Info from Monica Norton Penn. E-mail her (& Ken) if you know more.

Monica also supplied this, about the antecedents of Esther:-

In 1667 Priscilla Melling, daughter of John Melling (reputedly living at St Olave's Priory, Somerleton, Norfolk) was baptised on the 28th January. She died on 2nd April 1750 and was married to Mr Howes and lived at Toftmonks. (quote) "this proved a bad match and left two daughters". Quote from Esther Baldry in 1790 - one assumes she had a written history of the family. "The two daughters, Esther married Mr Barcham and Margaret died unmarried. Esther had issue - two daughters who both died single and a son who married Susan, the daughter of Henry and Mary Pleasants who was baptised May 10th 1730." (not quite sure who was baptised). "They had issue John, Esther and Susan the said John and Susan died in their infancy. Esther married Charles Baldry of Westhall and had issue 3 daughters Esther, Harriet and Maria Jane. Esther married Charles Boyce in December the 29th 1812.

I am going to photocopy for you a page from Esther's journal about this - the journal was written on some sort of fabric and by 1904 was just about to fall to pieces, so it was copied out by my Great Aunt Sophy Norton. I will see if I can find the letter form my Grandfather and forward it to you regarding this.
(This will be poted here when it arrives).

We had a Bead Box - amazing thing - which we think was used for baby clothes. It is now in the Bury St Edmunds museum which has been closed but I presume the contents must be available for public view. It was donated by my cousins, the Lacy Scott family as it had been in their house for years. The name embroidered inside it is Mellinge and I think it was Ann. Then there are three dates which we think must have been three children. Because there was no census in those days, I am unable to find anything about them but somewhere I have come across a Will I think it was, stating that the Mellinge family lived in Somerleyton, Norfolk at St Olave's Priory. If you look up St Olave's Priory on Google, there is no mention of Melling or Mellynge or whatever. My Aunt was called Mary Melling Norton and I note on there are several Melling women with the inital 'P' before their surname.
