M*CH*MORE One Name Study

RECONSTRUCTED FAMILY TREES

Several family trees have been reconstructed from the M*CH*MORE source data by tracing people's ancestry back from the present day using a methodology described here. These trees originate from three main areas in England: the southern South Hams (centered on the parish of Stokenham in Devon), the northern South Hams (around the parish of Buckfastleigh in Devon) and Cornwall. The Muchmore Family Association has reconstructed two further trees in the USA. For a discussion of possible links between these trees, click here.


The following tables give the earliest known member of each family tree and their place and date of birth. (A date such as 171x gives the approximate decade.) Note that the trees originally numbered 03, 04, 06, 07, 10, 12 and 14 have been merged with other trees as a result of ongoing research. To browse a tree, click on the name.


 

Southern South Hams

Tree 01. Walter (East Allington 161x)
Tree 02. Thomas (Stokenham 168x)
Tree 05. Peter (Stokenham 163x)
Tree 08. William (Stokenham 1748)
Tree 09. Edmond (Charleton 161x)
Tree 11. Thomas (Thurlestone 174x)
Tree 13. Thomas (Blackawton 170x)
Tree 15. Samuel (Totnes 165x)
 
 

Northern South Hams

Tree 16. Philippus (Buckfastleigh 157x)
Tree 17. Philip (Buckfastleigh 170x)
Tree 18. William (Buckfastleigh 172x)
Tree 19. John (Buckfastleigh 169x)
 
     

Cornwall

Tree 20. George (Trewint 157x)
 
 

 

There are, however, many records of M*CH*MOREs who do not fit into the above family trees:

  • Several shorter sequences of related families, called subtrees, have been reconstructed. These are accessible here.

  • The remaining records have been grouped geographically and are accessible here. Included in these groups are records of people with a M*ch*more middle name.

Note that, in all trees and subtrees, data on living persons are only included if they have given their explicit permission.
