I have just started to research my paternal grandmother's family - Pumfrey or Pumphrey from Great Yarmouth (Norfolk) England.
I have very little to go on.
Things I know: My grandmother was Ada Mildred Pumfrey born 1891 in Great Yarmouth. She had several siblings includingHarold, Clarence, James and Flo, plus others. At least one brother was killed in WW1. She married a Mr Burgess prior to meeting my grandfather.
Things I've been told: There was a James Pumfrey (born 1890) of Gt. Yarmouth killed in WW1, son of J. Pumfrey, 57 Quay Street, Yarmouth. Also in 1883 The Bush Inn at 15, Quay St was run by a James Pumfrey. My grandmother's father worked in some official capacity at the harbour, possibly harbourmaster.
If this is familiar to anyone, please get in touch! Thank you.
