Welcome to the genealogy site for the Lummis family name.
This site gives details of not only my own ancestors but many other instances of where the name has been found. There are also some theories as to the derivation of the name and its many variants which can now be found worldwide. If you have any further data to add, please use the Contact Form.
The main area of research is in Suffolk, England particularly Stoke Ash, Wickham Skeith and the surrounding area. I am indebted to Peter Ellis whose own research provided a lot of data when I was starting out and at a time when there was little in the way of data online.
There are Australian cousins following the emigration of Samman Lummis to Victoria in 1853 from Wickham Skeith, Suffolk. Lorraine Nicholson is a direct descendant of Samman and would welcome news from others interested in the Lummis name. Again.please use the Contact Form.

The Lummis name in the USA derives from Edward and Joseph Loomes who emigrated in 1635 from Essex or Suffolk and initially settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts. No connection has been made between the Lummis name in England to the families of Edward and Joseph Loomes.
