M*CH*MORE One Name Study

SOUTHERN SOUTH HAMS

Tree 102. Early Blackawton families (15xx-1728)

There are many early records of M*CH*MORE events in Blackawton, with marriages starting in 1540 and baptisms and burials starting in 1570. However, they are difficult to reconstruct into a coherent tree for two reasons:

  1. Although the parish registers are clearly written and relatively easy to read (apart from the  pages of the burial register for 1596-1603, where the top corners have been torn off and either the names or the dates are missing), several crucial events are missing: either they were not recorded or they took place in neighbouring parishes.
  2. As was common in the 16th and early 17th centuries, many baptismal records only name the father.

This subtree lists all the extant records and indicates how they might fit together.

There are no M*CH*MORE baptisms recorded in Blackawton in the period 1669 to 1733, suggesting that this line died out or moved away from the parish. But it is possible that Thomas, the progenitor of Tree 13, was a son of Edmond and the baptism was either not recorded or took place in another parish. In that case, this tree would represent earlier generations of  Tree 13.

Underlining indicates the latest update (#30).
