About the Project

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

The Gumley Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the SRNM 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 Gumley 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 Gumleys), by time period (18th Century Gumleys), or by topic (Gumley DNA, Gumley Occupations, Gumley 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.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Hi Ruth, how exciting that you live so close to the village Gumley! My Great Aunt married Robert Hugh Gumley who was born here in the U.S. and his father Hugh Gumley was born in Edragole, Cavan, Ireland.
