    It is Lawson Scarnell Fryer born in Hempnall Norfolk in 1824 and died Bermondsey St Olave's District 1892. He is my Great Great Grandfather. His father was Christmas Fryer born in Hempnall 25 December 1794. Christmas Fryer married (Twice in two different churches!) Lucy Scarnell daughter of Yeoman farmer Lawson Scarnell of "The Green Hempnall" who died in 1808. His will can be seen on the Norfolk Record Office NOAH on-line system...."The Green" is a road above Hempnall....Christmas Fryer farmed in Hempnall until the early 1870s....Lawson Scarnell Fryer did marry Ann Lawson (Charlady)...They had a son William Lawson Fryer born 1852 11th May in Bermondsey Workhouse died Walthamstow 1940...He married Mary Ann Pennington 26th May 1876 St James Bermondsey...We do not know if the "Lawson" was a perpetuation of Lawson Scarnell of Hempnall Yeoman or was derived from Ann Lawson (Above)...William Lawson Fryer became a Navy pensioner and the Census records him as a pensioner in 1829...William Lawson Fryer and his wife had my Grandfather Jack Fryer and amongst others he and his wife Alice Rose had my mother Kathleen Fryer and her brother also called William Lawson Fryer....

    Sorry a pensioner aged 29! I was told they all lived at one time at Keaton Road Bermondsey and I was taken there as a biy aged about 4..I recall tall houses and a road lined with trees. Keaton Road is still there and lined with trees but all the houses are new...

    Might be a fostering arrangement from the Bermondsey (St Olave's) Workhouse...Lawson Scarnell Fryer son of farmer Christmas Fryer of Hempnall Norfolk and my Gt Gt Grandfather had a son William Lawson Fryer who was my Gt Grandfather and he was born in Bermondsey Workhouse 11th May 1852 and died in Chester Road Walthamstow 1940....Lawson Scarnell Fryer also had Charles Jonathan Fryer born Southwark 1862...Elizabeth A Fryer born Southwark 1865 and Sarah J Fryer born Southwark 1868... Lawson Scarnell Fryer my Gt Gt Grandfather and his family at a time lived in Storey Street the Borough and then at White Hart Yard which I think is Borough..My Grandfather Jack Fryer son of William Lawson Fryer told me that his Grandfather had a fish barrow which he kept in White Hart Yard and buried some money under a cobblestone and that his father ie Jack Fryer's father William Lawson Fryer had dug the stone up and kept the money after the old man died...My Grandfather Jack Fryer told me that his fishhawking Grandfather was Irish and for years I thought Fryer was Irish but I see now Grandad Jack Fryer must have meant the father of Mary Ann Pennington born Holborn in 1855...William Lawson Fryer Married Mary Ann Pennington at St James Bermondsey on 26th March 1876...She died in Edmonton September 1897..I have posted some photos of the Fryers on "Roots Chat" website which can often be reached by Googling "Fryer Family of Hempnall"...William Lawson Fryer and family lived in Keaton Road Bermondsey and aged 29 he is described in a Census as a "Pensioner"...His trade was boilermaker but he was for a while in the Royal Navy and was invalided out hence the Pension..William Lawson Fryer joined the Royal Navy on 11th May 1870 but was inavlided out on 4th July 1874...

    The ancestral home of Lawson Scarnell Fryer and Christmas Fryer and Lawson Scarnell Junior was Chestnut Tree Farm, "The Green" Hempnall Norfolk...It was the farm owned by Lawson Scarnell Senior who died in 1808....His widow lived on for another 40 years...There is a will and other docs on "Norfolk Sources" under Probate being the will of Lawson Scarnell (1808) and various affidavits by Christmas Fryer regarding his deceased wife's portion of the Estate which something happened to in 1849....The Estate was not to be distributed until Mrs Lawson Scarnell died....Thus Christmas Fryer's kids by his wife Lucy daughter of Lawson Scarnell Senior had to wait until 1849 for their money...About six of them shared about £100...."The Green" Hempnall in those days meant "Great Green" now known as "Silver Green" and so Chestnut Tree Farm about 9.50 acres is today Chestnute Tree Farm, Road Green, Hempnall, Norfolk. The main farm and house and plot over the road is occupupied by Dye's timber yard and saw mills..You can get it on Google-Earth....Christmas Fryer and second wife Ann Rackham lived in Wortwill near Harleston, Norfolk in 1861...Christmas died in Norwich 2nd Feb 1874..Christmas Fryer's father was William Fryer who married Mary Bowles possibly daughter of Thomas Bowles of Hempnall...With his he had Thomas Fryer, William Fryer Jnr and Charles ledger Fryer...William Fryer Senior married again Bridget (Biddy) Beckett...She was the mother of Christmas Fryer...Christmas Fryer's half-brother Thomas Fryer owned a property in Hempnall in 1802 in which lived a "William Fryer"...William Fryer Senior died in the village poor cottage just over the road from St Margaret's Hempnall aged 75-76 in 1842-3....Thomas Fryer, half brother to Christmas Fryer, made good in Great Yarmouth marrying Keziah Bultitude (See Mormon website)...They had a son Hezekiah Thomas Fryer baptised St Nicholas Gt Yarmouth 1813...Also a daughter Mary Ann Fryer who married John Thomas Clifton (See Mormons)...They had a son Hezekiah Thomas Fryer Clifton born 1828 died Teddington/Kingston on Thames 1915....The will of Thomas Fryer 1849 is on "Norfolk Sources" website under Probate...He owned four tenements, a blacksmith and wheelwwight's with accomodation above, a house in Ferry Boat Row and also a share in Great Yarmouth Cemetery where he had a family tomb or vault...The will can be viewed and save and I find it easier to read in the programme "Paint"....Let me know if you want more!!!!
