Dear Edward,
How did you go?  I've got lots of information on the Norfolks but haven't been very active lately due to work pressures.  I'll try and have a look at my stuff soon.  We are probably distantly related.  James Lambert was my great, great grandfather's younger brother.  To my knowledge, JLN only had one son, named James.  There were many siblings and children.

I too am tracing the Thomas Norfolk of Deptford line.  My grandmother was married to a Harold Norfolk (but I cannot find his birth) who stated on the marriage certificate that his father was James Lambert Norfolk.  Harold Norfolk suddenly disappeared around 1914 and my mother recalls seeing him in a military uniform when she was a child.  I have not been able to trace his death although I have managed to go back a considerable way with the rest of the family.  I am finding it extremely frustrating that I cannot find any information on him!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Sarah,
How did you go with your search?  I don't know about money or royalty but I am related to Thomas and have been doing some research.

I am tracing the line of Thomas Norfolk of Deptford for a client of mine and notice you have information on him, but I'm afraid I can't seem to make the  associated "contact me" button for that page work. I do hope you don't mind my trying to reach you through the forum.
I have taken my client's family back to Thomas's marriage in Hadlow in 1799. but cannot find a baptism as yet though I am working on it. Your first mention of him in Bromley is as a post boy at an Inn. Could you possibly tell me what your source is for this information?
My client has a family story that this Norfolk line was connected to Royalty. I have not yet found any sign of this and their undoubted wealth seems to have come from their connection through marriage to the Lambert brewing family in Deptford, but I would like to find out more about Thomas's birth.
Many Thanks
