Money's of the Bacton area, Co Norfolk

Surname Index Page The following chart contains the descendants of Robert Money (abt.1595-bt.1635/1644). Bacton PR's go back to 1588 and there are no references to the Money family in Bacton prior to the baptism of Margaret in 1621. This implies Robert was not native to Bacton. Whether he was a native of the area and came from a parish for which records are unavailable or elsewhere is unknown (note he married near Norwich). Attempts to find Robert's origin have so far proven unsuccessful, however his wife's ancestry (Elizabeth Crome) can be traced back several generations (see the Crome chart). Co Norfolk Index Page

1. Robert Money,[1] born between 1585-1600. {Assuming at least 20yo when married and no more than 50yo when last known child was born} Died between 1635-1644. Married Elizabeth Crome, 14/12/1620, St Bartholemew, Heigham, Norwich, Co Norfolk.[4] Elizabeth, d/o Thomas Chrome, was baptised 3/5/1596, Saint Michael Coslany, Norwich, Co Norfolk.[5] Elizabeth married 2nd Milo (Myles) Pestell, 11/1644, St Andrew, Bacton, Co Norfolk.[1] {Myles was a widower and several of his children married Robert's children. Myles & Elizabeth Pestell had no issue indicating either (or both) died soon after the marriage or Elizabeth was past child-bearing age - Robert's wife would certainly have been past child bearing age by 1644} Myles was probably the son of Miles Postell, born 1561, East Ruston, Co Norfolk, died 1613.[6]

St Bartholomew, Heigham was built in 1254. It was the Parish Church for Heigham. The Parish Register dates from 1570. In 1942 the church was largely destroyed in a German bombing raid. The church tower was all that survived. In the 1950's the ruins were cleared and the tower stabilised. The gravestones were removed and the site turned into a public park. The building had been heavily Victorianised in the 1800's, with a south aisle juxtaposed slightly awkwardly with the nave and chancel beside it. Both aisles appear taller than the nave. The 15th Century tower, with what look like 18th Century elaborations to the battlements, is elegant, but rather slight in proportion to the rest of the building. The parish of Heigham is just about as close as it is possible to be to central Norwich and still be outside the walls, and long before the 19th Century this was a busy place. By the middle of the Victorian era the part of the parish to the north of the Dereham Road was a tightly hemmed area of working class terraces, with street corner shops and pubs, some of which still survive.[Old Norwich, Norfolk Churches] For background on St Michael Coslany, Norwich, refer to the Crome chart.

Bacton is on the coast of Norfolk, north-east of Aylsham (on almost a straight line from Aylsham, through North Walsham and onto the coast). Bacton was not always a coastal village - it was originally an inland village, some distance inland from the village of Keswick. Thanks to flooding and coastal erosion Keswick has long since vanished and now Bacton lies on the coast. Bacton dates back to at least 495AD when the invading Saxons called it Bectuna ("Bec's Town"). After the Norman invasion the village was known as Bachetuna and passed into the hands of Robert de Glanville. His son, William, founded the Bromholm Priory in 1113. The priory had rather humble origins but in 1223 it bought a supposed piece of the Cross. Claims of miracles followed and the village and priory enjoyed an economic boom (Edward II was a noted visitor) which continued until the 16th Century & the dissolution of the monastic orders by Henry VIII. The village was particularly hard hit by plague in the late 1480's and again between 1625-1650. The church is sited some distance from the village centre (it has been speculated this was due to the decimation of the village in the plague). The present church building dates to the 15th Century, constructed from squared flint and stone.[2]

Walcott is a small village and civil parish on the north Norfolk coast. The name derives from the Celtic word Walecote, which means village by the wood. The village is 31km north east of Norwich & 9km east of North Walsham. The church at Walcott is dedicated to All Saints and dates from the middle 1300s. All Saints sits inland, away from the village with just a couple of cottages for company. All Saints was rebuilt in the early 15th century. All Saints inside is full of light, a typically Victorianised church with some medieval survivals. The font dates from the 13th century, from the earlier church, the foundations of which were been discovered in a nearby garden. The church is built of flint in the perpendicular style. Between 1250 and 1350, manorial accounts indicate the main agriculture in the vicinity was about 50% Barley, 20% Legumes, 15% Wheat and remainder consisting of Rye, Oats and mixed grain. Livestock consisted of about 55% cattle, 30% sheep and the remainder was horses, oxen and pigs. By 1845 Walcott had 172 residents and an area of 685 acres. This had dropped to 141 by 1864 and to just 121 by 1881. The sea is rapidly encroaching on this parish.[Wikipedia, GenUKI, Walcott, Norfolk Churches]

