I have a Thorny/Thorney BUSH (son of Francis Bush and Ann Smith) baptized in 1698 in Hingham, Norfolk, England. He was arrested in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England for stealing a Sheep. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to being deported to The British Colonies in Maryland (Baltimore Co.) on 13 Oct 1735. His death was after 1745 probably in Baltimore Co., MD. I did find a marriage for him on 24 Aug 1745 in Baltimore Co., MD, but do not know if he had been married previously in England. I suspect that he was the father of my ancestor Shadach/Shadrack Bush but have been unable to link them. I have on several occasions hired a professional researcher in England but without any significant results. Shadach/Shadrack was married in about 1766 in Baltimore Co., MD and apparently had only one child. I pretty much have all the family histories of all the American born descendants of this family. Any help out there please? Thanks!

LDS Family Search shows a baptism of Anne Bush, daughter of Thorney and Susan Bush, June 24th, 1734, St. John, Stanton, Suffolk. Stanton is about 9 miles from Bury St. Edmunds. This record may be worth following up.

Thank you! Yes that is a very good clue. I might have to employ the services of a professional researcher in England again!

Family Search also shows a Mary Bush, baptised October 6th, 1729, at Parish of Troston, Suffolk; parents are "Thornhaugh" Bush and Susannah. Troston is about 5 miles northeast of Bury St. Edmunds and 5 and 1/2 miles from Stanton. From Hingham to Stanton is about 24 miles. Maybe Thorney's original given name is Thornhaugh?
