Note: A Henry Osborne was baptised at Sudbury on 25 Feb 1715, but there appears to be no link to 1 Henry below. Henry of Sudbury (the son of Robert and Sarah Osborne) would have been only 17 when he married, but of course it could be that he was several years old when baptised. Sudbury is however a long way from Norton. This is the only Henry I can find in Suffolk at the right time.

The 1673 hearth tax return for Norton shows a John Osborne with 2 hearths, a Thomas Osborne sharing 2 hearths with John Linge and a widow Osborne both certified as being too poor to pay tax but having 2 hearths, shared with Widow Taylor.

Going further back, the 1381 tax returns show the following: Galfredus Osbern, labourer at Wordwell, Sfk, Galfredus Osbern junior, farmer at Wordwell, Sfk, Robertus Ossebern farmer at Finborough, Sfk (taxed 2/6d) Johanna Osbern taxed 12d at Old Newton, Sfk Johannes Osbern taxed 2/0d at Saxham, Sfk, Johannes Osbern, labourer at Chevington Sfk and Margaret his wife, and Agnes Osbern taxed 12d at Chevington. One of these may be an ancestor but many rolls are missing from the Suffolk tax returns for 1381.
