  • Christening: She was christened on 8 July 1849 in Woodton, Loddon, Norfolk, England. Possibly 23rd May same year. The latter is possibly the receiving into the church.5,6,7

The ages as quoted on marriage certificate says William is 23 and Rebecca is 21. In actuality Rebecca is 18, and William should have been (if born in 1837) 25. At the time of the marriage, they were both living at the same address. Earlier, in 1861, William was living in Rebecca's family house as a servant. Maybe they eloped, and did not have parent's permission.2,3,4

Census details

Background information on Caister-on-sea, Norfolk, England, - Caister is a seaside village a couple of miles north of the well Known holiday resort of Great Yarmouth. When Elizabeth was there in the middle of the 19th Century, it would have been entirely a fishing community, and as our chap was a miller presumably a mill as well. According to www.norfolkmills, there was a mill -Caister East tower mill was 42-foot high red brick mill that stood adjacent to Beach Road. In 1835 the mill was using two pairs of French Stones and a flour powered by sails on a cast iron windshaft. In 1842, common sails had recently been replaced by patent sails. Also on the site at that time were a dwelling house, suitable storage, garden and a newly erected bakehouse. Clay Road runs between Tan Lane and Beach Road, and about 200 meters away is Old Mill Road, so it does not look as if the family lived in the mill. Maybe William just worked there. Rebecca and William married in 1862 and had moved to a mill in Gorleston 1879. The mill advertised for sale 13th September 1862 and then nothing until advertised again in July 1871.
