BURIAL
NOTES
Walter James Watts presumably married Sarah Day and they probably lived somewhere in the North Walsham area. Walter junior was born because the family story is that "he never forgave his father for leaving his mother". Walter went to Canada. Sarah lived in an unofficial marriage partnership with Frederick Kettle and they had several children together. Walter came back from Canada and lived first at Pygnes farm, Bacton and then Bacton Wood Farm, Edingthorpe with Sarah and her brood.
