The Irish Bomfords

About this site -


This site was created in February 2005, to make available on the internet Peter Bamford's hitherto unpublished work in three typewritten volumes, 'The Bomford Family of Ireland and Allied  Families'.

Peter's history was initially written in the 1980s, based on family records in his possession (now in the National Library in Dublin), and 'with the assistance of far too many relations, friends and officials to give thanks to individually'.  In 2004 and 2005 the three volumes were scanned, converted to text and updated, and Peter agreed to their publication on this site. Peter's has provided some comment on his work and there is also a list of sources.

A family tree of the Irish Bomfords was prepared based on Peter's history. It includes links to the relevant sections in Peter's work and has been revised as more information has come to hand.

There are many other documents and artefacts relating to the Bomfords of Ireland.  Where available on line, they have been linked to relevant sections of the site, using Peter's book as the organising skeleton.  We have also added links to internet resources for related families.
