Broumton surname

Post by scotrail7 » Mon Sep 16, 2013 7:05 pm

My forebears in the Driffield area carried this rather rare spelling of BROUMTON. To my knowledge, it lasted for only two generations, ending with James Broumton, a missionary of Hudson Taylor's China Inland Mission. If anyone knows of any others, kindly inform me. Many thanks.

There are (were) quite a few Broumptons in the Driffield area. I have a James Broumpton (b. 1862 North Frodingham – d. 1947 Holderness District) who married my 10th cousin 3x removed Eleanor Witty (b. 1862 Leven – d. 1935 Beverley District) on 25 Apr 1887 at Holy Trinity Church, Leven. He was the son of Thomas Broumpton (1818-1889) and Rosamond Plowman (1819-1867). Thomas and Rosamund had at least 13 children and James and Eleanor had at least 8, including Laurence Broumpton who emigrated to North America. He married Gertrude Shapley on 09 Aug 1924 in Oxford, Ontario, Canada and died on 21 Dec 1965 in Detroit, Michigan.

Regards,
Ian

Thank you, Ian, for your reply to my query. I see where your Broumptons have yet another spelling of the name. So far, I have only two spellings of the name in my family, the primary one being BROUMTON, my paternal grandparents' name. The second one is that of BRUMPTON, the birth name of a James Brumpton b. 11 Sept 1798 at Langtoft, Yorkshire. I suspect that this James Brumpton did a name-change at one point and eventually moved to the London area where he married Eliza Fulton, and one of their children, Helen Sarah, becoming my paternal grandmother. But proving this speculation has so far been elusive.
Can you speak to, or have any information, on this particular spelling of the name?

Best regards, Ross

Ross,

I’m not directly related to the Broumton family but there is a link via the Lamplough family. James Brumpton’s niece Mary Brunton (Brumpton) (b. c1835) married Crosby Lamplough (1827-1902) in 1855 at Langtoft.

James’s parents, James (c1753-1838) and Mary (c1766-1832) Brumpton, had at least eight children. I’ve traced most of them but came up blank with James (junior), who seemed to disappear. Your suggestion that he went to London looks likely enough for me to adopt so thanks for that.

Cheers,
Ian

James Broumton and Eliza Fulton were my great great grandparents too through their daughter my great grandmother Mary Broumton who married Nathaniel Dixon. Another Broumton sister Elizabeth married Charles Judd and he too was with the China Inland Mission with his brother in ław James Broumton.
