i have just noticed your message, and wonder if there is any connection to my Wilmot family, from Cloford, Somerset, which is not far from Witham Friary. My great grandfather was Fred Wilmot, a gamekeeper, born c.1870. His parents were Thomas And Emma, and he had a sister Jane, and brothers William and James. It is all a bit of a mystery after that as he and my Great Grandmother Harriet Lovell never married, their daughter Clara Reine Wilmot-Lovell was born in 1891, but she was always vague about the details, I do not know if he even knew Harriet was pregnant before they split up!!! He married a woman called Ellen in 1893, she was tenyears older than him, so I do not know if they had any children, none are listed in 1901 census. I do not know if we are related, but if you recognise any of these names please get in touch.Thanks!!
