2020

I’m not going to put a gloss on this, 2020 has been the most difficult year most of us have ever had, and for some, tragic beyond words. At the same time is also a year of great joy, as we welcomed our first great grandchild.

It has been quite a few years since we have reached out via this blog. Having unstructured time allowed me to sort out and reconnect several missing links. We have continued the FamilyTreeDNA Pomeroy project, added more BMD records from original parish records images available on Ancestry and Find My Past, and purchased original documents from the National Archives. The Pomeroy One Name Project is reactivated at the Guild Of One Name Studies.

From this blog there are links to the old Pomeroy a
web page, which in turn contains links to files, while created some years back, contain valuable information.

For the attention of US members

Some of you will have recently received reminder e-mails about your 2012 subscriptions even though your checks have been received by our US representative. This was due to an oversight on my part, so please ignore those emails if you have already made your payment. My apologies go to those members affected for the inconvenience it may have caused.

Best regards

2011 Annual Report…now out!

The 2011 report updating PFA members on the progress in our project, and reviewing our current hypotheses, has just been published.

The members’ version, which runs to 100 pages, contains details for each family tree we’re tracking and is available from me as a  PDF.

A shortened version of 18 pages, which has the description of the project but does not contain the details about individual trees, is available in A4 and US-Letter versions on the Downloads page of our website. We hope this will give non-members an idea of the scale of the project and how much progress we’ve made!

Arscott Pomeroy (Holsworthy tree)

I am seeking information concerning Arscott Pomeroy’s lineage see below. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

John Pomeroy, Ontario, Canada- member of the Holsworthy Pomeroy family – jpomeroy@rogers.com

Details:

Arscott Pomeroy christened 6 Nov 1813 the son of John and Susan Pomeroy in Holsworthy Devon England.

Arscott married Dorcas Hender 31 Mar 1836 in Holsworthy. I have been able to find them in the 1841 census living in Stratton without children. I have not been able to find any other records for this couple in England.

Arscott Pomeroy died 16 Dec 1888 was a shoemaker and is buried in buried in Gorrie, Huron County Ontario. There are no records for either Arscott or Dorcas in the 1871 or 1881 Canadian Census. I have been unable to find any records in England or Canada for his wife’s death, there are no records for her living in Canada either.

Although not an obvious member of the Holsworthy family. What makes this interesting for me is that in his latter years he resided close to several other members of the Holsworthy family in Canada. In fact Thomas Pomeroy born 1810 Holsworthy named his son James Arscott born 1856 Stratford Ontario Canada.
