Glover in Mere
Hi, I'm tracing the family of my great-grandfather, Sidney George Glover, who came to South Australia around 1848. He was married twice (Ellen Elizabeth Scanlon and Martha Manning Burchell). His father is given as Charles Glover, collar maker, from Mere. I have some likely hints - a Charles Glover married to Mary Ann Stephenson; then a previous Charles Glover (barber died 1838 perhaps) married to Mary Ann Moors. Where I'm uncertain is the verification from the Moors to the previous Glover generation. It gives the name as Semei Glover (harness maker) married to Dinah Perrot who had children William, Charles, Priscilla, George Semei (died 1828). Neither Priscilla nor Semei appear in the names of Sidney's children but all 17 children (three women) seem to have strong family names. Perhaps they didn't like the name Priscilla. Ancestry famly trees put in the links as family. The strange thing is that Semei's father, Andrew, is not a name that appears in Sidney's family tree (which I've verified pretty extensively.
