Burton on Trent, Stapenhill & South Derbyshire

In the course of my research I have become aware of a number of other NORTON families which are, as far as I can ascertain, unrelated to mine. There is always a chance, however, that there may be an earlier connection, so if you can find a link, please contact me. Apart from the first two pair of families, there is no known family connection between any of these groups.

The first two family groups are a father and son living in Darley Abbey, Derby. While I know of no connection to my family at this stage, the children's names are remarkably similar to those used in my own family. I would not be surprised to find a connection.

The second pair of group sheets represent the families of two brothers who appear to have arrived in Burton on Trent around the 1860s - 1870s. They were sons of Joseph NORTON, Labourer, and Sarah GREENFIELD, who married on 6 April 1841, in Church Aston, Salop. (These two families use names which are notably similar to those used in my NORTON family).
