Elmore Family History

This is an English medieval locational surname. It derives from an ancient village called "Elmore" in the royal county of Gloucestershire, the home of the Prince of Wales. "Elmore", the village, is recorded in the Pipe Rolls for the county as early as the year1176, in the spelling of "Elmour" and in the Pipe Rolls of 1195, and the Charter Rolls of 1227 as "Elmoure". However spelt the village name and the later surname, derive from the Old English pre 7th century word "elm", for the elm tree, and "ofer", a river bank, thus " the bank where elms grew"...

I am an Elmore by birth. I find our first Elmore in Washington County, Virginia in 1850. According to census records Isaiah was born in 1797 in North Carolina and some of the children born in Tennessee. In 1860 the family is living in bordering county, Smyth County, Virginia. One of Isaiah's sons (James) married Elizabeth Thomas in 1867 and they had two sons. James and Isaiah Jr still have some relatives in the area; however, this family appears and disappears like magic. Has anyone heard of Isaiah? Thanks Susan
