red mail Burton of Great Yarmouth and South Town
John Burton, deal merchant in South Town, died 1791. His wife, was Frances (named in his will and his son William's will) - it appears her maiden name was Cole, but I can only find a marriage record for John Burton and Nancy Cole, Norfolk, 1754, which may be an incorrect transcription for Frances. Their daughter Sarah Burton married Daniel Durrant Scott in Yarmouth, March 1791 (they are my ancestors - she is incorrectly named as daughter of John Burton and Mary Ferrier in "The perlustration of Great Yarmouth", and is possibly their granddaughter). John & Frances' other children were: William Burton, deal merchant, died 1797; Susannah, b c1761, d.1789 age 28; Frances, bapt 1765, married Phineas Phene; possibly John, died young.

So - what about Abigail Ditcham who he married in 1810? She was the daughter of John Ditcham (b.1764) and Sarah Potts (b.1769). There were both from Great Yarmouth and married there. I've sussed out that John Ditcham was the son of William & Hannah Ditcham from Great Yarmouth, Sarah Potts was the daughter of Vardel Potts and Abigail Thompson who were married in 1753 at Norwich. Vardel was from Wells, Norfolk and was born in 1725, the son of Thomas Potts and Sarah Loose (married 18/11/1714, Wells, Norfolk). Sarah, Vardel's mother, was the daughter of Christopher & Sarah Loose who, I would imagine, were married in Norfolk around 1684. Does anyone konw any more of this story? HELP!!
