The AMOR family of Bishops Canning, Wiltshire England 1562-->1876 VIC Australia

Journal by allycat

Dear fellow FamilyTreeCircle members, since posting this message I have been able to stretch my tree out to the 1500s to my AMOR ancestors at Bishops Canning, Wiltshire.

Looking for any links with this family:-

George AMOR (3g grandfather) born 1780 Bromham Wiltshire England married 24/12/1804 Bromham to Rebekka KNEE. (She was most probably the daughter of Benjamin KNEE source: 1772 Poll of Knights Wiltshire). The couple probably had two children, my ancestor George AMOR born 1805 Bromham, Wiltshire and Jane AMOR born 1814.

George AMOR b1805 married at Bromham 22/07/1833 to Rebecca ABRAMS of Bromham and they had 7 children that I can find.

1. Mary AMOR b1823
2. John AMOR b1824
3. Carraline AMOR b1827
4. Ena AMOR b1829
5. Ann AMOR chr. 22/07/1834
6. William AMOR chr. 09/07/1837-1913 my 2g grandfather
7. Elizabeth AMOR chr. 05/09/1841

William AMOR 1837-1913, occupation farmer, (my ancestor) married 13/10/1856 at Chittoe, Devizes, Wiltshire, England to Ann Priscilla WHEELER born 1835 Arnecliffe, Westbury, Wiltshire, England to parents: John WHEELER born 1801 Bremhill & Ruth BANCROFT born 1806 Bremhill. There are also marriage links with the FORTUNE family of Derry Hill, Wiltshire.

The couple (PHOTO attached), William AMOR and Ann Priscilla WHEELER (my gg grandparents) came to Australia when they were newly married, on the 'Beejapore' from Yorkshire. The 'Beejapore' arrived Botany Bay NSW 14 Mar 1857. The journey usually took about 9 months from England.

In Australia they settled in the State of Victoria and had 11 children in 18 years.

1.Elizabeth Jane b1858-1945 .. married 1882 Peter GIBSON from Scotland
2.George b1859-1860 ... died young.
