The Bomfords of Worcestershire

Annotated Family Tree


About Bomford arms and crests

This family tree was started by Frances Emily Bomford b 1873 d 1959. She passed it to Christopher Heming Bomford, her nephew, b 1911. In 2001, he gave it to his son Peter Heming Bomford b 1941.

There is a concise version of this tree, which has the genealogical information but omits the historical and biographical detail.

Contributions have been made by many members of the family. Information also came from a search of the IGI ( the International Genealogical Index , made available by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ; numbers such as c074851 in the text generally refer to IGI entries ) , with a bit of guesswork as to marriages. Other valuable sources are freebmd (an index of births, marriages and deaths in the UK) and familyhistoryonline, which has the 1881 census plus many other Bomford records.

The tree has been available in several forms. As a diagram, it occupies several sheets of paper, totalling about three metres wide by 0.8 metres high. About seventy copies were circulated in this form in the 1970s. An extract from an early typed and handwritten tree is attached. The tree has been converted to an electronic database, as a GED file (right click on the link and select Save Target As or similar to save it to your computer. It will not open properly using an internet browser, but it can be read (sort of) with a text editor and can be opened properly with GED software (search for free GED readers on the internet). The GED version is no longer being maintained and does not reflect more recent changes to the tree below). The trees on this internet site were derived from Peter Bomford's original tree, with additional information from Kim Bomford, and have been updated since 2005 with information provided by members of the family and others interested in it.

Four digit 'I' numbers in this tree corresponded with the electronic number given to each individual in the original GED database file.

If you have corrections, updates, or biographical information that can be added to the tree please contact us. It would be useful if contributors could provide some information as to the authority of the source, for the record. Links to other family trees, particularly those of the female lines that lost the Bomford name, and to Bomford or related family websites or other relevant information on the internet would be most welcome. More specific dates of births, marriages and deaths would be most welcome, but we would like an assurance that living people have given consent to having more specific information about themselves published on this site. As a rule, we will not put direct contact information onto this website, but are happy to include links to personal websites.

A note on spelling. Spelling of names has generally followed that in Peter's database, though alternatives are occasionally given where they have been used in other versions of the family tree. To take one example, I0007 Mary Hiron has also been recorded as Maria Hyerne or Mary Hifon. There is a local family called Hirons, pronounced in the area 'Iyerns'. At this stage it is hard to tell which was the 'correct' spelling at the time. The name Heming is common in the tree, but is sometimes spelt with one M and sometimes with two. Peter Heming Bomford says, 'All the people I know who hold that name spell it with one M so I suggest using that. However, the original Hemming family used two Ms. The single M version probably arose because of a convention by which a double letter used to be written as a single with a horizontal dash above.'


It has been said that between 1216-1272 Henry III gave lands to the Bomfords. The records of the College of Arms show there is a place called Bamford in Derbyshire; another Bamford originally Baumford which is old Norman French and would have been pronounced Bomford, near Bury, Lancashire. These lands were held by Thomas de Baumford.

The name has been spelt in different ways, Bamford, Bomford; Bumford. This was down to the scribe who would have written the names down at the time.

We have early records of other Bomfords living at Arrow and at White Ladies Aston, but cannot yet link them to the tree below.


The earliest identified Bomford from whom we can trace the living family is:

I0001 Thomas Bomford, b c1580, lived in Coughton, Warwickshire

He was a tenant farmer near Arrow, Warwick. He had two sons that we know of:

1a I0002 Thomas Bomford, of Arrow, b 1612

1b I0003 Laurence Bomford, b 1617, d 1720 at County Meath, Ireland, m 1650 I0006 Eleanor Chevenix, b 1633, d 1722. Laurence went to Ireland and started the Irish branch of the family. (Documents relating to Laurence's son Oliver suggest that Laurence was probably born and married about 20 years later than these dates, though the date of death is correct - 1.6.1. If the revised dates are correct, then he may not have been I0002 Thomas' brother.)

Thomas and Laurence both fought for Oliver Cromwell at the battle of Worcester in 1651. Tradition has it that Oliver Cromwell called in at the farm house where the Bomfords lived on his way to Worcester on 22 August 1651, and there was entertained. The legend continues that he tethered his horse and sat under a yew tree, were he read his Bible. He went into the house were he is said to have written a letter. The farmhouse still survives to today as two dwellings. Alternatively, I0935 Nicholas Bomford advises ( email 7 Mar 2007) that Peter Bomford's father Christopher wrote to him in 1990: "The house ... at Wyre, used to be down the lane towards the Mill – when I first tried to find it, about 1938, I was told that it had been cleared away a few years before that. It had been a timber framed house with soft ‘wattle and daub’ fillings – similar to the oldest ones at Atch Lench – I should expect." Nicholas couldn't make the dates work and Christopher agreed no Bomfords were likely to have been at the house at the time of the battle, 1651. They hadn't yet moved from Arrow. The visit would have been on August 29 because J.W. Willis Bund reconstructed Cromwell's movements and where he stayed during the week he moved on Worcester, setting his troops, and that is the date he would have passed the house. Alternatively, it might have been the Bomfords of White Ladies Aston who enjoyed Cromwell's company.

It is said that there were Bomfords living at Wyre or Wyre Piddle near Pershore. They were probably puritans and sympathetic with Parliament in the great struggle for faith and freedom in the 17th century.

1a I0002 Thomas Bomford, of Arrow, b 1612, the elder son, stayed in the area. Thomas was probably a tenant farmer of the Earl of Coventry who lived at Croome Court, near Pershore. Thomas married and had two sons

2a I0004 John Bomford of Arrow, b 1655, d Arrow m 1675 I0007 Mary Hiron (or Maria Hyerne), b 1645 (i.e. 10 years older than her husband: he was 20 and she was 30 when they married, if these dates are correct) and had issue. A special licence from the Bishop of Worcester was necessary for them to be married, but it is not known why. Perhaps John was 20, or perhaps banns hadn't been read

3a I1267 Jana Bomford b c1685 (i.e. 10 years after the marriage, and when her mother was 40, if the dates are correct)

3b I0008 John Bomford, b c1686 m I0009 Alice and had issue. Information on the descendents of this couple has been updated by Kim Bomford (email 19 Feb 2015). Kim says they are from Staffordshire so probably do not fit in here, but they have been left in for the time being

4a I0010 John Bomford b c1702 , m I1273 Hannah Wright in 1725.  (I0008 John Bomford, I0010 John's father, would have been 16 when I0010 John was born if the dates are correct)

The house where Thomas lived in Wyre has now disappeared. He and Elizabeth were buried at Pershore Baptist Chapel, but the grave is lost. Early chapel records no longer exist. He might have been born about 1702. There is an IGI entry for the marriage of Thomas Bomford and Elizabeth Heming of Atch Lench on 24 May 1724, at Throckmorton. Elizabeth's parents had 'The Firs' farm at Atch Lench. As the only child, the farm passed to her and eventually to her son Heming. 'Mrs Heming' is recorded as having made a contribution to the funds of the Pershore Baptist Chapel in 1725. This is the earliest recorded instance of a family member making a financial contribution to the Baptist cause. She was probably Elizabeth's mother, widow of John Heming (d 1713), copyholder of the manor of Atch Lench, who lived at 'The Firs'. Elizabeth inherited the copyhold, which passed to her son Heming. Lords of the manor were the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey

None of EGCB's aunts is possible. Kim Bomford's tree (as at 2005) records this 'Someone' as Edith Wenden London. Probate records for Frank Oliver Bomford indicate his widow was Edith Bomford. An Edith Bomford of Malvern is recorded separately in probate as dying as a widow on 8 Jun 1935: probate was granted to Sydney Evans. No children.

8d I0438 Frances Emily Bomford, b 6 Nov 1873 at Atch Lench, d 27 Mar 1959 at Atch Lench buried at Atch Lench. Spent her whole life in the Atch Lench area, first at the Manor House and then, from 1946, at the Manse with older sister Margaret. She has left some not bad water colours and poems, but was overshadowed by Margaret in this respect. A serious student of local history, she published a series of articles in the local parish magazine and allegedly deposited a more detailed manuscript in the Worcs county archive. She also edited two booklets of the memoirs of her father George Frederick under the title 'Other days Other Ways', a history of the local Baptist Church and a booklet of selected letters of a Hemming cousin (Alcester) to her brother. In the late 1920s and early thirties she put together the foundation of this family tree, visiting graveyards, checking archives and speaking to relatives. Much of the travelling that this involved was by bicycle. In about 1936 she handed her manuscript (containing about 400 names) to her nephew I0449 Chris Bomford, telling him that it was now up to him to continue the work. He did so, expanding the list to over 700 names, adding a section on the Bomfords of County Meath and re-drawing it in a most attractive and comprehensible form. He supplied copies (originally duplicated by Bomford and Evershed) to Bomfords all over the world. In 2001, his 90th year, he handed over the care of the Family Tree to me, his son Peter. She used to take me for walks, often to Church Lench across the fields and over the brook. I was sometimes allowed to carry the walking stick with the woodpecker's head handle

In addition to the grange farm he owned a farm at Aldington and was tenant of the Atch Lench farm. At some time he had visited the Argentine and I was always interested in the plaited leather lasso that hung over a doorway as a souvenir of this visit. He also had a player piano which no longer worked in my memory. No children, but Annette's niece Lilian Morrow came to live with them and stayed on to care for Fred in his old age

His installation and photographic work has been exhibited internationally and he has participated in residencies in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. His work often focuses on the power dynamics established by constructed spaces and takes the form of large-scale rambling improvisational architectural installations. The projects follow a methodology he calls ‘thinking through building’ in which construction takes on an emergent quality rather than an illustrative one. Concurrent to this installation work is a rigorous photographic practice that oscillates between research for and documentation of the installation works. Cedric holds an MFA from the Malmö Art Academy (2007) and a BFA from Emily Carr University (2003)" (

Fought at Ypres and at Cambrai. Returned and took over the management of the farm in 1920. Established an arboretum at Springhill. Supervised the siting of each tree from his upstairs window to ensure all were visible. His grandson, Philip Sale, says (email 15 Nov 2016) his grandfather was a successful businessman but ruthless; that as a child he often accompanied his grandfather on inspections of the farm, and if grandfather came across a labourer who did not doff his cap, he would strike him with his walking stick and lambast him for not showing due respect. J Maurice Stokes of Severn Stoke near Worcester had set up the business J M Stokes Ltd. He had said he wanted James to run his business. On JM's death, James was chief executor. The two companies were merged as Stokes Bomford with James as managing Director. He retired in 1964 and his son Bill succeeded him. Bill left the company in the 1970s.
