Genealogy and history of Bomford families around the world
The Bomford family name is from the Norman 'Baumford', which has split into Bomford, Bamford, Bumford and other spellings. In the 1600s families with the Bomford spelling principally lived in Worcestershire. In the mid 1600s Laurence Bomford moved to Ireland and started a new branch of the family tree - though today you will not find the Bomford name in an Irish telephone directory. Emigration has seen Bomfords move all over the English speaking world.
