Tree 18. Descendants of William MICHELMORE
(Buckfastleigh 172x)

This tree may share a common origin with Tree 19. A discussion of possible links between the various early Buckfastleigh trees and subtrees is accessible on the web site.

Several early members of this tree were gentlemen and quite wealthy. For example, Philip 0712 moved to Cockington in the late 1770s and his grandson Philip 1635 later became lord of the manor of Stokeinteignhead. Another Philip 0106 acquired an estate at Dinnicombe in Cornworthy in the early 1800s.  Some of their wealth was undoubtedly based on woolcombing. "The most obvious course, and the one that often brought the greatest rewards, was to buy and comb more and more wool, put it out to be spun and perhaps twisted and dyed, and sell yarn to manufacturers and converters, in short, to become a gentleman woolcomber. … [There were] great gains to be made from this trade.”  (Eric Kerridge: Textile Manufactures in Early Modern England, Manchester University Press, 1985.) Some of the gentlemen may have obtained the wool from the sheep on their own farms.

Many members of this tree emigrated. Australia was a popular destination: The brothers William 0107, Thomas 0112 and Charles Andrew 0108 went to South Australia in the early 1840s. William's son Philip Ching 0464 emigrated to Queensland shortly afterwards, and Philip Hellard 0405 moved to South Australia in the 1920s. Philip Jnr 0446 also appears to have emigrated to Queensland at some time.

Another popular destination was Canada:  The widowed Mary Ellen 0046 and  her children Charles Philip 0082, Frederick William 1181, Philip John 0968, Victor Cleave 0979, James Henry 0046, Francis Harold 0046 and Florence May 0046 moved  to Saskatchewan in the early 1900s. Then Joseph Henry 0886 moved to British Columbia in 1906, followed by his brother Arthur John 0421 a year later. Most of them stayed, but Frederick William 1181 moved on to Victoria, Australia, after a few years and settled there instead.

Other emigrants were Joanna 1537, who emigrated to New Zealand with her husband in 1859, and John 0063, who emigrated to the USA in 1889. Less adventurous were the brothers William Henry 1043 and John 0074, who moved to London in the 1860s, and John Symons 0299, who moved there in the 1880s.

An independent reconstruction of William's ancestry contains several unjustified assumptions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The extant records show no such couple as William and Mary in Buckfastleigh at the time of Mary's birth. It has therefore been assumed Mary is a misprint for Margaret.

 

Grace's husband died less than 2 weeks after their marriage, but a daughter was baptised 8Jun1790. Witness Robert MICHELMORE has not been identified.

William may have retained the family house in Ashburton, and returned home in 1872.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Descriptions of the four windows erected in the Ashburton Parish Church by the MICHELMORE family are accessible on the web site.

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, William's estate would have been equivalent to about £5,900,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Fanny's estate would have been equivalent to about £220,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Bartholomew's estate would have been equivalent to about £8,000,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Richard's original estate would have been equivalent to about £3,400,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How did this family start out so humbly (shoemaker, grocer, carpenter, clerk) and end up so well off and referred to as gentlefolk? One possibility is that Thomas made it rich as a merchant in the USA and when he died in 1862 left his fortune to his brother Bartholomew, who had been in the USA with him. Fanny died in 1875 with only ₤450, but when Bartholomew died in 1876 he may have left his ₤14,000 to his remaining siblings. (This would explain why they erected a memorial to Bartholomew and Thomas.) Rebecca died in 1886 with ₤5,000, Susanna in 1889 with ₤2,000, Richard in 1891 with ₤7,000 and William in 1891 with ₤11,500.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Susanna's estate would have been equivalent to about £1,000,000 today.

It appears that William failed to pay his debts in England and was still being sought 10 years later.

 

William and Jane left their infant son Philip 0464 in England. He did not move to Australia until 1849.

 

 

 

 

Meadows is to the south east of Adelaide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michelmore Drive in Meadows may be named after William or any one or more of his descendants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A memorial stone in Slapton parish church describes Jane as "daughter of Nicholas and Ann CHING, died in Australia” and gives the date of her death as 17Oct1883.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michelmore's bridge was still so-called in 1949, when it was repaired and strengthened.

A graphical explanation of the relationship between Philip and Jonathan ROOSE is accessible on the web site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Philip's property would have rented for the equivalent of about £125,000 a year today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is believed that the reference to Philip's wife as "otherwise WATKINS, spinster" means that, at the time of her marriage, her surname was WATKINS and she was a spinster. In relation to average earnings, Philip's estate would have been equivalent to about £3,000,000 today.

 









 

Anne was a niece of Philip's first wife Betsey. Her brother George 2328 [Tree 900] named one of his children Henry Michelmore WATKINS, the middle name presumably in honour of Philip. A graphical explanation of the family relationships is accessible on the web site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Anne's estate would have been equivalent to about £430,000 today.

Thomas's memorial in Payneham Cemetery

 

Thomas appears to have died at the home of his son Eric 1821. In relation to average earnings, Thomas's estate would have been equivalent to about £1,100,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is not known if Hartley was any relation to Sarah's mother. Witness M C MICHELMORE has not yet been identified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Susan was a sister of Thomas's first wife. Both were children of Charles STEVENS and Eliza JONES.
