Charles Michelmore's childrens grave

Grave of Ellen's brothers and sister in Totnes churchyard, Charles Michelmore 1825-1826, Thomas Michelmore 1828-1838 and Harriet Michelmore 1837-1855. In 1839 elections, their father Charles Michelmore was alleged to have distributed about ₤675 as bribes to gain votes, including writing off one voter's debt at his bank. It seems likely that he was involved in the corruption of the rotten borough as were his cousins and uncles.
