from L&M Companion: Norbury
Norbury. Relatives: in 1665 living in Islington. George Norbury had married Sarah Sutton, sister of Mary, wife of William Wight [Sam's dad's half-brother]. His wife had a house and land in Brampton, and sold some land there in 1664--possibly the property offered to Pepys in 1662....Mary Wight in her will (1696) forgave him a debt of L500 used for the purchase of land at Brampton. He may be the Geeorge Norbury (son of John) admitted to Gray's Inn 1639. In 1665 his daugher Katherine (of Islington) married Robert Woolley.
