There is documentation on the lineage of the Elmore family from Charles Elmore b. ca 1754 to present. Before 1754 the lineage is unproven.

First Generation

PETER ELMORE  was born about 1627 in England, and died after 1681 in Virginia. He married JANE [last name unknown] about 1639. She was born about 1618 in Virginia.

Children of PETER and JANE ELMORE are:

  1. THOMAS ELMORE, b. about 1642, Warboys Parish, Huntingdonshire, England.
  2. PETER ELMORE, b. about 1643, Richmond County, Virginia; d. 01 Dec 1725, Richmond County, Virginia.
  3. Ann Elmore, b. c1654, Richmond County, Virginia, d. 1 Aug 1715, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; m. Charles Dodson, in 1678, Richmond County, Virginia.

Research Notes: There was a Peter Elmore living along Totasky Creek, Richmond County, Virginia who was the subject of a headright in 1657. He was born circa 1627 and died after 1681. This Peter, in all probability was the father of Peter Elmore born circa 1643. Peter2 outlived all his children but one and named all his grandchildren in his last will which was proved 5 October, 1726 in Richmond County, Virginia. Peter's oldest son Peter3 had five sons. The youngest was John Elmore born 1703 and died 1757. His will was proved 3 October, 1757 in Richmond County, Virginia. John had four sons and two daughters. One son George born 1722 and died 1792. He married in 1743 and had eight sons and one daughter.  Peter1 may have had a brother named Fauntleroy, born about 1630, died after 1681, who had a son named Francis who married Anne Allen on 2 Dec 1677 in Richmond County, Virginia.
