Bump Spelling Variations



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 Bump include Bumpus, Bonpas, Bumpasse, Bompase, Bumpuss, Bumpusse and many more.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Bump were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
