Robert Harvey: An Overview

The information I have about Robert Harvey comes from the following sources:

1. Information supplied to me by Carla Woodworth Lynas and based on the 'Original Genealogical Collections, by the late Lieut. Col. Robert John Harvey of Thorpe'.  This is mentioned in a publication called 'Walter Rye, Memoir Bibliography and Catalogue of of his Norfolk Manuscripts in the Norwich Public Libraries' by Geo. A. Stephen published in 1929? by the Public Libraries Committee, Norwich.  Original documents in the Norfolk Archives.
2. Information from various websites on the internet including the website for the Norfolk Museums, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.


If anyone can add more information about Robert Harvey I would be very pleased to hear from you.


My interest in Robert Harvey is to find out more about his family and find the link to my ancestors Robert Harvey (1700-1756) of Stoke Ferry and Mary Harvey (nee Wheasenham, 1701?-1777).
