THomas GUMM, an ag labourer (and later farmer) of Ham Surrey, born about 1782, married Johannah(possibly Jones) before 1808.
They had Henry 1808, Edward 1810, Mary Ann 1812, Elizabeth Dec 1814,
Rebecca/Rebekah and Isaac(twins) 1817 and Dinah 1821. All but Henry were baptised at Kingston upon Thames Surrey.
I know where Henry went. Mary Ann married James New and stayed in Ham Surrey, her birthplace. Elizabeth married John Charles Abbott and went to Adelaide Australia in 1839. Isaac died aged two and Dinah died aged 4. Rebecca was my great great grandmother so I know where she was.... but I cannot find a birth or a death or a marriage for either Thomas or Johannah. Their names are recorded on their childrens' baptism registers so I know they existed. They are nowhere on any census so who were they and where did they go? Australia? Canada? USA?
Rebecca's marriage cert of 1843 gives father as Thomas Gumm, farmer. It does not say deceased but he certainly wasn't living in Ham in 1841.
There are plenty of Gumms in USA and some in Australia. Has anyone any suggestions as to where I might find them?
There were twins in the Gumm family down the generations.
Are there any Gumms in your tree. Do they have twins? Did they come from England.
