Cantley and Moulton
« on: Saturday 03 November 18 11:09 GMT (UK) »
After a happy diversion to/from Scotland and Ireland for the wife's side of the family I have been entering some data on to my Family Tree Maker and using a Parish Register map at the same time to just reassure myself that the info I have look plausible.

Then I saw it ... Cantley. It looks like there are two parishes in Norfolk.
One near Langley.
One near Acle.

Are these some and the same parish or are they completely different?

The same applies to Moulton.

Thanks in advance.

Have you had a look at the Norfolk pages on the Genuki site. They may help to answer your question.

Thank you all so it looks like it a detached part of the parish.
