LOMAS: the roots

Our branch of the Lomas family was first identified in Great Brington, Northants, around 1670, when it worked on the lands of the Spencer family in Althorp. Subsequently it moved to Staverton, Northants in 1724, then to Grandborough, Warwickshire in 1823.

With the development of the railways, my great-grandfather John Lomas moved to Derby in 1876.

The family name was Lummas until the marriage of John Lummas in 1823, when it became Lomas. Previously, it had been variously Lummas, Lumas, Lomas, Lommas, Lomes and Lummos!

This page traces 11 generations starting from the late 1600s in Brington (Northants) to John Lomas, born in the late 1940s in Derby.
