1711 Henry Eagle married Ester Keller 1745 re 1748/9 William EAGLE in Rushford Norfolk

see1798 William EAGLE of Norfolk marries Ann Brand

and William EAGLE born around 1748 looking for birth in Norfolk

directly from 1748/9 William EAGLE in Rushford Norfolk

from http://www.freereg.org.uk

Norfolk Rushford St John the Evangelist Tr 08 Feb 1748/49 William to Henry & Ester EAGLE

Rushford is 3 1/2 miles east of Thetford

Looks like this Wm disappears from Norfolk and might very well be the Wm who appears to Scotland with the Dragoons.
However our Wm does not use Henry or Ester or Esther or Hester for his own children

Looking marriage of the parents

No sign in Rushford Norfolk But

HENRY EAGLE to ESTER KELLER 19 JUN 1745 Euston, Suffolk, England

Although across the border Euston is only 2 1/2 miles from Rushford along the Rushford Road

Looking for birth of Henry

Henry Eagle Birth: About 1720 Of, Euston, Suffolk, England
Messages: Record submitted after 1991 by a member of the LDS Church
Well as he gave a date I accept the marriage detail but this looks like pure guess

Henry Eagle Christening: 25 NOV 1711 Elveden, Suffolk, England
Parents: Father: William Eagle Mother: Jane
Messages: Record submitted by a member of the LDS Church.

This is better an actual date - of course it could be from a Bible and the place guessed I think ok - must see if SAG have the parish registers.

Note Elveden is only 5 miles due west of Euston so I think this is Henry's birth

 

Looking for birth of Esther

Ester Keller Birth: About 1724 Of, Euston, Suffolk, England Christening
Messages: Record submitted after 1991 by a member of the LDS Church
Again looks like pure guess - wife 21 so 1745 - 21 and same place

Otherwise this but  a bit far away
Hester Sellars 07 Nov 1717 MATTERSEY,NOTTINGHAM,ENGLAND John Sellars
all that  I found for this Hester

Another child ?

25 Sep 1746 Elizabeth daughter of Henry & Hester Eagle.

On Ancestry from Suffolk: West Stow, Wordwell - West Stow Parish Registers 1558-1850 and Wordwell Parish Registers, 1580-1850

Then it came up on LDS Elizabeth Eagle 25 Sep 1746 WEST STOW,SUFFOLK,ENGLAND to Henry Eagle & Hester

Nothing else burial or marriage found for Elizabeth

 

Summary

The 1745 marriage in nearby Euston, Suffolk must be parents of William born in Rushford. Henry seemingly born in Elveden. Ester could be from Notts. No other children found for Henry and Ester and they themselves vanish. No burial etc found

Wordwell and West Stow are close and some 6 miles due south of Elveden
