Much of the original research on this family is the work of Wendy
Humpreys, although I have repeated a good deal of it. Wendy contacted

Three of Robert Porter's daughters married three generations of the Rickwood family. We are descended from
his daughter Martha, who was married to James Rickwood.
Robert's sons Robert and Charles were Coachbuilders too. Robert and his
son ,also Robert, were in Halstead Essex. Charles and his son George
were Coachbuilders in Gt Bardfield Essex.
George Porter, of Gt. Bardfield, was the owner of the Pine Tool Box I found in my
fathers garage. I don't know how he acquired it, but it fascinated me
and started my interest in family history.
