Hi I have been collecting info over the years on one side of my family that came from north Norfolk, and came across your Salthouse site, and more importantly for me, the link to the Kelling School.
My great, great grandfather, Samuel Wright, ran what was called the Kelling Arms public house in The Street, Kelling. He took over as the Innkeeper in 1897, and my family ran it until 1957.
She only had one child, my grandfather, also called Samuel, who was captured in north Africa in the second world war and made a prisoner of war in Italy and then Germany. She then lived in that row of cottages by the bridge on Bridge Road.
He was repatriated to the Kelling Sanatorium with T. It would be the last one on the left coming from Kelling.
I think the other sister may have been Ellen, whose death in 1947 is recorded at North Walsham.
Anyway, I don't know if this is of any help to you, or me just sounding off. A few years ago I was embarking on my family tree research and contacted your excellent website regarding three teacher sisters called Harrison who retired to Salthouse in the 1940s.
I have since found out a lot more about them and they also appear in two stories on your website - one about the windmill and one by Pamela Hayward who remembered the sisters.
I remember staying there as a kid in the 1970's, having sherry, her wonderful gingerbread cake, a potty under the bed and where the toilet was a outhouse in the garden.
She moved to a warden controlled home in Sheringham in the late 70's, but I don't think she liked it too much. She was a tiny little lady, under 5ft, and it breaks my heart now to think of her, and her pain of losing both her husband and son.
