Re: Remblance/Remnants of Norfolk

Hello there. Sorry about the tardy reply. Work has been very hectic.
Thanks for replying to the original posting. I listed the surname Remblance as well as I presume Remnants may be a variation of this. The surname REMNANT appears to be a Sussex, Surrey surname. Whether there is any relationship there I don't know but I doubt it.
My 5x great-grandmother was a Maria WEBB nee Remnants. She married William Webb in Ditchingham in 1813. In the 1851 census her place of birth is listed as Ditchingham in c1791-2 but I haven't found her baptism as of yet. There are a couple of other Remnants mentioned in the registers of the area but not Maria.
If any of this seems familiar please do not hesitate to contact me. Festive greetings to you, Dominic
