Hi, Only just saw your query on William
Colmer b.1814. I have a collection of other
Colmers in UK including this one. I have 7
children for this William and his wife
Susanna (b.1821, d.1885):- Richard (b.1845 -
d.1925), John b.1847, Susanna b.1850. Mary J.
b.1854, Henry b.1860, Samuel G. b.1860,
Thomas b.1862. I don't have any more
information on them other than this. I have
a likely mother for William, from the 1861
census, Mary Colmer a widow aged 74yrs who
lived nearby.
My personal email address is and I live in Australia.
I don't get a chance to look at this site too
often so a note to my personal address will
help remind me.

I would be interested in your connection to Wlliam Colmer as I have been studying the Colmer surname for a long time and have a lot of information on the various branches of the family. My husband's family came from the Dorset/Somerset borders.I have the 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881 census for Cornwall as well as all birth, marr and death registrations from 1837 ( plus a lot before that). If you let me know what information you want I'll look it up for you

My XXXX-grand father was Thomas, born in 1795 in St.Austell, Cornwall, I believe. Not quite Lands End but very close.

The child Mary Ann you refer to was a census error. She was Mary Jane my 2G grandmother who married Thomas Edward Skinner 5 Oct 1874.
