Robert Kett married Elizabeth ?
« on: Tuesday 05 January 21 09:38 GMT (UK) »
Robert Kett married Elizabeth sometime before 1762 possibly in Norwich.
They had children found so far:

Mary bap 9 December 1764 St John De Sepulchre
Easbell Baxter ? bap 20 March 1768   
*Rebecca  bap 17 June 1770    (married Jeremiah Harris 10 October 1800)
*Robert  bap 3 May 1772
Sarah bap 4 October 1776 St Stephens
*Henry bap 29 November 1778
*Lydia bap 2 September 1781  (married William Gilbert 17 January 1800)

These children *were mentioned in the will of Sarah Hutcheson widow of Michael -1816 Norwich along with Abigail Martins wife of Leonard Martin (married 7 January 1788) and Elizabeth Lyng (Elizabeth Kett married Charles Lyng 29 December 1783 -Michael Hutcheson was a witness).

Question 1 is Easbell 1768 actually Abigail my ancestor or is she Elizabeth? If so where is Abigail?Based on her age at death born circa 1763.

Has anyone access to the original image of St John De Sepulchre for 1768 to check please.

Question 2 who is Elizabeth that Robert Kett married?

My other theory is that Abigail and Elizabeth are sisters of Robert and not his children as they married many years before Lydia and Rebecca.

Michael Hutcheson who died 1808 states Abigail Martins is his niece and 2 of her children are named Michael Hutcheson Martin 1803 and 1804 neither survived.

2 earlier baptisms to Robert & Elizabeth in Norwich. Same Robert & Elizabeth? Same Robert & different Elizabeth?

Elizabeth baptised 18 Jan 1760 St Michael at Thorn

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWSN-9RL

Alice baptised 17 April 1758 St Julian Norwich (FS has 1757, register 1758)

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NRZ1-4VT

Possible marriage to William Ewen 21 March 1779 but also a burial of Alice Kett aged 23 17 Nov 1781 at St Julian.

Thank you, I think the Elizabeth 1760 fits
My Abigail married Leonard Martin's. At least it could be a family name with the earlier Abigail
