Jemima Watmore mentioned in two London newspapers on 13 & 14 November 1826. See also "Mrs Jemima Whitmore" on 13 November 1826 in The Globe.

Inquest into James Long's (age 4) death. Jemima was lodging in the same house as his parents at Plumtree Court, Shoe Lane.

I believe a Charles Watmore gives "Shoe Lane" as his birthplace on an 1851 census (see the actual image). Could he be another son of John & Jemima Watmore?
