What information are you looking for?

There is an 1871 census record for a John Harnwell living at Ber Street, St John de Sepulchre, Norwich, Norfolk with his wife Mary.

The image says that he is an umbrella maker born in Bressingham.

There is a marriage record for a John Harnwell to a Mary Anne Fisk.  Married on 9 July 1832, place not specified.

The banns record however says Bressingham.

The image for the marriage states John was a widower, so presumably there is an earlier marriage somewhere.

I've found what appears to be the same man and his wife in the 1861 census.

Living at Market Hill, Framlingham, Plomesgate, Suffolk as lodgers.  His occupation is given as umbrella maker born in Bressingham.

He has been given a birth year of 1809 however if you look at the original his age is given as 58, so birth year of 1803.

No children with them.

Were you expecting them to have had children?

Thank you Girl Guide. I have some of those but I'll check them out. This is a really complicated family. There are lots of them in the Bressingham area and some in West Walton. Sometimes if they move the spelling of the surname changes. I suppose that's due to pronunciation. Thanks again, Kamar

I think this is a different person. There is one family whose father had a wife and a housekeeper, who had two families at the same time. Sometimes they called themselves Harnwell and sometimes Long and sometimes Long Harnwell.   Thank you for your help, Kamar
