Edward Bottomley, mason, married Ann Tyzack at Wells on 25 December 1783. Their children, George and Sarah, were baptised in Wells in 1787 and 1796 respectively, although they had moved to East Dereham when their son Henry was baptised in 1799. Edward Bottomley was listed in Pigot’s Directory in Dereham in 1822-3. He is likely to be the ‘Mr. Bottomley of East Dereham’ who died in 1827. George Bottomley, presumably the son of Edward named above, was listed at Holl Lane, East Dereham, in Pigot’s Directory of 1830, and at Baxter’s Row in his census return of 1841 (Norfolk RO H0107/780).
A tablet of 1791 is signed ‘Bottomley’(5) and in 1812 a Bottomley was paid £13 8s 10d for the tablet to Edward Wright at Holkham (6).
