Jacob White and Rose Bunkall

St. Nicholas Church, Dereham

Another pair of my 4th great-grandparents, Jacob White and Rose Bunkall, married on 12 Nov 1805 at St. Nicholas Church, Dereham. Jacob, the son of Jacob White and Elizabeth Thompson, was baptised at All Saints ChurchShipdham, around five miles SSW of Dereham, on 23 Jul 1770 (where his parents had married just two months earlier on 19 May 1770). Rose, the daughter of William and Margaret Bunkall, was born in December 1766 and baptised at St. Nicholas Church, Dereham on 1 Feb 1767.

Jacob and Rose were already 35 and 38, respectively, at the time of the marriage, but are described as a single man and a single woman. The lateness probably accounts for why they appear to have had only one child: 
  1. William White, baptised on 20 Jul 1806 at St MargaretGarvestone
In 1841, Jacob White (70) was living South GreenMattishall (no record of what happened to Rose), which is not unexpected as this was where his son had married and lived at that time. Jacob died in the first quarter of 1844.
