Thetford - Brundles
William Brundle was born abt 1821 and he was married to Sasian / Sarah Ann according to 1881/1891 censuses. Both were stated to be born in Shropham, though Sarah Ann's was also transcribed and appeared to be North Lopham. Kilverstone is another location mentioned. One of their daighters - Elizabeth Brundle b abt 1864 married my greatgrandfather William Buckee. Another daughter appears to be Harriet E, dressmaker. Another census from 1881 gives 2 Brundle families in Bromeswell, among just 5 households. It may be that William had more than one wife and hence other children, as I cannot trace earlier records of him and Sasian/Sarah closer to teh times of Elizabeth and Harriet's births. Wondered whether anyone else knew the area / surnames!
