The 'Horne' Family

John Horn


John Horn  


Abt 1711  
Died: Sometime between 1756 - 1768  
Parents Unknown

According to the records of St Nicholas Church there is no record of John Horn/Horne being born or married in Dereham.
In fact there are no records of any Horn/Hornes being married 1679-1760 at St Nicholas at all during this time.
As we see John's wife Elizabeth died in 1799, she was recorded as widow - there is no bruial record of any Horn/Horne from the period of 1750-1799 - apart from a Robert Horne who was buried Sep 14, 1779 - was this a mistake and should it have been John?
We need to check if there is a memorial record !!

There is however the following record could fit?

1742/43: Jan 05 - Marriage at St John Maddermarket Church, Norwich
John Horne a Widower married Elisabeth Smith a Single Women - both from Pulham St Mary Magdalen

We see that John was a widower so could the following record also fit?

1741: May 20 - Burial at St Mary Magdalen Church, Pulham Market
Elizabeth wife of John Horn




Elizabeth ?

It seems strange that John's name was left blank - What was the reason for this? - One answer could be, John was in the military and maybe involved, and lost his life in the seven year war with France (1756 - 1763). During this time the siege of Quebec, Canada took place on September 13th 1759. Was John part of this??? - the answer could lie in the Muster Rolls!!!!! - more research.

Colud this be John and Elizabeth
