Primary events

  • Birth: James William Larn was born on 29 June 1838 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England.2
  • Christening: He was christened on 6 July 1838 in St Nicholas' Church, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Original PR. This has been transcibed in Freereg as James STEEL and Elizabeith LORN.3
  • Death of Father: His father James Steel Larn died on 7 October 1849 in Great Yarmouth, England.4
  • Marriage: James William Larn married Martha Parker, daughter of John Parker, on Thursday, 17 October 1861 in Great Yarmouth, England, when they were 23 years, 3 months and 18 days ~&~ 19 years old. The ceremony was witnessed by Elizabeth Allen and James Burman.1,5,6
  • Death Reg: James's death was registered in the quarter ended in March 1912 in the an unknown place registration district, Reasonably sure this was the James who is the son of James Steel LARN, as there are links in the census as taken each year (except 1861). Not sure about Martha though.. (His age calculates to 73 years and 8 months).7

Secondary circumstances

Census details

  • In the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841 James William was included in the household of James Steel Larn in Row 28, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England along with Elizabeth Barber and Charles Lloyd Larn. He was aged 2 years.
  • He appeared on the census taken on the night of 30th March 1851, living in Great Yarmouth, England in the household of his mother, Elizabeth Barber. He was 12 years old.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, James William was the head of the household and Martha was his wife. The address was 3 Garrison Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Martha's age does not agree with her age as quoted when she married. DOB at marriage 1842, in census 1845. This would make her 16 when she married but I cannot find her birth in Yarmouth in either year. We know that the James in the census is the one whose father is James as this was quoted when he married Martha in Yarmouth..
  • In the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881, James William was the head of the household and Martha was his wife. The address was 18 Lime Kiln Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Martha is shown as 31 and she was born in Norwich. In free bmd there are no marriages between a James LARN and a Martha between after the one in 1861, so I think this is still his first wife..
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, James William was the head of the household and Martha was his wife. The address was Great Yarmouth, England. Matha is shown as being born in 1849 (age 42) in Rockland St Mary.
  • In the census taken on the night of 31st March 1901, James William was the head of the household and Martha was his wife. The address was 17 Lime Kiln Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England Martha is now shown as being born in 1847 (age 54) in Rockland St Mary.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1911, James William was the head of the household. The address was an unknown place . possibly in 17 Lime Kiln Walk Yarmouth. He is a widowed fisherman, living alone.
