John & Elizabeth Greenacre, nee Warters

John Greenacre and his wife Elizabeth, nee Warters (also known as Waters) are buried in plot 16 in the Baptist graveyard at Oak Tree Close. John was baptised on 10th October 1819 at St Mary’s and so was probably born just before that. His parents were Richard Greenacre (1793-1866) & Elizabeth, nee Payne (1794-1886). Richard was a shoemaker and John followed him into the same trade. John married Elizabeth at St Nicholas Church, Great Yarmouth on 12th October 1842 and they lived throughout their married life at Repps Road and White Street where they raised at least seven children and John traded as a shoemaker. Elizabeth died on 28th November 1885 and John on 12th June 1905.
