This page contains email I've received from various Wilmots around the world. Many of these people are doing genealogical research. Others just happened to be called Wilmot and are interested in the fact that there are other Wilmots around. The two sections here are for people with Last Name Wilmot. If your first name is Wilmot, you now have your own page. There is also a short section on variants on the name Wilmot on the Wilmot Lore page.

Last name (surname) Wilmot

So many of you have sent me Wilmot genealogy information that I've had to split this up into two pages. This page has the older information: sent to me in 2002 or earlier.

Thank you for putting together the web page.  I am amazed as to how far the family names seems to have spread around the world.
 My name is Natasha Wilmot and my family are all from Maun in Botswana.  I understand my grandfather Robert Wilmot was also born in Botswana.
 I knew the Eastern Cape in South Africa seemed to be riddled with Wilmots, but had no idea they were scattered across the world.
Please would you place me email in your "genealogy" section and should any one wish to know anything about the Botswana Wilmots, please contact me on email: hazelwilmot@mweb.co.za
I have recently moved to South Africa.
Kind regards
Natasha Wilmot (14 October2002)
Editor's note: I asked Natasha where her line of Wilmots originated, to which she replied: The story goes that a family of nine brothers came out on the ships to Cape Town from England.  This is then where our branch of the family is meant to originate from.

[NOTE from the editor: These notes have been sitting in my mailbox for over a year. Many apologies for my tardiness in posting them.]

Have you got an up to date e-mail address for GUY EARDLET-WILMOT? The one shown on my screen draws a blank. I am anxious to get in touch with him, being a distant cousin.
 thank you Wendy Hopkins, 30 May 2002

Great site...all Wilmot's greatly appreciate what you have done. This has got to be one of the most imaginative family sites on the web. Add me to your roster. www.nedwilmot.com
 I am Trip Wilmot's Dad, plus Todd, Scott and Randy. We descend from Capt Benjamin Wilmot [1838-1914] Cos Cob, CT [Greenwich]  He was an oyster fisherman on Long Island Sound his entire life. My brother Clifford and sister Patricia Horton remain in Greenwich today. They seem to be the only one's I know that can spell my name without an "N".

Hello, My name is Laura Wilmot (August 29th, 1981 (I'm also called wilmont, and it drives me crazy...like that sounds better? Right.) , I'm a 20 year old from Kent, Washington. (state) But my father's name is William David Wilmot (June 1st, 1951) , and his father, Roy Wilmot was in an orphanage as a child, but now has been living in seattle all his life.  I have always been very interested in finding out my heritage...whether I have relatives nearby or not. Let me know if you know anything! ( Laura Wilmot, 26 February 2002)

My father's name is Robert Emmit Wilmot, Emmit after the Irish patriot.  I grew up being told I was Irish, red hair, freckles and all.  I never thought twice about it until I met someone from Ireland who emphatically told me I was not Irish- with the name Wilmot.
This has really been a blow to my identity.  Can you offer any help in explaining this.  Do you know is any Irish Wilmots?

Hi, I'm searching for any connections to the Frank Wilmots of  Pittsburgh, PA.  I
believe he was my grandmother's uncle.  He was an attorney who worked for
Andrew Carnegie.  Anyone with any information--it would be most welcome to
me.  I'm in the beginning phases of my genealogical search.

Hello fellow Wilmots!!!

What a relief, we're not alone. I'm Joe Wilmot, originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, now a resident of lovely San Diego, California. I don't know much about my grandfather, Frank Wilmot, who came to Ecuador as a railroad engineer sometime near the beginning of the 20th century. I know he was a war veteran (which war, who the hell knows) and that he married my grandmother, Carmen Mancheno, but that's about it; I never got to meet him. My dad, Alfonso Wilmot, was an electronics engineer who built -- though he intended it to be just an experiment at first -- one of the first and longest surviving commercial radio stations in the country. My brother Tommy still lives in Ecuador, my brother Eddie in Los Angeles -- none of us has children.

The "N" Problem is one we are all acutely aware of. It's like a superfine thorn that lives under your skin mostly unnoticed until someone comes along and touches you in just the right spot, then ouch!. It is an abomination, a reprehensible abuse of spelling privileges, a socially transmitted disease. I would more actively condemn and lobby against Wilmonts, Willmonts, Wilmoths, et al. were it not for the compassion I feel for any and all people cursed with aberrant spellings.

Much love to you all!

The Wilmot from the Saturn television ad!

I just wanted to let you know that I AM the Mike Wilmot from the Saturn ad. While the ad does not portray me specifically, my name was used for the fictional character in the Saturn ad, which was created in 1998 by an ad agency in San Francisco I used to work at (in ads where people/names are made up, agency employees names are often used so that they can sign a release for its use and prevent any litigation by other people out there with the same name).

There was also a print ad that ran. I certainly received my 'five minutes' out of this one.

Best regards.

