    findmypast look up

    As the name I am researching is very rare in this country, I was intrigued to see that on findmypast on the 1861 census there was a listing for a John and Rebecca Quanstrom. As i only have Ancestry, could someone have a quick look at the transcripts, if only to prove that the surname is correct.

    Thanks Linda

        I agree that the image looks like Quinton. He was b Norwich, and she was b Wymondham (which is pronounced Windam).

        Before writing them off, it's worth considering that the Norfolk accent is inclined to abbreviate/simplify names. Quinton would be a lot easier to say than Quanstrom... tho' that would be quite a radical change.

          As far as we are aware, there is only one Quanstrom family in England, and are all descended from a Swedish immigrant in the late 1800s. I know there are quite a few in the US, and sometimes the name crops up randomly, but there doesn't seem to be another established family. Although, if anyone knows differently, please do let me know, cos I'd love to meet someone else with the name!
