saw your entry in genforum. its nice to know that someone else is intereted in the name pattemore. are you new to family history research? do you have any idea about places and/or dates for any births/marriages/deaths for any of your pattemore forebears?
pattemore is not a common surname but it certainly seems to have been common in south east somerset. i know of many pattemores in merriott and crewkerne and there also seems to have been quite a few in guernsey. john seems to have been a popular pattemore firstname and i have many recorded in the database i keep of the somerset pattemores.
if you could give me any additional info ie. john robert's wife's name then i may be able to find him for you. you never know we may even be related!
