William Ashmore

1741 - 1822

Father Thomas Ashmore
Mother Keziah Yates
Wife Martha
Children William, Mary, Martha, Thomas, John, Keziah, Sarah, Samuel, Joseph, Benjamin, Rachel


William was born in 1741 in Monyash (1), the 4th child of Thomas & Keziah. He had an older brother Thomas, and two older sisters, Mary and Margaret (2). A younger brother Samuel was born 3 years later (3), but he only lived for a couple of years (4). His youngest brother John was born in 1747 (5).

His mother died in 1766 (6).

He married a woman called Martha, and they settled in Monyash, sometime prior to 1771, when their eldest son William was born (7). A couple of daughters came next - Mary the following year (8), and Martha in 1775 (9). His son Thomas, who was probably named after his grandfather (and seems to have been baptised twice!), followed in 1776 (10)(11), before Thomas senior, William's father, died in 1777 (12). After another son, John, in 1778/9 (13), there were two more daughters, Keziah in 1780 (14), and Sarah in 1783 (15). Son Samuel was born in 1785 (16), then twin sons Joseph and Benjamin in 1788 (17) - although unfortunately Joseph only survived for a couple of weeks (18), and Benjamin for less than a month (19). Finally, his youngest daughter, Rachel, was born in 1790 (20), but she too died young at the age of 4 (21).

His wife died aged 52 in 1799 (22)(23), but William lived on to the ripe old age of 81, dying on 24th October 1822 (22). He was buried in Monyash four days later (24).
