I've completed the merge, since both profile managers had approved it.  If there are sources other than the ancestry tree, it would be good to add some to the profile.

Scarburgh, although the names vary by generation. Same family.
answered by Gerald Jones G2G6 (6.1k points)
I've been looking and apart from other online trees. I can only find latter members of this North Walsham family .These use the spelling Scarburgh .

as for example

A consultation document for the County Council (of all things) has a potted history of the family and also uses the name Scarburgh
The Scarburgh family were probably  the leading North Walsham
family, a family of lawyers, who are known to have lived in the town until
the late 17th century. John Scarburgh of North Walsham made his will in
1472, and he is the ancestor of a line of Henry and John Scarburghs who
lived in the town through to Henry Scarburgh who died in 1688. He was the father of Mary Scarburgh, to whom the property was left She died in 1693.She was the contemporary of the famous court Physician, Charles Scarburgh,Physician to Charles II, James Il, and William and Mary. He had been born in London, and was probably grandson of the North Walsham Henry Scarburgh who was born in 1565.

These seem to be the same person since the profile manager of both initiated the merge .They were created some years ago and  it would really be good to be able to put some sort of source on him and his relations before they are  merged and then sink into obscurity again!

There is a hint that this family may be in the 1664 Visitation of Norfolk. It is not available online (Its on Hathi, it  is possible that it may be available to people in the US but not here in Europe with longer periods of copyright).