The town and church parish of Ridlington is in the north-east of Norfolk, just inland from the coast in the eastern part of the civil parish of Witton. The name Ridlington is thought to derive from the Old English for Hrethel’s people’s enclosure. The village is surrounded by land largely in arable use. The parish is a scattering of houses and farms centred around a crossroads on the road from North Walsham to Happisburgh. Although primarily an inland parish, a small spur of the parish extends through to embrace a short section of foreshore between Bacton and Walcott. The dearth of maritime occupations in the fathers of the parish show, however, the agricultural focus of the village. In 1845 Ridlington had 212 residends and 600 acres of land. By 1854 this had risen to 256 residents (and 601 acres), but by 1883 it had dropped to 195 inhabitants and 590 acres. St Peter's church is situated close to the main village crossroads. By Norfolk standards it is a comparatively recent, dating from the 15th century. The style is Perpendicular and typical for the area. The church has a square tower, with figures of the Evangelists, serving as pinnacles. The Chancel roof is thatched but the nave roof is in slate. In World War I a Zeppelin dropped four bombs in the area one of which blew out the east end of the church.[GenUKI, Wikipedia, Norfolk Churches, Norfolk Baptism Project]

Witton Bridge or Witton is a village and civil parish in north-east Norfolk. It is 8km east of North Walsham and 30 km north of Norwich. It should not be confused with the village of Witton to the east of Norwich. The civil parish has an area of just under 10 km2 and in 2001 had a population of 298. In 1845 it had 280 inhabitants and covered 1720 acres. The church is dedicated to St Margaret (confusingly, the church in the other Witton is also dedicated to St Margaret!). Unlike the land in the south-east of Norfolk which is mostly lowland and marshes, the land in the north-east consists of rolling hills, cut short into cliffs at the coast by sea erosion. A few of miles inland, St Margaret sits surrounded by trees on the brow of upland, fields all around, hardly a house at all within a mile. Most of the churches in this area had their round towers replaced in the 13th and 14th century, but St Margaret still retains the old circular tower. The church also appears to incorporate parts of an earlier Saxon church, including part of a wall with several typical Saxon windows. In the early 14th century, they began to expand the church, but rather than rebuild it they heightened the existing walls.[Wikipedia, Norfolk Churches, GenUKI]

Stalham is a market town in Co Norfolk. It covers an area of 7.30km2 and had a population of 2,951 in 2001. It lies within the Norfolk Broads, about 24km north-east of Norwich. In 1845 the population was 679 & covered an area of 1759 acres. In 1883 the population was 852. The soil is fine strong land, subsoil, brick-earth, sand and and gravel. In the 1880's the chief crops were wheat, oats and barley, roots and beans. The parish church, St Mary's, is gothic in style and dates to the 15th century, built of flint with stone dressings and consists of a nave with aisles and clerestory, chancel, south porch, and square embattled tower with one bell.[Wikipedia, GenUKI]

Smallburgh is a village, 21km north-east of Norwich and 8km south-east of the nearby town of North Walsham. The village covers an area of 1,255 acres (5km2). In 1881 it had a population of 504. The name of the village comes from 'Bank of the River Smale', the Smale being the old name for the River Ant. Smale itself derives from Old English word smale or beorg which means hillock. It is believed locally that the field to the north of the church was the site of the original Saxon settlement. In the Domesday Book, the settlement of Smallburgh is described as being a quiet, small place. In 1588 the village was split with there being two main areas of settlement. The first part being the present village centre and the area around Low Street which was a considerable-sized hamnet and this constituted the manor of Smallburgh. The second part was situated at the present Holly House and was known as the manor of Smallburgh Catts. The parish church is called St Peter’s and dates from the 13th century, with the walls being raised in height and large windows being incorporated into the building in 1400. The church stands on the site of an earlier Norman building, dating back to at least 1186. In 1677 the church tower collapsed bringing down the west wall with it and damaging the font. For many years the church was in a state of disrepair. A makeshift tower was constructed in 1822 but in 1902 the present bell cote was constructed and the west wall rebuilt. The long timescale of these repairs was because the village was very poor at that time, and the church had to use its money for the care of the poor.[Smallburgh Village, Wikipedia, Norfolk Churches, GenUKI]

Southrepps is a village and civil parish 22 miles north of Norwich. The village is close to the sea but surrounded by rich agricultural land. It is one of group of settlements which lie back from the coast by two or three miles, Southrepps serves a largely arable countryside as a centre for provisions and community. Population of 813 in 1845 & an area of 2081 acres. In 1881 the population was 831. The village is split in two halves separated by a mile of farmland. The halves of the village are known as Upper Southrepps and Lower Southrepps (Upper Street and Lower Street). It is believed locally that this situation came about due to the Black Death. The climate and geology have combined to make the area highly productive in various forms of agriculture, crops and sheep farming being predominant from the Middle Ages. The very large parish church dominates the local landscape and is called St James, dedicated to St James of Compostella, and its structure features the scalloped shell motif characteristic of that saint. The church's Decorated style dates it from the 14th century but its most notable feature the 148 foot tower dates from around the middle of the 15th. The tower is a tribute to the wool industry which dominated this part of Norfolk at that time making for wealth and a spate of tower building characteric of this area.[Wikipedia, 1813 Baptism Project, GenUKI]
