Comment Joop on record 381: As
stated before the handwriting is likely somebody else's and misreading could
have happened when these records were rewritten in the 1800's;
the record does say Thore, but the name is probably different; email correction 050102: I've run across an alternate reading for a surname cited in the baptism of Anna Rumph on 26 Jan 1757. Father David Rumph's brother Peter (d. 1761) married Catherine, the widow of an unspecified Knore near Four Holes, in 1746. I would expect that Frederick "Thore" is her Knore/Knorr brother-in-law. I haven't run across any land or will references to people named Knore, but that's a more likely name than Thore.
Happy New Year! - Harriet Imrey
Additional info by Harriet: Catherine Knore is attested twice on documents related to her marriage settlement with Peter Rumph in 1746, and she's a resident of St. James Santee (near/at the Four Holes) at that time. Also, she's attested as executrix Catherine Knore for the 1745 will of her brother-in-law Robert Parsons in St. Bartholomews Parish (where husband-to-be Rumph was living in 1745).
