Rector J Wilkins
« on: Thursday 16 November 23 17:38 GMT (UK) »
Hello   I'm trying to find a rector of St James Church, Great Ellingham, Norfolk named J Wilkins.
I have very little information about him - birth etc and a search on Google re: list of rectors for Great Ellingham - hasn't been any good.  Any help would be appreciated   TIA

Sorry, that's the problem.   I'm guessing 18-19th Century.  I stumbled across his name and made the mistake of not noting where I'd found it. Classic

There is a Rev J Wilkins of Attleborough presiding at a memorial service in Great Ellingham in 1899.  I looked in newspapers, there are probably some more hits.

Replying on my phone....
Try CCED (Clergy of the Church of England Database) up to mid 19th century and then Crockfords Clerical Directory after that. CCED is free and online. Ancestry has some editions of Crockfords searchable.

What is your interest in him?  Is he a possible ancestor?

I have asked the moderator to move your post to the Norfolk board

Thanks everyone.  Looks as though the 1899 Attleborough is promising as I thought it was possibly 19th/20th century.  My interest in him is because our family name is Wilkins and most of them lived in Great Ellingham and I wondered if he was related to the Wilkins on my tree.  Thanks again

That 1899 man is Baptist not C of E, so not a direct St James connection.....
