Re: Ransome family Hastings East Sussex 1874
My Ransome family seem to be from Great Hockham, Norfolk. That is where my William Ransome was buried (in Holy Trinity Churchyard) on 6 May 1829.
My great grandfather was Arthur Horace Ransome born 19 Dec 1868 in Hockham (this is near Thetford). His father was Charles born 14 Sep 1835 in Hockham. His father was George born in Griston in 1798. His father was the above William born cir 1761 (don't know birth place).
Does not seem to be a direct connection with yours at present. I now live in America so English research is more difficult. Karl.
