Re: MURTON from Norfolk

In Reply to: MURTON from Norfolk by Paul Murton of 69

Over four years ago I contacted you in relation to an entry in my Family Tree (the first marriage of Louisa, daughter of an Isaac Murton). You referred to your Murton website - which does not seem to want to "play" on my Internet connection - you suggested the date of the event that Id enquired about, which was during 1836, and also that you had found very little early detail regarding your forebear Zephaniah Murton, born circa 1828. I am still looking for my Isaac (I have found a later Isaac who might have been a grandson - Louisa was born circa 1812, possibly in Burston, Norfolk, according to various Censuses) and in whilst so doing I thought about looking for your Zephaniah. Of course I know not if you are still interested, nor if you already know this detail, but here goes anyway -
in the 1891 Census for part of Plymouth, Zephaniah is shown - aged 63 and born in Diss, as a [married] Warbrobe Maker [with 3 sons](RG12/1736,fol.135,p.31)
in the 1841 Census - which Im sure you are aware is very basic as regards detail - for Worship St., Shoreditch, Zephaniah is shown as the eldest of what is probably a family of 5 children; his parents are (probably) John & Mary. I did not make complete notes but the reference is HO107/706/2 (p.3)
If, as I say, the detail above is of any use - good! I do not want thanks but rather an answer to my own query - any ideas? (and that answer could come from ANYONE who reads this - thanks!)
