Child of John and Mary:

WILLIAM VOUT born in 1760 or 1761 at Cawston.

Note: From his age at burial William Vout was born around 1760. The only records about for a William born during that period is at Cawston where there are three! One born to a Joseph has been discounted as he appears to have died young but the other two are both sons of a John and Mary. These are also the names of William Vout's first two children. The real problem is there were two John Vouts both with a wife Mary having children baptised in Cawston.

It appears Vout is an old Welsh surname but it was originally of German origin. By the seventeenth century the name was in use in both Holland and France. In England this surname was perculiar to Norfolk and the earliest records, at the moment, seem to be from Norwich and the northern part of the county around the Blickling area.
