  1. I read this history with great interest and found that I am related to Florence. My name is John William Shore and my lineage can be traced back to John Shore Born UK 1638 who married Sara Simms. I live in Newcastle ON Canada and found this research most interesting.

  2. Thank you for a concise and accurate account of Florence Nightengale’s family history. She is a second cousin several times removed. Our common ancestors are Samuel Shore and Margaret Diggles. Their grandson John Shore (1782-1864), who was the son of Samuel and Margaret’s son John Shore and his wife Gertrude Binks, is my third great grandfather. He emigrated to Canada with his wife Elizabeth Hardy shortly after their son Thomas Shore arrived in 1832. I was born and raised in London, Ontario, Canada, but now live in St. George, Utah, United States.

  3. my grandmother Polly Wood nee Shore lived in Sheffield and said there was some far distant connection to Florence Nightingale!. I am almost 90 yrs old and my grandmother died around 1951.She also told of a watch which was always passed down to the eldest son of Samuel Shore. Wonder if any of this can be confirmed??Would love an email if anyone has more stories.

  4. Congratulations on the time line you have provided. There are situations when a timeline provides quick reference to places, dates and events. I am cousin to Wendy Prins (above) also descended from Col. Thomas Shore who came to Westminster (just outside London, Ontario) and I reside in Columbus, Ohio.
