Norton Family
of Mattishall and Mattishall Burgh
The Norton family have been part of Mattishall's history for many generations, being farmers, land owners, bakers as well as other trades-men and even inn-keepers.
The main base of the Norton family (confirmed through records) is that of Robert Norton (1804) and his wife Frances Francis (highlighted in the index below). However although there are records missing there is every evidence to believe we can go back three more generation to Francis and Susan using the rule of possibility. The name 'Lindoe' is a key factor.
As we get back into the 1700's things become a more difficult to connect people and families as many clergy did not go in for good book keeping but with the information we have at hand so far this is how I see the Norton's of Mattishall and Mattishall Burgh.
We did have other Norton's in the village but to-date I have not been able to connect them to this family.

THE NORTONS OF MATTISHALL - The main line of Nortons who played a big part of Mattishal's history were the product of Robert Norton (1804) and his wife Frances Francis. We have gone back three further generations and included some members of the family who were born , lived and were part of Mattishall village life. As they have left the village their lines have not been follwed up.
From Robert (1804) the generations are set out in layers - meaning the generations are layered on top of each other. To define them they are color coded as above . It may look a bit severe but to get the whole family on one page it was considered to be the easiest way to display them. This family profile mainly deals with the Norton's and their relationship to Mattishall as mentioned as they have moved away the lines have not been followed up.

The Norton's were living in Mattishall way before our written records, mainly as land owners and farmers. From old village maps it shows they owned land and property at several locations round the village as well as Mattishall Burgh. In later years the family were best know as Bakers, one part of the family having premises on Church Plain, another at the West End of the village in the cottages just before the Eight Ringer's Public House (now closed) on Dereham Road. The properly was next door to the Hoy family of clock and watch-making fame. The Norton's also went into producing bread on a larger scale, providing a delivery service to cover a wider area, for this they had a large building erected on South Green. This is now occupied by Dennis Gaskin as a garage carrying out car repairs and MOT's. With shopping habits changing the compitition was fearce and one by one they closed. The last to close was the bakerary and shop on Church Plain owned by Richard Norton one of the last remaining descendants of the family still living in the village, Richard has been a very active member of village life as he has held the position of chairman of the Parish Council for many years.

This family is a possible ancestral link back from Robert Norton (1804)
FRANCIS NORTON - born about ? and his wife Susan Unknown

Francis Norton married Susan unknown - date unknown
Francia and Susan had children:

As this Francis and Susan and their family were local and as the Robert Norton who married Anne Lindoe in 1762 were married by licence (below) it could be this is the family from which that Robert came from. He would have been aged 17 or 18 at the time of his married which would put him about the same age as Anne who was only about 19.

This family is a possible ancestral link back from Robert Norton (1804)
ROBERT NORTON born about 1745 and Anne Lindoe
Could be the son of Francis Norton and Susan (above)

1745: Jul 3 – Baptism at All Saints Church Mattishall
Robert Norton son of Francis Norton and Susan

1762: Apr 13 – Marriage at All Saints Church, Mattishall - Entry: 56
Robert Norton of this parish married Ann Lindoe of this parish – this appears to be the origin of the Christian name LINDOE
Married by Licence - Signed by Thomas Shelford, Curate: Samuel Howlett, churchwarden.

Anne Lindoe was baptised on October 3rd 1743 at All Saints Church Mattishall
Daughter of Samuel Lindoe and his wife Hannah
Anne would ahe been about 19 years of age at the time of her marriage - assuming she was baptised the same year as her birth.

Robert and Ann had children:

[1] 1764: May 13 – Baptism at All Saints Church Mattishall

[2] 1765: Baptism record at All Saint Church, Mattishall - SEE MORE BELOW or CHECK INDEX
Robert Norton son of Robert Norton and his wife Ann (now known to be Ann Lindoe)

Although no other birth records have come to light it is highly likely that Lindoe Norton born about 1766 belongs to this couple

[3] 1766: Lindoe Norton – no baptism record found

Ann died on April 10th 1807
1807:
Apr 15 – Burial at All Saints Church Mattishall – Anne Norton wife of Robert Norton a Farmer
Ann’s death is also recorded in the records of Old Moor Chapel on Badley Moor (item 99) so it appears the family had moved to the nonconformist’s – Ann’s son Lindoe and Matthew were very active in the church.

No record found of Robert’s death?

This family is a possible ancestral link back from Robert Norton (1804)
ROBERT NORTON - born 1765 and Patiance Allen
Son of Robert Norton and Ann Lindoe

1765: BAPTISM record at All Saint Church, Mattishall
Robert Norton son of Robert Norton and his wife Ann Lindoe

1791: Sep 06 - Marriage record at All Saint Church Mattishall - Entry 153
Robert Norton – single man of this parish married Patience Allen – single women of this parish
Witness: Ann Norton and Ruth Payne - Married by Licence by John Smith, Vicar

Patience Allen was baptised May 30th 1773 at Old Moor Chapel Badley Moor
Daughter of William Allen a Weaver and his wife Alice

Robert and Patience had children all baptised but at strange ages at All Saints Church and St Peter's:

The following 5 were baptised at All Saints Church Mattishall
[1] Elizabeth Norton - baptised Mar 24, 1795 daughter of Robert Norton a Baker and Patience his wife - No further records found

[2] Ann Norton - baptised Jul 23, 1797 daughter of Robert Norton a Baker and Patience - Ann changed her name to *Hannah* and for some reason re-baptised at St Peter's shortly before she married.

