Family History of Porter

3rd November 2006

Will Tucker:

re Porters of Brightling/Netherfield etc. Hi Tekla and Jenny. James Porter, b. 1816, was my 3x Great Grandfather. He's the last name shown on the 1841 census for Netherfield, under Edward and Sofia (Sophia). By 1861 he was living in Rye, Sussex with his wife, Mary Ann Selmes (b. Brede 1833). I am told they had 11 children, the eldest being my 2x Great Grandmother, Jane Elizabeth, b. 1854. Jane used her mother's maiden name when she married (Stephen James Smith). Some of the other children also used the Selmes surname - Ruth Emma b. 1862 and George, b. 1875. Do you know why please?
I see Phiily Russell then married again - Stephen Lusted on 2.8.1828 in Burwash.
How many Porters emigrated to Vermont please? Thanks, W.
