Thomas Ashmore

died 1777

Father unknown
Mother unknown
Wife Keziah Yates
Children Thomas, Mary, Margaret, William, Samuel , John


Nothing of Thomas's early life is yet known.

He married Keziah Yates in Bakewell on 26th June 1732 . Its unclear whether both of them were from Monyash, or whether Thomas may have originated elsewhere (1). Certainly they settled in Monyash after their marriage, as their eldest son Thomas was born there the following spring (2). Next they had two daughters - Mary in 1735 (3) and Margaret in 1738 (4). Their son William was born in 1741 (5), followed by Samuel in 1744 (6), but he died aged just two (7). Finally their youngest son John was born in 1747 (8). Its likely that they also had a daughter called Martha, but her date of birth is uknown (11).

His wife Keziah died in 1766 (9). Thomas lived for another 11 years, dying in May 1777. He was buried at St Leonard's in Monyash (10).

With the exception of his sons Samuel (who died at 2) and William, none of his other children are ever mentioned again in the Monyash parish registers !

  11. Thomas is the earliest Ashmore to appear in the extant parish records for Monyash, and is the progenitor of all later Ashmores. Hence it seems likely that he was also the father of Martha mentioned in the following entry:
    [1769] Octobr 29 Bapd Margaret base Dr of Martha Ashmore
