     Note: THE GILMORE FAMILY
(EARLY HISTORY)

The name Gilmore, of ancient Scottish origin, is derived from the Gaelic "Gille -Mohr", meaning follower or servant of the great, or servant of the Chief. In Scotland the latter was interpreted as "bearer of the chief's broadsword." These men were usually selected for their size and strength which would indicate that the Gilmores were strong and of large stature.

The early Gilmores were a sept of the Morrison Clan located on the Island of Lewis off the northwest coast of Scotland. Tradition says the Clan is descended from a son of the Norwegian King who, with his wife, was ship-wrecked on the island. Some credence is lent to the truth of this story by the fact that during the ninth century Norwegian adventurers settled in the north of Scotland and the Western Isles. It was not until the end of the 13th century that these lands were freed from their dominion.

The Scotch-Irish

In 1609 the lands of Northern Ireland were appropriated by King James as a result of the Irish Rebellion -partially political but largely religious. These lands included the counties of Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry and Tyrone -now Northern Ireland, and Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan -now Ulster Province in the Republic of Ireland.

At that time, this whole area was known as Ulster and was leased by the king to large landlords who brought immigrants from England and Scotland to farm them. Those from England were known as Ulstermen while those from Scotland came to be known as the Scotch- Irish. By about 1720-25, rents in Ulster had become so high and other conditions so poor, that many of the Scotch-Irish began to immigrate to America where they played an important part in early colonization, especially in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the New England Colonies. In Pennsylvania, this immigration became numerous about 1728 and over 1200 Scotch-Irish reached America in each of the succeeding five years. John Gilmore, our first American ancestor, is believed to have been one of these immigrants.

The following appeared in the Boston Transcript Jan. 2, 1937:

James Gilmore with three brothers came from Scotland via Ireland, soon after 1700, to Philadelphia. James settled in New York; John my ancestor, went with the Scotch-Irish immigration to Augusta County, Virginia. One brother stayed near Lancaster, Pa. and the fourth went to Guilford Co., N. Car.

John Gilmore was born in Ireland -probably Londonderry since several Gilmore families are known to have originated there -prior to 1700, and came to America with his family around 1730-35. They settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania along with other Scotch-Irish families. At that time all of this land belonged to Wm. Penn, having been granted to him by the King of England. However, Penn had also negotiated treaties with the Indians for these lands before allowing settlement thereon and his relations with the Indians had always been friendly. But all of this changed with the coming of the Scotch-Irish. Being of an aggressive nature, they were not content to long remain in the peaceful settlements but pushed across the first range of mountains into the Conewago Valley, unto land still claimed by the Indians. Raids resulted and some whites were killed. This upset the staid Quakers and Germans elsewhere in the county and four of the Scotch-Irish were brought to trial. When asked by what right they occupied these lands, they replied, "By Divine Right, God never intended such fertile lands to be held by savages." Nothing further was done at that time but matters became worse and the Scotch-Irish were asked to move out. Many of them went to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia which was then being opened to settlement. Alexander Gilmore's brother, James, states in his pension application that he was born in Pennsylvania but moved with his family at an early age to Virginia. He was born in 1745. This indicates that the Gilmores also emigrated with the Scotch-Irish to Virginia, and we find their records in the Scotch-Irish settlements and the early Presbyterians churches of Augusta County.

Thomas Gilmore was born at Ireland. He married Agnes Sterling.
