William White (b. 1834, bap. 26 Jun 1836 in Mattishall), son of William White and Ann Francis, married Susan Lynes, on 21 Apr 1856, at St John the Baptist, Lakenham, Norwich. Susan lists her father as Thomas Lynes, Gamekeeper, but I haven't found any record of a baptism. In 1851, Susan Lynes, then 26 (birth year estimated as 1825) from South Creake, Norfolk was Servant to the Curate of Thorpe, Thorpe St Andrew
