Fascinating stuff - the only bit of family folklore involved is of a meeting with Baden Powell during the Boer War and his instructions on how to make jam tin grenades.

Now that's one Scouting badge I would not have minded getting :lol:

Memories and Poppies: The Men from the Norfolk Registration District of Depwade Who Lost Their Lives in World War One Paperback – Apr 2006

by Ian J. Cruickshank (Author).
I'm working from the War Memorials book produced jointly by the Eastern Daily Press & Jarrolds Printing Works and the pictures held at the Norfolk County Picture Archive, as well as the more mainstream sources, so would be good to know if this holds anything additional.

For anyone researching those from the parish of Ryburgh in Norfolk, Ryburgh Remembers is a cross community project primarily aimed at researching those named on the 3 War Memorials in the village of Great Ryburgh. For each of the fallen, it is planned to mark the centenary of their passing with a special peal of the bells of St Andrew to which descendants are invited. All the research is displayed on-line and in St Andrew's and a community woodland has been planted, with feature trees dedicated to individual servicemen by family members.

The Ryburgh Remembers project is sharing the information it discovers about those from/with a connection to the parish via the following web site http://www.standrewsgreatryburgh.org.uk/world-war-1-commemorations/

We are also using social media as it has proved as useful tool in finding information and sharing resources. Facebook Ryburgh Village Amenity Group and twitter @ryburghaction #ryburghremembers

The researchers welcome contact via any of these platforms.

Not Norfolk War memorials, but I have been researching the Cheshire Yeomanry. They were stationed in Norfolk from September 1914 until March 1916 (when they sailed for Egypt). There duties were coastal defence and I've been posting some of their stories of life in the Norfolk camps at the time - one of the men was my grandfather. This post covers 'Life with the Cheshire Yeomanry in camp at Kirby Cane, Norfolk, September 1914'.

Hopefully this is of interest and does not divert too far from the discussion.

Great Work, ( and another village I can put to the back of my list to boot :-)

Just had a quick look.

Page on the Hipkin names on the Roll of Honour.

http://www.standrewsgreatryburgh.org.uk/world-war-1-commemorations/those-who-served/everard-barnard-hubart-hipkin.php

On the 1912 Norfolk Electoral Register there is a George Hipkin recorded at one of a number of dwellings at High House Farm, Litcham, which I suspect is the dwelling the family were at on the 1911 census.

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2CM6-V8V

He doesn't appear on the 1913 / 14 / 15 registers for Litcham, but suddenly there is a George Hipkin recorded in a dwelling House at The Village, Testerton. Normally moves are marked as "successive" as there were general minimum residency requirements in order to be able to vote so once that was satisfied you could port it around with you and not have to re-fulfil it unless you lost your right to vote. However, in this case there doesn't appear to be an earlier appearance of a George in Testerton on the 1912 electoral register..

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2H15-63M

For Everard Barnard Hipkin who was Killed in Action on the 2nd November 1916, the War Diary reads:-

1st & 2nd November 1916 Trenches

Battalion remained in the trenches north of POZIERES. These two days were quiet and nothing unusual happened.

3rd November 1916.

During the afternoon and evening the Battalion were relieved by the 11th Bn. Royal Fusiliers. Relief of the Support and Reserve Companies was carried out without any casualties but “A” and “D” Companies had 3 casualties during relief.

Relief was complete about 11 pm.

Battalion proceeded to ALBERT and billeted there for the night. Battalion Headquarters being at 47 Rue de Bapaume.

Appendix 6 for that month however shows the casualties by day.

1st is 4 O.R.’s killed, one wounded

2nd is 4 O.R’s wounded

3rd is 2 O.R’s killed and two wounded.

BTW, the Soldiers Died in the Great War has him down as Everard "Bernard" Hubert Hipkin while the General Registrars Office has him as Everard Barnard H Hipkin in the Birth Index which several genealogy sites, probably working from the same transcription service, have mis-transcribed as Edward Barnard H.Hipkin.

Finally - the member of the family the site has down as 2154 Private James Richard Hipkin, 2nd Battalion. From the index cards and medal rolls it looks like Private 2154 of the Norfolks was a William Erisday. I think the soldier you're after is Private 25415 James R Hipkin

http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D2883189

If he doesn't have a date in Theatre on his MIC then he would have gone out after the end of 1915 as a replacement and would have seen service solely in the Mesopotamia Theatre. This would have meant he avoided being besieged at Kut and the subsequent death march and mal-treatment of the Prisoners of War.

