1809. John Saunders Beverly was baptised on 8/3/1809 in Lynn to John & Elisabeth [ Wilkins] - FMP Norfolk Baptisms. According to FS, residence was Little Plumstead, Norfolk! . Have not found baptisms for any siblings . No indication of where the Saunders came from- not the maiden name of his mother nor that of his paternal grandmother . Maybe that of Elisabeth Wilkins' mother?? - could investigate her further one day!

Curiously- Ancestry- a John Saunders Beverley was baptised Middleton Norfolk in 1834 to John, schoolmaster, & Elizabeth Beverley?? . Could he be their firstborn- yet occupation strange!- who died 1834-1838?? Middleton ~8 k SE of Kings Lynn . Burial below makes this a possibility
