An example is the subject of The Murch Blog’s “J is for Jerom Murch 1807-1895”. He was born in Honiton, Devon, England, but married a Norfolk lass. This would be confusing (Norfolk is hundreds of miles away), unless I had done some more research on him and included local history. Jerom started as a Unitarian minister – in Norfolk!
The Society for One-Place Studies or the Register of One-Place Studies may well be able to help. If the place you want to research isn’t already being studied – maybe you would like to join and start your own Study!