Hope some of that helps - I'm finding the Electoral Registers a good way to keep track of families between the census and the Family Search site has a good selection for Norfolk centred on the period 1880 to 1915,

regards,

Peter

Peter,

Thank you for the additional information regarding Everard Hipkin and particularly the war diary entry. Below are my provisional notes so far about him. His family is quite extended and complicated and we're also trying to confirm if John Bone and Everard were indeed 1st cousins, hence the family tree, as we try to work out which line to follow.

Private Everard Barnard Hipkin was one of 9 children born to George Henry Hipkin of Syderstone and Jane Savage of South Raynham. George and Jane were married in South Raynham in 1876. It would appear that much of their early life was spent in Mileham and Litcham before moving to Testerton Cottages some time after 1911. Everard was born in 1893 and had two brothers George James born 1883 and Albert Victor born 1890 who also enlisted. It would appear that the Hipkin family has been connected with Norfolk and particularly Syderstone since 1711 beginning with James Hipkin.
THE HIPKIN FAMILY/TIMELINE - (ALL STILL TO BE DOUBLE CHECKED)
We begin the Hipkin family tree with James in 1711. James had a son Stephen b. c 1740 in Honingham Norfolk. Stephen and Sarah Spencer b. c 1741 in Honingham had a son James who was born about 1770 in Syderstone. This James married Ann Pilch (b. c Apr 1770 in North Walsham) in Syderstone c Feb 1795. James and Ann went on to have 15 children, sadly many of which appear to have died in infancy. The 3rd and 6th born were both called James after their father. The 6th child James Hipkin was b. c Sep 1803 in Syderstone and he married Sarah Simpson c Dec 1824 in Syderstone. James and Sarah went on to have 8 children, of which the 2nd born was John c Apr 1827.
John Hipkin married Mary Ann Adcock (b. c 1825 Fakenham d c Jan 1881) c Nov 1851 and they had 5 children - George Henry b c July 1852, Arthur Richard b c July 1856, Sophia b c Nov 1858, Ann Eliza b c Jun 1862, Robert b c 1873.
17 November 1875 Robert Rudd Bone married Mary Hipkin.
2 December 1876 George Henry Hipkin (born c. July 1852 son of John & Mary Ann Hipkin) of Syderstone and Jane Savage (daughter of John Savage) of South Raynham were married in South Raynham.
3rd quarter 1877 Birth registered of Frederick 'John' Bone he was the eldest son of Robert and Mary in a family of 5, 4 of whom survived infancy. A first cousin to Everard and his siblings?
Jan 1881 John Hipkin died.
1883 George James born.
1890 Albert Victor born.
1891 Census. Mileham Parish - Bilney Road. George Henry Hipkin Head Age 35 Farm Labourer, Jane Wife age 38, Anna W age 14, Arthur H age 12, John H age 10, George J age 8, Emma J age 5, Lily L age 2 & Albert age 7months.
1893 Everard Barnard born Mileham.
31 Mar 1901 Census. Mileham Parish. George Hipkin Head age 46 born Syderstone Farm Labourer, Jane Wife age 47 born East Raynham, Arthur H age 22 Farm Larbourer, John age 20 Farm Labourer, George age 17 Farm Labourer, Emma age 15, Lily age 13, Albert age 11 & Everard age 8.
14 September 1914 Albert Victor enlisted Norwich as 15152 Private Norfolk Regiment. Did Albert and Everard enlist the same day as their service numbers are separated by just 2?
30 November 1914 Albert Victor discharged - medically unfit Tuberculosis of the right lung.
11 August 1915 Everard Barnard posted to France.
March 1916 Albert Victor died aged 25.
2 November 1916 Everard Barnard Killed In Action or should that be Died of Wounds?
10 May 1917 G/9287 Private Frederick John Bone 6th Battalion Royal West Surrey Regiment died aged 39.

My understanding of first cousins would be that George Henry, the father of Everard, and Mary, the mother of John, would have to be brother and sister. That would make George Henry the uncle of John, and Mary the aunt of Everard. Having done some digging, I don't think that's the case - your probably looking at the removal business, (as in first cousin twice removed, etc., :-)

The Mary Hipkin who married Robert Rudd Bone on the 17th November 1875 at St Andrew, Great Ryburgh was the daughter of James Hipkin, a Labourer. Mary was single, aged 28 and living at Little Ryburgh.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/5510e3cee93790332eed6aaa?search_id=56b3de364325a67567001388

George Henry was probably the son of John and Mary Ann Hipkin - however the reported ages and place of birth of the most likely individual do vary as you go through the various official documents. I'm putting that down to the fact that when George Henry signs his census return in 1911 he does so with "X (his mark)"

For what its worth:-

Having first found George on the 1891 census and then confirmed it on the 1901 census, I then started to back-track him through earlier records .

