Hi
Does anyone know of an 'epidemic' on Coltishall in 1869. The Barnard family lost 4 of their children
Henry James b 1857 d AMJ 1869
Robert b 1860 d AMJ 1869
Thomas b 1866 d AMJ 1869
Emily Jane b 1868 d AMJ 1869

Or does anyone have a connection to the Barnards in Coltishall

hello

there was an increase in childrens deaths there that year so one thinks it may have been a Measles or other childhood illness - if you obtained one of their death certs (online at £7 all in it should show the cause

hi there
Thanks for your email I guess I knew that a d c would give me an answer to one ( and probably all) the deaths, so I'll just order it. I thought there may have been some sort of record if there had been an epidemic.

Surnames: Sexton , Johnson, Springall,
Hi there
Thanks for getting back to me. I believe that James Barnard b 1832 was the son of William Barnard & Ann Sexton and the brother of Robert b 1835. William & Ann were my gr gr gr grandparents and Robert was my gr gr grandfather. I have lots of information on the Barnards. My mum's mother was Alice Barnard the daughter of Harry Barnard & Mary Ann Caroline Johnson. Harry was the son of Robert Barnard & Mary SPringall.
I do work sideways for ancestors which brought me to James & Harriet and their children. It was quite upsetting to find that 4 of their children died within weeks of each other. Do you have any idea what caused the deaths?

I guess I will eventually send for a d c for one of them...of course they may not have died of the same thing. I did inquire if there had been an epidemic at that time but it seems not.
I'd love to hear from you if you are interested. I have d c for William & Ann and my direct line. Alao the date of their wedding in Coltishall.

Regards

Maggie