My name is Philip T. Wilmot Jr. and I live in Whittier California. My fathers name (guess)? was Sr. I have two brothers named Richard and Steven. Rick has a son named Christopher and I have a son named Jeffery. My fathers brothers were George, Alfred. I do have a book my aunt worked on that goes back a few years and generations.

The Wilmot name in Germany a lone time ago was "WILLMOUNTH". Talk about a mouth full. Why does everyone want to put the n in Wilmo(n)t?

Dear other Wilmots,

We just came across your web page and thought we would tell you that there is a family with the last name of Wilmot from Australia, living in the state of Tasmania, (which was settled in 1803 as a convict penal settlement). If you look us up on a map, you will see that we live on an island so we are down under the mainland of Australia.

My husband Stuart comes from Glossop, Derbyshire, England and  I met him in Sydney, Australia in 1971. We married and came to live in Tasmania, we have three daughters, Kristina, Janita and Rebecca

(twins). Stuart comes from a large family of 8 brothers and one sister. They all live in the U.K.

There is a town in Tasmania called Wilmot, near the River Wilmot. We have several Wilmot Streets, presumably named after an early Governor  of this colony, Sir John Eardley-Wilmot. (This family has been to all of them). Also, we have a large stone wall in our Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens called the Wilmot Wall.

Relating to Family Genealogy, We are in the Burke's Peerage World Book of Wilmots.  also two of our extended family in England.  If you would like the last-known address in Bath, Ohio USA for your copy of this scintillating book, please contact us by e-mail

swkwjwbw@primus.com.au  and we will send you details. (10/23/2000).


Hello, I was just really bored surfing on the internet when i found your page, My name is chris Wilmot, brother Corey, father bruce and mother dorinda, are all wilmots. i can go farther if you want too. email me... (Chris Wilmot, 9/11/2000)

My name is Barbara Ann Wilmot and I live in London, in the UK. I was, however, born in Africa in November, 1959, in a country that is now called Zimbabwe and this is where I grew up as well. My great grandfather, Alexander Wilmot, brought our branch of the family to Africa sometime around the end of the 19th century. He was a member of the Cape parliament and wrote a book on the botany of the Cape. He was also a member of an old, catholic, English family and was apparently a descendant of the poet, John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester. Sadly, I know very little else about my family and would be most interested to hear from anyone who believes they are related to me and knows more about this line of Wilmots.

I am looking to trace George C Wilmot-Sitwell who lived in my home at 1 York Road Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England in about 1953. It is thought that Wilmot-Sitwell is a branch of the famous Sitwell family who owned a house in nearby Long Itchington. The Wilmots were also a local family from Berkeswell who owned lime quarries,
Please let me know if you have any info on the family;

I am trying to find out about my grandfather's family.  He was born in
1899...I don't know where.  I think his mother was Effie Cousins.  I get the
feeling he may have been adopted out.  Frank married Hazel Matthison around
1922...they had two children...Jean Elizabeth and Joan...they lived in
Portland, Oregon until my grandfather died around 1989.  He also worked for
the railroad at some point in time and was a painter in the early 1940's.

I am his granddaughter..JoAnne ...age 56 and I live in Dallas, Texas.

I would love to know more about his life.....he was the most wonderful
grandfather in the world!....I miss him!

Any help you can give me would be most appreciated!

Many thanks!

Hi my name is Liz Amies I was a Wilmot descended from the Wilmots of Dublin.
My cousin Terry Lear has traced the family back to a John Wilmot married to
Ann daughter of John Allam  of Moravia who lived in the early part of the
eighteenth century.  They had a son Samuel Wilmot born 1772 who married Mary
daughter of John Lyons.  They had a son Samuel George born 1821 who married
the daughter of Surgeon JW Cusack.  They had ten children one of whom was
James William Simon born 1852.  He had three children one of whom was
William Henry born 1874,  I believe he lived in Hampstead and married in
Kentish Town then Hanwell.  He had four children one of whom was my father
Richard Geoffrey born 1917.  I live on the Isle of Wight and would love to
know if anyone can relate to this family tree. (Liz Amies <lizamies@btinternet.com> 7/17/2000)

WOW! What a site! I am Guy Eardley-Wilmot, and though I know very little about my family, my father does. We are the Eardley-Wilmots of Berkswell, England and my Dad is Sir Michael Eardley-Wilmot, Bt. As soon as I get back from work i'll call my dad about the site. He has so much information on the history of the Wilmots, paticularly their part in the Civil War and in Canada as well as in England, I'm sure he'll be thrilled by the site. Anyway, Cheers, Guy (guy_wilmot@hotmail.com 7/10/2000)

P.S I have that 'n' problem too I don't know where people get it from

I'm looking for information about Wilmot's in Ontario, Canada. Specifically about my Grandfather, Tomas Wilmot who died in 1965 and his brother Bert Wilmot, lived in the US and worked as a Pressman (I think).

