Hello, I am also searching the Alfred Ernest Whatmore Family and he comes from a long line of Whatmore's from Micheldever Hampshire England. Alfred Ernest born was 1854 in Micheldever, England and died 1931 in Columbo Sri Lanka. Parents were Thomas Watmore and Sarah Stevens. According to my research, Alfred Ernest and his wife Emily Hudson had eight children. Constance, Alfred Ernest Jr, Lillian Violet, Ethel Beatrice, Freda, Florence Ruby, Darnell and Ronald.
Alfred Ernest (1854) went to Ceylon as a Private soldier at age 17. and later worked as a relieving guard on the Ceylon railway. There are lengthy stories about the hardships of this family and of their troubled times when the war broke out with the Japanese.
I am stuck on two of their sons namely Darnell and Ronald and would be very grateful for any information about these sons of Alfred and Emily. Also I have need to clarify who their daughter Freda married and her family as well as Ethel Beatrice and her family. I have managed to piece together some of the family of Alfred Ernest Whatmore Jr and Elsie Wendt and also his twin sister Constance. Any information about any of these families would be greatly appreciated.
My husband Wayne Whatmore is a descendant of Thomas Watmore's brother John Watmore who married Harriet Bright. they had another brother Isaac. All were from Micheldever. I have a lenghthystory of all the John Watmore Family and the Thomas Watmore family but very scanty information about Alfred Ernest and his families. I would be ever so grateful for some information to add to my book. I would be only too happy to send you a copy of that once I get the Alfred Ernest family updated in there.
