died after 1762
Thomas Fysh 1
farmer (1801) 2
of Clenchwarton, Norfolk 3
born circa 1745 4
baptized 25 March 1745, Cockley Cley 5
died 14 March 1821, West Lynn, St Peter 6
will dated 4 March 1819 7
and proved 30 October 1821
his will declares him to be 'late of West Lynn St. Peters, but now of the
City of London, gentleman', and mentions his brother Christopher Fysh
of King's Lynn, gent. and his friend Thomas Low of Bircham Tofts, farmer.
(info: Fysh collection - Norfolk Familly History Society)

His children as listed in his will are Thomas, Low, Francis, Christopher and
John Fysh - these were probably his surviving children at the time he made
the will, 4 March 1819. His will is signed with his initials, T.F. Stephanie
Fysh of Toronto provided, by email, some extra details and some additional
children but I do not know what her sources were:

Christopher Fysh
Francis Fysh
Low Fysh
Thomas Fysh, B. 1776; D. April 17, 1857
Hannah Fysh, B. November 4, 1781
Ann Fysh, B. February 22, 1786
John Fysh, B. 1795; D. 1875

In his article 'Goodbye Norfolk, I must leave you' in the Norfolk Ancestor,
December 1984, John P.G. Fysh states:

As far as can be ascertained, he did not take up business in King's Lynn
but farmed in the Marshland area where his seven children were born.
His five sons all left Norfolk, though the eldest, another Thomas, left only
towards the end of his life when all but one of his children had established
themselves in London.
