DALMER OF TROWBRIDGE AND LEEDS

 

The Richard Dalmer who married Sarah Davis may be the Richard Dallimore, weaver, who died on 18 March 1840 at Trowbridge aged seventy-seven. However, the death was registered by James Dallimore of Duke Street, Trowbridge, who was probably the James, son of Richard and Elizabeth Dalmer baptised at Holt in 1799. The Richard in question may therefore be a different man from the Richard who married Sarah Davis.

 

A couple who may be closely related to this family is Robert Dallimore and Susanna Hooper who were married at Trowbridge in 1812. Jane Caroline, daughter of Robert and Susannah Dallamore, was baptised at Hunslet, Leeds, in 1825.

[10] Elizabeth’s burial entry (Leeds General Cemetery registers, online at https://library.leeds.ac.uk/special-collections-explore/Leeds%20General%20Cemetery%20Burial%20Registers%20Index) gives her parents as Thomas and Elizabeth Hooper but it seems likely that she was the Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Ann Hooper, who was baptised at Trowbridge in 1795. Thomas Hooper, bachelor, and Ann Clifford, spinster, were recorded to have been married on 18 Feb 1792 at Trowbridge (Trowbridge parish registers, Wiltshire and Swindon Archives). However, the banns show Ann as a widow (online at www.ancestry.com). Phillip Clifford and Ann May were married at Trowbridge in 1779 and Phillip Clifford was buried at Trowbridge in 1791.

[16] There were two couples named Richard and Elizabeth Dalmer/Dallimore in Trowbridge in the early nineteenth century: Richard and Elizabeth (Rindall), married in 1802, and Richard and Elizabeth (Hooper), married in 1812. In some cases, it is not yet clear which of these were the parents of children mentioned in the parish registers as children of Richard and Elizabeth Dalmer, so there may have been other children of Richard and Elizabeth (Hooper) Dalmer who are not listed here.
