Noticed you mentioned the Etheridge surname in connection with Norfolk on another member's page (almost ten years ago lol).  I recently learned of some Etheridge ancestors who appear to have come to the Norfolk area from Middlesex and Tottenham Parish, England sometime between 1610 and 1645. Any knowledge of Etheridge's in the Norfolk area?  Thanks!

wonder and what if - isnt that what we genealogy people do all the time!!? i am in the process of moving and have packed all genealogy away and it will take 3 months to get there! but when it does i will chase up the Purcells and let you know, maybe we have a link after all!

I hope there will soon be folks whose interests are simlar to mine. The possibilities are exciting! Regards, Eileen

Hi Lesley, Thanks for the invitation - the Norfolk Ancestor group could be rewarding. My Norfolk names are Allman (GY & Norwich, my father's name), Langley (GY & Gorleston), Read, Hazell & Greenwood. Those are the direct line names, but of course there are many others through marriage of siblings.
I have considerable knowledge of the Allmans in Norfolk and Suffolk, and of C18 Greenwood, which might be of help to someone.

Regards, Eileen
