Just like London buses, I have not had many contacts from Canadian Gammons, and then two come along all at once!
I don’t have much information about Cindy Parke’s family yet, but I thought I would get a head start and publish what she emailed me in the first email. Interestingly, her father always said that he had German roots. This is the first time I have heard this about a Gammon family, so I would love to try and find out more.
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.
