John Hearn
« on: Saturday 14 July 18 11:04 BST (UK) »
Good morning everyone, I wonder if someone can help me out?
I have come to a brick wall and I am trying to trace my 5 times great Grandfather his surname will be Hearn.  His son my 4 x great grandfather was John Hearn DOB: @1771 Born in Suffolk? he died on the 27 April 1840 in Worlingworth Suffolk... John's wife was Mary Durrant DOB:@1775 born: Kessingland Suffolk and she died in 1858 Worlingworth Suffolk.
Any information on John's father will be much appreciated.
Regards
Keith Hearn

Annette I have checked my docs and have him born @1771 and death 1840 and if my maths is wrong if he died in 1840 that makes him 69 ...which is right.. ....what I cannot find is his father ...any help would be great

John's age is 70 on his gravestone at Worlingworth but I wouldn't disregard the GRO's 65, indicating birth c.1775.

Dunwich deanery indexes published by the Suffolk FHS include:

1799 John HEARN of Yoxford m. Mary DURRANT at Middleton cum Fordley

1799, 1801 & 1803 John, William & Robert sons of John HEARN & Mary late DURRANT bapt. Middleton cum Fordley

and a variant:

1808 William HURREN m. Dinah ROUS at Yoxford

1808 William son of William HEARN & Dinah late ROUS bapt. Yoxford

1775 John son of John & Sarah HURREN bapt. Kelsale

Another John HURREN (son of Thomas & Mary) was baptized at Knodishall in 1776; he was probably a pauper living at Saxtead in 1851.

An otherwise extensive Ancestry tree (GOVER) suggests that the destiny of the Kelsale John (bapt. 1775) is unknown, so it may be worth looking into his family:

1772 John HURREN m. Sarah SCALES at Kelsale

1773 Lydia dtr of John & Sarah HURRIN bapt. Kelsale

1777 Robert son of John & Sarah HURREN bapt. Kelsale

There were other children, possibly not Sarah's, if the father was a cordwainer and farmer, John HURREN the elder, who was buried at Kelsale in 1813 aged 77 (born c.1736). Images of his will (unfortunately very faint in places) can be downloaded from Norfolk Sources. Several relatives are named: sister Ann WOOLNOUGH; wife Mary HURREN; sons William HURREN of Leiston and John HURREN; granddaughters Elizabeth NUNN and Judi...? [Julia?] NUNN (children of William NUNN of Yoxford? ... by the testator's late daughter Lydia); grandson John CURTIS alias HURREN; son Robert HURREN and his wife Lydia; and daughters Mary DAVY and Ann Hurren.
