Thornborough, London NORTON

Recently found a reference for my 3rd GGrandfather FRANCIS HENRY NORTON as being from Thornborough. (1791) I had previously thought he was from Tasburgh. His wife was Margaret. He had several children among them Francis J, Henry F, Edward, Ann, and Maria. He settled in London where he lived at 1 york st St James, and 8 Half Moon St. He had worked as a servant for the Earl of Uxbridge. Later as "Clerk Comptroller of Her majesty's Household" for a period of 14 years in the 1840s-early 50. His died in 1858.
This is my brick wall. The clues to his parantage are not readily known. Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. Email above
All the best to you
Brian Norton
