WYMER, Rev. Edward, Vicar of Westwick
« on: Thursday 08 April 10 06:15 BST (UK) »
My 3G Grandmother, Charlotte Elizabeth Wymer, was the eldest daughter of Rev. Edward Wymer and Elizabeth Whaites.  She was Baptized at Stalham, 1833, married Martin Isham Case 1855, married Thomas Steel ?, left England sometime between 1865-1879 and arrived in Pensacola, FL, USA 1879. 
Seeking any information regarding the immediate family who lived in East Anglia near Ingham, Westwick, Smallburgh, Stalham.  Other family names:  Berney, Petre, Whaites, Varlo
Wymer, Whaites, Miller, Kearfott, Hamilton, Chinn, Dahl, Bobe, Brown, Muller

thx for reply
This is the correct family:)  and I do have this record.  Charlotte was married to Martin Isham Case in Lincolnshire 1855 after this Census was taken.  All I can find for Martin Case is an ADMON record in 1857 and I have to assume he died because by 1858 she appears in Exeter as Mrs. Thomas Steel. 

Our family records begin with her life in Exeter.  She leaves England sometime after 1865 and shows up in America on the US Census of Florida in 1880.  She died in Pensacola, FL in 1916.

Her father, Rev. Edward Wymer remained in England, as did all of the other siblings.  I am hoping to find another family member with more information or an account of how and why Charlotte came to America.  I can find no record of her transit.

yes, the 1861 Census is her:)  Charlotte and Thomas had three daughters, Florence Isabel 1860, Alice Gertrude Mary 1863, and Fanny Adeline 1864. 

I will follow up on the 1856 Charlotte Case - thx:)

Just curious - opinions, please:)
I inquired at the Norfolk Studies Library and the best source they could provide was Norfolk Families by Walter Rye (no version given).  My research via Parish Registers, BMD and Census is a little different than Mr. Rye's.  Which sources would you regard more accurate?

PR's BMD and census win every time.

Presumably 'Norfolk famlies' is a book written by this Walter Rye chap. What are the sources for what he has written? Peoples memories? Survivng documents? His own imagination?
Unless he can come up with survivng documents to support what he has said, then stick with what you have found from survivng documents.

But dont write off what he has to say without looking at it first. He may be a good historian.

Whew...  I was only slightly worried all time spent on other sources was all for naught 8)  Amazing how many "books" have been put out there with erroneous info!
