Family History of Selmes


Will Tucker: Hello Will
I am interested in the Selmes name too, and have some baptisms for Selmes at Brede noted from a transcript of the parish records. There’s a baptism on 26 May 1833 for a Mary Ann Selmes, daughter of James and Mary, and a marriage for James Selmes to Mary Ann Ford at Brede on 22 November 1831.
I don’t have a marriage noted for Mary Ann Selmes to James Porter and if some of their children were using the Selmes surname when they married it would first suggest to me that James and Mary Ann didn’t marry.
Best regards Caroline
