Looking for NORTON of London, Horsell, Tasberg, UK

I hit a wall after going back to my GGG Grandfather
Here it is in reverse order
Francis Henry Norton, born Tasberg (near Bath) around 1790
Henry Francis Norton, Mayfair (London) 1819
Harry George Norton St. James Westminster (london) 1851
Alfred Mortimore Norton West Hoboken New Jersey USA 1890
Alfred John Norton West Hoboken New Jersey USA 1912
(Me)Brian James Norton Ridgewood New Jersey USA 1955

Francis was married to a woman named Margaret
Henry married Amy Searle
Harry married Jessie O'Brien in Canada
Alfred M. married Margaret Hannan
Alfred J. married Anne Loftus

Francis worked in some compacity for the "Queen's" household. I could find no futher info in that regard.
Henry opened a shop (Boot and brush making) in partnership with a man named Frost. They had a shop in London at 1 York Street St. James for quite some time. The Nortons also live in the town of Horsell, in Surrey.

Harry emmigrated to Canada, then to the US sometime in 1879. He settled in Boston for a time, then to New Jersey, back to the UK, then back to New jersey.

Alfred M. was a postman who died very young in the great Influenza epidemic of 1919.

If any of this sounds familiar to your tree, please let me know.

Thanks and Peace

Brian J Norton
