Sorry Rob - I don't think you'll get much information here as this site is for and about people with the surname Norfolk, not simply people from the county of Norfolk.

I am trying to find information about a Sarah Eggett (my Gr.Gr. Grandmother). I'm afraid I dont have a great deal of information about her other than she gave birth to my Gr Grandmother, Hannah Eggett in Downham Union Workhouse in 1867. Sarah had two other daughters (Margaret and Lizzie) and I believe a son James born about 1858. Margaret may have also been born in the Union Workhouse.

Sarah obviously moved across to Lincolnshire because she married Edward Bycraft in Spalding 1874. (according to the marriage certificate her father was John Eggett.

Any information would be greatly appreciated
