SAL­TER/Suf­folk and Nor­folk

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

Wil­liam Rut­ter­ford mar­ried Mary Sal­ter in Lak­en­heath, Suf­folk, on 6 Jan­uary 1833. On all census records, her place of birth is shown as Wil­ton (Hockwold cum Wil­ton), Nor­folk, about five miles away. Her birth is shown as around 1817, mak­ing her 16 at the date of mar­riage. We can find no trace what­so­ever of a bap­tism within a 50-mile ra­dius. The only clue is that a Joseph Sal­ter (born 1811 in Ire­land) is shown as liv­ing in Hockwold cum Wil­ton in 1841. Was he an el­der brother? Did Mary’s mother re­marry? How can I get past this brick wall? Phil McLeod, by email
