PUMPHREYS OF NEWFOUNDLAND
comments powered by
I'm looking for any Pumphreys who came from Newfoundland.
During the Irish Emancipation, Jeremiah Humphrey (then 22),came to Nfld. and changed his last name to Pumphrey. He married Bridget Barry (aged 14).
One of there sons, Michael, is my G-G-Grandfather. His daughter Helena, married Michael Sweeney and they eventually ended up in Vancouver, BC.
If this rings any bells for anyone, please let me know!
