David Minns and Hannah Marsh

St Remigius Church, Hethersett, Norfolk

David Minns (bap. 5 Sep 1755 in Hethersett, Norfolk), son of John Minns and his wife Elizabeth, married Hannah Marsh (bap. 18 Feb 1759, in Hellesdon, Norfolk), daughter of Robert Marsh and Hannah Piggin, on 20 Feb 1775, in the parish of Newington St Mary - or Newington-Butts, 'in the the hundred of Brixton and of the county of Surrey, 1¾ mile (S.) from London'. 

Nevertheless, this pair of my 5th great-grandparents appear to then set up home in Hethersett, Norfolk, where their first child was baptised.
  1. Robert Marsh Minns bap. 19 Nov 1776 in Hethersett
  2. Hannah Minns bap. 12 Mar 1792 in Heigham
  3. David Minns b. 19 Jan 1799, bap. 20 Jan 1799 in Heigham
They'd moved to Heigham, on the west side of Norwich by the time their daughter Hannah was baptised. With such large gaps between them, there may have been other children, but I've found no records for any others.

David Minns died in 1835 and was buried at St Martin at Oak, Norwich.

There is a Hannah Minns of the right vintage lodging in the household of James and Elizabeth Morrison, in Cross Lane, St George Colegate, Norfolk, in 1841. And a death of Hannah Minns (86) in Norwich in 1843.
