I have just discovered that I have a second, completely seperate set of BLACKMORE ancestors (I have previously posted to the message board re: my BLACKMORE ancestors from the Blackdown Hills area, Somerset)!
This new line is centred upon Brompton Ralph, which is on the edge of the Brendon Hills, towards Exmoor, Somerset. The details I have to date are:
John BLACKMORE married Hannah BRANCHFLOWER, 20th February, 1744, Brompton Ralph. Their children: Hannah BLACKMORE, bp. 16th Jan, 1745, Brompton Ralph; married Charles ROUTLEY, 2nd May, 1768, Brompton Ralph Betty BLACKMORE, bp. 13th April, 1748, Brompton Ralph John BLACKMORE, bp. 1st Sept, 1750, Brompton Ralph Mary BLACKMORE, bp. 17th Jan, 1753, Brompton Ralph Ann BLACKMORE, bp. 19th May, 1755, Brompton Ralph Jane BLACKMORE, bp. 6th Nov, 1757, Brompton Ralph; married William HEMBURY, 1774, Brompton Ralph Joseph BLACKMORE, bp. 12th Dec, 1760, Brompton Ralph.
Does anyone have any clues as to who John BLACKMORE senior's parents might have been? Any information very gratefully received!
