ORUM in Wiltshire, England
I am researching the family of William Orum, yeoman, of Garsdon, Wiltshire, England. He left a will which was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury on 18 March 1774.
His daughter Hannah Orum (baptised on 1 Jan. 1750/1 at Garsdon) was born of Mary Lea. I cannot find the record of any intermarriage between William Orum and Mary Lea.
Any Orum information would be welcome.
BTW, the surname is also spelt Oram in Wiltshire, and apparently derives from the same Norse word that gives rise to the modern word, worm. The root word means snake.
