Gaffs in Cawston, Norfolk

I am looking for cemetery records from Cawston, Norfolk to try and prove some family connections. Are the cemeteries transcribed and does anyone have access to the records?

The family I am looking for is Henry Gaff (1829 - 1907) and Maria Barber (1829 - 1916). Their children are Mary Ann who married Henry Hudson, Emma Jane who died in 1869, Sarah who married Richard Ortt, Martha Rachel, Thomas who married Anna Maria Daniels, Anna Maria who married William Harmer and Alfred Robert who married Fanny Greenman.

Henry's parents were Thomas Gaff (1783 - 1831) and Sarah Mack (1794 - 1872). His mother married a second time to Joseph Long. Thomas and Sarah's children were John Mack who married Elizabeth Wells, Mary (1817-1832), Joseph (1823), Thomas (1826 - 1832) and Henry. I am hoping cemetery records will prove that Thomas Sr., Mary and Thomas Jr. are family as the parish burial records didn't list relationships.

Thomas' parents were John Gaff and Honoria Outley (1752-1843). Their children were Thomas, Hannah, Ann, Mary, Sarah and Elizabeth.

I have been trying to sort out the different Gaff families in Cawston which has been difficult as they all use the same names.

Does anyone know when the Gaffs first came to Cawston?

Looking forward to any help,
Victoria, BC Canada
