WELCOME
TO: PORTER HISTORY .COM
From the 1066 Battle of Hastings
To the 21st Century in America
This Web Site is about my family
 

Let me tell you about the Porters. My name is Robert. I’m called Bob (among other things) and I arrived here on Earth on September 6th 1918. But this is not about me. It is about the family history which I feel obligated to pass along, because I may be the only one left that listened to a part of the story which was related to me and my brothers by my Father, my Uncles, and my Grandfather.A part of it, that listed names and dates of birth, was recorded in the Family Bible, which has disappeared following the death of my Cousin Jessie, who had kept it following the passing of my Grandparents

INTRODUCTION

To start with, let me introduce you to the “Living Porters”. Page 2, is next. It  will be devoted to the present generations.

Let us start with the youngest and continue on with the more senior ones Generation by Generation.

 

I have 3 children and 3 Grandchildren. My Brother Ronald had 7 children and I’m not yet sure of the number of grand children. Hopefully, we will let you meet them all.

 

The rest of the pages will tell you the “PORTER STORY”. Each page contains a Chapter of the family history, starting with the 1066 battle and continuing through our ancestry of people and times and ending with the current family members.

 

ALSO!! We know that there are many Porters living all over America who share our ancestral roots. We ask them to send us a message to the address below and let us add them in.

 

My Source of information

The “Shed” Porter Family with Grandma, Grandpa and sons,       Raymond, Clarence and Ralph. I listened, while Ralph, my Dad, together with  uncles, Ray and Clarence, discussed the family’s English background, with added bits by Grandpa. Grandma said she’d heard it from a previous generation

 
History has passed from generation to generation. Let’s continue.
