Did You Know?

  • In Sarah Dunsmore's baptism entry her mother's name is given as 'El' followed by a gap. I think that it's more likely that it was a mistake and she was the daughter of Jane Bramly than that Jane had died, Francis Dunmore had remarried, that wife then died, and Francis married another Jane by the time his next child Martha Dunsmore was baptised. (But given the long gap between the baptisms of Sarah and Martha it's not impossible!)
