camberwell, piece 383 folio 148 page 12)

It may refer to Northlands in Stanford le Hope.
See attached map (scroll down to to see Stanford le Hope)
Potters Farm where the family were in the 1842 census is just to the south

Thank you so much, you're all stars.

I have spent so much time looking for this family on the 1861 census - I guess the transcriber had a hard time deciphering the handwriting! 

The birth place for Susan's husband James Brown (full name John James Brown) has been transcribed as Pmoted.  Looks a bit like Prinsted to me - I don't suppose that means anything to anyone?  The 1871 census just says he was born in Essex, no town given and I haven't found him him 1851 (wasn't with his wife and family).

Thank you for the baptism info Sue, can I ask where you found that? I would like to see if I can find out more, was it from the SEAX website?

Thank you Mark, that map is really interesting.

Thanks again, I haven't had much experience with Essex research so just learning all the place names.
