Study Description 

Whitmore is a parish and a village in the county of Staffordshire, England, near Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Whitmore can be found in the Domesday book.

Whitmore estate is one of very few properties in England that have not been sold in the last 935 years. It has remained in the same family since the Domesday Book was compiled in 1086, in the reign of William the Conqueror. The inheritance has sometimes passed through the female line, most recently in 1891 to Ellen Cavenagh nee Mainwaring (1845 – 1920). At least thirty-five generations have inherited Whitmore since a Saxon called Ulfac owned Whitmore and was usurped after the Battle of Hastings by a Norman knight who had supported William.


1066 to 1950.


1086 Households: 3 villagers. 2 smallholders; 1801 234; 1851 377; 1901 308; 1951 567.
