The founding heritage of the Groum family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Groum comes from when one of the family worked as a servant or attendant. Groom is a Old English word for a house servant; it was also applied to shephards. It is the word from which the surname Groum is derived.

Groum Early Origins



The surname Groum was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Groums to arrive in North America: Nicholas Groome, Ship's Captain, settled in Massachusetts in 1630 and wrote a book called "A Glass for the people of the northeast" describing the people and the coast of New England.
