I am looking for parental information for William Whitmore. According to the UK Census he was born in Care, Ireland in 1811 but we cannot trace this location. Perhaps the census enumerator spelt his birthplace incorrectly ? He married Ann Gorringe (nee Holman) on 11 December 1837 at the Parish Church of Reigate, Surrey, England and he died March 1895. They had at least 8 children. Any information gratefully received.

Hi Michele
Sorry for the late response but I have not been able to access my e.mail for over a week.
My family certainly do have connections with Reigate in Surrey although I gather that the surname was fairly common in that area.

My Great Great Grandfather was William Whitmore who appears to have been born in Cahir, Ireland in about 1811. He seems to have moved to Reigate, Surrey as a young man and married Ann Gorringe (nee Holman) on 11 December 1837 at Parish Church of Reigate,Surrey.They had 8 children: William b. 1833? at Reigate, Surrey, John b. 1839 at Reigate, Surrey who married Emily Lane on 9 October 1858 at Parish Church of Reigate and had a daughter Emily in 1860; Ann b.1842?; Mary b. 1844 ?; Edwin (my Great Grandfather) b. 24 May 1847 at Foreign of Reigate,Surrey who married Kate Meadway Leach on 12 October 1873 in Camberwell (who dah 6 children); James b. 1850 at Reigate, Surry; Joseph b. 1853; and Henry b. 1855 at Reigate, Surrey. My immediate forebears seem to have lived in and around Brixton and Lambeth until 1983. I have managed to trace a cousin George M.Will to Newhaven.

If you would like a complete Family Tree just let me know your address and I will post you a copy.

Hope this helps. If you can add to any of the foregoing the information would be much appreciated.

Regrads

JOHN

Surnames: Whitmore and Pontin
I have a John Whitmore in my tree who married Ann Pontin 10 July 1794 St Lawrence/Jewry & St Mary Magdalene, Milk Street London. He was a silk merchant. His daughter Anna Maria Whitmore married John Cocking in 1816 and came to Australia around 1835. I have hit a wall with John Whitmore and as there are so many of them have no idea which one he might be. I do not have any info on him except that he married Ann Pontin and was a sild merchant. This info was gleaned from his daughter Anna Maria's deat certificate. If you could help me here I would be delighted.
