Lum (Lome) Genealogy


Lum
   "Lum" is English in origin. A habitational name from places in Lancashire and West Yorkshire called Lumb, both apparently originally named with Old English lum(m), meaning ‘pool’. In some instances, the name may be topographical for someone who lived by a pool, from the Middle English term lum(m).
   The "Lum" surname was first found among families in Northumberland, where they were Lords of the manor of West Denton. The family motto translates to, "By valour and faith." In the United States, descendants include President Ulysses S. Grant.
   Our family lineage can be traced back to JOHN LOME (1497 - 12 Dec 1579) of Sowerby, West Riding, Yorkshire, England, who married AGNES CRABTREE (d. 27 Mar 1564) on the fifth of August, 1543. They had a son, WILLIAM LOME (1552 - 1592) in Lighthaples, Yorkshire, England, who married AGNES BOYNSTOW.
   Their daughter, MARTHA LUM, married a Puritan named EDMUND WOOD, JR., on the 21st of May in 1611, in Halifax, York Co., England.