Potential births registered with the Civil Authorities – note this was not compulsory at this time.

The birth of a George Henry Hipkin was registered in the Walsingham District in the July to September quarter, (Q3) of 1852.

However, the baptism of a George Henry Hipkin took place at All Saints, Tattersett on the 11th July 1852. As usual, no date of birth is recorded, but potentially could be the same as the child who had a civil registration. Parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John’s occupation, like so many at that time, is recorded as Labourer.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/55988163f493fd3d29011e2d?search_id=56b3ba2e4325a675670010cc

There are no other obvious baptisms of a George Henry Hipkin in Norfolk in the online sources. Checking the Norfolk Baptismal project there is an intriguing possible at Syderstone when I looked to see if there was a mis-spelling of the surname or even if he had been baptised with a different surname. This was a George Henry Everard Bower who was baptised on the 7th November 1869. However this was the child of the curate and his wife.

 

There is no obvious birth of a George Henry Hipkin that ties in with the ages he gives on the later censuses.

1861 Census

There are two possibles – a 10 year old George, born Syderstone, who was recorded living with his parents James, (43) and Elizabeth, (40) at a Cottage at Frickers Yard, Syderstone, and 9 year old George , born Tattersett, who was the son of John and Mary and living at Wicken Pond, Tattesett. This last one would tie up with the age on the civil registration, the location for the baptism, and the address ties in with the place of birth that George gives on the 1891 census. (Neither age would however tie up with a birth in 1852).

John was then aged 35 and an Agricultural Labourer from Syderstone. His wife Mary, aged 31, was from Fakenham. Their other children at this time were Arthur, (5,) and Sophia,(2), both born Tattersett.

The Baptism of Arthur Richard Hipkin took place at All Saints, Tattersett on the 13th July 1856. His parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John was a Labourer.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/55988163f493fd3d29011ea6?search_id=56b3d5dc4325a67567001306

The burial of a Arthur Hipkin, aged 7, took place at Syderstone St Mary on the 2nd March 1863.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/55105dade93790f8ad0cd7d5?search_id=56b3da084325a6756700134e

The Baptism of a Sophia Hipkin took place at St Margaret, Tatterford on the 8th August 1858. Her parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John was a Labourer.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/5510e94de93790332efe971e?search_id=56b3d5dc4325a67567001306

The burial of a Sophia Hipkin, aged 3 months, took place at Tattersett, All Saints on the 6th November 1858.

http://freereg2.freereg.org.uk/search_records/55107243e93790f8ad3760ff?search_id=56b3da084325a6756700134e

1871 Census

The 18 year old George, an unmarried Labourer from Gasteolna(?), Norfolk, who was living with his parents at The Street, Syderstone. They are John, (46, a Labourer from Syderstone) and Mary, (42, from Fakenham). Other children living with them are:-

Eliza…….aged 9…………born Fakenham

Arthur….aged 6………..born Syderstone

Thomas..aged 4……….born Syderstone

Herbert..aged 1……….born Syderstone

The Baptism of Ann Eliza Hipkin took place at All Saints, Tattersett on the 1st June 1862. Her parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John was a Labourer.

I couldn’t find the baptism for the second Arthur, or even another male child of John and Mary who might have been given the family name of Arthur following the death of his older brother.

The Baptism of Thomas Hipkin took place at St Mary, Syderstone on the 1st June 1862. His parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John was a Labourer. The family live at Syderstone.

The Baptism of Herbert Edward Hipkin took place at St Mary, Syderstone on the 2nd January 1870. His parents were John and Mary Anne Hipkin. John was a Labourer. The family live at Syderstone.

The marriage of a George Henry Hipkin to a Jane Savage took place at “South Rainham”, Norfolk on this day. His father was John Hipkin. Hers was John Savage.

1881 Census

There is a 27 year old George, an Agricultural Labourer from Syderstone, who was recorded as the married head of the household of a dwelling at Mileham. He lives there with his wife Jane, (26 and from Raynham, Norfolk), and their children:-

Thomas……….aged 9…………..born Raynham

Anna……………aged 3…………..born Mileham

Arthur………….aged 2…………..born Mileham

John H………….aged 3 months…born Mileham.

