About the Project

  • This ONS is up for grabs if you'd like to be manager

The Dumbell Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Dumbell name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Dumbell name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Dumbells), by time period (18th Century Dumbells), or by topic (Dumbell DNA, Dumbell Occupations, Dumbell Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

The surname Dumbell originates from the Anglo-Saxons and is a locational name from Sussex, England. The first syllable Dum is from Olde English Pre 7th Century dun (meaning "down") and the second syllable is bre (meaning "hill"), giving the meaning "hill on the downs".

I've traced the Dumbell surname back to George William Dumbell who was born (1832) in the Isle of Man, England. I am 10 degree's from George.
