The ancestors of the Rumley family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Cambridgeshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Romily, near Eure, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Rumley Early Origins



The surname Rumley was first found in Cambridgeshire where they were anciently Lords of the Manor. The family emerged from Normandy where they held a knights fee at Eure, in the arrondisement of Les Andelys, in the canton of Fleury-sur-Andelle. At what time Richard de Romilly arrived to have an interest in the villages of Girton and Barton in the county of Cambridge is unknown. There was conflict between two Norman nobles, Roger de Tosny and Richard de Romilly between 1190 and 1200. Overriding this dispute was another Norman Lord, Gilbert de Miners, who eventually lost these lands, and other unnamed lands in Buckinghamshire.

Rumley Spelling Variations

Rumley Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Remely, Remelly, Remilly, Remmilly, Remilley, Remiley, Romilly, Rommilly, Romiley and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Rumley or a variant listed above:
