  • Notes 
    • From the 1841 Census (HO107 Piece 766/3 Folio 7 Page 9) James, 6, was with his parents Mathew, 50, Agricultural Labourer, and Susannah, 30, at Marsh Road, Burgh, Norfolk, England. With him were his brothers Alfred, 20, Agricultural Labourer, George, 13, and William, 7. Also present was Susannah Atkins, 12, F(emale) S(ervant).

      From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 1807 Folio 269 Page 29) James, 16, Agricultural Labourer, was with his parents Mathew, 56, Agricultural Labourer, and Susan, 41, at Sick Lane, Burgh St. Margaret, Norfolk, England. With him were his brothers William, 17, Agricultural Labourer, and Frederic, 9 months.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 1196 Folio 105 Page 12) James, 25, Agricultural Labourer, was with his parents Mathew, 70, Agricultural Labourer, and Susanah, 50, at a Private House, Marsh Road, Flegg Burgh, Norfolk, England. With him were his wife Sarah, 21, and son John, 3 months.

      Name: SHREEVE, James; Record Type: Marriages; Quarter: March; Year: 1861; District: Flegg; County: Norfolk; Volume: 4b; Page: 39.

      Name: WEBSTER, Sarah; Record Type: Marriages; Quarter: March; Year: 1861; District: Flegg; County: Norfolk; Volume: 4b; Page: 39.

      James married Sarah Webster in 1861 and in the 1861 Census they have a son by the name of John Shreeve. Sarah died in 1866 and in the 1871 Census John's name was Webster and I can't find a birth record for a John Shreeve but there is one for a John Webster.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 1792 Folio 108 Page 22) James, widower, 34, Agricultural Labourer, was Out By the Common, Burgh St. Margaret and St. Mary, Norfolk, England. With him was his son John Webster, 10, and his daughter Margaret Shreeve, 8, both Scholars, along with unmarried housekeeper Hannah Barber, 29, and her daughter, Agnes Helen Barber, 2. It would appear from the Census Return that Agnes Helen Barber was also the daughter of James, but this is doubtful, though not impossible.

      Name: Shreeve, James; Record Type: Deaths; Age at death: 36; Quarter: June; Year: 1872; District: Flegg; County: Norfolk; Volume: 4b; Page: 23.
