My grandfather was James Adam Elmy born April 12 1885, at I think Blyford. He was one of the 8 children of John Elmy and Athalinda Robinson. I was put in touch with another Elmy in Newcastle by a researcher at the Ipswich records office and she gave me John Elmy baptised 1783 at Bly - married to Sarah Ward b 1760 at Leiston, who was our great great grandfather, is he your ancestor as well Martyn? My mother Alice Athalinda Elmy who died in 1998 was always fascinated by the fact that it is such a rare name. I see the name Alice Elmy goes back a long way.There are Elmy coats of arms in several East anglian churches and mention of a Robert de Ulmo (elm) in the chronical of Jocelyn of Brecland (written at Bury St Edmunds Abbey in C12th or is it C13th I can easily check). Any information gratefully received.
