John DAMON marriage to Emily ? (Poulter)
« on: Wednesday 03 August 16 13:40 BST (UK) »
Hi all

I am looking for confirmation of the marriage of John Damon and Emily. I suspect that her surname is Poulter. I have found that there is a document listing JD and EP as being married during 1866.

John Damon and Emily had 4 children in Kimberley South Africa between 1873 and 1885.

I am looking for confirmation to the marriage and any English family.

Sorry,the marriage in 1866 wasn't to Emily POULTER (she married Robert ELLIS).
John DAMON married Eliza MOORE.

Hi Maureen

On the Baptism Register for all the children the parents are listed as John Damon and Emily. I did see this person as well but with the register showing JD and Emily that is why I suspect Emily Poulter

Ah, and I thought you knew it to be correct and just needed the Reg no.  ;D

Could they have married in South Africa?

What was his occupation?

Hi Jamjar

I am unable to trace any marriage in South Africa for a John Damon and Emily. This is the only one I can find. I have been told that the English part of the Damon Family are still living in the same house.

Will be meeting with a granddaughter to John Damon on Saturday. Was hoping to be able to clarify this fact before then

I have no info on him. His son Samuel Alexander Damon was a Farrier / Blacksmith in Kimberley

Yes, I can't see other anywhere near 66. I was thinking they may be on the '71 census, but no John and Emily showing up, but I only have access on Familysearch and often folk are missing on there.

Where were the family living in the Uk?

What I know so far is that it was somewhere in London
