So, it has been a day of catching up with recent contacts.

James GAMMIN recently got in touch with me. He is curious about the origin of his surname. As far as he knows, he and his brother are the only ones left carrying the name on.

I would love to know if the name is connected with the Gam(m/b)on name, or is a distinct surname of it’s own.

Lets find out!

Nova Scotia, Maine and New Hampshire

This afternoon, I responded quickly to a query from David GAMMON who has family connections with Nova Scotia, Canada and has also researched other GAMMON lines in Maine and New Hampshire. He has traced his family back to John GAMMON (born around 1733) who moved to Nova Scotia, Canada around 1755. This John Gammon’s wife is either Frances or Lucy (born around 1737).

I have done some uncompleted work on some Gammons in Nova Scotia and New Hampshire. One day soon, I should fish it out and try and finish it.

In any case, if you are reading this and you have Gammon families in Canada or the USA then please do get in touch. I might at least be able to put you in touch with other researchers.


Mary Bubbles GAMMON

Thanks to a fellow GoONS member reading the North Devon Journal, I was made aware of the following announcement on the 18th July 2013:

I was not able to accurately identify her in my indexes. So I hope one day a family member will get in touch and I can get some more information about her.

For the record, an extract of the announcement is stored on my “Unlinked” family group page:
