As the Roman Empire receded Limmers took the seat of Limmer in Germany. They were quiet happy in their wooden castle until it was seized by the house of Hanover. Undeterred, they built longboats and sailed for England, felling trees in the Kings forest and building villages. The honest grew corn, owned mills, made cloth, made top notch boots and sold grain. The dishonest tried a little smuggling, 'Borrowed' a Gelding or got themselves excommunicated or transported. All life here.

This is the story of ordinary family folk, surviving through conflict, black death, legal disputes, civil war, famine and industrial revolution. It shows how they weathered the reformation and spread into both richer and poorer sections of society. some survived on the poor register while others hobnobbed with the rich and famous

It was in fun rather than on any authority of research that I answered a question, ‘What is the motto of the Limmer family’? I replied, ‘Teneo Vestrum Caput Tenus’, which roughly translates as ‘keep your head down as far as…’ The task of filling in the dots is yours. 'The Grindstone' certainly fits the dots. Limmers certainly gained a hallmark of hard workers down the ages. 'The parapet' also fits, for there were few that spoke out too loudly on controversial subjects. Clearly, they associated with Puritans or church reformists but they are not among the verbal few. You cannot say for certain if they were royalists or parliamentarians, while the civil war rages they kept their head down producing and selling the grain so needed during the period- no matter which side you may be on. On the whole Limmers were (are?) a law abiding lot. Pretty boring really! During Elizabethan times Robert Lymmer and his Cousin did a bit of smuggling into France. We cannot tell for how long or how often this went on, but we know they did because they got caught. You can read about them in part two. What about the triplet -health, wealth and long-life? Most Limmers lived a full and long life relative to the time in which they lived. One, at least was still going to sea in his seventies. Limmers were not among the richest but most had an elegant sufficiency. In part three you will meet Edward who was probably the black sheep of the family. But here we see a distinct pattern change in the family lines and a clear link of this triplet. Did Edward have a learning difficulty when he was born? Or did he just grow up with a chip on his shoulder because he could not get on with his step mother? The debate about cause and effect is open and you must make up your own mind, but clearly Edward's poverty affected his later health and prosperity as well as the generations who came from his issue.