Note Thomas would have been born before the marriage.

The baptism of Anna Maria Hipkin, born 8th March 1877, took place at St Mary, Syderstone on the 15th April 1877. Parents were George, a Labourer, and Jane.

1891 Census

George Henry Hipkin, aged 35 and a Farm Labourer born “Wicken”, Norfolk, was recorded as the married head of the household at Field House Farm Cottage, Mileham. He lives there with his wife Jane, (aged 38 and from South Raynham), as well as their children:-

Anna M……….aged 14……….born Syderstone

Arthur H………aged 12……….born Mileham

John H…………aged 10………..born Mileham

George L………aged 8………….born Mileham

Emma J………..aged 5………….born Mileham

Lucy L………….aged 2…………..born Mileham

Albert Victor..aged 7 months…born Mileham

That age does not tie back to the George in the enquiry. Wicken is presumably Wicken Green, to the east-south-east of Syderstone.

1901 Census

The family have been recorded as Hipkins on this census. Father George is recorded as aged 46, an Ordinary Agricultural Labourer from Syderstone. His wife Jane, (39?), is now recorded as born East Raynham.

Children still at home are Arthur H, (22, Ordinary Agricultural Labourer), John, (20, Ordinary Agricultural Labourer), George, (17, Ordinary Agricultural Labourer), Emma, (15), Lily, (13), Albert, (11), plus new addition, Everard, (aged 8 – born Mileham).

1911 Census

George Henry was then aged 55 and his wife Jane was 58. The couple have been married 31 years and have had 9 children, of which 8 were then still alive.

Hope some of that helps,

regards,

Peter

Hi,

I'm late to this party, as normal. However I do have a copy of the 'Norfolk Roll of Honour' and have done some work on some of the villages, including some of the more obscure ones (I should make it clear that the work was from the book, not the actual memorials, which sometimes differ). If you have a list of the villages you are interested in you would be welcome to whatever help I could give.

Mike.

Hi Mike,

Are you going to be brave and see how many people you can wind up by telling them their village is obscure on an internet forum :-)

Seriously there are more than enough memorials in Norfolk that could do with a with a bit more than a photograph and a list of names - I've got circa 40 alone that I've not even started researching, although some are adequately covered elsewhere. I've just had a quick trawl through and it looks like:-

Attleborough

Blofield

Braydeston

Buxton

Caistor St Edmunds

Carleton Forehoe

Catfield

Denton

East Dereham

Forncett St Peter

Great Plumstead

Great Yarmouth - Great War

Hemblington

Hempnall

Horsford

Kimberley

Little Plumstead

Loddon

Mattishall

Mundham

New Buckenham

North Burlingham

North Lopham

North Walsham

Norwich - New Catton

Norwich - St Marks New Lakenham

Norwich - St Michael Coslany, (part)

Paston

Ranworth

Ridlington

Saxlingham Nethergate

Sheringham

South Burlingham

South Lopham

Spixworth

Sutton

Swardeston

Tasburgh

Thorpe St Andrew - church, (already posted memorial on the Green)

Trimingham

Trowse Newton

Witton (near Norwich)

Yaxham

Morning Peter,

Yes, I do have a reckless streak - which appears only when I'm miles away from whoever I have upset!

Will look through the list and see if I have done anything on any of them.

Mike.

Peter,

Before I started checking the work completed on the book I checked the memorials I actually have photographs of. I have Catfield, Denton and Horsford. If you would like photos and the relevant 'Word' sheets please contact and I will forward.

Peter,

I have now checked my files and appear to have something on Blofield, Braydeston, Buxton, Carleton Forehoe, Hemblington, Hempnall, Kimberley, Mattishall, Mundham, Ranworth, Ridlington, Saxlingham Nethergate, Sutton, Tasburgh and Yaxham (as from the Roll of Honour book, not from actual memorials).

If these are of interest please contact and I will forward singularly.

Mike.

Peter,

Been off watch for a little while, but thank you for the additional information regarding the Hipkin family. I'll digest that and see where it leads us. Out of interest, do you need any photographs of Stibbard? I'll be at All Saints Church tomorrow and will be taking pictures of the War Memorial and the CWGC grave of Private John Henry Thompson Essex Regiment.

Best

Steve
