GILMORE Family History

This interesting surname is of Scottish, Irish and Anglo-Saxon origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacGille Mhoire" (Scotland), or MacGiolla Mhuire (Ireland), a patronymic from the personal names meaning "servant of (the Virgin) Mary". The surname can also be derived from a locational name, from Gillamoor in Northern Yorkshire, so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal names "Getlingas" or "Gyolingas", meaning "people of Getta", or "people of Gyola", and "mor", marsh or moor. Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace...

    Looking for information on John Gilmore circa 1829. I'm told he's from Southern-On-Sea, United Kingdom. Son of John is William Gilmore. They ended up in Clinton, Iowa (I believe John to be buried there).

    John Gilmore married Elizabeth Ellot (Elliott?). Their Daughter, Susannah (1818-1875), married James Poland (1820-1867) c.1838. James and Susannah moved to Scotland, then their son, Matthew married Susan Law before moving to Australia. Matthew was my Gt Grandfather, so Susannah was my Gt Gt Grandmother and John was my Gt Gt Gt Grandfather. seeking information about my Irish Heritage.....
