Frankum Early Origins



The surname Frankum was first found in Huntingdonshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Frankum Spelling Variations



Frankum has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Spelling variants included: Francome, Francom, Francombe, Frankham, Fransham, Framsham, Frankcombe, Franckcombe, Frankum, Francum, Francomb and many more.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Frankums to arrive on North American shores: George Francomb, who arrived in America in 1722; John Francomb, who settled in Ontario in 1871; as well as Samuel Francombe, who settled in New York in 1832..
