Links to other Lomax Sites


You’ve probably arrived here from our own Lomax Family History pages.   If not, you can follow this link to reach them.


The name ‘Lomax’ as used in our family derives from “Lumhalghs” – a place near Bolton, Lancashire – as explained by David Lomas on a web-site devoted to MediŠval English Genealogy.  An apparent variant ‘Lummis’ or ‘Lummas’ is found in Suffolk, but although listed under ‘Lomax’ in P H Reaney’s Dictionary of British Surnames, it is very clearly a different name, as argued persuasively by Eric T Lummis in an article in Suffolk Roots.

Our branch of the Lomax family seem to have been very run-of-the-mill, but there were some prosperous namesakes around, such as the Lomaxes of Great Harwood.

A number of personal web-sites include details of Lomax family history:

An attractive site, though with few details, is maintained by an Ann Lomax.   And Claire Bartram has a number of Suffolk Lomaxes in her tree.

And there are, of course, a welter of Lomax home-pages around:

Pam Lomax is Professor of Educational Research in the School of Teacher-Training at Kingston University in Surrey.  Across the pond, Joe Lomax teaches chemistry at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis.  A Canadian, Tony Lomax, has a page linking to various cartoon sites, including Snoopy and Garfield.

Off the subject of family-history, have you come across the Lomax kit-car – a sort of three-wheeled Morgan-lookalike?

There’s a wealth of more general sites on the web to help you with your genealogical researches.  Follow the link to see a few of our favourites.
