Blumire History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Blumire family


The surname Blumire was first found in Derbyshire where the name is a metonymic occupational name for an iron worker from the Middle English "blome" meaning an ingot of iron. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Hanks, Patricia and Flavia Hodges, A Dictionary of Surnames. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1988. Print. (ISBN 0-19-211592-8)
By extension, the name was derived from "the bloomer," a worker at a bloomery, or bloom-smithy. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Another reference is more specific: " a 'bloom' is a mass of iron that has gone a second time through the fire - Anglo Saxon bloma; and bloomary, hence probably a Bloomer was a person employed in the manufacture of iron." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
One of the first records of the name was found in Derbyshire in 1202 when William Blomere was listed in Pipe Rolls at that time. The Assize Rolls of Staffordshire list Robert le Blomere there in 1279. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Johannes Blomer, smyth and Johannes Blomere. Later Henry Blewmer and William Blumer were both listed in Yorkshire in 1513 and 1515. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Blumire include Blomer, Bloomer, Bloomar, Bloomere, Blomere, Blome and many more.

Migration of the Blumire family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Blumire were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Mercy Bloomer, who arrived in New York in 1703; Anne Bloomer, who landed in Virginia in 1717; Joshua Bloomer, who landed in New York in 1769; Francis Bloomer, who landed in Pennsylvania in 1776.
