Descendants of Joseph Mountfort & Elizabeth Adams, Staffordshire, England, c1780

Preface

Here’s a summary of my Mountfort family. It’s here so if you’re searching the web for my ancestors we can get in contact.

Introduction

My earliest known Mountfort ancestors are Joseph Mountfort & Elizabeth Adams. Probably born in England around 1780—ten years after the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven and twenty five years before the slave trade was abolished in the British Empire. The first modern railway didn’t link Manchester and Liverpool until 1830.

They had at least three children born in Staffordshire, England, and a fifth of their descendants and spouses were also born there. A few have emigrated to Australia and New Zealand. Their known living descendants and spouses number around 70.

The earlier generations appear to be well off—even upper class—with a number of families employing servants. There’s no sign of illiteracy in the family as was fairly common in the earlier generations.

There’s no common occupation in the family.

Note how a number of Humphries descendants adopted Mo(u)ntfort as a middle name, with later generations adding a prefix to become de Mo(u)ntfort. Priscilla Humphries (1875–1966) was a renowned dog breeder and named one of her pups War Baby of Mountfort.
