The Larkman Family in Norfolk

This page lists those members of the Larkman family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

Our Larkman ancestors lived near Reepham in Norfolk, but we are unsure of their earlier history. A Robert Larkman was baptised in 1735 at Weybourne on the north Norfolk coast, who may have been the Robert Larkman who married Diana Fish in Guestwick, north-west of Reepham. We have found branches of the family in Guestwick, Great Cressingham and Salle as well as in the Reepham parishes.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Norfolk unless otherwise indicated.
