Bamsey from Sussex
Hello, my name is Malcolm Bamsey and I am from Crawley in West Sussex UK. My father is Eric Bamsey who was born in Yorkshire.
My Uncle Niven Bamsey has also tried to trace the family genealogy and believes that we may also be related to the Bamsey's from Wales.
He has also heard that there maybe a spannish connection somewhere along the line and that a spannish sailor called "de Bamzie" jumped ship somewhere off the coast of mainland UK and settled here and changed his name. This may or may not just be a fancifull myth but I would be interested in finding out if anyone has any more information.
