On the 1871 census, James and Elizabeth's oldest son is James Hanmore age 10 born Yalding, Kent. Have you found a birth registration and / or baptism for him, Sue?

Ah, is he James Henry Anmore whose birth was registered Jan-Mar 1861 Maidstone district?

I've not got birth reg for all of the children and not got baptisms for any of them!

Off to have a look at that suggested birth, that surname spelling is certainly a possibility!

While looking for James Anmore, I came across George Enmore (grandfather!) born in Malling, which is definately the right area, Off to order that cert NOW RESULT

I see that East Peckham is included in the missing pieces of the 1861 census, so we may never find them on that one.

I'd never realised that, I just thought the family were "flighty"

Just thought I'd add, I've got the birth cert for George, James' son, OH Grandfather after the insipration from Kate, and sure enough George Hanmore's birth cert is written as George Enmore. So that's one problem solved!

But all inspirational messages re James Hanmore/Anmore/Enmore gratefully received. (or his wife Jane Higgs!)

Just thought I add something here, just in case it inspires anyone.....
We were at M-I-Ls 100th birthday gathering at the weekend and got chatting to a second cousin who I've only met in passing before, she was fascinated to find someone interested in the family and as she had lived with her grandmother, has a wealth of information on all sorts of people! Just as I was about to mention this man, she said "George's father had a rough time" It seems that James ran away from home when he was about 8, he was being sent up chimneys, and wasn't having any of that so ran away and never went back to the family. No wonder we haven't ever been able to find them!
But this has had me looking for Hanmore's that were chimney sweeps, there are some in Chichester.
So, what's the chance that James is not really a Hanmore, or doesn't come from Kent???

Right, so on the 1851 census there is a Charles Hanmore in Chichester who is a chimney sweep masters, born Kent with a son James age 4 born Chichester, and then in 1861 Charles is 49 born Chichester and James is 14. But that James is too young to be yours. Could be related, though.
In 1841 Charles is in Chichester with his wife Emma and they don't have a James then.

I've found the James from this family living in 1871 in Chichester, as a sweep. My James is in Kent with "wife" and children by then, so definitely not my James, but an interesting family!
Also an interesting slant is that when James died, his wife married a sweep!

No luck finding James prior to 1871, Sue. I tried searching by forename and place of birth without a surname, and cross-checked a number of possible candidates, but I was able to locate them elsewhere.

Births Mar 1861
ANMORE James Henry Maidstone 2a 458

Births Jun 1863
HANMORE Hannah Malling 2a 407

Births Jun 1865
ENMORE George Malling 2A 442

Births Dec 1868
HANMORE Elizabeth Jane Malling 2a 514

Deaths Dec 1867
Hanmore William 0 Malling 2a 268


I hope these are of some use, at least. I assume James Henry is the son James from the 1871 census, as the age and location look about right. No mother's maiden name, however. The others are all Higgs, I think.

I'll have another look for you tomorrow.
