Welcome to the Gum Family Tree

This Gum (or Gumm) tree starts in Devizes, Wiltshire, England, and spreads to a large number of villages within the area. Although I haven't been able to trace this particular family back further, it is thought the name came from Germany with one of the invaders of England.

My first Gum (Roger) married Elizabeth Drew from Seend, where the connection to the Sumners occurs some generations later.

With nearly 12,000 individuals in my family tree it has become unmanageable for a single web site. Therefore it has been split into a number of smaller sites based on major family groups. This means that inevitably there is some overlapping of surnames.

The names that interest you may also be found in any of these sub-trees, so it's probably worth checking on the Index pages -


Sumner     Kennett (North Kent)     Kennett (South Kent)     Bruton    Few

Oram    Sherring    Seymour (Dukes of Somerset)     Gum     Shurmer     Hawker
