Dear Victoria and Sarah,

I too am a descendant of Thomas - a quick google of my name finds me as would philipnorfolk ((AT)) hotmail (dot) com 

The house in Greenwich that was Thomas's family home is still standing - all looks very grand.

Let me know if any details need filling in after all this time.

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
