Andrew Jarvis, of Marshland St James, was killed after his car left the road on November 24 Now his fiance Micha McGuffog has paid an emotional tribute to Mr Jarvis, who worked at Palm Paper in Lynn. Ms McGuffog said: I met Andrew at a local pub in October 2007 and we lived together in the village of Marshland St James with our four-year-old son Alfie. Andrew was an extremely hardworking fianc and daddy.

He was at his happiest spending time with us, taking us to local indoor play centres, to the beach or out for a family meal. Andrew has left a huge void in our lives and also to all those who knew him. Pat, John and Vicky Jarvis Andrew s mother, father and sister have also paid tribute.

The family said: Andrew started school at Wormegay Primary School and lived with us throughout his childhood, and as a teenager moved to Fincham and attended Downham Market High School. On leaving school, Andrew acquired an apprenticeship in carpentry then moved on to Williams Refrigeration in Downham Market and on to Palm Paper in King s Lynn. He will be deeply missed as a son, dad, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and nephew but never forgotten.

Andrew s funeral is on Tuesday, December 15, at 2.30pm at Mintlyn Crematorium in Lynn. The family have asked for no flowers and for donations to be split between the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity trust and Alfie, Andrew s son. Have you got something to share on the story?

Norfolk Parish Records to go Online on …

The following announcement was written by the folks at 1 : TheGenealogist and the Norfolk Record Office announce that they have signed an agreement to make Norfolk parish and other historical records available online for the first time. The registers of baptisms, marriages, burials and banns of marriage feature the majority of the parishes in Norfolk. On release the searchable transcripts will be linked to original images of baptism, marriage and burial records from the parish registers of this East Anglian county Some of the surviving records are from the early 1500s These vital records will allow family history researchers from all over the world to search for their Norfolk ancestors online for the first time Famous people that can be found in these records include: Samuel Lincoln, the great-great-great-great-grandfather of Abraham Lincoln, 18th President of the United States of America, can be discovered in the baptismal records of St Andrew, Hingham in Norfolk for the 24th August 1622.

At some point his entry has been highlighted with a star. Samuel Lincoln baptismal record Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, who lost his life at the Battle of Trafalgar. This impoverished clergyman s son can be discovered in the register for Burnham Thorpe in 1758.

There his father, as rector of the parish, would have officiated at all the baptisms that year in this church with his name appearing at the bottom of the page. Horatio Lord Nelson s baptism record Viewing an image of the actual parish register reveals that the young Horatio Nelson was firstly baptised privately in October 1758, just a week after being born and then given a second public baptism in the middle of November. This practice was carried out for sickly babies who were not expected to survive and begs the question of how different British history would have been had he died as an infant.

Fascinatingly, by looking at the actual image of the page there are some additions to his entry that have been penned in the margin years later. These notes, reputedly to be by his brother the Rev William Nelson, 1st Earl Nelson, celebrated the honours that his brother received in his adult life. He ends it with the latin quote caetera enarret fama which translates as others recount the story .
