Jerome family, Bermondsey.

My ancestor was Elizabeth Jerome who wed William Goodacre in 1765 in Bermondsey, St Mary Magdalene. Witnesses Thomas Rich and Fanny Neale. Elizabeth and William had a number of children, Frances, Anne, William and Edward, some of whom died in infancy. Frances and Ann survived.

I am quite sure that the Elizabeth Jerome born in 1742 to Parmenas and Frances Jerome at St Mary Magdalen Bermondsey is the one who wed in 1765, as she gave Frances for the name of a daughter, and date wise it fits, as well as the exact same parish. Not 100% yet but looks likely. They lived at East Lane and Rope Walk, Bermondsey in the 1770s and William was a rope maker. Parmenas Jerom lived at Five Foot Lane (later Tanner Street), just a few streets from East lane, although in 1768 the Goodacre's lived at Dock Head, next to Five Foot Lane.

Parmenas was born in 1716 in Bermondsey to William Jerome a felt maker. According to the London Apprenticeship Abstracts, a William Jerome was apprenticed in 1696 to George Hall of the Felt Makers Company, and it says he was of Scropton, Derbyshire originally, son of Robert Jerome a yeoman. William Jerome the felt maker father of Parmenas had a son named Robert, his eldest son as well.
