RICHES family in Norfolk
Can anyone help me in my Norfolk search? A couple of years ago I received much helpful advice from CuriousFox members in my quest to find the area of Norfolk from which my great grandfather James RICHES left in the mid-Victorian period to find work in London. He became a waterside labourer on the Thames in the Tooley Street, Horsleydown (sometimes spelt Horsely Down) area of Southwark  then in Surrey, but now Inner London. A problem I faced then (and still) was that I had never traced a birth certificate for his son (my grandfather) John Riches, while conflicting dates on Johns marriage and death certificates and 1911 census return put Johns birth in Horsleydown at between 1863 and 1871! Nevertheless, with the help of other sources, especially parish records, I have traced James to the village of STIBBARD, near Fakenham (in the registration district of Walsingham). From there the family tree was quite easy to follow. Great grandfather James Riches was the son of another James Riches, who was the son of Watts Riches (born 1796). The Christening parish record shows Wattss parents as William Riches and Sarah Withers Riches (Withers was her ex-husbands name) but there seem to be no earlier records available to me on the web about William and Sarah, and before. I was hoping someone locally might have included Watts Riches and his parents in their family trees, and had information which might help me go back a couple more generations. I do hope so. Mike.

Martha Shara latterly Vear or Littleton
I am looking for details of Martha Shara (sister of Robert) born approx 1841 in Stibbard. We believe she first married Edward Littleton (possibly in Norfolk) and then remarried to Samuel Vear in London. Any details of her, parents or siblings would be appreciated.
