‘I have 150 sɪʙʟɪɴɢs so parents use alphabet naming ᴛʀɪᴄᴋ to remember who is who’ he said.
Murray Blackmore, from the ᴇɴᴏʀᴍᴏᴜs Blackmore ᴘᴏʟʏɢᴀᴍᴏᴜs family, has revealed how his parents keep track of their ᴇɴᴏʀᴍᴏᴜs brood and don’t forget any names.
A teen from a huge ᴘᴏʟʏɢᴀᴍᴏᴜs family with one dad and 27 mums says his 150 sɪʙʟɪɴɢs are like a “litter of children.” Murray Blackmore, from Canada, is from the largest ᴘᴏʟʏɢᴀᴍᴏᴜs family in the world – but he says his scores of sɪʙʟɪɴɢs is all he’s ever known.
Explaining that he is his father’s 65th child, Murray took to TikTok to reveal how his parents keep track of all the kids in the family.
“What my parents did in my family, was name all the kids born in the same year – start with the same letter. So everyone in my age group’s name all starts with an ‘M’.”
Murray explained his family used to be part of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints – which is tied to the Mormon faith.
In previous videos, the sɪʙʟɪɴɢs revealed that the teenagers of the family don’t live with their mums, but in a “motel house.” The swarm of sɪʙʟɪɴɢs also attend their own school. The Blackmore family, based in British Columbia, Canada, are all related to super-dad Winston Blackmore, 64. Earlier this year, Murray’s sibling Merlin, 19, revealed what it was like to live in the world’s largest ᴘᴏʟʏɢᴀᴍᴏᴜs family.
The teen said he spent years trying to hide his alternative upbringing but now he’s moved to the US, he feels comfortable speaking out about it. He said he felt he had to get out of the community before he felt comfortable speaking about it.
Merlin, who has seven full sɪʙʟɪɴɢs, also explained the huge age gaps between the kids – with his oldest brother aged 44 and his youngest aged just one.
He said birthday parties are “pretty normal” within the community, but usually it’s only the full sɪʙʟɪɴɢs who buy presents for each other.
“Sometimes if there were a whole bunch of birthdays close together we would celebrate them as one big birthday party, but that didn’t happen very often,” he said.
Merlin’s full sibling Warren has also used TikTok to explain the family ties – claiming that among the 27 wives were six different groups of sisters. “There was two groups of three different sisters and there was four groups of four different sisters from another family,” he said.
Murray has also revealed how he spent his final year of schooling in a public school.
Murray’s TikTok videos have ᴀᴛᴛʀᴀᴄᴛᴇᴅ questions from inquisitive people all around the world who want to understand the ʟᴏɢɪsᴛɪᴄs of running such an ᴇɴᴏʀᴍᴏᴜs family.
One viewer asked: “How much does it cost to support a family like this? And what do your parents do to afford it?”
Murray replied: “Gardening and a community effort.”
When asked if he supports polygamy himself, Murray said: “I personally wouldn’t choose that lifestyle, but many of my sɪʙʟɪɴɢs have and I support their decisions to be happy.”
