Hi Rupert,

I'm a descendant of John and Alice Whitmarsh, who sailed from Weymouth, Dorset, to Weymouth, Massachusetts, in 1635. There is a Whitmarsh genealogy book that my grandmother has that is nearly 100 years old that says that John and Alice are believed to have come from Batcombe in Somerset. I did a little further research, but can't verify this, though perhaps his wife Alice (nee Garment), at least, did come from that village. I'm visiting this part of the world in a few days and was wondering if you might know anything about this or anywhere to visit connected to them? I'm not sure if their parents' graves would still be around or legible given their age (I believe John's father was David Whitmarsh, supposedly born about 1550 in Weymouth), but I'd be curious to know if you know of anything I can't find online...

Many thanks!
