Duffield family in Suffolk
« on: Sunday 14 November 21 21:28 GMT (UK) »
i am looking for information about the parents of Frances Duffield who was born in Gorleston, Suffolk in about 1805. Different census records give her a birthdate between 1801 and 1811. I have tried all these dates in Ancestry, Family Search and Find My Past but cannot find her. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

There are several other children baptised to the couple, starting in Fritton and moving to Gorleston, all on FindMyPast. Elizabeth's maiden name is Carman rather than Carmer, however I haven't found a marriage so far.

You are brilliant! Thank you so much. Where did you find all this information? I thought I had looked everywhere and I would have expected to see the record with the surname spelled differently amongst the others.

Anyway, I really appreciate you going to all that trouble and I will see if I can find the records myself. 😄
