Researching LONGMORE family in Shropshire around 1800
« on: Tuesday 20 March 07 03:50 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to locate any others who have an interest in the LONGMORE family surname. And particularly those researching in and around Shropshire. I will followup with further details depending on the responses. I live in the USA and want to start a correspondence with someone who may be closer the sources available within Shropshire and surrounding area (or England in general for that matter).

My Longmore are from Kidderminster, the earliest being Edward Longmore who married Mary Walker in 1801.  There is an Edward listed in the parish records for Alveley 1773 that could possibly be him would you have any information on Alveley Longmores?  I have a Mary nee unknown married to a John Smith born in Bridgenorth.  Their granddaughter Bertha Smith married James Longmore in 1876.

Have you found your Shropshire Longmores in any of the census?

If not, let me know, as I have access to the 1841 - 1901.

A Google search found this: http://www.msheppard.com/trade.htm

I did find some other sites about the Longmore name but I think they may be yours anyway ;) :)

It is nice to get some feedback. I have been working intensely on Longmores in England for a while now. I use werelate wiki (see links below) to help with collaboration. I welcome you or any others who are interest to add to it or help clarify in anyway. Yes I am familiar with the msheppard site list. I have contacted her in past but she told me she is not actively working on it at this time. I have plans to convert the data from these pages and store it in a database for search purposes. See links below for a version of the Longmore Search Page (work in progress).

Where my information starts getting sketchy on my direct line is with Eleanor/Ellen Longmore around 1814 in Bridgnorth. I found Henry her sons birth/christening (19 Jan 1814 in Bridgnorth) date on the parish records of the St Leonards Church in Bridgnorth. I will list a few links that give more details about my research.

Hi dlongmore,

who said;

Quote

I found Henry her sons birth/christening (19 Jan 1814 in Bridgnorth)


In my collection of Bridgnorth records, I have;
The marriage at St. Mary's Church on 16 Jan 1844;

Henry LONGMORE, full age, single, Carpet weaver. No father given.
to
Jane HALL, full age, widow, dau of Richard BOLTON, occ'n .. Cooper.
Both of Bernard's Hill, Bridgnorth.

Henry LONGMORE, Weaver of Underhill St, was made a Freeman of Bridgnorth on 26 July 1838. App'd to William HALL and to Thomas Ross SOUTHWELL.
Many LONGMORE's from in and around the Bridgnorth District, including Alveley, were Freemen.

Henry LONGMORE, age 57, Landlord of The Red Lion Inn, Underhill Street, died approx. w/e 20 June 1863. However, I note this Henry is not 'yours' but probably the one born in Chelmarsh.

Hope it helps,
Gwynne
