Surnames: Horn,
Hello, I am looking for information on my great great grandfather George Horn. He was born November 9, 1846 and Christened on December 9, 1846. He immigrated to the U.S. in the 1860's with his family. If any one has information on his family line from England I would love to hear from you. Also, I would love to know where the christening took place!
Thank you.

Surnames: Gotts, Hurn,
On the British register which holds all births deaths and marriages, there is NO George Horn registered during 1846 in Norfolk. You have obviously not got the correct date of birth. When he married, he put his name as Hurn.

Have you got his mariage certificate. This would give his father's name and occupation.

Marriages Dec 1865
Gotts Mary Erpingham 4b 177
Hurn George Erpingham 4b 177

I think I might have the birth year wrong. Could be 1847! His father was James Horn and Mother was Jane (Harper) Horn, they were married 18 Sep 1833 Methwold, Norfolk, England. George Horn married Mary Gotts b. 1849 Thetford, Norfolk, England on Dec 25, probably 1865 in Washtenaw county, Michigan, USA!

YOU have only read one of the previous answers to your query, if you read all of them, you will see the answer.
You have to remember that these people were probably illiterate, and would not know how to spell their names.

He was born but registered as HORNE.

George Horn immigrated to Michigan in 1861 and Mary Gotts immigrated to Michigan in 1854/55 so this is not the correct marriage. They married on 25 December 1865 most likely in Washtenaw country Michigan. Michigan marriage records only go back to 1867.
