Early Origins of the Bumphrey family


The surname Bumphrey was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire at Pontefract, a borough, markettown, and parish, in the Upper division of the wapentake of Osgoldcross. "This place, which appears to have risen from the ruins of Legeolium, a Roman station in the vicinity, now Castleford, was by the Saxons called Kirkby, and after the Conquest obtained the name of Pontfrete, according to some, from Pontfrete in Normandy, whence sprang the Lacys, lords of Pontefract."
