I visited Rhode Island this past summer (2011)and the first known Wildbore to this country was Samuel Wilbore (they dropped the d when coming over - Wildbore is still the correct spelling in England today).Samuel arrived abt. 1630 and the Wilbore/Wilbur/Wilbor/Wilbour/Wilber/Willbur etc... family settled in the Tiverton and Little Compton RI area as it was friendly to their Quaker beliefs. My own line goes through NY to Michigan (where the extra el got added).
Samuel RI Tiverton/Little Compton - from England abt. 1630 William RI Benjamin RI Daniel RI Smithfield Daniel RI Samuel (and Polly Thompson?) Eaton NY Edwin (and Eunice Bellows) to Battle Creek MI approx. 1843 Edwin has at least 4 siblings but I can't access my file from this computer so doing all this from memory.
The families started spelling their names differently due to so many Wilbore's.We are all related.
The Wildbore's came from Essex county England and were there for 3 or 4 generations and prior to that in Yorkshire county, West Riding.
The oldest in my records is Wyllhemus, then: John, Thomas, Nicholas, Nicolas, then the Samuel to America
