Comment :-- family being researched: GARWOOD
John and Mary GARWOOD: Norton Subcourse.
John and Mary are brother and sister, the children of John and Elizabeth (also buried here).
John was born in August 1761, was a prosperous farmer in the village, married twice, to Mary ORFORD then to Margaret BLANCHFLOWER, and died on 21 March 1816. His will appears on the Norfolk Record Office online resource. He had 11 children.
Mary, his sister, was born in c March 1770 (ch 18 March). She never married. In the 1841 Census, she was living with her 2 nieces Margaret and Jane (children of John and Margaret BLANCHFLOWER) in High St, Lowestoft. She died in Lowestoft in November 1848 (NOT 1849 as shown on the gravestone)and was buried St Mary's on 25 Nov. BMD info and the Parish records both confirm that the stone is WRONG!
