St Mary's Church, Bury St Edmunds

My Lomax Family

This particular branch of the Lomax family can be traced back to the mid 1600s in Bury St Edmunds. Members have, over the years, migrated across the world, particularly to the US and Australia.

The Lomax name originated in England in Lancashire, and the earliest records date back to around 1200. Quite how they got to Suffolk, I have been unable to substantiate. I have managed to put together at least three family histories of Lomaxes in Suffolk - this one in Bury St Edmunds, another in Stanningfield, some 7 miles from Bury St Edmunds, and a very well documented line in Eye, around 30 miles from Bury St Edmunds. (The Eye family is well documented as they were very influential members of the aristocracy, and its members include some relatively well known politicians and churchmen)

Over the many years I have been researching these families, I have been unable to find anything, other than the name, that connects them. I am convinced there is a connection, and, with modern DNA technology, it will come to light.

The tree on this site is mostly fully sourced.

My Federer Family

My mother's Federer family originated in Pontremoli, midway between Genoa and Bologna in North West Italy, and some 170km from Florence.

The tree has only one source to date - my mother's Ahnenpass.This literally translates as 'Ancestor Pass', and was one of the forms of Ariernachweis (Aryan Certificate), issued by the Reichsverband der Standesbeamten in Deutschland e. V. (Reich Association of Marriage Registrars in Germany). My grandfather worked on the railways, and a 1933 Nazi law, the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service, required all public servants to be of Aryan descent.The Ahnenpass could be issued to citizens of other countries if they were of "German or racially related blood",and the document stated that Aryans could be located "wherever they might live in the world"

I consider this source to be reliable and trustworthy, albeit unorthodox.

This tree needs 'fleshing out' with more detailed research, so is considered far from complete.

My Gammon Family

This Gammon family tree originates in the village of Isleham, in Cambridgeshire.The family appears to have remained in the local area for many generations, with only a few members migrating from the locality.

Although the tree is mostly sourced, it was completed a long while ago, and can only be considered as 'work in progress' The great majority of sources need verifying, and some of the more recent events (from approximately the last six years) are missing.