[3] Robert Norton - baptised Sep 14, 1798 son of Robert Norton a Baker and Patience
Robert died – burial Oct 24, 1798 son of Robert a Baker and Patience

[4] Mary Ann Norton - baptised Jan 13, 1800 daughter of Robert Norton a Baker and Patience

[5] Louisa Norton - baptised Oct 22, 1801 daughter of Robert Norton a Baker and Patience - *Louisa* was she re-baptised at St Peter's in 1820

About this time it appears some of the family were struggling with their faith as some had been found worshiping at the nonconformists church on Badley Moor (Old Moor Chapel) – This could be the case here as no further children were recorded being baptised at All Saints and later we find that Patience was finally buried in the graveyard of Old Moor Chapel.

Methodism was also making its appearance, John Wesley paid more than forty visits to Norfolk. Wesleyan Methodism did not propagated itself quickly. A society was formed a Mattishall early in the 1800's but was dissolved. Was Robert Norton part of this? For it is about this time he stopped baptising his children at All Saints Church. The chapel built by the Wesleyans at Mattishall was abandoned when the society went to pieces. The Congregationalists took it for a time. But in the main it stood dilapidated until the winter of 1830-31 when the Rev Robert Key a Primitive Methodist minster decided to make Mattishall his headquarters. Although we see below Robert Norton had returned to Anglican church of St Peter's at Mattishall Burgh where we see he and Patience re-baptised their children even though they were approaching adulthood. .

1809: Sep 13 - Norfolk Chronicle
To Be Sold - with immediate possession a very eligible SITUATION for a Baker, now in full trade, comprising all that messuage and baking office, with stable and other outbuildings, to the same belonging, in Mattishall in the County of Norfolk, now in the occupation of Mr Robert Norton. Together with two dwelling-houses adjoining, with gardens and outbuilding to each, in the several occupations of Robert Gunton, and Robert Thyne. - also all that messuage, with a butchers shop in Mattishall aforesaid, in the several occupations of Charles Fisher and William Howe, with the outbuilding, and gardens and an enclosure of excellent land adjoining containing one acre and a half. - For further particulars apply to Mr Cooper, Attorney, Dereham

The following were all baptised at St Peter's Church Mattishall Burgh.
I believe ROBERT (1804), MATTHEW, LOUSIA and JOHN (below) fits in here, although all but John were not baptised until their teens

*Hannah Norton* - batised Jan 24th 1819 at St Peter's Church - Entry 53 - daughter of Robert Norton a Yeoman and his wife Patience late Allan
Note: Age about 22 years - this would make Hannah's birth date about 1797 - Hannah married John Hall in 1820

1820: Aug 13 - Marriage at St Peter's Church Mattishall Burgh - Entry 10
John Hall a Bachelor married Hannah Norton a Spinster
Witness: Ann Day and Palmer Barwick - SEE MORE BELOW

[6] Robert Norton - was born about 1804 and was baptised on May 28th 1820 at St Peter's Church - Entry 68 - son of Robert Norton a Yeoman and his wife Patience late Allan spinster

[7] Matthew Norton - baptised May 28th 1820 at St Peter's Church - Entry 69 - son of Robert Norton a Yeoman and his wife Patience Late Allan spinster
In the book all other entries have birth dates apart from Robert and Matthew and as Hannah was 22 when she was baptised we could assume Robert's real birth date could have been about 1804 and Matthews about 1812

*Lousie Norton* was baptised again at St Peter's Church on Oct 29th 1820 - Entry 74 - daughter of Robert Norton a Yeoman and his wife Patiance late Allan, spinster This would make Louisa about 19 years of age. Two years on she married William Turner and her parents and brother Robert were witness.

1822: Oct 1st- Marriage at St Peter's Church Mattishall Burgh - Entry 13
William Turner a Bachelor married Louisa Norton a Spinster

[8] John Norton - batised October 29th 1820, born Oct 1st 1820 - Entry 75 - son of Robert Norton a Yeoman and his wife Patience late Allan, spinster
John died at 7 weeks old and was buried on Nov 17th 1820 at St Peter's Churhyard - Entry 17

In Mattishall Burgh the major land owners at this time were Robert Norton, John Petchell Junior, and William Taylor other names mentioned were Mrs Bodman, Sarah Beckham and the Vassar's of Mattishall. By 1820 nearly a third of Mattishall had been re-shaped as a result of the Enclosure Act. New ditches, hawthorne hedges took root and over 700 acres of moor land and heath were brought into cultivation.

1837: Sep 27 – Bury & Norwich Post - The death of Mr Robert Norton of Mattishall Burgh aged 73 (1764) Sep quarter Mitford & Launditch (13 132) - No burial place has been found for Robert
