M*CH*MORE One Name Study

NORTHERN SOUTH HAMS

Tree 17. Descendants of Philip MICHELMORE
(Buckfastleigh 170x)

In the first five generations of this tree, the eldest son of the eldest son was always called Philip. But then one of them apparently failed to produce a son. The tradition may have started earlier, in which case the first Philip would have been the son of Philip junior [Tree 352], whose father was married in 1707 at Buckfastleigh. The absence of many mid-17th century records prevents any further extrapolation. A discussion of other possible links between the various early Buckfastleigh trees and subtrees is available here.

This is arguably the wealthiest M*CH*MORE tree. The earliest known members of this tree lived in country houses and often farmed substantial estates, gradually spreading outwards from Buckfastleigh to occupy estates in Staverton, Ashburton, Broadhempston, Berry Pomeroy and Ashprington. They were churchwardens, their daughters married stewards of the great houses owned by the aristocracy, they had their portraits painted, and their memorials were erected in their churches. In the 19th century, many sent their sons to boarding schools and several became solicitors or land agents, settling up practices in Totnes, Newton Abbot and Exeter that still exist today. They were also prominent in public life, with Jeffery John and his son Alfred becoming mayors of Totnes and Henry William and his son William Godwin mayors of Exeter.

A summary of the several solicitor firms and land agencies founded by members of this tree is available here.

The first man to leave Devon was Charles Frederick, who spent some time in London in 1850-1851 and had returned to live there permanently by 1871, and his brother Henry, who emigrated to Canada in 1861 but had returned by 1865. Jeffery Edwards and his brother Philip both moved to London in the early 1880s, and Charles Stuart moved to Bath in the 1880s and then to Wales in the 1900s. Several emigrated to Australia: Charles's wife Sophia and three of her children went to New South Wales in 1876, followed by a fourth child in 1877, and the brothers John Alfred, William Trevoso and Ernest Pitts moved to Queensland between 1886 and 1893. Also, Thomas Wilson moved to New York in 1894 and Mary Kate emigrated to Canada about 1940.

Painsford House today

Painsford House today

Painsford House is described in White's 1850 Directory as follows: "Painsford, an ancient mansion, on the banks of the river Harbourn, is the seat and property of Mr. Philip Mitchelmore [sic], and has been successively held by the Piperell, Halwill, Somaster, Kellond, Courtenay, and other families. It was formerly much larger than at present and its dilapidated chapel, though disused since the middle of last century, still retains its pulpit, pews, and altar-piece, and has a suit of armour hanging over the communion rails. The left wing of the house has a fine row of arches."  (Photo courtesy of Martin KELLOND.)

 

 

Thomasin's brother Thomas also left monies to her children in his will.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was a great deal of intermarriage between the descendants of this Philip and the descendants of Henry BOWDEN (see chart). In particular, Ann BOWDEN was Jeffery's first cousin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Jeffery's estate would have been equivalent to about ₤150,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

William was a brother of Elizabeth BOWDEN, wife of Mary's brother Thomas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Thomasin's estate would have been the equivalent of about ₤1,200,000 today.

 

 

 

 

This Henry BOWDEN may have been Jeffery's brother or grandfather (see chart).

Jeffery's aunt Elizabeth (also a BOWDEN) died at Rill.

 

In relation to average earnings, Jeffrey's estate would have been the equivalent of about ₤3,200,000 today.

Thomas may have been in partnership with his brother Jeffery in running the Dart Vale Harriers.

Elizabeth [Tree 01] was a servant at Berry Barton, a neighbouring farm, in 1851.

 

 

 

 

Apparently Thomas won the 1858 case, since a related account was opened at the Chancery Pay Office on 30Apr1860––presumably from the proceeds of the sale of MUDGE's property in Paignton. Payments were made out of this fund in 19Jan1865 and 18Dec1899, but the account remained open until at least 1923. UK legal documents

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Altogether, five Totnes MICHELMOREs (Thomas, Charles and his wife Sophia, Jeffery and Henry) were found guilty of bribery in 1867. As a result of this and similar judgements, Totnes was stripped of its parliamentary representation.

The Wills memorial,
The Plains, Totnes

The plaque reads: "In honor of William John Wills. Native of Totnes. The first with Burke to cross the Australian continent. He perished in returning 28th June 1861. Erected by public subscription. August 1864."

 

A total of five Totnes MICHELMOREs (Charles and Sophia, Thomas, Jeffery and Henry) were found guilty of bribery in 1867. As a result of this and similar judgements, Totnes was stripped of its parliamentary representation.

 

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

Sophia

 

It is assumed that it was her eldest son Charles who accompanied Sophia to Sydney.

Sir John Vanden Bempde JOHNSTONE (1799-1869) was the 2nd Baronet of Hackness. The head of Shrewsbury school in 1851 may have been his son.

The Shrewsbury School records appear to have confused Henry with his cousin Henry, who did become a Newton Abbot solicitor but never attended Shrewsbury School.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 1876 record might refer to Henry's cousin Henry, who is also known to have played cricket for Totnes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 1901 census gives Hubert's surname as MICHELMORE, but the 1911 Irish census shows that the children were her daughter Harriett's sons Hubert Charles & Henry James FRANKLIN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Annie's estate would have been equivalent to about £600,000 today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It appears that Maud continued to use her maiden name as a stage name after she married.

 

A history of the Carl Rosa opera company is available here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harriet's husband was also a professor of singing.

Henry was one of five Totnes MICHELMOREs who were found guilty of bribery in 1867 (the others being Thomas, Charles and his wife Sophia, and
Jeffery). As a result of this and similar judgements, Totnes was stripped of its parliamentary representation.

 

 

 

 

 

In relation to average earnings, Henry's property would have an equivalent rentable value of about £120,000 a year today.

Hooper & Michelmore had offices on Market Street, Newton Abbot, from at the latest 1867 until 1879, when the firm became Hacker & Michelmore. The new partner was Sidney HACKER, whose son Norman later also became a partner—until both withdrew in 1917. The successor firm, Harold Michelmore, is still at the same location.

In relation to average earnings, Henry's salary as Clerk of the Peace would have been the equivalent of about £600,000 today.

Exeter Castle (also known as Rougemont Castle) was built by William the Conqueror in 1068. Henry would have worked in the buildings erected on the site in the 18th century (just visible on the photograph), which until recently housed the Devon County Council, county courts and related offices.

It appears that Charles emigrated to Australia about 1886. His brother Charles had emigrated 10 yr earlier.

 

Charles was secretary to the election committee of Charles Edward JEANNERET, property developer and later mayor of Hunter's Hill, who became Charles's father-in-law the following year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Presumably, Charles had two female servants in 1891.

 

 

The Field of Mars Tramway Committee was set up to promote a tramway through Marsfield, where several of its members had recently purchased land. The Chairman of the committee was Charles's father-in-law.

 

Hillgrove was a gold mining town in the Northern Tablelands. Irvinebank was also a mining town.

 

 

 

Ida's 1921 advertisement states that there were three in her familypresumably herself, her daughter-in-law Margaret (widowed in 1917) and her grandson Douglas @ 4. The house Wybalena was built by Ida's father in 1895. Ida may have inherited the house when he died in 1898 and then moved there after her husband died.

as an older man

 

Michelmore Street in Paget, Mackay, is presumably named after John.

 

John's death record apparently confused his mother with his sister.

 

In relation to average earnings, John's estate would have been worth about ₤4 million today.