I just read your Wilmot home page and I have decided it`s one of the best sites on the web. I come form a town called Cobh in the far south of Ireland. I have 7 aunts and uncles with the name Wilmot plus a gran aunt (plus inumerous cousins). I therefore didn`t have the dreaded "n" problem while at school - since everyone knew at least one wilmot. There is one other similar family in the town but they spell their names wilmott. We all originally stem from a family in a town called Bandon (about 30 miles away). I did have one "n" person in college. One of my best friends made the mistake once and to have a laugh he would sometimes call me wilmont on purpose.

I believe that the name wilmot comes from Norman England. William was the second most common name (after John). As a pet name some williams were called william "the helmet",which was then taken as a surname eventually being shortened to wilmot.

By the way my sister (also a wilmot ha ha) is obsessed with stuffed toys. Wait until I tell her about this.

Seeya, Mark Wilmot. (11/2/99)

hello, fello wilmots!!! did'nt realise that there was so many of us out there.

My name is Lorianne Eileen Wilmot. well, that's my maiden name. My married name is Iacobellis, but that's another story. I was born December 10, 1965, in Oakville ,Ontario Canada. My father's name was Gary Wilmot, and sadly he died on December 1, 1972. At the time he was working at the Orangeville Raceway. Before that he was Director of Racing for the Jockey Club of Canada. He was only 30 at the time of his death. I have an older brother named Delvin Roy Wilmot and i also had a younger brother named Gary Patrick Wilmot, who died April 28, 1992, aged 18 years. My grandfather was Keith Wilmot, former chief of Police here in Stratford, Ontario. That was many years ago.....

We thought that my brother Del would be the last of our family name, but thankfully he married and had a son, born June 21st, 1998. a gorgeous boy named Graham Gary Wilmot. He also has a lovely little girl called Jenna Joanne, after my mum, who died December 12, 1998. My mum's maiden name was Wood, another fine name.

well, must go. my daughter sara is calling me. again, i really enjoyed the site. long live wilmot!!!!

I have been trying to research the Texas Wilmots, on and off for a while. My grandfather was Louis G. Wilmot from Corpus Christi, TX. His father, Louis Wilmot, and his father's father, George Wilmot were both from Corpus Christi, as well. But I believe George Wilmot eventually emigrated to Texas by way of Canada from England. My information stops at George, with only a spouse's name, Maria Jesusa Gomez from Mexico (?). George and Maria reportedly had nine children, all remaining in the Corpus Christi area. If anybody has further information on this line, please let me know! (10/21/99)

Hello, My name is Ashley Siobhan Uilliam Wilmot (Uilliam, not William, it's gaelic, spelled differently but pronounced the same). I am seventeen and I live in London Ontario Canada. My father is Raymond Wilmot (born in Belfast, Ireland) and his father was William George Alexander Wilmot (born in Coleraine, Ireland). His father was George Wilmot, and he was probably born in Ireland too, but I'm not sure. My brother, William Raymond Wilmot, is six years old. I thought I was going to be the last Wilmot in our line, because I'm a girl, but then my Dad remarried and had a son with his new wife, so actually he's my half brother, but who cares. I would like to find other Wilmot's who originate from Ireland, as I am working on a family tree. Anyone who could help me out can email me at siobhan_wilmot@hotmail.com. (10/17/99)

Shana Wilmot has a lot of great information about Canadian Wilmots: It is interesting-I have never thought of looking up Wilmot on the internet. I am, of course, a Wilmot from Brantford, Ontario. My grandfather, Eardley Wilmot, was the Mayor of Bellville and there is Wilmot creek named after our family. One of my great great uncles was one of the fathers of Canada's confederation, while my great grandmother's research into the family tree in the early 20's traced us back to, yes, the Earl of Rochester, who's name was Eardley Wilmot. There was a castle in the Wilmot family in England outside Edinborough until the early 20's called Scalveny Castle. And we have a farm outside Brantford that has been in the family since 1820. Very interesting family-I find myself very fortunate to be a Wilmot.(Shana Wilmot: sWilmot@yorku.ca, 5/31/99)

Randie Bricker, a First grade teacher at Wilmot Elementary in Deerfield, Illinois writes about the school: We just celebrated our 150th birthday. The Wilmot family gave the land to build our school.

We have also recreated "Clarissa's Prairie" on the corner of Wilmot and Deerfield Road to honor Clarissa Wilmot. (4/21/99)

I'm guessing that some of the road names in that area were taken from graves in the cemetry. My family's grave is in there containing three WilmotS. (Apparently, there's room for one more on top.) My father is still alive and kicking at 91 years old.

There's another Wilmot CLOSE in Peckham, south London. Wilmot PLACE is off St. Pancras Way, Camden in north London. Another Wilmot PLACE is in Hanwell, west London. Then there's three Wilmot ROADS in London. One in Leyton, another in Wood Green and another in Carshalton, south London.

I live in Poole in Dorset. My wife, JANE Wilmot is a local Councillor. My nephew, GARY Wilmot will be the last in the line unless he produces a son. COME ON GARY. (Y/YY/99)

A description of the town of Wilmot, Wisconsin: I lived in Wilmot Wisconsin about five years ago and now live about two miles to the west in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. We in this area also have experienced that many people add the "n" into the name.
